Earn up to $20,000 in the $20K for 2020 Incentive

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 earningsup 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.

Who Is Eligible?

All new and existing Preferred Members, Distributors and Business Leaders up to Senior Master Coordinators are eligible to participate. 

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 (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 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 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 July 2019 PV Month.  Annie’s 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 4 consecutive months to earn any of the potential $20K in 2020 Rank Bonuses.    

Example 3:  Alan promoted to his highest Paid As Rank of Senior Director in September 2017 and held that rank in 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.  Alan 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 4 consecutive months to earn any of the potential $20K in 2020 Rank Bonuses.

**Promote to the new Paid As Rank of Director between July 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020 to begin qualification for the $500 Director Bonus.
  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, Jim will be required to complete the maintenance period for the Sr. Director rank (January + 3 months maintenance in February, March and April PV months) before he can start qualifications for the rank of Coordinator in May, June, July and August PV months. 
  2. Any new rank qualifications met by December 2020 will be permitted to continue maintenance to earn award(s) up to and including the rank held in December 2020 or until the maximum of $20,000 in awards are paid.  You must maintain the Paid As Rank that you were in December for the remainder of the maintenance period in order to achieve all your eligible rewards.  
    For example, Brad promotes to the new Paid As Rank of Senior Coordinator in October 2020 PV month.  He holds that rank in November PV month and promotes to the Paid As Rank of Executive Coordinator in December PV month.  Brad will be required to complete the maintenance period for the Paid As Senior Coordinator Rank through 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 will 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 he dropped below Executive Coordinator, he would not 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 Sr. Coordinator ($6,000), Executive Coordinator ($10,000), and Sr. Executive Coordinator ($10,000) during the incentive period, Kelly will earn the maximum reward 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, then Kevin and Joe will need to complete their maintenance period through August 2020 before Jim can start qualifying for his Senior Director bonus.  
  5. 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.
  6. 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 check around June 15, 2020 if they are not set up on Direct Deposit. 
  7.  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 their upline Business Leader(s). 
  8. $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.
  9. To receive $20K for 2020 Bonuses, a qualifier must meet all eligibility requirements including but not limited to:
          1. Advancing to a new higher Paid-As Rank (above your Base Rank).
          2. Completing the required maintenance of that new Paid-As Rank.
          3. 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.

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.  Janice’s Organizational Volume 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 for 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, Robert had 24,675 Organizational Volume, 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 Organizational Volume 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 is considered in whether a qualification is successful or not. 

$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 timeframe.  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 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 timeframe where they 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 their current Business Leader of record may contact Shaklee with the Reorganization Application within 30 days of signing up online to be transferred to the correct sponsor.  In such cases, the Original Sponsor will be changed as well 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, to disallow and/or to rescind any reorganization into or within the downline of anyone that they promote to any Business Leader rank which 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 is a court order specifying how the first levels are to be divided, then Shaklee will determine on a case-by-case basis whether the departing members are eligible for $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 $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 they are leaving. 

P&R Provisions

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, PV Transfers Section  

Business Leaders may not transfer any PV amounts out of their account in any given month that would bring their volume below the level required for them to maintain rank.  

A Legacy Business Leader may make a PV Transfer to a Dream Plan Business Leader.  To cover the Company’s costs, including equalizing the difference in bonuses and price tiers between the Dream Plan and the Legacy Plan, Shaklee will charge the Legacy Business Leader’s account an amount equal to 15% of the PV transferred and the charge will be deducted on the Legacy Business Leader’s Bonus Statement.  For example, if a Legacy Business Leader transfers 100 PV to a Dream Plan Business Leader, $15 will be deducted on the Legacy Business Leader’s Bonus Statement. 

No PV Transfers may be made from anyone in the Dream Plan to anyone in the Legacy Plan. 

No Shaklee Family Member may transfer more than 250 PV total to any other Shaklee Family Member in a given month. 

No Shaklee Family Member may receive, whether directly or indirectly (including by transfers to Members, Distributors or Associates in the Shaklee Family Member’s Personal Group) more than 250 PV transferred from all sources combined in any given month.  

Transfers from non-Business Leaders to Business Leaders are not permitted, except in exceptional situations and with Home Office approval.  

Distributors and Associates who have sufficient Personal Volume may transfer PV to another Shaklee Family Member in their Personal Group if their Business Leader of record participates in the PDD Program, and if the Distributor or Associate has sufficient Personal Volume, subject to the foregoing 250 PV limits on transfers and receipts.  

Any misuse of the PV transfer to circumvent sponsorship or leadership requirements, such as maintaining “paper” Business Leaders, is a breach of the P&R.  

PV credits for all sales in any given month to a Shaklee Family Member in another Business Leader’s Personal Group must be transferred to the purchasing Shaklee Family Member if their Business Leader of record participates in the PDD Program, or to the Shaklee Family Member’s Business Leader of record if not. Any transfers to a Shaklee Family Member in another Business Leader’s Personal Group will be included in the 250 PV maximum of that Shaklee Family Member, of the Shaklee Family Member’s Business Leader of record and of any Shaklee Family Members who intervene in the sponsorship line between the Shaklee Family Member and the Business Leader of record.
