Terms & Conditions


1When you request on behalf of your company that we apply a spending limit as described below on a Corporate Card Member on your company’s corporate card program, you agree to these terms. These terms supplement, and are incorporated by reference into, the terms of your Corporate Services Commercial Account Agreement. At your request, we may agree to apply a limit to the total dollar amount of purchases that are charged to the Corporate Card Members on your company’s program. If your company is enrolled in Corporate Express Cash, at your request, we may agree to apply a limit to the total dollar amount of withdrawals at ATMs, during each billing period or week – depending on what type of limits you set, that are made from one or more specified Corporate Card Members on your company’s program. If we agree to apply a limit, it is not a guarantee that the Card Member will be able to make purchases or ATM withdrawal up to the applicable limit. In applying any limit we may take in to account any credits (such as for returned merchandise or for payments), even if a credit relates to a purchase made by the Card Member. Spending Limits typically refresh within 24-48 hours after the request is processed. Any request that we change a limit may not be effective until a subsequent billing period. Any Charges (as defined below) made by the Card Member prior to the date during a billing period that we apply the limit will not be subject to the limit for that billing period. Because of systems or administrative considerations, arrangements with merchants, or for other business reasons, we may, but are not required to, treat some purchases and/or ATM withdrawals (collectively, Charges) as not being subject to any such limits. You agree to pay all Charges without regard to whether any Charges exceed a limit, and you agree that we are not liable to you or any other person when a limit is not applied to any Charges and/or when Charges are incurred and billed that exceed a limit. While we typically require merchants to obtain an authorization for purchases and submit final transaction documentation for payment in a timely manner, a limit may not apply or may be exceeded when a merchant does not obtain an authorization for any reason; when a merchant obtains an authorization for a partial amount of the final charge submitted to us for payment; or when such submissions are not submitted or processed at the same time that the authorization is obtained. Examples may include, but are not limited to: Charges made outside of the U.S., in duty-free stores, or on board airplanes or cruise vessels; international airline ticket purchases; vehicle rentals; lodging stays extended beyond original reservation period; certain mail order purchases; purchases billed on a recurring basis; purchases at gas stations; telecommunications charges, including charges incurred with calling cards; taxicab charges; security deposits; late, damage or other fees in connection with rentals; purchases billed in installments; restaurant tips and other gratuities; and Charges that occur before the end of billing period, if the Charge is posted to your Account after the Closing Date of that billing period. Any limit will not be applied to Charges for foreign currency or for travelers checks or gift checks obtained at a location other than an American Express Travel Service location or by telephone from us.
