Is The AZ Code a Scam? [Review]

The AZ Code Review

I feel like I’m having deja vu. I could have sworn I’ve already looked at The AZ Code. But no, it’s just that there are sooooo many other products JUST like it that it seems like I’ve already reviewed it. I’m sure this one is going to be completely different. (Rolling my eyes.) We’re going to take a look and find out…is the AZ Code a scam? Or, can you really make up to $3000 in Amazon commissions? (hahahaha)

Want to skip all that and just learn a real way to make money online? (Because the AZ Code probably ain’t it.) Check out my FREE guide, 4 Steps to Affiliate Success.

What is The AZ Code?

Product: The AZ Code
Cost: $37
Owner(s): Andrew Peterson (A fake name, and I’m guessing not this guy.)

There’s not a lot of hype on the sales page, so I guess that’s one positive thing about The AZ Code so far. Will there be any more positive things? Eh, I doubt it, but we’ll see!

I’m being doubtful because it’s likely going to be just like these other products I’ve already reviewed:

There are already so many formulas and codes out there that don’t really work. So, I don’t see how this one can be any different. But I’ll try to have an open mind while I watch the video. Perhaps I’ll be wrong. Perhaps. (I’m not. lol)

Here’s what I learned:

  • Some people in different states made a lot of money recently
  • The only thing they have in common is that they all use one single website to make lots of money with minimal work

  • Very few people outside of big corporations know how to utilize this website for profit
  • All of your worries about debt and bills could soon be a thing of the past

Now we get into the (fake) testimonials. Testimonial Lady says she was set up in less than 30 minutes and started making money from day 1. She made more than $10,000 her very first week.

But we can see that she didn’t really make that because she’s an actress from

There are more testimonials, but since we already know they’re fake, I’ll spare you the details…

What is this life-changing website that our presenter is talking about? Amazon, of course (Get it? AZ? Amazon?) This huge household name is your ticket to success! Take a slice of that billion dollar pie!

Most people who try to make money as an Amazon affiliate end up failing because they don’t have the right method. Now you have The Amazon Code! A tried and tested “secret” system that can help you earn up to $40,000 in Amazon commissions. (lololol)

You can be up and running in just 30 minutes from now. (UGH. Seriously with this?)

Getting started as an Amazon affiliate can be complicated, but with The Amazon Code, everything is done for you.

Andrew Peterson is the product owner. (Except that’s a fake name.) I’ll give you the short version of his ridiculous story:

Andrew’s from a small town in Wisconsin. He had a bunch of siblings and had to wear their clothes. He didn’t get much for Christmas. He worked at a factory and married his high school girlfriend. Life was good! Buuuut, he was laid off. He turned to the internet to look for work.

He came across a post on a “secret” forum who claimed to have made $31,000 in just three weeks as an Amazon affiliate. Aha! That’s the ticket!

The video drones and on, but we really don’t need to discuss any more of it. We have enough information.

How Does The AZ Code Work?

This one is interesting. The sales page talks about being an Amazon affiliate. But I did a little more research and it seems that the actual product (an 80-page PDF) is about Amazon FBA.

FBA = Fulfillment by Amazon. Basically, you buy products, likely from China, and send them to Amazon’s fulfillment center. You market and sell the products and Amazon “picks, packs and ships them”, according to their site.

Here’s a video that can help explain it better:

When you’re an affiliate marketer with Amazon, it’s a completely different process. I am an affiliate with Amazon and I don’t worry about fulfilling products at all.

Instead, I promote certain products via Amazon, and if someone purchases through my link, I get a commission. (For example, my self-development book page has Amazon affiliate products.) I don’t have to worry about where the products are coming from. If they’re on Amazon, I can make an affiliate commission from it.

So the sales page is talking about one thing, and the product is about something completely different. That’s kind of messed up! I suppose they think they average person looking to make money online won’t notice?

Is The AZ Code a Scam or Legit?

I didn’t buy the product and try it for myself, so I’m hesitant to call it a scam. But I’m right on that line, let me tell you! lol Even if it’s not an outright scam, there are plenty of issues with this product.

  • Fake product owner. Why hide yourself if your product is so good?
  • Fake testimonials. Why not use REAL testimonials if your product actually works?
  • Saying this is a “secret” system.
  • Saying that no one uses Amazon to make money as affiliates. (There are over 100,000 sites that use Amazon Associates, which is their affiliate platform, as mentioned in this post.)
  • Saying that you can get up and running in 30 minutes and start making money almost immediately.
  • Saying the product is for Amazon affiliate training, when the product itself is for Amazon FBA training. (2 completely different things.)

What’s worse is that I went into the back office for affiliates to see how they suggest promoting this product. They just give you a bunch of emails that you can copy.

For instance, let’s say I decided to promote The AZ Code. (Oh hell no, I would never do that to you, but let’s just suppose…) I could use their emails to send out to my email list to try to get them to purchase this product. Here’s an example of an email that they suggest affiliates use.

The AZ Code Email

It’s one of those spammy, junk emails that everyone hates getting. They have even more emails you can use in the back office, but one is more terrible than the next.

The fact is, The AZ Code is designed to:

  1. Get your email address so that they can send you more offers for things. They know that this product won’t work and you will be looking for something new to help you make money.
  2. To take your money. They’re offering you very little for your money. And once you buy the product, they will hit you with more things you “need” to buy to get ahead faster. (They won’t help you get ahead faster. They just want more of your money.)

An Alternative Solution

The biggest problem I have with these types of products is that they tell you that you can make money really fast. If that were true, everyone on the planet would be doing it! lol

Making money online is no different from making money in an office. You still have to work. The benefit of working online is that you get to make your own hours and you get to work on stuff you like!

You’re not going to learn everything you need to know from an 80-page e-book. You need step by step guidance and the ability to learn as you build out your site.

That’s why I recommend Wealthy Affiliate. They have the best training and resources to help you learn how to make money online in a real way. Not in a scammy way.

You just have to start a Free Account (no credit card required) and you can start learning right away!

  1. Unfortunately, sites like these will keep coming because people will keep falling for the hype. You have to review the information available and make an informed choice. This is where articles like this are so useful, because there is no bias, you are just telling it like it is, so please keep up the good work.

    • Thank you David, I’m trying. I’m trying! 

  2. Oh dear here we go on the self fulfilling cycle again. Thank goodness for people like yourself for breaking these cowboys down and putting the evidence out there. I have been bitten (just the once) but for these sites to work there must be people out there who have been chewed to bits and yet, the evidence is that they still keep coming back for more.

    For every Dollar in the world, there is someone trying to get a hold of it. For every person who is trying to get a hold of that dollar, and is prepared to work for it, there are 3 who want the Dollar but don’t want to raise a hand to get it. For every person who wants the Dollar but doesn’t want to work for it, there are 6 who will try to convince them that they can for a fee.

    • Yes, I like how you put your last paragraph. Especially the last sentence. I think it’s just human nature to want all the good things without any of the work. We’re kind of biologically wired to try to conserve energy. 

      However, we just can’t sit around and do nothing and expect everything good to come to us. We have to take action on our desires.

      That’s why these programs annoy me so much. Convincing people they can get a lot of money for no work and then it’s harder for people like me to convince someone that if you just put in the work, it’ll be worth it!
