    Crank Sports. Legitimate or Multi Level Marketing?

    While researching the web for sports drinks and gels I ran across E-Fuel and E-Gel from Crank Sports. It all sounded good so I thought I would buy some samples. This led me to their discount program which is structured like a MLM scheme.

    So this leads me to wonder if their products are legit or not. Can anyone let me know? Thanks.

    Sounds more like you just get product discounts for referrals, and not cash so it's not really an MLM. The discounts are a way of maintaining customer loyalty and gaining word-of-mouth marketing. E-caps/Hammer Nutrition does pretty much the same thing only simpler. Anyone you reffer gets 15% off and you get a 25% credit.

    they seem quite legit to me...

    J..Dog,

    I purchased some of their gels and drinks based on a tip in the Women's Lounge. I've used the gel and it does the job as well as others, just isn't as sweet, which is what I wanted. Haven't tried the drinks yet, but will let you know.
