Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday is the Saturday after Thanksgiving and it sits between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year, it falls on November 24th.

It began in 2010 when American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help small businesses get more exposure during one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year. Last year, over 100 million people came out to shop at independently-owned small businesses on the day. Now, in its third year, Small Business Saturday will be even bigger. American Express is offering free and easy-to-use tools to help small businesses get the most out of the day and tools for consumers to show their support.

Small Business Saturday is a day for everyone — from the business owners who create jobs to the customers who buy locally — to support small businesses that invigorate the economy and keep communities thriving. If you own a small business , you are automatically part of the day. Small Business Saturday is the day when the community comes together to show its support for you, the small business owner, and to give you exposure during the holiday shopping season.

As a consumer, you are a key part in helping small businesses thrive by shopping or dining at a small business this November 24th. You could be helping local entrepreneurs offer more jobs, which in turn invigorate the economy. This year, go out and support your favorite small business and search for savings on unique merchandise while experiencing spectacular service – a cornerstone of many small businesses.

For the third year in a row, American Express is offering Cardmembers the opportunity to get a $25 statement credit when they enroll their eligible American Express® card and then use it to spend $25 or more in a single in-store transaction at a qualifying small business location on Small Business Saturday.
