As I blogged last week, American Express’s Small Business Saturday will be better then last year with each registered American Express Card eligible for up to $30 in statement credits vs. only $10 last year!

You might think it sounds funny that I am so excited for Small Business Saturday but, with the number of American Express cards that we have as a family, we are looking at being able to cash in on some serious statement credits!

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

I’m Psyched And Ready For Small Business Saturday

1.) Looking at how many cards I have that will be eligible for the promotion. New for this year, American Express Bluebird and Serve cards are eligible. Mrs. WeeklyFlyer doesn’t have a Bluebird account yet, so this is one area we can add a card to get another $30 in credits.

2.) Accessing if I or Mrs. WeeklyFlyer need to apply for more cards. Are there any offers that I was thinking about taking advantage of anyway and apply for them now so that I will have the card for Small Business Saturday. This way I can take advantage of the additional $30 in credits.

3.) Adding authorized users to my American Express cards that don’t have a fee to do so. Authorized user cards with unique card numbers have always been eligible for their own statement credits on Small Business Saturday so, I am making sure that we can cash in a little bigger by adding Mrs. WeeklyFlyer to some of my cards. I don’t have many cards that will work for this plan because they charge a fee to add an authorized user but, something to consider if you do.

How To Register

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

I have 5 cards that should be eligible this year which is equal to $150 in statement credits! Not too shabby!

  1. Only 5? I’m sure plenty of others beat this but I’ve got 4 Amex accts, 3 auth users, fidelity Amex, and 4 bluebirds. $360 coming my way! May add some AUs on other cards too.
