During small business Saturday (Saturday November 29th) you can get up to a $30 statement credit when using a registered American Express credit card at participating small businesses in your local community. With each card you are able to get a $10 statement credit with a $10 purchase up to 3 times. 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 starting TODAY! Or, you can tweet #AmexShopSmall with every Twitter account that is linked to an American Express credit card. Registration is limited, so I suggest registering now!
Example of Amex cards you can register:
- Starwood American Express
- Hilton American Express
- Costco American Express
- Bloomingdales American Express
- Macy’s American Express
- American Express Gold Rewards Card
- American Express Platinum Card
- Citi AAdvantage American Express
- Blue Cash Everyday by American Express
- Amex EveryDay
- Bluebird by American Express
- American Express Serve
There are obviously more Amex cards out there but the list above is a good sample. These include co-branded Amex cards, Citi Amex cards, store specific Amex cards, and then your simple Amex cards that earn Membership Rewards points. Business versions of these cards also qualify. Although corporate credit cards will not work. If you have added authorized users, those cards are also eligible as long as they have a separate account number from the primary card. So secondary cards that have the same account number which is typically the case for the Citi American Express cards will not work.
I haven’t yet figured out definitely where I will be “shopping” on Small Business Saturday, but most likely a local restaurant. Last year I purchased a bunch of gift cards to use at a future time.
