Nexus Rewards: NXR Global rebooted with puppet executives
Nexus Rewards is a continuation of NXR Global.
You can verify this by attempting to visit NXR Global’s old website at “nxrglobal.com”. At time of publication the domain redirects to Nexus Rewards.
Nexus Rewards and NXR Global are tied to David and Bob Bremner (right), who together with other family members have been behind a number of MLM companies over the past few years.
BehindMLM started tracking the Bremner’s MLM escapades with vStreamTV in 2015. vStreamTV was eventually rebooted as IXQ TV.
Both vStreamTV and IXQ TV sold pirated streaming content, leading to the MPA shutting down IXQ TV in late 2019.
That led us to Lifestyle Connections’ launch on or around early 2020. Lifestyle Connections was a short-lived savings subscription opportunity.
Another Bremner family company launch was Pyur Global in 2016. Pyur Global marketed a range of nutritional supplements and an “iHeart Device”.
Of note was the Bremners capitalizing on victims of the Noble 8 Revolution Ponzi, most of whom were elderly, by overseeing efforts to funnel them into Pyur Global.
In April 2019 Pyur Global was rebooted as Pyur Life. Pyur Life’s website is still up but SimilarWeb tracks negligible traffic.
BehindMLM first came across NXR Global in Lifestyle Connections marketing material. Lifestyle Connections represented it was “powered by NXR Global”.
NXR Global was somewhat of a parent company for the Bremner’s various MLM launched over the years.
NXR Global’s website DNS was last updated on November 2nd, 2021. Nexus Rewards’ operates from the domain “mynexusrewards.com”, privately registered on January 4th, 2022.
The Bremners operate their various MLM ventures through Nutronix Revolution, incorporated in Mechanicsville, Virginia.
Rather than just admit ownership of Nexus Rewards, the Bremners are representing Art and Rob Phelps are co-founders of the company.
The Phelps have been involved with the Bremners’ MLM opportunities dating back to the original Nutronix International (~2008, possibly late 2007).
Read on for a full review of Nexus Rewards’ MLM opportunity.

Nexus Rewards pays recruitment commissions via a unilevel compensation structure.
A unilevel compensation structure places an affiliate at the top of a unilevel team, with every personally recruited affiliate placed directly under them (level 1):
If any level 1 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 2 of the original affiliate’s unilevel team.
If any level 2 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 3 and so on and so forth down a theoretical infinite number of levels.
Nexus Rewards caps payable unilevel team levels at six.
Recruitment commissions are paid as a percentage of monthly fees paid by affiliates recruited into the unilevel team as follows:
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – $10
- level 2 (must recruit and maintain two affiliates to unlock) – $1
- level 3 (must recruit and maintain three affiliates to unlock) – 50 cents
- level 4 (must recruit and maintain four affiliates to unlock) – 50 cents
- level 5 (must recruit and maintain five affiliates to unlock) – 50 cents
- level 6 (must recruit and maintain six affiliates to unlock) – 50 cents
Nexus Rewards affiliates affiliates receive a $5 Coded Bonus on the second and fourth recruits by affiliates they’ve personally recruited.
In turn the second level second and fourth recruit $5 Coded Bonuses are also passed up, and so on and forth.
Coded Bonuses are paid out as long as “coded” downline affiliates continue to pay $21.95 a month.
Infinity Pay adds a bonus from level 3 of the unilevel team. Infinity Pay also expands recruitment commissions beyond the first six levels.
- Pro 25 ranked affiliates earn an extra 25 cents on level 3 down to the next Pro 25 or higher in each unilevel team leg
- Pro 50 ranked affiliates earn an extra 25 cents on level 3 and an extra 50 or higher cents on level 4, down to the next Pro 25 in each unilevel team leg
- 1 Star ranked affiliates earn an extra 25 cents on levels 3, 4 and 5, down to the next 1 Star or higher in each unilevel team leg
- 2 Star ranked affiliates earn an extra 25 cents on levels 3, 4, 5 and 6, down to the next 2 Star or higher in each unilevel team leg
- 3 Star ranked affiliates earn an extra 25 cents on levels 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, down to the next 3 Star or higher in each unilevel team leg
- Diamond ranked affiliates earn an extra 25 cents on levels 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8, down to the next Diamond or higher in each unilevel team leg
- DD Diamond ranked affiliates earn an extra 25 cents on levels 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9, down to the next DD Diamond or higher in each unilevel team leg
- DDD Diamond and Ambassador ranked affiliates earn an extra 25 cents on levels 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9, and 15 cents on level 10, down to the next DDD Diamond or Ambassador in each unilevel team leg
Note that Infinity Pay stacks. That is a 3 Star can earn
- 75 cents on level 3
- $1 on level 4
- $1.25 on level 5
- $1.50 on level 6
- $1 on level 7 and deeper
A Diamond earns the same Infinity Bonus but with level 7 raised to $1.25 and level 8 and deeper paying out $1.50.
6 Month Matrix Recruitment Commissions
Nexus Rewards’ matrix recruitment commissions kick in after an affiliate has paid $21.95 a month for six months.
Nexus Rewards pays matrix recruitment commissions via a 3×10 matrix.
A 3×10 matrix places a Nexus Rewards affiliate at the top of a matrix, with three positions directly under them:
These three positions form the first level of the matrix. The second level of the matrix is generated by splitting these first three positions into another three positions each (9 positions).
Levels three to ten of the matrix are generated in the same manner, with each new level housing three times as many positions as the previous level.
Positions in the matrix are filled via direct and indirect recruitment of Nexus Rewards affiliates.
10 cents a month is paid per position in the matrix filled. If an Nexus Rewards affiliate is paying $21.95 a month in cryptocurrency, they receive 25 cents per position filled on level 10.
Finally, there’s a 100% match on matrix recruitment commissions earned by personally recruited affiliates.
Pyur Life Commissions
Nexus Rewards affiliates earn a 20% commission if personally recruited affiliates purchase Pyur Life products.
Global Bonus Pool
Nexus Rewards takes an undisclosed percentage of $21.95 a month affiliate fees. This percentage is used to fund the Global Bonus Pool.
Ambassador ranked Nexus Rewards affiliates receive an equal share of the Global Bonus Pool each month.
Joining Nexus Rewards
Nexus Rewards affiliate membership is $10 and then $21.95 a month.
Nexus Rewards Conclusions
Nexus Rewards is a reboot of NXR Global, with a beefed up compensation plan. The problem is Nexus Rewards is a pyramid scheme.
Nexus Rewards has deployed the “affiliates who don’t recruit are retail customers” model. When put the regulatory test, we saw this model fail against the FTC with both HerbaLife and Vemma.
Put simply, if an MLM company isn’t marketing or selling products to retail customers, they’re running a pyramid scheme.
100% of commissions paid out by Nexus Rewards are tied to recruitment of affiliates paying $21.95 a month. It is these fees that fund the compensation plan.
Nexus Rewards’ MLM opportunity thus has nothing to do with its “savings and cashback apps”.
Taking a step back, if we consider the savings side of Nexus Rewards has failed across two previous MLM companies before it, obviously there’s no value in the savings themselves.
This likely comes down to anyone being able to get discounts for free these days, immediately putting a platform chargings hundreds of dollars for non-exclusive access at a disadvantage.
Instead of addressing that, the Bremners have adjusted access fees and the compensation plan.
Not surprising, as that’s ultimately what’s being marketed here.
In addition to Nexus Rewards’ business model failing the regulatory compliance test, math guarantees the majority of participants in pyramid schemes lose money.
Oz, I think you mean, “Put simply, if an MLM company is (NOT) marketing or selling products to retail customers, they’re running a pyramid scheme.”
