LRP Requirement for Travel Reimbursement
In order to be eligible for reimbursement to an out-of-area location, you must have a WA in the immediate out-of-area location that processes an LRP order of a minimum of 100PV or more within the month that you travel to this location. New Enrollees enrolled during the same month of travel do not meet this LRP requirement.
You can be reimbursed up to $150 per trip, paid at $0.18 per mile you drive to and from a location. You must drive at least 50 miles (one way) from your home to qualify. Remember that all fuel receipts from each area you traveled to hold an event, must be saved in order to be eligible for reimbursement for mileage.
- Basic Trip Example: Drive from your home in Phoenix, AZ, to an event in Tucson, AZ,
and back home (116 miles one way; 232 miles total). Then request a reimbursement for a 232-mile
driving trip. Paid at $0.18 per mile, you will receive $41.76 (232 x $0.18 = $41.76).
- Smaller Trip Combo Example: If you travel 30 miles from home to hold an event
(not eligible for reimbursement alone) then travel another 30 miles from the first location and
hold another event (60 miles total), you would be eligible for reimbursement of the first and
second trip combined (120 round trip; 120 x $0.18 = $21.60).
- Multi-Trip: Trip section 1—Seattle to Denver; Trip section 2—Denver to Kansas City; Trip section 3: Kansas City to Atlanta.
Keep in mind you must drive a minimum of 50 miles between each location in order to count each leg as a separate trip. You would then submit
3 separate driving trips, along with 3 separate fuel receipts from each area, within the reimbursement section. Trip 1 is 1,333 miles one way
(1,333 X $0.18 = $239.94); Trip 2 is 604 miles one way (604 x $0.18 = $108.72); Trip 3 is 801 miles one-way (801 X $0.18 = $144.18). You are
allowed to be reimbursed $150 per trip, meaning your reimbursement total in this example would be $450.00.
You must receive pre-approval from your Diamond Club Project Manager prior to renting a car. Rental Car reimbursements are only eligible if the rental is used in the “Driving Trip after Flight” example below. All other rental car purchases will be covered by the Diamond Club member.
- Rental Car Reimbursement Requirements:
A rental car is only eligible for reimbursement in a driving after flight trip.
You must first fly into an area in which you have a qualified team member who places
a 100pv LRP order and hold an event. You are then eligible to rent a car to drive at
least 50 miles from where you flew in to where you have another qualified team member
in the area and hold another event. Rental cars are not eligible for reimbursement if
you fly into an area and rent a car to drive around in that area. An example of an eligible
rental reimbursement is below.
- Qualified Rental:
There are two steps you must complete to qualify for a rental car: Step 1: You must fly to an
out-of-area location and hold a qualified Diamond Club event in the immediate area. You must
also have a Wellness Advocate who resides in this immediate area who has processed a minimum
single 100PV LRP order during the month you travel. An example would be if you fly into Denver,
CO, and hold an event. In Denver, you must have a Wellness Advocate who resides in Denver and
has processed a single minimum 100PV LRP order during the month you traveled. Step 2: Rent a
car and travel at least 50 miles from the location. There, you must hold another qualified
Diamond Club event and have someone who resides in the immediate area of the event location
and who has processed the single minimum 100PV LRP order for the month. Using the same example
from step 1, rent a car and travel to Fountain, CO (84.5 miles), and hold a qualified Diamond
Club event and also have a Wellness Advocate who resides immediately in Fountain and has
processed a 100PV LRP order during the month you traveled there.
- ATTENTION! You will not be reimbursed for using a rental car from your home location to any destination for any trip.
It must be used in the examples above to qualify for reimbursement.
- Reimbursements will be paid each month with your monthly primary bonus commissions. It is paid out as one check or direct deposit and not separately.
- Completely fill out the reimbursement form by midnight MST, on the 2nd of each month.
- A max of 6 out of area trips can be submitted each month.
- If you opt out of DC or do not meet the requirements to continue with the program you will be reimbursed for the months you participated in.
