Mindvalley is not worth your money

I was going through the website of Mindvalley and that is when I decided to get the free trial version of the programs. It was a 7 day free trail program. However, they did ask me to enter the details of my credit card which I did. I was very sure that I would take off the subscription before the trial period ends and decided to do that one day before the subscription ended.

In those 7 days, I did not get time to check anything on the website. I was too busy with my work and everything that I realized that even if I pay for the subscription, I would hardly get anytime to use the program. Hence, I tried to cancel the subscription. Their website has no clear path to cancel the subscription. I went through a lot of problems while trying to figure out how to cancel the subscription. Finally, I was able to discontinue the subscription, working for more than half an hour to find that option on their website.

Later, after a week, I received a message that my credit card was charged for $99.99. I was sibscrbed for the entire year. I did not get it. I never made that decision. And, I had successfully cancelled the subscription from getting into auto renew. So, I tried to reach these people, however, no luck. So, I decided to use it for a month, before asking for a refund. I thought that if the programs are really helpful, I may be able to learn something. And, if that is the case, I won’t unsubscribe it anyway.

They have this 30 days refund policy. In the course of time, I tried to check their events and other things happening in the city. But I was not able to make it. I am no good at making space for more things in my life. So, it was almost 20 days that I realize that the money is getting wasted. I am not sure if these guys have anything great on their website as I never got a chance to look at any course or details of the courses.

I sent them an email stating that I needed a refund as I was not able to use the service. I never got an email back. It was almost 7 days of the email and I had not received any reply. So, I sent another email and there was a reply after two days that I needed to send the email on some another email id that was meant for refund queries.

I did as the email asked me to do. However, I again, did not get any reply. For one week, I was waiting for the reply. I had a chance to connect with one of the employees of Mindvalley. It was through their chat support that I was finally able to talk to someone.

This time, this guy named Tim and I am not sure if it was his real name or a made up one. But he told me that there was no email on that email address which was sent by me. I confirmed the email address and it was correct. I had that in my sent mails and I knew that it had reached the support team. But they were not able to find it. It was not my mistake. And, the 30 days period was almost over. So, this guy told me that I would not be able to get my money back.

This was the last time I spoke to someone from the support team. Later, my chats were disconnected or not replied. I started sending them emails and I believe my email was also barred. The guy who spoke with me on the chat also suggested that I must use the other paid courses they had. I mean, this is ridiculous. I am not interested in your services of offerings. I have got better things to take care of in my life. I am not free. I have no time for these courses or anything else that they had to offer.

I told the same thing to these guys and Tim ignored every request. These people are so impossible to deal with. I need no more reasons to call these guys cheaters. Because they are. They have been cheating people. Their free trail is a bait for getting into users accounts. I have been trying hard to get my refund back. I have all the proofs that I mailed them the request. However, these guys are reluctant and saying that they cannot do so.

After 30 days, when I sent them a reminder for refund through an email, they received it very well. They replied saying that the refund timelines had crossed. How could they receive the email now and could not receive it within the timeline? Doesn’t that sound like a trap? It did to me.

I have sent them many reminders telling them that the subscription was not selected by me and they had done it by mistake. I have proof that I have not used their free or paid courses at all. But these guys are so dumb or acting as ones. The website is full of crap. Their entire interface is to make people fall into their shit.

I am not sure if they would still charge for my subscription once the entire year is over, even when I would cancel the subscription. I have hence, requested my bank for another credit card. I cannot give these scammers any other chance to scam me anymore. These people must be put behind bars for scamming others online.

    Scam - problems with billing, refunds, and quality of workshop

    I signed up for a couple of programs and once I realized how ridiculous they were, I cancelled within less than 3 days. I couldn’t get anyone to answer their phone. Email didn’t work. What a nightmare! They made mistake after mistake after mistake. Some of the content of some of these workshops is bullshit. It caused me a lot of grief dealing with a company that says “superior support” and have the worst possible support. If the company would be based in the United States, Vishen could never get away with this. But because he and his company is based in Malaysia, well, anything goes. BUYER BEWARE!!!!

    Save your money, time and avoid frustration. There are plenty of excellent spiritual education sites on the internet that are more trustworthy.

