If you follow anyone who is with Monat, you may have heard them talk about the “free Cadillac.” I’m here (and so is the FTC) to tell you that the car is by no means free! But, it’s possible to have Monat pay for some, or all, of the payment for your white Cadillac. I know because they do it for me. I’m a fly-by-the-seat of my pants, working pharmacist, mom, and fire wife, just trying to survive. I’m not a beauty blogger and don’t even wash my hair that often. But, I’m in the club, the Monat Motor Club, that is. And, in the blog, I’m going to give you all the details on the program so you can decide if running for that “free cadi” is for you. Spoiler alert, I would have never in a million years forecasted that I’d be writing this blog. But it’s been a wild ride since I became a Monat Market Partner almost four years ago. So, buckle up, and let’s get chatty about the Cadi.

FTC Income Disclaimer

Before we begin, to keep it all legal, I’ll share this with you. “These results are not typical. MONAT makes no guarantee that you will achieve similar results. Your results will depend on your hard work and effort—the average annual income for ALL U.S. Market Partners at all Ranks (which includes Active and Inactive Market Partners) in 2019 was $809. Thirty-six percent of U.S. Market Partners were not Active in 2019 and therefore did not earn any commissions.” As a gist, if you want results, you have to work. There are no guarantees in life or Monat.

Why Monat Chose Cadillac

I didn’t fully grasp the significance until I drove my 2020 White Cadillac XT4 home from Houston. But, driving a Cadillac is an experience. It’s a luxury like many of us have never had. It’s hard to put into words, but you feel like a winner driving that thing. Granted, you don’t need an excellent car to be successful or feel good. But it sure doesn’t hurt either.  

If we are friends in real life, you may know that I lost my dad suddenly when I was 27. My dad lived life to the fullest. Despite being a regular, middle-class guy, he had this luxury concept he always referred to as “first cabin.” If you head over to my Instagram, I have a story highlight about this and how driving this Cadillac makes me feel like I’m fulfilling my dad’s legacy. Could you go check it out when you have a minute?  

Monat Cadillac

Here are the reasons Monat chose to partner with Cadillac.  

  • A brand of high ideals and hopes.
  • Prestige and versatility
  • A standard of excellence that mirrors MONAT.
  • Innovation that moves us forward.
  • Cadillac represents everything we’re passionate about in the world and inspires us as we shape our future.

Monat Motor Club Requirements

Okay, I imagine you came for this info specifically. Here’s what you need to do to join the Monat Motor Club. You can also find all this info in the Monat Motor Club Terms and Conditions.  

Initial Qualification Period

To qualify for the MONAT Motor Club program, you must maintain a “Paid-as” status of Market Mentor (MM) or higher for three consecutive months. Market Mentor is by no means the top of the compensation plan, it’s right in the middle. Simply put, Market Mentors have recruited four market partners, and 2 of those market partners are building teams. Typically, Cadillac owners have larger teams, but that’s the minimum requirement in terms of “structure.”  Also, a Market Mentor needs 500 PV, 7000 GV, and 30,000 DV. Feel free to reach out if you have questions on what those numbers mean or regarding the compensation plan pictured below.

Steps to Join the Monat Motor Club After the Initial Qualification Period

Once you’ve completed the initial qualifying period, you will receive an official email from MONAT on the 15th of the following month, inviting you to participate in the MONAT Motor Club Program along with the Terms and Conditions.  

At this point, you can go car shopping. Monat will provide you with directions for submitting proof of purchase which you will email to the Motor Club. Once you do that and receive a confirmation that you’ve done it correctly, you are in! Welcome to the Monat Motor Club! As I type this, there are over 1200 Monat Cadillacs on the road. Every time I pull up next to a white Cadillac, I want to roll down my window and as if he or she is with Monat.

Monat Motor Club Details

You can purchase or lease ANY white Cadillac as long as it’s no more than five years old at the time of the purchase. Market Partners participating must be listed in the contract as a signer or co-signer. It’s your car and your financial responsibility, but Monat gives you a bonus to cover or partially cover the payment each month.  

Again, your vehicle and be new or pre-owned, purchased, or leased. You can buy the vehicle cash and receive the Motor Club bonuses. But, you can’t use an existing leased or purchased car or SUV. You must acquire it within two months of qualification. Lastly, you can’t opt for a cash option. If you chose not to get a Monat Cadillac, that is perfectly okay. But, you won’t receive your car bonus each month, even if paid-as MM or higher.  

Monat Motor Club Benefits

MONAT will send you a $1,500 down payment bonus after completing the enrollment. You’ll get this bonus in your Friday check the following week. Monthly, and starting from the month of enrollment, you’ll receive a car program bonus based on your “Paid-As” rank for up to 48 months. This bonus ranges from $500-1000 per month based on your paid-as rank in the company.  After 48 months, you’ll be able to re-enroll in the program and receive another down payment towards your next Monat Cadillac.

How Long it Took for Me To Earn My Monat Cadillac

Here are the facts, ma’am. While I know women who have earned their Monat Cadillac in a matter of months, that is not my story. I joined this company for the products and not the business. But, when you love something, you tell people about it. Enthusiasm creates a following, and the consistency makes results.  

It took me 29 months, or almost three years, to reach the company’s rank, where I could earn the Cadillac. Then it took me another year to build my team strong enough to maintain that for three months to achieve the car. I did it organically, without pulling strings, placing orders under people, or cheating the system. I used the products every day, shared them in person and on social media, and suggested the business to people I thought would be a great fit.  

Not a Direct Sales “Hun”

Yes, I reached out to people. But I never sent a “hey girl” message, copied and pasted, or used a script. Don’t do that; please don’t. I was authentic to myself, shared honestly, and never cared if someone told me no. We are selling shampoo here, not curing cancer. And by all means, if you love another product line, that is great. Please keep using it.  

When people chose the business or upgraded from customer to Market Partner, I shared our team tools for business success. Some people did nothing, some worked hard, and some did nothing and then decided to work hard when they were ready. Eventually, I found the two people who wished to succeed as much as I did and a handful of other rad supporting players who were doing their thing too. My job is not to force you to build a business; it’s to give you the tools (or connect you to a better leader than myself) and let you find your way.

My Monat Cadillac 

You do not have to join the Motor Club, ever. But, when I met the requirements, I drove a 6-year-old Ford Explorer with 90k miles and was still paying $500 a month on it. So, for me, it was a no-brainer to get into a new car with an equal payment, knowing I could earn back the amount every month through my business.  

I decide to go with a white 2020 Cadillac XT4 and buy it pre-owned. I did this for affordability and to keep my car payment similar to what I was already paying. We are practical and didn’t want to get something beyond our means or rely on the car bonus just in case. With that said, when I hit higher ranks in the company and secure my $750-1000 per month bonus, you better believe I’m getting that Escalade!  

We chose Carmax rather than going to the local Cadillac dealership. Carmax was the best option because I was upside down in my current car loan and wanted to get the highest trade-in value for that vehicle. Also, I wanted a slightly pre-owned vehicle (I bought an early 2020 vehicle in late 2020) for cost savings, and Carmax had a large selection of white 2020 XT4s at the time. I wanted to get my car fast, the month I qualified, and I could get it that day at Carmax.
