  2. My husband and daughter both received emails confirming their participation in Small Business Saturday; I did not (although I did the shopping on their cards); I’m hoping it’s just my email settings.

    I bought and/or paid for: 1/2 pound of coffee and a $20 GC at my favorite coffee shop; a GC at my hair salon; $25.50 for dry cleaning that I dropped off last week; a payment on my cable bill; $28 in kitchen gadgets; $25 GC at my favorite restaurant; $30 purchase at the computer store; and books. My favorite deal of the day was at my local independent bookstore that had a 20% off sale; they split my purchase so I could pay with two cards: $75 in books for a net of $10!

    If I get all the statement credits, I saved at least $200. The only purchase outside my normal spend was the kitchen gadgets.

  3. Bought a French press (travel size) to replace one that has seen better days and a few misc kitchen supplies

    Seriously considered groceries as my local Swiss Farm drive thru qualified as a small biz but opted to splurge on my tea fetish …

  4. I waited until the last minute to go out. However, I used my 2 registered cards to buy 2 $25 Visa Gift Cards at a local grocery store down the street. Next year I’ll do some better planning since there were alot of my favorite stores participating.

  5. Very disappointed. 3 local businesses that were listed on the Amex ShopSmall website as participating – all declined to take Amex cards. It was embarrassing and felt like a bait and switch.

  6. Purchased 10 $25 GC at local organic supermarket/cafe. Then went shopping and used 2 of the GC already. Nice quick & easy $250 savings.
