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.

AMEX Will Support Small Businesses in Other Ways, and You Can Still Save Money With AMEX Cards

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.

But now AMEX says:
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.

Bottom Line

AMEX confirmed they will NOT offer statement credits to cardmembers who shop on Small Business Saturday, November 28, 2015, this year.

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!
