Shop Small. Save Big.

Registration for American Express’ Small Business Saturday started this morning!  Register your American Express card now and on Saturday, November 29, use that card for an in-store transaction at a local small business for a purchase of $10 or more and you’ll receive a $10 statement credit for up to three small businesses. You can earn up to $30 in statement credits! And if you have multiple American Express cards, each one qualifies individually. I happen to have three, so I’ll be earning/saving $90 that day.

In past years, the Small Business Saturday offer was a one-time $25 statement credit at one small business.  Many small businesses in my area offered bonus gift cards with the purchase of regular gift cards that day. My favorite nail salon offered a bonus $25 gift card, when you bought a $25 gift card. So I’d end up paying $0, for $50 in gift cards. It was a killer deal. I’m hoping they’re offering something similar this year.
