Corporate Defined Expense Program (CDEP)

To learn more about enrollment in CDEP, please contact your Program Administrator or American Express Account Manager. The decision to grant access to CDEP is at the sole discretion of American Express. The CDEP Card will become inactive after the earlier of: (a) the expiration date printed on the CDEP Card; or (b) the end of the day in which the spending limit reaches $0. The company will be liable for: (a) charges that are made prior to the expiration date, but which are submitted by the merchant after the expiration date; (b) charges that are processed by a merchant after the Card has become inactive; and (c) any other charges incurred in excess of or outside the parameters of the limits set on the account.

Corporate Express Cash (Requires Company and Employee Enrollment)

The Corporate Express Cash program (the “Program”) allows employees to use their Corporate Card to withdraw up to a set amount of cash from participating ATM locations worldwide (visit to find the nearest ATM). The company and employee must be enrolled to use this feature. Cash withdrawal(s) will appear on the monthly statement. For each ATM withdrawal made under the Program, we will charge a fee of up to 5% of the amount of cash withdrawn based upon the billing and funding options selected by the Company upon enrollment, and subject to applicable laws. For ATMs outside the United States, the applicable fee will be calculated after the dispensed cash amount is converted to U.S. Dollars. The ATM owner may charge additional fees for each transaction. Foreign Transaction and additional ATM fees may apply.
