The last 5 years, AMEX has offered statement credits for AMEX cardholders who shop on Small Business Saturday. But AMEX confirmed they will NOT have statement credits on Small Business Saturday this year, November 28, 2015.
I’ll share the details!
What’s Going On?
Small Business Saturday began as a way to support local businesses on the day following Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year. This year, Small Business Saturday is November 28, 2015.
In previous years, AMEX has offered cardholders $25 statement credits, or even $30 back as 3 individual $10 statement credits. So I was excited when I heard Small Business Saturday would return this year.
This year we are not offering a statement credit offer for Card Members on Small Business Saturday, but are instead increasing the support and resources we provide to help small business owners market the day within their communities and truly make it their own.
However, AMEX will continue to promote local businesses, by offering advertising, marketing materials, and event guides.
Great deals are always available for a limited time, so enjoy them while they last! And be on the lookout for the next deal!

AMEX cardmembers can save money with:

This is disappointing because they’ve offered the perk for the past 5 years. But it’s also a reminder to take advantage of great deals while they last!
