What is Small Business Saturday?

In 2010, to support small business, American Express coined the term Small Business Saturday. It’s November 24th, the Saturday after Black Friday. On this day, to encourage consumers to shop small and shop local, American Express is offering a $25 statement credit to those who enroll for their offer and spend $25 or more to shop or dine local at any of the merchants they’ve listed on the map at shopsmall.com. Of course, you need to use your AmEx card to get the statement credit.

How to get $25 Statement Credit on your American Express card?

1) Go to https://enroll.amexnetwork.com/US/en/SBS2012/ and enroll your AmEx card to be eligible for the statement credit. Enrollment begins November 18th until Nov 24th. However, they have a quota for how much credit they can offer so hurry before they run out.

2) On Nov 24th, spend $25 in one transaction at any of the merchants listed on the map at shopsmall.com (scroll down the page to see the map). Enter your zip to find which merchants around you are eligible.

3)American Express will issue you a $25 credit on your statement within 8 weeks of your transaction.

Note: this offer is only valid on in-store locations. Online purchases are not eligible for the statement credit. But even without the credit, consider shopping local and support your community.
