In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses with their most pressing need: getting more customers.
The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This single day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before.
This year, the big day is Nov 29. Since Scoop loves to support small independent businesses, this promotion is right up our alley!
Plus, if you are an American Express card member, they reward you for shopping small. You just have to register in advance and you can earn $10 back on a $10 item you purchase up to three times!
So, if you buy a splurge ornament at one store that costs $12.00, you get a credit of $10.00 on your next statement. If you have multiple American Express cards, you can register them all! For their specific details and requirements, click here.
Scoop Tip: Register soon as it is limited.
You can follow Small Business Saturday on Facebook too.
To find stores near you that are participating, click here and insert the store’s name or zip code. We have the Scoop from a few local OTP stores on their specials and deals.
