Register Now & Amex Small Business Saturday 2013 Tips

Amex Small Business Saturday

Starting November 24, 2013 you can register for Amex Small Business Saturday and earn $10 free by simply spending $10 or more at a small business and paying with your American Express credit card. After making a purchase on Saturday, November 30, 2013 you will receive $10 by statement credit within about 2-3 days later. American Express says it could take 90 days, but usually it only takes a few days.

Register here for the promotion. Registration ends on November 30th.

This is a very easy way to get $10 free, or much more if you have multiple American Express cards. Last year I registered four of  my Amex cards and received a total of $100 by making purchases on all four cards (last year the bonus was $25). Even cards where you have added a registered user are eligible.

Which American Express Credit Cards Qualify for Small Business Saturday?

Unfortunately not all types of Amex cards are eligible. Cards issued directly by American Express will likely qualify, and so do those issued by partner banks like Bank of America. My Citi AAdvantage Amex worked.  The Amex Platinum Card qualifies, and so does the Starwood Amex, Hilton Amex Card, and Blue Cards.  What about Blue Bird and Serve? Unfortunately, those cards do not qualify. I attempted to register my Blue Bird card and was told it was not eligible.

Amex Small Business Saturday Tips

  • Make sure you register all of your Amex cards immediately
  • Set a calendar alert for November 30th, the day that purchases qualify
  • Use the Amex Search Tool to find eligible businesses
  • Make sure your purchases is $10 or more (a $5 purchase does not qualify)
  • Consider buying a gift card if there is nothing you immediately need or want
  • Check your statement after a few days and email Amex if you do not receive your $10 statement credit

Bottom Line

This is one of the easiest and most reliable deals of the year. Unfortunately it is only $10 this year as opposed to $25 in years past. Still, it’s a great way to earn some free cash and help small business owners.
