Welcome to my Aegea Review.
Is Aegea a scam?
This is what you will want to know before you join any opportunity.
You don’t want to spend a bunch of time and money on a program for it to end up being a scam and lose all the time and money that you put into it later on.
We are going to take a look at the company and who is behind it, the products or service Aegea offers and the compensation plan, and how it structured to determine if the company.
The reason why I decided to take a closer look at the Aegea opportunity is that I have seen some promotions floating around and thought it was interesting so figured I would do some research.
So with that, let’s go ahead and dive down and get started.
Aegea Company Overview
Aegea is an MLM company that offers health and wellness products in the form of a very interesting product.
John Prosser and Jeff Cohen are the co-founders of Aegea and the company is based out of Atlanta Georgia.
Here is the home office address:
- The Avalon Center
8000 Avalon Blvd
Alpharetta, GA 30009
John is “claimed to be a great humanitarian, a supporter of national medical issues and social change architect”.
Although there is no such documentation found for John, Jeff on other hand has a great resume.
Jef was Chief Marketing Officer for Mona Vie back in 2011.
Before Mona Vie, Jeff held positions in Coca-Cola, Kellogg’s, NBC, CBS, and Turner Broadcasting.
As you can see, Jeff has a stellar background.

Aegea Products Review
The Aegea products are centered around what the company calls “quantum resonance technology”.
Apparently, this is a vibrational bio-field that offers natural frequency energy that works when you wear it.
Basically, it is supposed to “balance your natural energy” that is naturally occurring in your body but is distributed by our processed foods and pollution that surrounds us.
Balancing your natural energy is supposed to make you become more healthy.
The first product that Aegea released was the “Quantum Card”.
To be honest I don’t have a clue on what it exactly does for you other than what the company website has as far as a description which I feel is an over-hyped sales pitch of nothingness.
The products remind me a lot of that wearable bracelet that had magnets in them to be totally honest.
Those magnet bracelets were huge a few years ago but found to be a hyped product that was driven by a placebo effect.
Either way, the company claims that their technology balances the body and gives you a positive effect on energy, and overall health.
These cards are supposed to change the substance that you consume or even wear into an incredible substance that is supposed to make it super, I guess.
I’m sorry if I am being a bit sarcastic here, but these types of products are not realistic to me, additionally, there is no scientific data supporting these claims.
Aegea also has additional products that include:
- Nitro QuBits – These are 6 packs of hologram discs that retail for $60. (this one claims it will boost your nitric oxide and help with circulation)
- Energetics Relief – Some more hologram discs that come in a 6 pack and retail for $70. (this one claims it will boost your nitric oxide and help with the circulation with additional mood-enhancing abilities)
- EMF Shield – Another hologram disc that comes in a 2 pack and retail for $60. (this one claims to help the fight against the negative vibes that we get from microwave, cell phones, and any other electrical device that we use)
- Freshness Card – This is a card that retails for $70. (this one claims to bring out the Life Energy in ALL consumable foods and drinks that we are about to eat or drink to make them healthier and taste better)
Apparently, they also have a Collector’s Card and a Gold Card as well that is not listed but probably will do more amazing things as well.
The Gold Card apparently has trace amounts of actual gold within it and will retail for $20 per card.
There is not too much information about the “Collector’s Card” but without a doubt should be able to produce amazing results with the claims the company makes.
I don’t know about these ones?
The next section of my review will cover the compensation plan and how you can earn commissions.

