This company's type of business is classified as a work-at-home company. Britt Phillips is the President & CEO and the designated customer relations contact for the company. Coastal Vacations International states in its literature that it offers discount travel packages. However, the Bureau has evidence that this company engages in promoting this discount travel package by way of multi- level marketing. According to information in Bureau files, consumers can begin the program by sending an advanced registration fee to the company. The fees vary depending upon the "program" that the consumer decides to participate in. The "Buy In" plan requires a $10,000 initial start up cost and according to the company, "pays a minimum of $9,695.00 to the participant per sale. The "Premiere Level" requires an advanced registration fee of $3,995.00 and "pays a minimum of $3,190.00 to the participant per sale". Level One requires an up-front fee of $1,295.00 plus a $10.00 fee for UPS shipping and "pays a minimum of $1000.00 to the participant per sale". Once the consumer begins the program, the primary focus becomes recruiting others to sell the 3 programs . This firm advertises that consumers can earn $3000.00 - $5000.00 weekly working through this work-at-home opportunity. The Bureau urges caution when considering sending money to companies that offer plans focusing more on the recruiting of other participants than on the selling of the product or service.
