Since it first took place on November 27, 2010, American Express's annual Small Business Saturday has become a part of the “post-Thanksgiving” shopping craze, joining Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The purpose of Small Business Saturday is to draw attention to the many brick and mortar businesses that frequently get overlooked by giving cardholders a $25 statement credit when they used an American Express card - personal or business - at a participating business.

This year's small Business Saturday will be taking place on November 24th. Registration is officially open tomorrow, November 18, at 12:00 am MST and is limited, so be sure to sign up quickly to get in on the statement credit.

Terms & Conditions

To receive the $25 statement credit, the Cardmember must use his or her enrolled Card to spend $25 or more in a single, in-store transaction at a qualifying small business location on Saturday, November 24, 2012. To receive the credit, the transaction must equal $25 or more (for example, if your transaction is only for $15, you will not receive a credit). Multiple transactions of less than $25 will not qualify even if the combined total of those transactions is over $25.

Please note that business location information provided on the Shop Small® Map and Square Directory may contain inaccuracies or errors, including as a result of information provided by third parties.
