We should summarized all these info for next year.All the possible way to do this deal. If AMAX is not wise up before that. Saw a post that said he did it 28 times, not sure how.


Open a small business and become your own customer.. takes just minutes: squareup dot com (need iphone/android phone) (Hey "ashwinkumara", you are clearly a troll, so stay away instead of removing useful info from wiki)

Do not forget to check in with foursquare app, there's another $25 for that Smilie


One credit per REGISTERED card. The FB search results do NOT necessarily reflect qualifying stores....some large retailers and businesses that do not accept AMEX are among the results given.


Dead if you haven't signed up (Link [americanexpress.com]) already.

FYI, everyone. IF you've already registered your card, the confirmation email of a qualifying purchase will appear INSTANTLY as soon as your card has been swiped at a qualifying SMALL BIZ.

I just did two this morning and Congratualtions email came at exactly the same time as the time on the receipt.


I would recommend you guys to call up the merchants and ask if they will accept AMEX. I went to one restaurant that supposedly accepts AMEX (it was on the AMEX facebook page) but initially refused it until I made a fuss about it. They finally relented and accepted AMEX, but I did not receive any email confirmation. I have no idea what the merchant did to mess up the transaction or how this will affect one's eligibility for the $25 credit. It looks like I am going to have to fight this. Get screenshots of the shop on the facebook website and to be doubly sure only visit those shops!
EDIT: For some of us at least, we're getting no email confirmation when we spend at a local SB even with merchants who will gladly take AMEX...


http://www.facebook.com/SmallBusinessSaturday There is a spot on there where you can put in a zip code and it will pull up ALL the small businesses. Click the plus symbol where it says 'see where you can shop to earn your $25 statement credit'. Another spot further down lets you put in a zip code but only pulls up local businesses that have a facebook page.



From the Facebook page:
This year, Small Business Saturday will take place on November 26.
“Like” this Page to stay informed on how to get involved and
help make it bigger than ever. Shoppers will be eligible for special offers and have opportunities to show their support for local businesses in their area. American Express Cardmembers who register or link an eligible Card can receive a one-time $25 statement credit when they spend $25 or more at a small business on November 26. Cardmembers should check back in November for details.

Confirmed locations that worked during last year's promotion (feel free to add your own):
locally owned restaurants
locally owned grocery stores
locally owned liquor stores
locally owned sporting goods stores
local meat market
local tanning salon
local mechanic
local gas station (no chain)
independent book stores (I even ordered ebooks on their website)

Basically it should work at any store that has one location or only a few locations which are all in the area.

Obviously the business has to take American Express.

Then click on "Get Involved" on the left hand side.

Then click on "See where you can shop to earn your $25 statement credit"

By the way, "small" online businesses qualify, too. I am not sure how to tell which ones qualify but I know for sure that Classy Groundcovers [ClassyGroundcovers.com] qualifies (they have some sale items that end up close to free).

also www.TheBuffaloWoolCo.com has some things for pretty much half price.

Media Mega Mall http://www.mediamegamall.com is a valid small business for this AMEX deal! You can order online, I got the congrats email from AMEX right after purchase. They've got SmartBlu BDRs for 79 cents. See my post here: http://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=45219925&postcount=1116

The one-time $25 statement credit offer is no longer available. You can still do your part to support small business. Get involved, spread the word and come out on the big day to shop small and help your community

I hope what *** do they mean? I understand if fresh new registrations are there anymore. But for already registered, how can they refuse?
that could mean the 50 amex cards i signed up for to buy 50 bags of 25 pounds of BASMATI RICE at the local indian/pakistani IS failed I guess.

YMMV but Foursquare's online site has info on stores that are eligible (says they have an AmEx deal).

I guess if I hit up one of my local restaurants for dinner, I should be fine.

Is it still possible to register more cards?

I registered my card this morning, and ordered from my local chinese place for lunch. Within minutes, I got an email confirming that I'd get my statement credit within 3-5 days.

So, as long as I registered the cards, I should be ok for the credit right? (asking, since the sync website says they are out of registrations).

So my AMEX card is registered for this deal but the credit card strip is all messed up. Can most places just enter in the card number for it to go through?

has anyone that used a card that was not the primary card on an account (authorized user with different card number) gotten an email that confirms they will get the credit (after making the purchase with the card that you previously registered)?
