Small Business Saturday, the easiest way to “make” $25, is back for it’s second year. Smack in between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday was American Express’s promotion in which you could get a $25 statement credit if you spent at least that much at a “small business” that day. There are various other business focused promotions associated with it, like $100 in free Facebook ads, but for consumers, the $25 is one of the easiest ways to benefit from having an American Express card.
To take advantage, you’ll need to register at the Small Business Saturday website once registration opens on November 1st. Last year, the promotion was limited to the first 100,000 to pre-register their card so you’ll want to act quickly. I’ll try to get a reminder out before the 1st.
