No Amex credit for small business

It was a boost for the Lakewood economy,perhaps stores can offer other promotions. As announced back in September this year Amex will not give any statement credit for shopping at small business Saturday, Nov 28. Previously many local stores and organizations participated, and it was a win win for both consumers and retailers. People took care of all the chanuka presents and than some. Amex cardholders who shopped with independent small businesses in 2012 received a $25 statement credit for spending $25 at a small business. In 2013, it offered a $10 credit. Last year Amex offered a $10 statement credit that could be redeemed up to three times. Although Amex has abandoned the statement credit
for this year’s Small Business Saturday, Money reports that Amex is offering a separate promotion called “Shop Small in November,” which offers a $10 statement credit to its cardholding customers who spend $10 at a small business any time during the month. “But this time it’s being offered only to certain customers, and the offer is not being widely advertised,” according to Money.


  1. It's a 'targeted' promotion & most people in 08701 were EXCLUDED.

  2. Highly improbable. I got it as did other people who live here
