This is a big year – and the start of a big new decade – and we want to reward you for taking the next big step in your Shaklee business. When you advance in rank and hold for three more consecutive months, you can earn an additional cash bonus over and above your regular earnings – up to $20,000!
NEW: Cash in on Summer Addition
Promote to Director between July and December and maintain for a total of four consecutive months to earn an additional $500 in the $20K in 2020 incentive.
How It Works:
Promote to the new Paid-As Rank of Senior Director or above (with a 50% Outside Largest Leg [QOV*] rule applied at the rank of Senior Coordinator and higher) during 2020 and earn progressive cash awards up to a total of $20,000.
Not yet a Director as of July 1, 2020? Promote to the Paid-As Rank of Director by December 31, 2020 to start qualifying for a $20K in 2020 Bonus.
For each new rank, you must achieve the new Paid-As Rank and maintain that Paid-As Rank for three (3) additional consecutive months (i.e., a total of 4 consecutive months) without the use of Volume Grace Months or Waivers.
A new rank for this $20K in 2020 incentive must meet one of the following criteria:
- A first-time, never-before-achieved rank, or
- A Paid-As Rank that was held only prior to the January 2018 PV month
- In order to qualify for the Cash in on Summer Director $20K in 2020 addition, you must not have held the Paid-As Rank of Director or above between January 2018 and June 2020
New Cash in on Summer Director Example 1: The highest Paid-As Rank Christina held was Director in the July 2017 PV month. Christina’s base rank for this incentive is Distributor. Prior to July 2020, she would have needed to promote to at least the Paid-As Rank of Senior Director by December 31, 2020 to begin qualification for any award in the $20K in 2020 Rank Bonuses. With the Cash in on Summer incentive, Christina is eligible for a $500 Rank Bonus in the $20K in 2020 incentive if she achieves the Paid-As Rank of Director by December 31, 2020 and holds it for a total of four consecutive months.
Example 2: The highest Paid-As Rank Annie held was Coordinator in the July 2019 PV Month. Her base rank for this incentive is Coordinator. She must promote to at least the Paid-As Rank of Senior Coordinator (with at least 5000 QOV) by December 31, 2020 and hold it for a total of four consecutive months to earn any award in $20K in 2020 rank bonuses.
Example 3: Alan promoted to his highest Paid-As Rank – Senior Director – in September 2017 and held that rank in the October, November, and December 2017 PV months. He fell to the rank of Director in January 2018. Since Alan has not been at the Paid-As Rank of Senior Director between January 2018 and December 2019, his base rank for this incentive is Director. He must promote to at least the Paid-As Rank of Senior Director or above by December 31, 2020 and hold it for a total of four consecutive months to earn any award in $20K in 2020 rank bonuses.
*QOV (Qualified Organizational Volume) consists of all your Organizational Volume (OV) minus the entire OV of your largest leg in a given month. Your largest leg can change from one month to the next depending on each leg’s OV at the business close of the month.
|New First-Time Rank||Maintenance Required||Award Earned|
|Director (starting July 2020)*||Achieve + three months||$500|
|Senior Director||Achieve + 3 months||$1,000|
|Coordinator||Achieve + 3 months||$3,000|
|Senior Coordinator†||Achieve + 3 months||$6,000|
|Executive Coordinator†||Achieve + 3 months||$10,000|
|Senior Executive Coordinator†||Achieve + 3 months||$12,000|
|Key Coordinator†||Achieve + 3 months||$20,000|
|Senior Key Coordinator†||Achieve + 3 months||$20,000|
|Master Coordinator†||Achieve + 3 months||$20,000|
|Senior Master Coordinator†‡||Achieve + 3 months||$20,000|
|Presidential Master Coordinator†‡||Achieve + 3 months||$20,000|
*Promote to the new Paid-As Rank of Director between July 1 and December 31, 2020 to begin qualification for the $500 Director Bonus.
†Payment of bonuses at this rank requires that a minimum 50% of QOV also be achieved and maintained.
‡These ranks have not yet been achieved in Canada.
1. Although a person may advance by more than one rank in a given month, only one award may be earned at a time. The full maintenance is required for each rank (4 consecutive months) prior to payment of the award and before maintenance for the next rank award (achieve + 3 months) may begin.
For example, if Jim’s base rank for the incentive period is Director, and he promotes to the Paid-As Rank of Coordinator in January 2020, he’ll be required to complete the maintenance period for the Senior Director rank (January + 3 months’ maintenance in the February, March, and April PV months) before he can start qualifications for the rank of Coordinator in the May, June, July, and August PV months.
