I wrote earlier about the very lucrative American Express offer where you could get a $25 statement credit for registering your American Express card and then making a purchase of $75 or more at Amazon.com.
This was a great deal and didn’t last long because registration is now closed for that offer.
However, if you registered your American Express cards, you have up to December 31, 2013 to complete your $75 purchase. And remember that you can always buy Amazon.com gift cards (our affiliate link), load them to your account and use them whenever you want because they don’t expire!
The $25 statement credits posted to our accounts within a day!
The statement credits have also posted on our Citi American Airlines American Express credit cards as well!
Small Business Saturday 2013
And on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Emily and I went shopping with our dads. We had 9 American Express cards between us so we went to different small businesses to get the $10 statement credit.
We had lunch at our favorite greek restaurant in Toledo and then stopped to pick up 2 bottles of wine.
We then we stopped at an antique store which was also selling Christmas decorations.
And then visited another store which even had the Small Business Saturday doormat to welcome shoppers!
Another shop had a sale on locally made soap, so Emily stocked up on some soap for gifts.
Looks like all that shopping wore our dads out!
We got a $10 statement credit on all our cards and spent a wonderful day with our families!
