Small Business Saturday is only one month away, and some fun and easy deals are rolling out to Amex cardholders.

A new Amex Offer will give you a $10 credit at participating small restaurants. This offer is far more generous than it sounds and each account can receive significantly more than $10 in credit. I’ll explain.

Small Business Saturday dining credit from Amex

Think of it as a free appetizer from Amex.

You’ll receive a one-time $10 statement credit when you spend $10 at participating small businesses with your eligible Amex card. That’s a remarkably small spending requirement. Here are the caveats:

  • You must enroll your eligible Amex card by adding this offer to your card (you’ll find Amex Offers near the bottom of your online account page)
  • You must spend $10 in a single transaction
  • Offer is triggered only when using your card at a business within the “Shop Small” or “Dining” Amex categories
  • This offer is valid between Nov. 1 and Nov. 30, 2019

Remember, Amex Offers are targeted, and enrollment is limited. In other words, the offer won’t be available after a certain number of cardmembers register. If you think you’ll use this offer, best to add it to your card quickly. You’ll find this offer on many of the best American Express cards, like The Platinum Card® from American Express, the American Express® Gold Card, or the recently refreshed American Express®️ Green Card.

While it is only valid once per member, each account can earn this credit more than once, if you’ve got authorized users on your eligible card. Each authorized user can also add this offer and score a $10 credit at participating restaurants. The lot of you can head out and receive a free round of drinks with this deal.

You can subscribe to our newsletter for more updates on upcoming Small Business Saturday deals. We’ll always tell you when we find a sweet Amex Offer, related or not to Small Business Saturday.

I tried to give the link at it was stripped out. Let’s try

americanexpress.com/

dine-small-online

Yes Colin, sorry for the cynicism, but I figured the author (J Hostetler) could at least show a link. I am not sure why he did not.

I called twice and no one at Amex could verify this, but you and one other person here got it so I assume it is legitimate.

I think you’re being a little presumptuous calling this offer “bogus” just because you don’t have it. I personally received this offer on my Hilton Honors Surpass card. The link for participating restaurants is at .

Thanks Colin for confirming you have this offer.

I’m almost never targeted for these either, but from looking at what others have reported in online forums, I figured they must be real and I probably just didn’t meet whatever criteria they had in mind.

Just got off the phone with Amex again. No deal to be found.

Andrew, can you post a screenshot of the deal? I am willing to bet you cannot.

Hi Eric! This deal is targeted so not everyone is going to have it as an offer on their card. I’ve done a search on Google and found others have reported it does exist.

If I had to guess, I think the Amex rep you spoke with may have simply been saying no deal is to be found on your accounts because you weren’t targeted for this deal.

Who is Joe? The author.

Does he not post here?

This offer is on my gold card.

Hooray! Congrats on getting the targeted offer 🙂

This is entirely bogus. Amex does not have a current offer. Even at shopsmall.com there is nothing.

I just got off the phone with Amex and they have verified it.
