AMEX Small Business Saturday just went live. Here’s a brief video about what is Small Business Saturday:
As mentioned in the video. AMEX Small Business Saturday took place back in 2010 in order to help small businesses thrive. This year you have the opportunity to help those small business again and in return you can do it for almost free.
In previous years, this promotion was very lucrative. Giving $25 credit back if you made a purchase of $25 or more. However, this year the promotion has decreased to merely $10 credit back for purchases of $10 or more. Nonetheless it’s still a great offer and I would suggest you take part. If you want to take part of this offer check your AMEX cards in the “Amex Offers & Benefits” to see if your card is eligible for this offer. After adding the offer to your card. Go to the following small shops link for a participating business. Then go shop before November 28, 2015.
Here are some detailed information about the terms and condition of the offer:
