Guess what? Amex has extended the deadline on their “Small Business Saturday” $25 credit promotion. It was originally set up to be a one day event (11/27 only) and limited to the first 100k cardmembers that signed up. Now it will run until 12/31, and is open to the first 300k who sign up.
Briefly, you need to register your Amex card (click that link to do so) and then spend $25 at an eligible merchant before December 31st.
Eligible merchants include:
…any independently owned small businesses that accept the American Express Card. Purchases made online, at large, national chains, at franchised business locations and at government agencies are not eligible. Prepaid, corporate cards and ExpressPay transactions are not eligible.
Once you complete the steps, you’ll receive a $25 statement credit (typically within 5 business days). This offer is limited to one credit per cardmember, so if you’ve already participated, then you can’t do it again.
As I said before, this is a win-win for you and the merchant, so if you know of a local business that accepts Amex, you should consider signing up and then dropping by for some holiday shopping.
