Get $10 free to spend at Little River Trading Company, Dandy Lions Gifts, Bristol & Bragg, or other local businesses on Small Business Saturday

November 12, 2013

It’s time for the Fourth Annual Small Business Saturday, which will take place on November 30. It’s a little different than in previous years, in that you get $10 free to shop, instead of the $25 credit offered in previous years. Still, it’s a free $10, which is nice.

You can register your American Express card here starting November 24, and then on Nov. 30 head to a small, locally-owned business, spend $10 or more using the card you registered, and you’ll receive a $10 statement credit within a few days. (Only one credit per account – not per card – and a few other small-print details here.)

I’ve done this for the past three years and it worked like a charm. Last year I made a purchase at Bristol & Bragg Jewelers, and received my credit with no problems. Two years ago I spent $26 before tax at Little River Trading Company, and in about 48 hours I had received a $25 credit on my AmEx account. I love this because I’m supporting a local company – they get to keep my $26 – and it’s American Express that’s giving me my money back.

What qualifies something as a small business? It must be locally owned and not part of a chain. Call ahead, because a number of small businesses don’t accept AmEx, either.

Local Blount County companies that accept AmEx include Little River Trading Company, Dandy Lions Gifts, and Bristol & Bragg. What’s your favorite business to shop at on Small Business Saturday?
