Small Business Saturday

American Express is supporting local small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving by offering a $10 American Express statement credit when you spend $10 or more.

You can register your participating American Express card/s (Corporate and prepaid cards such as Bluebird, are not eligible).

Registration is now open for Small Business Saturday.  Registration closes at 11:59 p.m. MST on November 29, 2014 OR once the registration limit has been reached, whichever comes first.

So you should register now.

Splitting transactions

When you spend $10 or more in a single transaction, you’ll get a $10 statement credit.

Each transaction must be $10 or more.

So if your total comes to $36 and you have three American Express cards, you can split the transaction into 3 separate charges of $12 each.

Splitting the transactions into $12 each means that each of your three American Express cards will get a $10 statement credit.

The secret to more cash back: authorized users

Because you get a $10 statement credit for each American Express card (up to $30), you should register all your American Express cards, including American Express cards issued by other banks and authorized user cards.

American Express cards issued by Barclays, and Citibank can be registered for Small Business Saturday.  But you can not register authorized users on those cards because they have the same credit card number.

Authorized users on American Express cards have a separate card number.  This means each American Express card, including cards on the same account, can be registered for the promotion.

Although, you can only get up to $30 in statement credits for each registered American Express card.

American Express business cards

You can also register your American Express  business cards.

Summary of the fine print:

  • Limit of three $10 statement credits per American Express card
  • You have to register your American Express card to get the statement credit
  • There are a limited number of registrations accepted. Registration will close on November 29, 2014
  • You have to spend $10 or more in 1 transaction at a qualifying small business
  • Only in store transactions at small businesses on the Shop Small Map qualify

Hi Kiki,

I have a couple of shops in mind, but I can't reveal their names, otherwise it will spoil Christmas surprises. :)
