American Express has announced the date for the next Small Business Saturday promotion. It will be on November 24, 2012.
Small Business Saturday requires that you register your American Express card(s) ahead of time and then shop at a small business on November 24th and spend at least $25. You will then receive a statement credit in a couple of days.
You can receive this $25 credit for every card holder on an account. The list of participating merchants can be found on the Small Business Saturday Facebook page.
Make sure that you are prepared on the day that registration opens as there is a limit to the total amount of total users that can take part in the promotion.
Here is a write up of our 2011 experience with Small Business Saturday.
