Small Small and Save with American Express when you register your card

Every year we like to support Small Businesses on Small Business Saturday–but this year American Express is offering a premium to cardholder over the summer months.  Here’s the deal: Card Members will get $5 back after they spend $10+ directly with an eligible small business up to 10x.  Cardholders must  enroll by 7/26/2020 to get the savings. Then they must spend at a Small Business, using their American Express Card,  by 9/20/2020. Shopping small helps retailers that may not have the marketing budgets big stores have, but have quality goods, to compete with massive sales the big box stores offer.  The savings, and the support of Small Business is especially appreciated during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Amex Shop Small June 2020

American Express is offering members some special savings to shop small. 

Take the opportunity to shop with your favorite small business today and use your Amex Card to save.  Some of the businesses that I have been patronizing include Etsy sellers who are selling face masks, small family restaurants and grocery stores.   Even if your favorite restaurant isn’t open yet, its a great time to buy a gift card and support them during these tough times.
