During small business Saturday (Saturday November 26th) you can get a $25 statement credit when using a registered American Express credit card at participating small businesses in your local community (must spend $25+ with this Amex card). You can only receive one credit per American Express card, but there is no limit to the number of cards you can register. If you have multiple Amex cards and have an expensive purchase, have the local business split the charges amongst the various cards you have!
To be eligible, you must first register for this promotion. I wrote about this promotion before, but want to remind you all to register-register-register! Do not forget as this is free money! If you are registering multiple cards, I would recommend using different email addresses (not sure this is necessary, but better safe then sorry).
To find out participating Small Businesses in your area, go to the Small Business Saturday Facebook page, click the + sign next to “See where you can shop to earn your $25 statement credit,” enter your zip code, and click “Go.” This is a great way to support your local businesses while also getting something for free – a win-win situation!
I personally will be using my credit at a local restaurant that I love! Glad I already have my Saturday night dinner planned! Which local business will you be supported?
And just a side note… unfortunately, corporate cards are not eligible but all other American Express cards can be registered – another great advantage of an American Express points/miles earning credit card. I registered my Starwood American Express card and my husband’s Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express Open (which I did not forget this time! – if you read yesterday’s post you will understand this).