The Aegea Compensation Plan Breakdown
The Aegea Compensation Plan has a binary MLM pay structure.
The way that to make more money within the pay plan is through recruiting efforts and moving up in rank.
The way that a binary compensation plan works is you will have 2 legs, a right and a left.
You will always need to have an active personal referral on your left leg, and one on your right leg.
In most companies, you can determine whether you want to rotate between the 2 legs for every new referral or designate any particular leg.
You will want to get to the point where the 2 legs are producing similar amounts of volume, that way you can maximize the earning with a binary structure.
This almost never works out perfectly but that would be the rule of thumb… if one leg is bigger than the other, then with your efforts to the smaller producing leg.
The first section of the compensation plan I want to cover is how you qualify to move up in rank and each rank itself.
Here is a breakdown of the Aegea ranks.
Aegea Ranks and Qualifications
Aegea has 9 levels of ranks that you can qualify for.
Here are the ranks that you can achieve with the qualifications you will need within the Aegea comp plan.
- Affiliate Rank – Simply sign up as a distributor for Aegea
- Bronze Rank – To qualify for this rank you will need to maintain a 40 BV autoship each month autoship and personally refer 2 members
- Bronze Elite Rank – To qualify for this rank you will need to maintain a 40 BV autoship each month and personally refer 4 members
- Silver Rank – To qualify for this rank you will need to maintain a 40 BV autoship each month and personally refer 6 members
- Silver Elite Rank – To qualify for this rank you will need to maintain a 40 BV autoship each month and personally refer 8 members
- Gold Rank – To qualify for this rank you will need to maintain a 40 BV autoship each month and personally refer 10 members
- Gold Elite Rank – To qualify for this rank you will need to maintain a 40 BV autoship each month and personally refer 12 members
- Platinum Rank – To qualify for this rank you will need to maintain a 40 BV autoship each month and personally refer 16 members
- Platinum Elite Rank – To qualify for this rank you will need to maintain a 40 BV autoship each month and personally refer 20 members
As you can see the main 2 criteria to increase your rank is to maintain a 40BV personal autoship and sponsor more and more people.
Aegea Retail Commissions
Aegea offers retail commissions with its compensation plan.
Retail Commissions are earned when you sell the products that Aegea offers to customers who are not already members of the company.
Basically, the commissions earned are the difference that you can purchase the product as a member for the wholesale price compared to the retail price.
Sponsorship & Unilevel Commissions
Aegea pays out what they call a sponsorship bonus or another term would be a fast start bonus.
When new member purchases one of the starter packages you will get a fast start commission.
Depending on the package they purchase, you will earn different commissions, also you will earn these commissions that can be earned through several members of your team.
I will explain below but first, these are the packages:
- The Starter Pack – This package will cost $99 for a new member.
- The Freshness Pack – This package will cost $199 for a new member.
- The Executive Pack – This package will cost $399 for a new member.
- The Quantum Builder Pack – This package will cost $999 for a new member.
The commissions that are paid out are with a unilevel compensation plan structure.
The unilevel compensation plan structure is designed like this:
- Level 1 – Your personally referred members only will fall on level 1 only.
- Level 2 – The members that are sponsored by your personally referred members or members on level 1 will fall here.
- Level 3 – Members that are sponsored from Level 2 members will fall here.
- and so on…
You can earn through 7 levels for the sponsorship bonus which are.
- Level 1 – For personally referred members only you will earn 60% on their first purchase.
- Levels 2 and 3 you will earn 10% from their initial purchase.
- Levels 4 to 7 you will earn 5% from those new members’ initial purchase.
The number of levels that you can earn from will depend on the rank that you qualify for.
- When you qualify for the Bronze, Bronze Elite and Silver Ranks you will qualify to earn the sponsorship commissions on levels 1, 2, and 3.
- When you qualify for the Silver Elite and Gold Ranks you will qualify to earn the sponsorship commissions on levels 1 through 4.
- When you qualify for the Gold Elite Ranks you will qualify to earn the sponsorship commissions on levels 1 through 5.
- When you qualify for the Platinum Ranks you will qualify to earn the sponsorship commissions on levels 1 through 6.
- When you qualify for the Platinum Elite Ranks you will qualify to earn the sponsorship commissions on levels 1 through 7. (all levels)
The residual commissions that are paid in Aegea utilize the binary compensation plan structure.
The way that a binary compensation plan was explained above at the beginning of this compensation plan section.
To summarize you will have 2 pay legs which are your left leg, and your right leg.
Commissions are calculated in the binary through direct and indirect referrals.
Note: you will need to stay qualified to earn from the binary by having at least 1 active personal referral on your right leg and 1 active personal referral on your left leg at all times.
If 1 of the personal referral fails to order their auto-ship for any month then in order for you to qualify for the residual commissions from the binary you will need to replace them in that same month.
There is no cap for the depth of levels the binary commission’s structure can grow compared to the unilevel 7 level limit.
The commissions are calculated each week and paid out the following week for the earning that you qualified for.
Commissions are calculated by the volume from the lesser or “weaker” binary leg.
The pay leg (weaker or lesser volume) can switch from week to week, it will always be calculated from the volume that has less volume.
The pay leg volume amount is calculated by 20% of the total from the lesser leg.
There are limits of the max amount that you can earn per week and are limited by the rank that you are qualified at.
This is the breakdown of commissions that you can earn per your rank.
- Bronze Rank – You are capped out at earning $1000 in commissions per week.
- Bronze Elite Rank – You are capped out at earning $2000 in commissions per week.
- Silver Rank – You are capped out at earning $4000 in commissions per week.
- Silver Elite Rank – You are capped out at earning $8000 in commissions per week.
- Gold Rank – You are capped out at earning $10,000 in commissions per week.
- Gold Elite Rank – You are capped out at earning $15,000 in commissions per week.
- Platinum Rank – You are capped out at earning $20,000 in commissions per week.
- Platinum Elite Rank – You are capped out at earning $25,000 in commissions per week.
Residual Matching Bonus
Along with the residual commissions that Aegea offers, they also offer a residual matching bonus.
When you qualify for the “Bronze Elite Rank” and higher is when you are qualified to earn from the residual matching bonus commissions.
The residual matching bonus is structured in the unilevel commission’s plan.
Depending on the rank that you qualify for at Bronze Elite rank and higher is what you can earn which is broken down like this:
- Bronze Elite and Silver Ranks – These ranks will earn 20% on their personally referred members only.
- Silver Elite and Gold Ranks – These ranks will earn 20% on their personally referred members and from level 2 members you will earn 10%.
- Gold Elite and Platinum Ranks – These ranks will earn 20% on their personally referred members, 10% on level 2 members, and 5% on level 3 members.
- Platinum Elite Rank – This rank will earn 20% on their personally referred members, 10% on level 2 members, and 5% on levels 3 and 4 members.
Check Match Bonus
Additionally, Aegea also pays out a Check Match Bonus.
The way that it works is a bonus commission of 10% of the residual commissions earned from personal members and team members earning from the binary earning that they make.
Although it is paid through the residual earning, Aegea uses the unilevel structure to define who the qualified member gets paid the check match bonus from.
The 10% of your personal and team member’s residuals earning will be from Silver and higher-ranked team members.
Each unilevel leg will have a limit of 5 Silver rank members or higher that you can earn the 10% check match bonus from.
Rank Achievement Bonus
Just like most other MLM compensation plan structures, Aegea has a 1 time Rank Achievement Bonus that you can earn.
This happens every time you reach a higher rank and starts with Bronze Elite.
Here is the breakdown of the 1-time bonus that you can earn when you reach a certain rank:
- Bronze Elite Rank – When you qualify for this rank you will earn a 1-time bonus commission of $100.
- Silver Elite Rank – When you qualify for this rank you will earn a 1-time bonus commission of $200.
- Gold Elite Rank – When you qualify for this rank you will earn a 1-time bonus commission of $400.
- Platinum Rank – When you qualify for this rank you will earn a 1-time bonus commission of $600.
- Platinum Elite Rank – When you qualify for this rank you will earn a 1-time bonus commission of $1000.
When you reach the leadership status rank of Platinum Elite rank in the Aegea compensation plan you will be awarded more money in the form of a Global Bonus.
The way that this works is that the company will take 2% of the company’s total volume for the month and divide it evenly with all qualifying Platinum Elite rank members to pay out a commission to them.
The last part of this compensation plan is the Lifestyle Bonus that Aegea offers.
The way that it works is when your personally referred members maintain the Silver Elite rank, you will receive additional bonus commissions which they call a Lifestyle Bonus.
To earn this extra bonus you will need and maintain:
- 2 Silver Elites Ranked personally referred members which will earn you a $500 per month Lifestyle Bonus.
- 4 Silver Elites Ranked personally referred members which will earn you a $750 per month Lifestyle Bonus.
- 6 Silver Elites Ranked personally referred members which will earn you a $1000 per month Lifestyle Bonus.
NOTE: Just to summarize the important points to qualify to earn the Lifestyle Bonus is you will need 2 things which are:
- You must maintain the Silver Elite Ranked members. ( when they move up or down in rank you will need to replace them with another Silver Elite)
- They must be your personally referred members (team members don’t count)
The last section of my review will cover information about questions that a person thinking about joining might have.

