The American Express Shop Small promotion is back and it’s better than ever. From now until September 13, 2020, American Express cardholders will earn $5 when they spend $10 at small businesses. Best of all, this promotion is available 10 times so you can earn a total of $50 in statement credits. Essentially, all eligible consumer and small business cardmembers get getting 50% off.
Some people complain that American Express isn’t accepted everywhere, but I’ve found more and more retailers now accept Amex. I personally think this is great since the American Express Platinum Card is my main credit card.
To find out which retailers are taking part in the promotion, check out the American Express Shop Small map. Although this deal is literally called shop small, there are some bigger merchants (select locations) where you can get the credit including:
- Blaze Pizza
- Mamma’s Pizza
- Bar Burrito
- Chotto Matte
- Jimmy the Greek
Even though you can take advantage of this promo has some well-known retailers, I encourage you to shop small. It’s been an incredible difficult time for small business owners so every dollar helps American Express even conducted a Small Business Recovery Research Report and found the following.
- 73% of business owners are ready to take on the challenge of rebuilding, but are deeply concerned about the future
- 49% of business owners say that every day is a fight to keep their business alive
- 30% are uncertain about their ability to re-hire
- 53% are nervous about making it through 2021
- 51% of small businesses need a sharp recovery to remain viable
As you can see, it’s never been a better time to help small businesses by spending your money. Note that the $5 credit is only available once per location, so spread the wealth!
