Oh Amex. What did I do before I had you? I’m not sure it’s healthy for me to love my credit card as much as I do, but it really has saved me lots of money.
I’ve written before about how American Express is one of my “Amazing Savings“, and as long as you manage the credit card well by paying it off in full each month there are some brilliant offers.
American Express Shop Small 2015
The latest bonus for having one is the Shop Small offer. From this Saturday (5th December) until Sunday 20th, you can get £5 credit each time you spend £10 at participating small businesses.
From gift shops and hairdressers to restaurants and bars, there are thousands of shops taking part. It’s all about encouraging us to spend at small retailers, which is no bad thing – as long as you can afford it!
You need to register your American Express card at the site below, where you can also enter your postcode to see what shops nearby are part of the promotion.
You can only get the credit once at each shop, but you can get it at as many shops as you like.
