Small Business Saturday: get 3 $10 credits when you shop at 3 small businesses on Nov. 29 and use AmEx!

November 15, 2014


Saturday, November 29 is the fifth annual Small Business Saturday, and many local businesses will have deals to celebrate! My favorite promotion on this day is the one from American Express. This year, when you shop at an approved small business (must be independently owned and must accept American Express, see list here) and spend at least $10, AmEx will refund you $10 via a statement credit. The best part is, this year, they’re allowing you to receive three $10 credits at three different businesses! You must purchase $10 or more in store (not online), and it must happen on November 29. Also, you MUST register your American Express card ahead of time, and you can do that here starting November 16 (tomorrow).

I’ve done this for the past four years and it has always worked like a charm. I love this because I’m supporting a local company – they get to keep my $10+ – 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?
