Although Amex got rid of their “Shop Small” offers during Thanksgiving, they recently put together an offer where you can receive a $5 statement credit on a $20+ purchase at many small business merchants. While it is only a one-time $5 statement credit offer, it is still better then nothing! It also expires tomorrow, August 29, 2017.
You can check to see which merchants will trigger the statement credit by checking the Amex Shop Small Map. Only the 2017 “Members Favorites” businesses will apply. If you search by location, make sure to check for the ones that have the “Card Member Favorite” icon to the right of the name. My go-to Thai restaurant down the street is included, so this will be an easy $5 savings for me!
Unfortunately, this is a targeted offer and you’ll have to check your AmericanExpress.com account to see if you are eligible. Out of all of my cards, only 1 of them has this offer! If you happen to have this offer on multiple American Express cards, make sure to use the multi-tab trick to register on all your cards. Make sure to read this post first BEFORE saving the offer to your card!
