As we posted here this morning, today was the big Small Business Saturday shopping extravaganza. Here’s how it went down for us!
Mrs. Weekly Flyer and I made a date of it this afternoon, having grandma over to watch the little ones so that we could really focus on the “job” at hand. We had a great time and scored some awesome stuff and a lot of American Express credits. If you didn’t get in on the fun this year, be sure to stack yourself up with American Express cards next year so that you can participate!
Breakdown of cards was: 8 qualifying cards between the 2 of us x 3 credits each card = 24 credits or $240 in credits!
Our strategy was to stick as close to $10-$12 per transaction as possible to maximize on value.
Small Business Saturday Success
- 4 small gifts for holiday giving (2 candles and 2 ceramic bowls)
- 6 small bottles of liquor – some for ourselves and some to bring to holiday gatherings
- 2 six-packs of beer
- 3 bottles of wine
- pack of firewood – Ace Hardware
- large pack of batteries – Ace Hardware
- grill brush – Ace Hardware
- 2 bags of lawn fertilizer – Ace Hardware
- 2 lunches
- 2 orders of dinner to go
When we got home, we already had our emails confirming our credits!
This was seriously so much fun and what a great benefit from being an American Express card holder! We scored $240 in credits today for great things that we can use and gift for the holidays! Honestly, I can’t wait to do it again next year!
