I just registered my American Express credit cards for the Small Business Saturday promotion offered by American Express. This year, American Express is promoting small businesses in your local area by giving you a $25 statement when you spend at least $25 in a single transaction at your local small business using your registered American Express credit card. My wife and I have 7 American Express credit cards and I just registered all of our cards for this promotion. That’s free $175! WOOT!
I registered the following cards:
- Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express
- Starwood Preferred Guest Business
- Starwood Preferred Guest Business – Authorized User
- Hilton Honors
- Hilton Honors – Authorized User
- Virgin Atlantic
- Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express
What To Do:
- Gather all your American Express credit cards. This includes your cards issued by American Express, American Express cards offered by Bank of America, and American Express card offered by Citibank. Prepaid, Debit, and Gift Cards unfortunately do not qualify. Each authorized user cards qualify as well if they are offered by American Express bank.
- Go to https://www.americanexpress.com/us/small-business/Shop-Small/ and register all your American Express credit cards by November 24, 2012. The website indicate that there are limited number of cards they are allowing for the promotion so the sooner you register, the better.
- Wait until Saturday, November 24 and use your registered American Express credit cards and shop at your local small businesses. Make sure you spend at least $25 for each transaction. This offer is good only for ONE day on Saturday November 24, 2012.
- Wait 6-8 weeks before the statement credit is posted on your account. Last year, people have reported that they received the funds in as little as 3-5 days so hopefully it won’t take 8 weeks for the monies to post.
After registering my cards, I received the following email confirmation:
