Earn cash incentives for your company

Refer other businesses to American Express for a Corporate Card or OPEN Card program to receive a one-time incentive payment. Each successful referral can earn your company up to $15,000.

How It Works

  1. Identify a Qualified Lead*.

    You may already have clients that qualify. It’s simple—just look for clients that are not currently Corporate or OPEN customers and have not been referred in the past year.

  2. Submit your referral.

    Register your company on the Partner Portal and submit names of the businesses you think could benefit from Corporate or OPEN products.

  3. Get paid!

    Once your client starts using the new product, your company will receive the incentive payment within 90 days. Plus, there’s no limit to the number of leads you can submit, so each client is a potential referral and an earning opportunity.

*A Qualified Lead must meet the following eligibility criteria: (1) must not currently be an American Express Global Commercial Payments customer; (2) must not have been submitted as a referral within the last year through any internal or external American Express lead referral program; (3) must have a business relationship with the referring partner. Notwithstanding the above, American Express has sole discretion regarding acceptance of all referrals, including Qualified Leads.

The American Express® Partners Plus program is open to all companies in the United States with a federal tax ID number, excluding travel agencies, that can refer companies engaging in business to business (B2B) payments to American Express Global Commercial Payments. Authorized officers of eligible companies can enroll in the program as a referring partner at the Partners Plus portal, available at:www.americanexpress.com/partnersplus_portal. Only Qualified Leads referred to a Global Commercial Payments program account via the online Partners Plus portal can lead to a one-time incentive payment from American Express. A one-time incentive payment will be issued only for a Qualified Lead that becomes a Global Commercial Payment customer in the United States (a “New Client”) and spends on a Global Commercial Payment account, within one year after the referral was submitted via the Partners Plus portal. Incentive payments are based on each separate referral and will be paid by check or ACH to the company registered as the referring partner. Incentive payments will be made approximately 90 days after spending occurs on the New Client’s Global Commercial Payments account. The amount of the incentive payment is based upon the estimated annual charge volume of the New Client’s Global Commercial Payments account, to be estimated by American Express in its sole discretion. Notwithstanding the above, American Express has the sole discretion regarding acceptance of all referrals, including Qualified Leads. Additional terms and conditions apply.