I did, thanks for catching that!
Gaining Access to lower prices and savings is a product. Is it not.. Amazon Prime offers Access? Rakuten offers cashback for referrals. Us Rakuten a pyramid scheme?
Who gives a Flying Fingernail who the the real owner of a biz is if the business offers a real benefit to the consumer?
Referral Marketing is a Real thing online. (Ozedit: derails removed)
I read your blog all the time. Use your information. I think you mislaid your thinking cap on this one. Your bias is showing.
Nexus Rewards offers the consumer a lists of apps that allows them to get cash back on almost everything they buy.
When I save $20.00 a week sometimesmore on things I already buy that is a benefit.
This program helps families survive. My grandson drives for Uber, the costs of gas was killing his net pay. He shas already saved over $200 from Upside and his uber buddies are lowing their costs of gas also.
The cost to join Nexus is $31.95 ($10.00 set up fee) then $21.95/month. Who ever heard of this low entry point for an opportunity to earn $1,000’s to help people save money???
Nexus capitalizes on rising gas prices??? Really? by providing an app that allows consumers to get cashback at the pump? then when they refer/recruit others they save more money?
The app is Upside? had never heard about it before I joined Nexus.
You doubt that families save $5,000 a year? .. Why not check that out before you blatantly make a statement. If you save anything during this inflation, you are ahead of the game, You can save 5,000 a year,,, Did you see the Bill Reduction program.
(Ozedit: derail removed)
But if someone can earn a recurring income helping others save money and do it for under $30/month by referring or recruiting I think we found a winner.
Knowing who runs an MLM opportunity is a core tenant of MLM due-diligence. Bremner’s MLM history is pretty damning, which is why you’re upset.
So you’re crap at MLM due-diligence, duly noted.
Cool. Nexus Rewards is an MLM opportunity. If you want to discuss “referral marketing” do it somewhere else.
I did. That’s why I raised the doubt. Feel free to provide and verifiable examples.
There should be plenty, seeing as Nexus Rewards touted $4900 as an average.
What you’ve found is a pyramid scheme, which is illegal in the US.
Classic Everybody loves BehindMLM, until we review your company.
I don’t change research methodology from company to company. Every review is approached and researched in the same manner.
Oooh this is gonna be a fun one,let’s dig in to the Karenator’s witless response
It’s not a physical product
Amazon prime sells video streaming services,food delivery services. That they offer access to other content is just dandy.
Depends,does Rakuten present itself as a moneymaking opportunity that majority of the income is from recruitment rather than sales?
Faceless “owners” can vanish easily without being held responsible
Calling pyramid schemes referral marketing is disengenuous
Literally this is your bias showing. This review has no unfounded claims or preconceived notions other than comparing it to their previous similar endeavors
Salespitch does not equate to actual value of use when much of that is available free,cheaper or unattached to a pyramid scheme
Does the benefit exceed the cost for everyone? Doesn’t look like it
There we have it,irrelevant “we’re getting paid so it’s great fluffery”
If you make claims like that you need to give the % of people making $1000 please. Paid participation in a lottery also gives you chance at millions. Lotteries are not stable income either
Yeah nah,calling bullshit here. Hoopjumping is a lot of effort,you’ll have to cite the % of members saving 5k a year before your claim is of any value
Pyramid schemes lose the majority of people money.
Exactly what’s going on in Nexus Rewards. Except that you don’t need to invite two participants, but more than that.
Exactly. Except you didn’t do it correctly.
$10 for joining and $21.95 for each month you’re in the scheme.
Except it’s not from what you’re spending, it’s from fees paid by your downline. Calling pyramid returns cash back doesn’t make them less fraudulent.
Great. Has nothing to do with Nexus Rewards being a pyramid scheme.
There are different pyramid scheme models.
With respect to MLM, one is not having retail customers. This is Nexus Rewards’ fraudulent business model.
