Ultimate Home Profits turned out to be a disappointing buy that frankly can be interpreted as a scam, because of how it’s marketed, its “creators” being fake a number of other things I’ll get into in this review.
Quick Report on Ultimate Home Profits:
Creator: Ultimate Home Profits by Michelle Robinson and possibly also Cami White?
Price: $97, but by hitting the back button over and over, you can decrease the price to $47. There are 2 up-sells following the purchase, 1 VIP type package for $147 down sold to $79 and the second up-sell is a coaching call for $19.97 they say is valued normally at $379. How much time you get to talk to the “coach” is unknown.
Overall Rating: 1 out of 10 stars.
Maybe if I purchased the up-sells, it would be better, BUT for the regular Ultimate Home Profits program that was $47, there’s just not enough training or specifics to really help you in my opinion.
Ultimate Home Profits in a nutshell:
It’s a membership website where you get very basic lessons on drop shipping, how to market on e-bay, and also affiliate marketing. Aside from this, the rest of the website has additional resources that appeared blank for me. I first though they weren’t working, but I think it’s because I didn’t purchase the up-sells that they didn’t show up.
I also believe Ultimate Home Profits is possibly recycled over from Excel Cash Flow because I saw several instances within the program (including the up-sell area) where the name itself was mentioned as well as that programs creator, Cami White.
It’s entirely possible they took some or even all of the framework of the Excel Cash Flow program and copied it over to this. For example (look at the grey text at the bottom. See it?):
You can find that information somewhere in the members area, which I’ll give you a tour on right now, but before I do I think it’s also very important to share that these types of programs are usually pitched across work at home special report sites that are commonly scam pages that are fake.
The best way to explain this program is to just walk you though every menu item you see in the image above.
Welcome: It’s just a video and number to call to schedule. But there is also a link to this area which takes you to a place which offers you a “free” site but ONLY if you pay for hosting (that’s the catch).
Getting started: There are 3 sections to this place:
- An image which says your website and links to the same offer you get in the welcome page.
- An image that links you to a the same number to call as you also see in the welcome page, nothing more.
- A customer support image (gives you a support number to call in case you have questions).
Web traffic: This section has 12 videos and the goal is to mainly teach you about list building, an all too common and at times outdated approach to making money. The training in this section is divided between how to use a program called Aweber for the list building part while the rest “teaches” ways to generate traffic for your website.
Now teach is really not a good word to describe these methods. You don’t really learn many tedious things, just really an overview in each video of the different traffic methods. I can personally use this sort of information because I have experience with online business so I’m familiar with what they’re trying to explain, but anyone who is very new is going to have problems in my opinion…
Affiliate: This section is also a broad explanation of affiliate marketing. There’s 5 of them and you learn about things such as making affiliate links on Clickbank, compiling keywords for product promotions as well as how to take websites you’re aiming to promote for, copy them over and add a web form to them so you can collect emails.
Ebay books: 3 PDF’s on ebay topics. One is 46 pages and the other 2 are both 10 pages long. Underneath these books are 5 videos related to the ebay topic, but I couldn’t see them. I would just get a blank window show up. As I said earlier, I think it’s because I didn’t have access to them.
Drop shipping eBooks: There’s only 2 here, one is 25 and the other is 19 pages. Drop shipping is very different from traditional affiliate marketing, but it is a business option many people do enjoy doing.
The Master List: It’s just 2 things:
A list of the top 10 selling products on Clickbank which you can actually see on their main website by simply visiting marketplace. Also just because it’s in the top 10 doesn’t mean it’ll sell like crazy for you.
These products and their topics range around the money topic, but if you don’t know them, how are you going to sell them? I’m just saying this list isn’t really important. As long as you have a topic you really like, you can always find products and hot selling products surrounding that.
There is an index of affiliate markets also listed and there’s close to a 100 of them. Again in my opinion, this doesn’t really help much if you don’t know what you want to promote.
People seem to mistake quantity as being some sort of definition of value or wealth. In a way it is, but if you don’t know what to do with it, what value does it have? None. Therefore you need training on HOW to use those sorts of things and the training in Ultimate Home Profits is just too broad. Here’s some real training from my top program Wealthy Affiliate!
VIP: Well this is the up-sell section and there’s 3 parts to it, but all of them aren’t accessible to me.
Final Rating: Ultimate Home Profits
1 out of 10 stars. Nothing ultimate about it in my opinion, although that doesn’t include the parts of the site which I wasn’t able to see.
