Tomorrow, Saturday 7th, is the UK’s first ‘Small Business Saturday’. And, as American Express is the main sponsor, this is a great opportunity to rack up some decent discounts with your cards.
You will receive £5 cashback on your American Express statement for every £10+ purchase you make at a participating small business on Saturday.
The rules are simple:
You can receive cashback from an unlimited number of shops ….
… but only once per shop per card
You need to register your American Express card in advance
Supplementary cards can be registered separately and count as a ‘different’ card
All UK issued Amex cards, whether Amex, Lloyds or MBNA issued, can be registered
The website to register your cards is here (scroll down for the link).
At first glance, the list in my area seems smaller than the last Amex ‘Shop Small’ promotion. What I don’t know is if retailers with an Amex ‘Shop Small’ sticker in their window, but who are not on this list, will count or not.
Remember that a) many retailers will be happy for you to split a purchase over a number of Amex cards and b) if a store sells gift vouchers, it may be worth buying a number of £10 ones for future use, even if you don’t want a specific product on the day.
