American Express may not be the first name you think of historically when it comes to small businesses, but they have been rocking the Small Business promos the last couple of years. Of course there was Small Business Saturday over the weekend where you got up to $30 in statement credits from making eligible small business purchases on each registered credit card, but now there is a new promo that will award 2x Membership Reward points on purchases at Small Businesses through January 31, 2015.
Via the email that I got, The Amex EveryDaySM Credit Card and The Amex EveryDaySM Preferred Credit Card are both eligible for the 2x promo, but it is possible there are other versions of the promo out there that I just didn’t receive. You can head here to try and register for the 2x points promo. The 2x points will be paid at small businesses that appear on the Small Business map.
Do note the terms and conditions below related to the 20% and 50% bonus the EveryDay cards payout, as well as the language around grocery stores and gas stations.
The additional points awarded under this 2x Shop Small® offer will not be included when we calculate the 20% and 50% extra points benefit for Amex EveryDay Card products. For each dollar of purchases made during the Promotional Period at US Supermarkets that are also qualifying small business locations, enrolled Card Members will earn 1 additional Membership Reward point for each dollar of eligible purchases (for a total of 3 points for Amex EveryDay Cards, and 4 points for Amex EveryDay Preferred Cards). Purchases made at US gas stations do not qualify for additional points for this offer regardless of whether they appear on the Shop Small® Map.
I love small businesses and extra points, so I think this is a great promo!
