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.

Wow. So how many people here are going to be crying like babies if their square payments don't get credited?

I guess I'm being a hypocrite, as I always rape a deal, but you guys are really that lazy to go support a small business for something you use on a regular basis? I guess I'd say go for it, but if you're going to be a pansy and nervously come here to post every 5 minutes that you didn't get a confirmation when you clearly aren't following the "rules", buck up, you shouldn't be doing a deal your nerves can't handle.

It's official I'm telling you all to go square yourself.

Not sure who the idiot was, but who is the idiot for blindly following what another idiot suggested?

...And the crying begins...

Square payments DEFINITELY work. I spoke to a friend of mine that works for American Express, as I wanted to do this and he stated that it WILL work, however it could take 24-48 hours for the confirmation to come, and he also stated that you should charge $30, instead of just $25. I have no idea why $30 would make a difference over $25, but wanted to report that the Square payments work, you just need to be patient and have faith.

Once you are registered, you have all day as long as the transaction posts today.

Just registered both of my AMEX cards and was about to head out to a local hobby shop. Thought I'd check the "where to shop" map first. The hobby shop shows up on that map, but not on the "square directory" map and the fine print says that if it's not on the square directory map, then it's not eligible for the $25 credit. This is my first time using this promo, so am I missing something?

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.

It needs to show up on the AMEX map OR the square directory map.

If you're spending $1000+, $25 is not going to make or break the purchase I hope. hahahah
