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.

So it appears Online is not allowed this year. I was wondering how to use some of my AU cards without dragging the AU out with me on Saturday.
Pay at pump will work for some of the AU's.

Restaurant would split bills without checking ID. Many other places may not check ID, but I want to use a bunch at one time, such as at Kwik Trip or Ace. I wonder if either of these would allow me to use several cards with different names to buy gift cards. I think that would be an issue for them. Maybe the local Ace manager would be OK to buy a big item from him either through gift cards or split transaction. I have spoken with him a few times over the years.

Gas gift card would seem to be the best use for value. Kwik Trip sells gift cards online. I wonder how stringent Amex will be on the Online stipulation.

Right, but so does their machine after having to swipe 16 cards. laugh out loud

Can you register a Square or PayPal Here account for your eBay account as a 'Small Business'? Scratchchin

There are some merchants that have both storefronts and an online business and are a Square business. Ritual Roasters(coffee) comes to mind. I may buy online from them on SBS and see if I get an immediate email for my linked Amex card. If it doesn't work I'm out a $25 credit. Won't be happy but I won't whine too much.
Hmm, that may not be a bad idea. I could try ordering an online gift card from Kwik Trip. If I get an email in the next half hour or so saying it is good to go, then I could order up a bunch more with the other AU credit cards. If not, then down to the station I go and do some Pay at Pump, or see if I get by getting a bunch of gift cards using AU name, or drag the adult kids down there to buy the cards for me/them.

Isn't it an issue with online orders as well, that they may not process right away, maybe not even that day?

I am going to order up a Kwik Trip gift card right now and see if I can tell how long it takes to process.

If the authorization goes through right away it should work. It all depends on their system. Some businesses like Quill do not process right away. Some do. Even on the Twitter/FB promos the authorization triggers the email sync notification when you buy online..

Search harder. "Small Business Saturday" works, and is an obvious search. The mods don't complain because users like me send them the repost information. All they do is a single click to merge the threads.

Did you notice that the new thread screens ASKS YOU MORE THAN ONCE if you searched? Why don't we all drown ourselves in reposts, that would make this website work so well, wouldn't it.
That's your assumption, not a fact. Plus they're not complaining, so chill out. Also, you have no idea what "user experience" means. Your thought process is ass backwards. It's the search that needs to be more efficient, and not the other way around.

Thanks for the heads up. Thought about giving my wife a card, but I'm not sure I'd have the number today, thus destroying the $25 extra deal and the bad part about giving the wife a license to charge on my amex.

I have the same message for four of my Amex cards. ..Did Amex automatically enroll for me?

Just got a response from their twitter page:
"you should be set, that msg means your Card is already enrolled. You should also get an email conf shortly."

So I guess we're set! Did you get in last year as well?

If you're adding her to an existing account, the account in created within a matter of minutes. I did this recently, and the card showed up in my account momentarily. You may have to call and get the 16 digits and the CVV code from a CSR. Worth a shot for $25, no?

I think only the last 5 digits differ. So you can use the same 11 digits of the Primary Account holder, and change the 5 last digits for the new card, which anyway shows up when you login into your amex account. Thats what did last night.

Did anyone have luck with BoA Amex last year? My BoA Amex did not work last year although I received the confirmation email after my purchase.