    Mindvalley Jim Kwik Review + Lifebook + Superbrain

    This review is for Mindvalley Jim Kwik super brain and lifebook. All these stuff are really none of use in real life. They are just a motivation speaker rather than the trainer. One should not pay that much on motivation speech. Robinson is best if you are after motivations speech. Jim Kwik’s super brain is fuss and so lifebook

    Sounds like a personal problem...

    You were to busy and chose not make any time to use a great service.

    I have bought and used a class from Mindvalley. It was great.

    I also bought a class and returned nearly two weeks later because I didn’t have time. Got a full Refund.

    If you can’t commit, just take the free masterclasses they offer (which offer great information but of course is just one free class as a part of a paid program)

    Or just go on their social Media and enjoy the community for free.

    Sorry I gave one star to the person writing these reviews. 5 stars to Mind Valley.

    It IS IMPORTANT to have realistic expectations of things and to know what YOU need as a person.

    If you are looking for good information or a positive community to network with, then Mindvalley is great!

      I’m sure you work with MindValley or know the people who do. In any case I believe the victims that wrote these reviews. SCAMMERS SCAMMERS SCAMMERS! SCAMMERS!!!

    I didn't try but I don't like it...

    How can you tell something is not worth it when you didn’t try it???

    I get, and respect, your frustration so make it about their customer services, at least. It felt unfair and really did not help…

    Mindvalley is not a scam

    I’ve been working on several courses through Mindvalley – it’s not a scam, at all. I had a few snags with billing that were sorted immediately. The content is thought-provoking and encourages self-awareness and a greater understanding of a broad range of ‘soft skills’, which (as a professional life coach) I’ve been able to develop and apply.
    It’s not for everyone and requires a willingness to put aside entrenched thinking and choose to think differently and with an open-mind.
    I’d recommend it, but with a caveat that you only get out of it what you’re willing to put in.
    DEFINITELY not a scam.

    Unfair assumption without trying out the course

    That is purely an unfair assumption about the courses when you clearly stated you did not go through the free material. I downloaded 7 of their materials online, some worked for me some just couldnt keep up. But the quality was definitely there in all their workshop. Also you need a lot of time and an open mind to practise these courses. You cannot train your mind in 7 days, neither can you read a book super fast like Jim Kwik says and some of the concepts may sound a bit like pseudo science. You need to constantly upgrade your skills and keep an open mind, it might work for some and not work for others. Only disadvantage, they are costly and some of their material are available and better explained free by motivational experts.

    disgusting lying adverts

    sat through an advert offering free master class this guy vishen lakhiani repeating the same stuff in the advert for an hour at least telling boring naieve stories of success stories over and talking about incidents in his life that none of us give a fk about this naieve man is driving people away and by the time it got to the 4 points at the end i was too angry to even listen to any of it this idiot thinks that quantity is better than quality (cheap mindset) if he had spent ten minutes talking about his stories and got straight into it instead of actually treating us like kids thinking we were INTERESTED in his life story over and over again i may have been interested but now i know that is just lots of quantity (meaningless words before it leads anywhere) i will never spend a penny with them i guess it goes back to the old saying of talking yourself out of a sale after you could have sold it he is the owner so nobody could stop him boring us making himself the video maker lolol i know a clever sales man would have known how to pitch it properly i myself would have been able to sell the program since iv always been a sales queen

    Not a Scam in the least bit.

    I have personally used multiple programs through Mindvalley and can attest that if you set proper expectations and make the proper life changes that come from the opportunity you provide yourself…success will be had.

    It is very challenging in some of these programs and as it should be. If these areas in life were easy no one would need any guidance or much less guidance to educate themselves properly to do them.

    Your fault

    So you didn’t try anything, decided to ‘wait a month’ to get a refund, and then complained when you couldn’t? How entitled are you? This is ridiculous.

    Anyone who says Mindvalley is a scam was likely trying to scam Mindvalley by doing things like getting a free month and then complaining that they couldn’t get their refund.

    All rules about refunds and other things are laid out clear as day. Just be a decent a human being and follow the rules.

      Mindvalley Scam - Paid reviews

      Mindvalley hires reviewers to ‘clean up’ negative reviews. Absolutely clear here – Some one star reviews actually criticising the complaints and defending Mindvalley.

      There are companies that actually do care about the consumers well being. You’ll learn the make it really easy to opt out or refund if you genuinely did not learn anything. And they can because the product they sell you isn’t a ‘digital consumable’. That means you can sell the product infinity times. Not like a T-shirt that reduces inventory.

