This Saturday is Small Business Saturday. As I’ve mentioned in an earlier post, American Express is offering a $25 credit on your account if you spend at least $25 at a small business this Saturday. You are required to register your card to be eligible to get the deal. You can register as many American Express cards as you have. This includes both unbranded ones (like the Amex Gold) and co-branded ones (like Starwood and Citi AAdvantage Amex). Go to this site to register.
I did this last year and it worked perfectly. The only complaint I had is there was no list of business that American Express considered a small business. I’m happy to say this year, there is a list. Go to their Facebook page. You can enter a zip code and it will list out small businesses in that area code that accept American Express.
You can use the credit at a number of businesses including retail stores, restaurants and grocery stores (we have a local grocery store near our house that takes American Express). So get creative!
In case I don’t get to post tomorrow, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! May you enjoy good food and good company!