2. Any new rank qualifications met by December 2020 will be permitted to continue maintenance to earn awards up to and including the rank held in December 2020, or until the maximum of $20,000 in awards is paid, whichever comes first. You must maintain the Paid-As Rank that you were in December 2020 for the remainder of the maintenance period in order to achieve all your eligible awards.
For example, Brad promotes to the new Paid-As Rank of Senior Coordinator in the October 2020 PV month. He holds that rank in the November PV month and promotes to the Paid-As Rank of Executive Coordinator in the December PV month. He’ll be required to complete the maintenance period for the Paid-As Senior Coordinator Rank through the January 2021 PV month to earn the $6,000 Senior Coordinator award. In order to start the qualification for the Paid-As Rank of Executive Coordinator, he’ll need to hold that rank in January, February, March, April, and May to qualify for the Executive Coordinator award of $10,000. If at any point after December 2020 Brad drops below Executive Coordinator, he won’t qualify for this award.
3. A maximum total cumulative award of $20,000 will be paid to any qualifier who achieves multiple new ranks and completes full maintenance for those awards, with a partial award paid on the highest fully qualified rank in order to complete the $20,000 total cumulative award, if applicable.
For example, if Kelly qualifies for a bonus at each of the ranks of Senior Coordinator ($6,000), Executive Coordinator ($10,000), and Senior Executive Coordinator ($10,000) during the incentive period, she’ll earn the maximum award of $20,000 – that is, $6,000 for Senior Coordinator + $10,000 for Executive Coordinator + $4,000 for Senior Executive Coordinator.
4. No more than two persons advancing to the same Paid-As Rank or higher within a given leg may earn any award at the same time, on the same underlying downline volume. The two persons who are lower in the downline genealogy, who are advancing to the same Paid-As Rank or higher, will be eligible for the award.
For example, if Jim promotes to the rank of Coordinator in May 2020, his First Generation Business Leader Kevin promotes to the rank of Senior Director in May 2020, and Kevin’s First Generation Business Leader Joe promotes to Senior Director in May 2020, Kevin and Joe will need to complete their maintenance periods through August 2020. Jim may not earn this award based on Kevin and Joe’s activity.
Starting in July, the Cash in on Summer incentive includes a $20K in 2020 reward at the Paid-As Rank of Director. The Director rank will not affect any other $20K in 2020 qualification pertaining to stacking. No more than two persons advancing to the same Paid-As Rank of Director within a given leg may earn the Director award at the same time, on the same underlying downline volume. The two persons who are lower in the downline genealogy, who are advancing to the same Paid-As Rank or higher, will be eligible for the award.
5. All earned awards will be paid the month after the completion of all 4 consecutive months of qualification.
For example, a $20K in 2020 award earned in April 2020 (the Paid-As Rank was held January, February, March, and April) will be paid via Direct Deposit around May 20, 2020 or with the May 2020 PV commission cheque around June 15, 2020 if the Business Leader isn’t set up on Direct Deposit.
6. Any return of product that counted toward qualification of any award will disqualify that award and will result in the forfeiture/deduction of any award(s) paid from the qualifier and/or his or her upline Business Leader.
7. $20K in 2020 bonuses may not be earned from a reorganization, roll-up, or sponsorship line movement. Shaklee reserves the right to determine in its sole discretion whether an award is appropriate.
8. To receive $20K in 2020 bonuses, a qualifier must meet all eligibility requirements including but not limited to:
- Advancing to a new higher Paid-As Rank (above one’s base rank)
- Completing the required maintenance of that new Paid-As Rank
- Increasing Organizational Volume (OV) for each month after the rank advancement over the month prior to the rank advancement; see examples below for this final requirement
- All other rules and requirements; visit here: https://events.shaklee.com/20k-in-2020-can/#additional-terms-conditions-pr-provisions
Example A: successful qualification
Leader Janice, who has a base rank of Executive Coordinator, advances in Paid-As Rank from Executive Coordinator to Senior Executive Coordinator. Her OV in the month prior to her rank advancement was 26,450 and grew to 31,825 in the month of her advancement. Janice must maintain her new Paid-As Rank for 3 additional consecutive months, and her OV must remain above 26,450 in each month of her maintenance, to be eligible to receive the $20K in 2020 bonus for Senior Executive Coordinator.
