What can I buy here?

  • html emails, text emails with links and web banners
  • front office signage

How do I buy promotions?

Once you register on the site, follow the simple instructions for browsing and viewing various promotions and creative components. When you’re ready to purchase a promotion, it’s easy:

  1. Select the promotion you wish to purchase, with or without an American Express product offer
  2. Select some or all of the creative components to buy
  3. Decide to purchase exclusive rights to the entire promotion in your state(s)
  4. Provide a credit card for purchase and payment
  5. Enjoy unrestricted access to materials for up to 12 months, conveniently housed in your download area.

How much do promotions cost?

All materials are available `a la carte (AdPak, Direct Mail Pak, E-Pak, Point-of-Sale Pak, Signage) or as a total promotion package (CompletePak). We’ve provided the lowest pricing possible, typically less than you would pay for freelance talent or even in-house designers for the same work. If you purchase an entire promotion, the price is further discounted from the a la carte prices shown on the order form. You may also purchase exclusive use of a promotion in your state(s), but only when you purchase the CompletePak.

What does exclusivity mean?

With the purchase of a CompletePak, you may also purchase the exclusive rights to use that promotion in the state(s) that you specify. These exclusive rights prohibit the sale of the promotion or its `a la carte pieces to financial institutions located in the states for which you have purchased exclusive rights. The exclusivity runs for 18 months from the date of purchase. Exclusivity costs an additional amount for each state you choose.

How much does exclusivity cost?

Exclusivity costs $1800 per state.
