Small Business Saturday: American Express Free $25 Shopping Credit

For the past few years, American Express has offered its cardholders a special incentive to shop at small local businesses on Small Business Saturday (the day after Black Friday). They will give you a $25 credit on your American Express card when you register your card first.

To get your $25 credit:

1) Go to and scroll down to the bottom of the page where it says “Enroll Now”.

2) Enter your name and American Express card number and email address.

3) Use your enrolled Card to spend $25 or more in a single, in-store transaction at a qualifying small business location on November 24, 2012. For information about qualifying small business locations, visit

4) Get a one-time $25 statement credit for that transaction from American Express within 8 weeks.

Because every American Express card is issued a different number, you and your spouse may both be able to register.

Read all of the offer instructions carefully to make sure you don’t miss out on your credit!

What are your favorite local small businesses?

    I did this last year and it was awesome- I shop at Whistle Stop- I highly recommend it!!!! Very nice shopping experience way better than Toys R Us.

    Does anyone know if registering a second card attached to the same account actually would work? They credit your account so I would think they wouldn’t credit the same account twice.

    It let me register both cards, so I am going to try it this year. There really isn’t a great customer service for this deal.
