It’s Back – Earn $30 in Statement Credit With American Express Small Business Saturday

Our site may contain affiliate links. Read Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

One of my favorite promotions comes from American Express. It’s called Small Business Saturday and it’s back on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, making it Saturday November 29, 2014.  This is the fifth year in a row that American Express is encouraging cardholders to ‘Shop Small’ and make purchases from small businesses in their community.

The idea is simple.  Register every American Express Card you have – personal and business – both primary and additional cards. Cards like:

Note that “Corporate Cards and all prepaid Card products cards” are NOT eligible, but in a twist for 2014 even Bluebird and American Express Serve cards count this year, per the terms and conditions.

Registration begins Sunday, November 16 at 12:00 AM Mountain Standard Time. American Express says registration is limited, so it’s best to enroll early.

Bottom Line

We will be sure to remind you when the registration link goes live. In the meantime, get your cards lined up – I have four American Express Cards with authorized users, and a Bluebird by American Express & Walmart as well. With lots of  small business shopping on November 29, 2014 I could be looking at a couple hundred dollars in statement credit from American Express.

  1. Don’t authorized users have the same credit card/account number as the primary user? How does that work in getting multiple statement credits?

  2. My American Express authorized users have a different card numbers printed on their cards, and when they make purchases I can log into American Express there is a separate Card Member field to sort by user.

    My Chase authorized users and I share the same card number printed on the card and logging in to my Chase account just shows all of the purchases together, and not sorted by user.

    I’m quite certain the two credit card companies handle it differently, and I recall my authorized user getting Small Business Saturday statement credits last year.

    Hope this helps!