      Mindvalley is a scam.

      The reviewers here defending Mindvalley are paid.

    Would have been better if you'd been able to take a course or two.

    This review would have been better if you’d been able to try some courses. I’ve taken three of them and never had a problem. Regarding the billing thing: like all companies, probably depends on what customer service person you reach, time of day, etc.

    Regarding the classes, think of it like school: 60% of what you learn won’t be used past the end of the class. The courses have been helpful, and I’ve gotten useful things from them that I continue to use. One class isn’t going to change your life, but trying new things will. The classes get you to think about different things, and to try thinking differently.

    They give stories to relate to, and the free 1.5 hr free masterclasses are FREE. They give a taste of the course, introduce the teacher, their story, and then give you some pieces of info you may find useful. If that doesn’t fit what you’re going for then that class probably isn’t for you.

    Silva method program of Mind valley

    I signed up for the Silva method program of mind valley. It was about 360 dollars. Well… It was copy paste of Silva s method and actually there was some missing parts…. the guy on the audio records LITERALLY REPEATED everything from Silva s mp3 cds.. almost word by word. Once i asked in the community that if there are any expanded research/practice added to the program which is worth 300 + dollar because i got the Silva method cd s for 70 bucks, well they deleted my comment and blocked my account from interacting with the community.
    Another info: Vishen talks about meditation like how to meditate why we do this why we do that, well thats all UTTER nonsense. As a Taoist master, i highly recommend to everyone not to take advises from this guy because it is strongly misleading!

    1. Aris sonti

      Yup it's not worth $300+

      You are definitely right.origunal Silva method Audiobooks from Jose Silva’s daughter Laura Silva are pretty much better than Mindvalley,also courses from Jose silva jr and Ed Brnd jr Silva Ultramind programs are awesome as well ,they might be cheaper than Mindvalley courses comparatively

  13. Matthew Rupp

    Forced sales pitches. Misleading.

    Very misleading. Forced sales pitches. You can’t fast forward, rewind or see how LONG the ‘classes’ are. Very frustrating. That’s because they are forced sales pitches. NOT what I thought I was buying into. The layout is SUPER confusing. courses, interviews, podcasts, mentorships, classes, events, all of them with being present on required days and times.

    All about the $$ Good Luck getting a refund.

    MindValley refuses to honor my auto renewal subscription cancelation and refund my $595 for a course that I haven’t had time to use in almost a year. They deducted the money from my account a day early and I canceled immediately on the renewal date and they are refusing to do the right thing. Shame on you MindValley. I thought you genuinely cared about your long time customers. I was wrong. You are all about the $$.

    Annoyning ads for another bullshit-priest

    Obviously bullshit in the line of Joe Dispenza, Bruce Lipton, Deepak Chopra.
    Absolutely useless rip off. Stay away from it, it will do you more harm than good.

  16. Abdullah

    Don't register for the trial, they'll scam your money!

    If you made the mistake of registering for their trial, then you have to contact your back and cancel your card.

    Even if you canceled your trail, they’ll still charge you for the year, and they won’t answer you till the 30 days refund policy is over. Don’t waste your money. The course itself is one big fat lie!

    Mindvalley is a Money trap

    At the beginning it felt like these are a genuine group of people here to help, and make a change in this world. The sign for me was –
    They offer the money back at the end of the Lifebook course you take.

    Little did I know, that in order to complete the course – you have to complete hours on hours of study that goes on and on [and can be given in minutes instead], without any clear messages about where this is going, and how to follow through at the end.

    On the same time, you are being bombarded with marketing e-mails promising you millions of promises.

    Unless you are really on top of things, you get lost.
    The more you get in there, you realize that you are being led into a sophisticated marketing machine that will not really pay you back, rather – try to convince you to get more “free” products – ignoring the fact that you paid 500$ for the same spiritual and self-development content that you can get for free on other platforms.

    I just asked to have more time to complete the course, due to Corona effects on my family, keeping me from finalizing the course on time.

    Once all the e-mails received back from Pravina, the ‘support’ team, where only screenshots of small letters of conditions I missed, I realized –

    These guys are only in it for the money.

    I would recommend teachers you can find on the free Insight timer app,
    you can feel they are really there to help you, and you can donate without the sophisticated marketing trap system.
