Back in September, American Express announced that its annual Small Business Saturday promotion where Amex cardholders can get statement credits for using their card on purchases at participating local merchants would be taking place on Saturday, November 30 this year. Though details were scarce at the time, the company has since said registration would open at 12:00am (midnight) Mountain Standard Time on Sunday, November 24, and would remain open until 11:59pm MST on November 30.

Small Business Saturday will return this year on November 30th.

Small Business Saturday will return this year on November 30th.

However, because the number of registrations is limited, I would encourage you to register your eligible American Express cards as soon as possible at the following registration site (note the link might not be working at time of publication until registration goes live tonight).

Since it launched back in 2010, Small Business Saturday has become a well-entrenched part of the post-Thanksgiving shopping craze, joining Black Friday and Cyber Monday as one of the busiest shopping days of the year. The purpose of Small Business Saturday is to bring shoppers into the many brick and mortar businesses in their own towns that frequently get overlooked in favor of big box stores and department stores by giving Amex cardholders a statement credit when they used an American Express card – personal or business – at a participating business. In the past, statement credits have been around $25, but this year it’s a mere $10. Still, you can register as many Amex cards as you have and get the $10 statement credit once on each of them, so you might as well take advantage of the savings, even if they are smaller than in years past. Just note per the terms & conditions, your purchase must be more than $10 in order to qualify for the credit and if you return the merchandise, the statement credit will be revoked.

So good luck registering all your cards, and then in the week between now and Small Business Saturday, you can check out this site which lists all the small businesses in your area so you can plan your shopping and be sure to get the statement credit on your purchases.

    Thanks for the reminder. Do you know if the Blue Cash, Hilton Surpass and SPG cards are included or only the non-cobranded cards? What about business cards? Thanks.

    Come on TPG, huuuuuuuge error that could cost your readers – you DO NOT have to spend MORE than $10, you have to spend $10 OR more. Think of all those people you almost sent out trying to buy $10.01 gift cards from local eateries.

    Based on last year’s SBS, you can use ANY AmEx as long as its registered. This includes cards with AU; each AU can run a charge and each charge will qualify for the $10 statement credit.

    My bad. Corporate cards are NOT eligible.

    Hi there,
    I noticed that when registering your Card for the American Express Card Member Offer for Small Business Saturday one of the restrictions says Corporate Cards and all prepaid Card products (other than American Express Serve ) are not eligible. This may sound like a silly question but is a Amex Business Card considered (ie Amex SPG Business, Amex Business Gold Card…) count as a “corporate card” and therefore ineligible?
