American Express for the past several years has had a shop small business promotion on Black Friday where you could spend a certain amount at designated small businesses and they would give you statement credit.
Well this August they are having a similar promotion at select cities. The cities include Houston, Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Philadelphia, and Sacremento.
The promotion is that you must register you American Express credit card between Aug 1-31, spend at least $5 at designated small businesses between Aug 1-31, and get a $5 statement credit up to 3x per card.
Registration is limited so make sure to do this asap. Authorized users can also register for this promotion so the more cards the better. The statement credit will be posted 90 days after Aug 31, 2014 and the credit may be reversed if purchase is returned or canceled.
In Houston there are thousands of service, restaurant, and shopping stores I could visit. If they offer gift cards at a particular place then this would be a good idea to get to maximize the promotion.
FYI I tried registering my Blue Bird card and got a message that it is not eligible for the promotion.
DOH! No Portland
Tell me please where to go in New York at Saturday?
Go to Chopan Kebab on Main St in Flushing….hop on the #7 and get off at Main. St..walk down a few blocks near the Queens Bot. Gardens. and you are there!
What if you don’t get credit for a qualifying purchase? Is there a number to call to do this? Calling up Serve Customer service is useless as their representatives are totally clueless.
I’m not aware of a specific number. Perhaps ask to speak to a supervisor when you call the # on the back of your card.
