Who remembers Amex’s Shop Small offers from 2020? These offers gave cardholders $5 back on purchases at small businesses that accept American Express cards. Well, Amex is back at it again — though a little less generously — with its newest offer. Let’s take a look at the details.
Shop Small Amex Offer Details
This offer appears to be targeted, so you’ll want to check your Amex Offers page or your email to see if you’re eligible. Upon eligibility, these do require enrollment through your American Express account. In order to do so, log into your account and scroll down to the Amex Offers tab. You can also find these via the Amex App.
Here are the details:
- Receive a $5 statement credit on a purchase of at least $10 at eligible Shop Small businesses
- Save a maximum of $10 in 2 transactions
- The offer is valid through August 22, 2021
- The offer must be used at a Shop Small retail location or via a Shop Small online business
There are hundreds of different stores available with this offer, so if you’re targeted, it’s an easy way to save up to $10.
We found tons of restaurants as well, which is good news for American Express® Gold Card holders who see the offer on their card. Amex Gold cards earn 4x points at restaurants, which stacks nicely with this offer.
Hot Tip: Even if you’re not using your Amex Gold card, you’re still earning Membership Rewards points on your purchase. Maximizing your points is always a good idea, even if you’re not earning a ton with your spending.
Shop Small at the American Express Pinterest Shop
We’ve already pointed out the retail locations and online businesses where you can use these offers, but Amex has 1 final location where you can apply this offer. Recently launched, the Shop Small Summer Pinterest Shop is a collaboration between Amex and Pinterest that is dedicated to supporting independent businesses. You’ll find all sorts of goods online, all of which are eligible for use with your Amex Offer.
Amex Offers From Specific Shop Small Businesses
Finally, even if you’re not targeted for the Amex Offer of up to 2 $5 statement credits when you make a $10 minimum purchase with any Shop Small vendor, you may still be eligible for a number of different Shop Small offers with your card.
These offers won’t show up on your regular Amex Offers page. Instead, you’ll need to visit this hub and log into your account. Here, you’ll find a variety of different Shop Small offers from small businesses.
The offer of up to $10 back when you Shop Small is not especially huge, but money is still money and there are tons of great opportunities to take advantage of this offer while also supporting small businesses. See if you’re targeted by checking your email or online account.