Example B: unsuccessful qualification
Leader Robert, whose base rank is Senior Coordinator, advances in Paid-As Rank from Senior Coordinator to Executive Coordinator. In the month prior to his rank advancement, he had 24,675 OV but was missing his third First Generation Leader Leg to qualify for Executive Coordinator. In the month of his rank advancement, Robert acquires his third First Generation Leader Leg; however, his OV falls to 20,320 – lower than his OV in the month prior to his rank advancement. This month will not count as his first month at the new higher Paid-As Rank because his OV is not higher than his OV in the month prior to his rank advancement. If, in the next month, Robert remains at the new higher Paid-As Rank and increases his OV to a level above 24,675, that month may count as his first month at the new higher Paid-As Rank. Business Leader growth may be another factor that’s considered in whether a qualification is successful or not.
Additional Terms and Conditions
$20K in 2020 and Director Promotions
The $20K in 2020 incentive is designed to reward Business Leaders for developing organizations and increasing in rank through the recruitment, motivation, and retention of Distributors and Business Leaders, and the productive development of a Member base, in an accelerated time frame. It is not consistent with the spirit of the program to allow people to earn the $20K in 2020 bonus as a result of reorganizing sponsorship lines.
$20K in 2020 and Reorganizations
The Company (i.e., Shaklee) will not approve any reorganization or sponsorship line movement where the new Sponsor, new Business Leader, any intervening Distributor between the new Sponsor and new Business Leader, or any upline Business Leader within six generations is in qualification for a $20K in 2020 incentive or is still within the time frame where he or she could be in qualification for a $20K in 2020 incentive, unless the new Sponsor, new Business Leader, any intervening Distributors, and the six upline Business Leaders relinquish their eligibility to participate in the $20K in 2020 incentive, as evidenced by their signatures on the Reorganization Form.
From time to time, a new prospect may accidentally sign up on the wrong Personal Website, or under the wrong sponsor, through no fault of the Website owner. In those cases, the new Member/Distributor and/or his or her current Business Leader of record may contact Shaklee with the Reorganization Form within 30 days of signing up online to be transferred to the correct sponsor. In such cases, the Original Sponsor will also be changed and the $20K in 2020 eligibility of the uplines of the Original Sponsor will not be affected.
In addition, the Company reserves the right to review, disallow, and/or rescind any reorganization into or within the downline of anyone who they promote to any Business Leader rank that assists in qualifying for any $20K in 2020 incentive if Shaklee determines that qualification for the $20K for 2020 award is due in whole or in part to the reorganization. Alternatively, the Company reserves the right to exclude any of the uplines involved, regardless of rank, from participation in the $20K in 2020 incentive.
In the case of a separation, divorce, or full or partial dissolution of a Combined Distributorship, if any first level Shaklee Family Member is moved with the departing member, then, for purposes of the $20K in 2020 incentive, the Company will treat the transaction as a reorganization subject to the rules above. If there’s a court order specifying how the first levels are to be divided, Shaklee will determine on a case-by-case basis eligibility for participating in the $20K in 2020 incentive.
$20K in 2020 and Purchase/Sale or Survivorship Transactions
In the case of a Purchase/Sale or Survivorship transaction, the buyer/transferee may no longer participate in the $20K in 2020 incentive.
- The $20K in 2020 eligibility and qualifications, if any, of the seller/transferor are considered personal to the seller/transferor and do not transfer to the buyer/transferee
- In addition, the buyer/transferee relinquishes any $20K in 2020 eligibility or qualifications related to the sponsorship position he or she is leaving
In order to participate in the $20K in 2020 bonus, you must be in compliance with all provisions of the Statement of Privileges and Responsibilities of Shaklee Family Members (P&R), including, but not limited to, the following:
Chapter 1, Other Director Requirements Section
Although Business Leaders may share the expense of office space, and one Business Leader may help another through temporary difficulties (but not on a continuing or indeterminate basis), Business Leaders may not prop up a sham or “paper” Business Leader through diverted orders or other devices. “Paper” Business Leaders are those who are Business Leaders in name only and do not actively operate their Shaklee businesses but allow other Business Leaders to sustain and direct their sales leadership functions. This prohibition applies to all Business Leader ranks.
Chapter 3, Export/Import Policy Section
The products of Shaklee Canada Inc. have been formulated, manufactured, and labelled to comply with Canadian regulatory requirements. The Shaklee products formulated, manufactured, and labelled to comply with the laws of other countries, including the United States, do not necessarily comply with Canadian regulatory requirements.

Shaklee Canada Inc. will not honour any product guarantee or warranty for products sold in violation of this provision, and any Shaklee Family Member or Shaklee Independent Distributor engaging in such sales will be solely responsible for the products and any related claims or complaints.
Shaklee Independent Distributors may, however, sell and ship Shaklee products to purchasers in other countries where Shaklee does not do business for the purchaser’s personal use only and not for resale to others. If Shaklee operates a business in any market, products of another country may not be shipped to that market for any purpose whatsoever.