My final thoughts:
Can it be argued that Ultimate Home Profits is a scam? It definitely can and based on just the things I saw, the quality of the training in there, the price ($47, but possibly $97 for those who don’t know there’s a discount!) and especially the money making claims this site makes, I would say it’s a scam.
If you take all of the content inside the site which is basically just the video training and exclude the up-sells, consultation call and hosting offer they give you, you really don’t get a lot in my opinion. The videos do take sometime to listen through, but the practical value you can extract from that and really use is very little.

I received an email from a breaking news site and when I visited, read more of the story and then the ultimate home profit website offer came up. I read through the whole thing and it seemed legit. I paid the $97 and it was nothing like I expected, then started looking at all the comments and realized I got ripped off. Let’s hope I can get a hold of someone to get my money back.
Call your bank or credit card company and tell them you did not authorize the transaction and they should be able to get you your money back.
I signed up for this program and I’m trying to get a full refund but so far, every time I send an email, it just says that the host user doesn’t exist, I don’t know what to do.
That’s not good Erik. Contacting their support is obviously not going to fix this, call your cc company.
I called their customer service and talked to a representative, she was only able to give me 75% refund. So, I spoke to a manager and he said the same thing. He said it was because my account was open and I had “used” the account. My account had only been open for a few days!! How “used” could it be? Lol. Something they don’t tell you on their website and they should because its ridiculous! Unfortunately, they do lead you to believe there’s a full refund though don’t they…
I’ve never heard of such a bogus policy Becca and I would not accept the amount they have refunded. It’s a digital good you’re using, it CANNOT depreciate in my opinion because it isn’t physical so what they’re saying about it being used just sounds ridiculous!
You did not like your purchase, you though you could get 100% back, so fight for it and if it doesn’t work through them directly, file a complaint via your cc. If they send you a dispute form, fill it out with everything you said to us here including what they claimed and how you were misled.
Scam, scam, scam. Promised 100% of my money back, no questions asked but I had to fight on the phone and threaten sicking the CC company on them. They first offered 33% back then 75% and then I had to ask for a manager, waited for 15 minutes and she tried the same ploy. I did convince her they need to give me a full refund but it was nothing like they advertised. NO, NO, NO, don’t get suckered in.
What a SCAM! They take your $97.00 and then you are supposed to receive paperwork to get started. NEVER RECEIVED. I was suppose to hear from my MENTOR, who never did what he said he was going to do and he would set up an appointment time and then he never called. I would love to get my money back, but I am not holding my breath! They should be ashamed.
This paperwork you’re talking about Judy. Was it some sort of questionnaire? I see those a lot in these programs.
If they ask you to spend money, chances are you will not have good results and likely to be a scam. There are plenty of legit work from home jobs to try that do not require you to pay them any money. They may require you to purchase certain equipment or software based on the requirements needed to access and use their system. For example, Comcast has some work from home sales opportunities. There are other companies that hire people to work from home provided they can make it into the office possibly once a month for a meeting. Convergys provides work at home opportunities, such as inbound call processing, such as, customer support service for companies they contract work with that you only need to have a wired internet connection, a noise reduction wired headset, and a corded phone line. The reason for being wired is for security purposes and they provide you with warning ahead of time for things you will need so you can buy them. You go through a test system and training. Liveops is another legitimate work from home site and there are more. How you get paid depends on job and may require filing a 1099 as a contracted self-employed worker or may allow you to get paid with a W-2. There are also some that may require you to buy “kits” but these will be reasonable, such as I found a crafting company that will pay you based on your work. Your kit payment is basically a down payment and to teach you how to make the items. If you prove to do a good job, they will send you as many materials as you can handle. There are also “administrative support” sites that if you are good with this type of work you can work as a virtual assistant, such as scheduling meetings, scheduling travel arrangements, creating reports, and other things a normal assistant might do on a computer. So, there are plenty of options without getting dragged into scams like these. You just have to know how to spot a scam and research properly.
Good information Jami, thanks for taking the time to write and share this information! But I always stick to one company to find them all (Wealthy Affiliate) and it’s not a scam, although it’s more geared towards business, not the types of jobs you listed so it’s really a matter of what the person wants to achieve.
I appreciated reading your comments about “Wealthy Affiliate” in response to the other comments about “Ultimate Home Profits.” I had received an email “invitation” and was considering Michelle Robin’s program before reading everyone’s dissatisfaction with their purchases. Since you are so happy with “Wealthy Affiliate,” would you mind, please, providing me with more information on that program: how long you’ve been with them, how much you invested (if any fees were asked), etc. Please, if you do respond, type in the subject line “The Wealthy Affiliate Information you requested” so I know it’s from you…thank you.
