1. The American Express® Association Advantage program is open to all associations 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 Corporate Payments. Authorized officers of eligible associations can register in the program as a referring partner at the Association Advantage portal, available at: www.americanexpress.com/associationadvantage_portal. Only Qualified Leads referred to a Global Corporate Payments program account via the online Association Advantage portal can lead to a one-time incentive payment from American Express. An incentive payment will be issued if the Qualified Lead establishes and spends on a Global Corporate Payment program account in the United States, within one year after the referral was submitted via the Association Advantage portal. Incentive payments are based on each separate referral. Based on the referring association’s choice, the incentive payment will be paid by check to the referred member or split between the association registered in the program, and the referred member. Incentive payments will be made approximately 90 days after spending occurs on the referred member’s new Global Corporate Payments program account. The amount of the incentive payment is based upon the estimated annual charge volume of the new Global Corporate Payments program account, to be estimated by American Express in its sole discretion.
