American Express EMV terminal rebate for small business

Eligible U.S. small merchants who have obtained an upgraded EMV point of sale system, can request a one-time $100 reimbursement at www.americanexpress.com/fightfraud. Requests for reimbursement must be submitted by April 30, 2015.

Basic rules:

  • upgrade to a chip-enabled point of sale system (EMV)
  • apply by April 30, 2015
  • U.S. Small merchants with less than $3 million in annual American Express charge volume are eligible
  • Online only businesses and government merchants are excluded.
  • Limit one (1) $100 Reward Card per merchant. (If you have multiple locations with different merchant accounts and EIN, you can apply for each.)

We recommend only buying a terminal that supports both NFC and EMV. Why limit how customers can pay in the future? See also our EMV buyers guide.
