I have now received an email from Alliance Marketing Representative explaining the cost structure.
Call or email me if you need a copy of this email!

American Express Plenti Program
I have been asked by members about this new American Express Program presented by Alliance. My first opinion is that anytime you are being asked to sign something that says you will pay for anything and you DO NOT know all of the costs – DON’T DO IT! I called the Association legal counsel and he actually laughed and said – never ever sign anything that is not complete with all the prices, terms and conditions. Simply put the very strong suggestion from both the Association and our legal counsel is DO NOT SIGN THIS!

Now, take notes, ask questions, request that all questions be answered in writing and yes, email is OK. Keep notes of any meetings you have and the questions you asked – if you feel intimated, then defiantly in my opinion don’t sign. In fact the Associations position has always been seek good legal advice before you sign anything. Now, some will say, this will cost me money – well it is clear from what I have read so far, this Program will cost you money – just don’t know how much – it is clear that the benefits of this program as NOT clear.

For a detailed paragraph review of the agreement – please call or email me and I will send to you for review.

The questions has been asked and I will respond to the question – Are we required to participate in this program?

Connecticut Gasoline Franchise Law states the following:

(e) No franchisor shall terminate, cancel or fail to renew a franchise for the failure or refusal of the franchisee to do any of the following: (1) Refusal to take part in promotional campaigns of the franchisor’s products; (2) failure to meet sales quotas suggested by the franchisor; (3) refusal to sell any product at a price suggested by the franchisor or supplier;

If you cannot decide for yourself what this says, then my suggestion is you must seek legal advice and GASDA suggest you call the office of A J Barr and ask for AJ or John Morgan they can be reached at 203-356-1595