Hi Cheryl, trust me, this message is directly from me. You can tell by the picture associated with my message (it’s my face) and only I can post this :). Anyway, concerning Wealthy Affiliate (the info you requested!), all that information is on the page I set up to explain about that program (how long I’ve been there, my results, ect…). Please check out that page.
How do I get to your site to see what you are saying. I want to work from home for a company and don’t know how to find ones that aren’t scams. I don’t have to get rich, just want to make extra money each month.
Do you know any legitimate companies hiring at home work for virtual assistants? I am not having any luck finding them. Also, do you know of any other sites that offer working at home with no start up cost? I cannot find anything legitimate, everything has a start up fee. Thanks for all your help.
Hi Debbie, I know you asked Jami about this, but I’d like to say the only place I know that doesn’t have any start up costs is Wealthy Affiliate, but it isn’t a place where you work for someone, but you do learn about business.
What do you mean it is not a place where you work for someone? I thought that was a company you do work for out of home. I am confused. Please explain what the place is. Thanks!!
Hi Debbie, when you look at the official webpage of Ultimate Home Profits and then the page before you buy it, there’s stuff on both pages that lead people like me to expect you’re going to working as an employee for someone, but from home. That’s just not it though. Ultimate Home Profits shows you how to basically work online, but with other companies other than itself.
Thank you for letting me know.
I just purchased this today, I even purchased cool handle, problem I have not received an email from either company. IS THIS HOW YOU MAKE MONEY? NO PRUDUCT!! NO HELP!!!!
No there is definitely training Rhonda. I was able to get to it, although it wasn’t good. I don’t remember how I got there, but it wasn’t simple because they run you through up-sells, but they have to send you some sort of log in access to the email you subscribed under. If they don’t or you’re not happy, do what I would do in your situation and that’s dispute it.
I had bad problems with cool handle. They immediately within 30 took 277.00 out of my account and it was suppose to be broken up. I threatened to go to the attorney general. They didn’t give a crap. There is a guy who was trying to get a number of people together to sue them and I told him I wanted in but nothing took place. I reported them to BBB.org. If you go to BBB.org and put in cool handle you will see mine and others complaints. This took place almost three years ago.
Very unfortunate stuff Anna, but is Cool Handle the program which was pitched to you from Ultimate Home Profits? I know they pitch you a hosting company, just wanted to make sure.
No. Cool handle is a mess all its own
I see, I just realized the person before you also commented on it as being part of the program, so that confirms it. In any case, were you able to get some sort of refund for the charges?
Yes, I’d like to learn how to really make money online that is not a scam and is not going to cost a fortune for worthless information. Thanks Ellen Kelley
Hi Ellen, please take a look at Wealthy Affiliate, that’s the one you’ll like. I put up a review of the program, thanks.
@Ellen, make sure you read my post. Just use common sense to know if its a scam or not. Those that try to keep you on a page and drop their price, well some may not exactly be considered scams, but they are geared to make you spend a lot of money and likely not get what you spent back before you give up. It can be successful for some, but usually not for most. Best to look for ones that don’t require you to pay them, as most that do are scams or not worth the money you spend on them. Keep in mind you can work for yourself also if you have any kind of talent or idea that you can market. Such as, if you make handcrafted items, there are sites that you can set up a free shop to sell. If it goes well, you can upgrade the shops with better selling tools for as little as $5 to $10 a month to assist. If you have a unique marketable idea I think it is Zulily or something like that, I believe it starts with a Z that specializes in helping people who have unique items they want to sell. Another site lets you offer services or products for $5 each. So, say you have a product that costs under $5 to make, you can offer it there for $5, I believe the site is called Fiverr. Or, you could offer to write a report for $5, or give expert advice on something, or pretty much anything you can think of someone might pay $5 for and be interested in. THere are mock jury sites, but you have to get chosen to participate in those. You don’t get paid, but you get free items if you sign up for product testing sites like bzzagent or smiley360. You have to get chosen to test those, but I have already gotten things like type of vitamins, tea, snacks, pizza, pasta and sauce, a hairdryer, and other free items to test, and happen fairly often. I am thinking of starting a blog to help people finding legit sites, but there are other sites out there geared to finding legit places to work at home and get free things and such. Look for them. That is how I find them.