Is Aegea BBB Accredited?
Currently, Aegea is not accredited or listed on the Better Business Bureau Website.
They don’t have any mention of the company itself either.
Cost to Join Aegea

- Starter Pack – $99
- Freshness Pack – $199
- Executive Pack – $399
- Quantum Builder Pack – $999
Note: They also have a free option but in order to qualify for commissions you will need to purchase a package.
To maintain commissions qualified status you will need to purchase a 40 PV item which equals out to around $60.
Is Aegea a Scam?
Well, there has been a lot of speculation about these types of products in general and whether or not they are scams because of the product.
Although they seem to have a fairly new concept, it seems to be in line with the unbelievable.
We had products like the magnets hit the market hard to then fizzle out later on.
The MLM companies that jumped on that train are not here anymore or re-launched with a new brand and product.
So if you are asking me if Aegea is a scam?
The jury is still out.

My Final Aegea Review and Thoughts
The hype is real with the Aegea opportunity folks.
They are pushing their product hard that it is a revolutionary product that is going to turn everything you come into contact healthy and good for you.
Personally, I would like to see some type of substantial scientific proof or studies that their “quantum resonance technology” has any kind of health benefit or actually does everything that the company website and owners claim it to do.
I have found some articles on the subject that all claimed there were lies to some of these types of processes, but I cannot confirm any of the findings.
If you were to ask me if I would join Aegea, I would have to say I would pass.
I’ve seen these types of companies come and go, and none of them lasted very long.
With that said.
I hope you enjoyed my Aegea review.
