The annual Small Business Saturday event is today, November 29. This is a great time to support your local small businesses and do a little more holiday shopping! If you have an American Express card and you sign up for the Amex promotion, you will get a $10 credit to your card when you spend $10 or more at a qualifying business.
To qualify to receive the credit, you have to register your American Express card through the American Express Small Business Saturday website . Once you receive the confirmation that you have successfully enrolled (which happened immediately last year), head over to their website and click on the Visit the Map link to check out the qualifying small businesses near you.
You have to spend $10 or more in one transaction on Saturday, November 29, to get the credit. If you spend less than that, you will not get the credit. The $10 has to be spend all at once, from the same store, in the same transaction. You will receive the statement credit within 90 days. You will want to read the fine print on this found on their website. You can get the $10 credit up to 3 times. See their website for all the details.
