Thread Details

Heads Up: I got an email from Amex directed to small businesses saying that they will again be having SBS on Nov 24, 2012.

Information is limited for now, but here are the highlights:

$25.00 statement credit

"We are helping customers find you by placing all American Express small merchants on an online map so they can shop small at your business."
The map feature sounds like it will eliminate confusion over what businesses qualify for the offer. I'm not sure if they've had that in the past or not.

This has been posted in hot deals in past years, so that's where I put it again.

I only swiped an AU on Square to see if I got a confirmation email or not, and I did. I did this around 9am EST and got it shortly after. Now it looks like the delay between purchase and email is a lot longer since Im sure people are waking up, going out shopping, etc.

I just wanted to make sure I got an AU confirmation before spending $1,000+ at my local small business. I just got back from the store (it took them a while to swipe all my cards) and I have not received any confirmations yet. I think it is going to be slow now that everyone is out shopping. It was similar last year.


I <3 SBS.
OK, that is encouraging. But I am getting very mixed results.
4 $25 gift cards with AU bought inside KwikTrip at 8:30 AM CDT, no email 2 hours later.
2 $25 gift cards bought in single transaction at Ace spread across two cards, one AU and one Account Owner. These two emails came through in 17 minutes.
Tried again at Ace with one AU for a purchase 10 minutes later. Have not received an email for that one now over an hour later.

Stopped at small gas station, did $25 on different Account Owner card and another $25 on an AU card. Both at the pump. No email from these half hour later.

Like you, I want to make a large purchase using several AU cards, but I want to make sure they work! As it is now, I am not sure at all. Maybe only one AU works? The only ones that have worked for me so far are the single transaction spread across two cards at Ace.
Waiting to see what happens before I go back to buy my SnowBlower.

My charges are pending atm ... not to worried. I think last year it was the same type of talk/commotion? In the early morning their servers are not hammered with everyone shopping small. It will eventually catch up.... we hope! Smilie

My dad went to the same store I did and checked out/got rung up first. He got all his confirmation emails (purchase wasnt huge but $150+ across that many cards/AUs).

I went next ... and havent got anything yet. Again, only time will tell. Last year it worked fine. Hopefully this year also Smilie

was it an ACE gift card or did they sell others?
No. It was their gift card. I need to buy a few items below $30 with their 50% off coupon. Since the final cost will be $15 or less, it would not eligible for the SSB offer. But I can buy their gift card and then use it on multiple orders with 50% off each today. Cool

What he means is he's got x amount of different AMEX cards, so each one is being swiped for $25.

In one way I hate people like this, but in another way, at least a small business is getting the money and he's not screwing them over.
