We Support Small Business Saturday – November 26, 2011

November 26, 2011 by · 1 Comment 

SBS_EPOP_BadgeThe 2nd annual Small Business Saturday® is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year.

On November 26, we’re asking millions of people to Shop Small at their favorite local stores and help fuel the economy. When we shop small, it will be huge. Pledge your support for Small Business Saturday®.

You can receive a one-time $25 statement credit when you register any eligible American Express® Card and use that Card to make a purchase of $25 or more at a small business on November 26, 2011. To be eligible, you must register your American Express® Card.


Don’t have an American Express card? That’s OK! You will still benefit from shopping at an independently owned store by knowing that you are supporting your local community.

When our small businesses are thriving and growing, we are able to attract more consumers and new small businesses to our community. The growth of multiple small businesses can allow the community benefits such as lower property taxes, higher home values, and more maintained streets.

All of us are always looking for the best use from our money and it is next to impossible to not shop at the big box stores and eat at the chain restaurants. While we can still pick up deals and savings, we can help do our part to grow the local economy by visiting stores owned by members of our community.

I urge each of you to find a locally owned business over this holiday season to help our local economy grow!

You can do it. Share your favorite local small businesses and don’t keep them or I  a secret. Happy Shopping.

  1. My son got to enjoy Small Business Saturday by spending his $25 towards art projects at the Painted Penguin in Westfield Shoppingtown. I could get use to $25 AMEX credits every weekend.
