No purchase or payment necessary to participate
Young Living Essential Oils, LC, located at building 11, Third Floor, 566 Chiswick high Road, London W4 5YS (“Young Living”) is launching the Elite Express program on April 1, 2018, at 12 a.m., GMT (“Program Initiation Date”). Distributors who achieve the rank of Senior Star are eligible to participate in the Elite Express program. The Elite Express program consists of five reward tracks and one bonus track that offer an added incentive for Distributors to achieve and maintain leadership ranks within the Young Living Compensation Plan, as outlined in that plan. Distributors are provided with rewards and recognition for achieving specified leadership ranks within a specifically defined amount of time from a prequalifying rank.
The Elite Express program is an additional incentive intended to motivate and reward elite, high‐performing Distributors. While all Distributors are encouraged to participate, it is important to remember that it is not intended to replace other qualifications or incentives that are offered to Young Living’s Distributor base, including compensation and bonuses offered under the Young Living Compensation Plan. However, as of April 1, 2018, Elite Express will replace the original Elite Express program existing prior to the Program Initiation Date. Distributors who qualify for the rank of Star by March 31, 2018, will be grandfathered into the original Elite Express program. Those Distributors will be eligible to qualify for their next track in the old Elite Express program, then will be moved into the new Elite Express program. The new Elite Express program as described below.
1. A participating Distributor must achieve a prequalifying rank for each specific reward track (described below) to initiate the beginning of a qualification period.
2. The Distributor must maintain the prequalifying rank throughout the qualification period.
3. The Distributor must achieve the qualifying rank for each reward track within the qualifying period specified for each reward.
4. The qualification period for each reward track begins on the 1st of the month following a Distributor's first-time achievement of the prequalifying rank.
5. Distributors will see the Express Reward points and Essential Reward points will be added after the commission period has finalized.
The Elite Express program is open to Young Living Distributors (“Distributors”) who are active, have achieved at least the rank of Senior Star, are in good standing, are at least 18 years of age, and have a primary billing address located in the United States of America, Canada, Europe, Mexico, New Zealand, or Ecuador. This promotion shall exclude all Distributors in NFR markets and is void where prohibited. Active Distributors are Distributors who have made a purchase of at least 50 PV in the last 12 months and signed the Young Living Distributor Agreement. Distributors in good standing are in compliance with all terms of Young Living’s Distributor Agreement and Policies and Procedures.

Limitations of Liability:
Young Living is not responsible for and the winners will not receive the difference, if any, between the actual value of a prize at the time of award and the ARV stated in these Official Rules or in any promotion‐related correspondence or materials.

Young Living reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to void any order of Distributors who Young Living believes have attempted to tamper with or impair the administration, security, or fairness of the Elite Express program or to disqualify any Distributor who acts in a non‐sportsmanlike manner or with the intent to threaten or harass any other person. By participating in the Elite Express program, each Distributor waives all rights to claim punitive, incidental and consequential damages, attorneys’ fees, or any damages other than actual out‐of‐pocket costs or losses that may arise in connection with participation in the Elite Express program, acceptance, possession, and/or use of a reward. All causes of action arising out of or in connection with the Elite Express program or any reward awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action. Some jurisdictions may not allow certain limitations on damages or the ability to seek damages through a class action, so some of these restrictions may not apply to you.
