American Express is offering the first 100,000 people who register here a $25 statement credit if they spend at least $25 at a small business the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 27th.
Here’s how AMEX defines a small business:
Eligible merchants include any independently owned small businesses that accept the American Express Card. Purchases made online, at large, national chains, at franchised business locations and at government agencies are not eligible. Prepaid, corporate cards and ExpressPay transactions are not eligible.
Some have reported difficulty signing up, but I had no trouble registering my Delta AMEX and neither did any of my family members. The T&Cs seem to indicate that any AMEX card is eligible, though each person can only register one card.
