American Express is running a variation on its Small Business Saturday during the month of August called Shop Small August Card Member Offer.

Amex Shop Small

The Shop Small promotion is for a $5 statement credit when you spend $5 at a participating small business in one of these five cities:

  • Houston
  • Miami-Ft. Lauderdale
  • Sacramento
  • Philadelphia
  • Minneapolis-St. Paul

Per American Express, between Aug 1 and Aug 31, 2014, American Express is offering Card Members the opportunity to get a $5 statement credit when they register any eligible American Express Card and then use it to spend $5 or more in an in-store transaction at a qualifying American Express Card accepting small merchant listed on our Shop Small August Offer Directory.

The promotion is good for the primary card-holder and any authorized users of the card. What makes this deal even better is that you can redeem the offer three times per card.

Registration is here and opens up on August 1, 2014. Registration is limited, so I am going to be sure to register early.

Bottom Line

This is a great benefit to American Express card holders living in one of the 5 cities. But even if you don’t live there, or be lucky enough to visit during the month of August, American Express announced that it’s Small Business Saturday will take place on November 29, 2014, the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Last year Small Business Saturday gave you a $10 statement credit on a $10 purchase, however, the specifics of the 2014 promotion haven’t been released yet.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this offer?
