Don’t forget, today is American Express’s annual Small Business Saturday, where Amex cardholders can receive statement credits on purchases made with their American Express cards at local businesses. 

TODAY is Small Business Saturday. Shop with your Amex and receive statement credits!
TODAY is Small Business Saturday. Shop with your Amex and receive statement credits!

The purpose of Small Business Saturday is to draw attention to the many brick and mortar businesses that frequently get overlooked by giving Amex cardholders a statement credit when they use an American Express card at a participating business.

So today ONLY, American Express cardholders will receive up to three $10 statement credit on purchases of $10 or more for up to $30 in statement credits per registered card when they shop at small businesses.

You need to have previously registered the card, and if the cap hasn’t been reached, you can still register before you shop today. You can register and use each Amex card you have – personal and business as well as primary and additional accounts – and get up to $30 statement credit for each, so the more cards you have, the more potential savings. This year, you can also register your American Express Bluebird card. For more information and rules, click here
