SHOP SMALL AUGUST CARD MEMBER OFFER
TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Limit three (3) statement credits per American Express® Card. To be eligible, Card Members must register any eligible American Express Card for this offer at americanexpress.com/ShopSmallAugust. Corporate Cards and all prepaid Card products (other than American Express Serve®) are not eligible.
The number of registrations is limited. Registration opens at 12:00 A.M. MST (Mountain Standard Time) on Aug 1, 2014, and will continue until 11:59 P.M. MST on Aug 31, 2014, unless the registration limit is reached sooner.
To receive the $5 statement credit up to three times total (once per eligible transaction), the Card Member must use his or her registered Card to spend $5 or more in a single, in-store transaction at a qualifying small business location listed in the Shop Small August Offer Directory during Aug 2014. To receive the credit, the transaction must equal $5 or more (for example, if the transaction is only for $4, the Card Member will not receive a credit). Multiple transactions of less than $5 will not qualify even if the combined total of those transactions is over $5. Card Member may purchase multiple items that together equal $5 or more, but they must be purchased in a single transaction to receive the statement credit. Online transactions do not qualify.
Qualifying small business locations will appear in the Shop Small August Offer Directory, available beginning on Aug 1. (Please note that business location information provided on the directory may contain inaccuracies or errors, including as a result of information provided by third parties.) Transactions with political campaigns or political action committees are not eligible, regardless of whether they appear in the offer directory.
If American Express does not receive information that identifies a transaction as qualifying for the offer, the transaction will not qualify for the statement credit. For example, a transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, a statement credit will not be received if a transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party, or if the merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader to process it.
Statement credit(s) will appear on the Card Member's billing statement within 90 days after Aug 31, 2014, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about the qualifying purchase. Note that American Express may not receive information that identifies the transaction as a qualifying transaction if the items from the purchase are not all provided during the offer period. For example, if a Card Member purchases an item that is not available or is provided after Aug 31, 2014, that transaction will not count toward determining whether the purchase qualifies for the offer.
Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase is returned or cancelled.
The Card Registration Terms and Conditions will also apply at enrollment.

Merchants of those 5 cities, get yourselves websites, and offer lots of stuff for $5.

Online purchases worked for this before even though it said in-store only, and a bunch of store owners from Provincetown, Raleigh, and other cities got flooded with orders and inquiries from loads of Amexers.

I still remember the fudge shop in Provincetown that got floored with out of state orders, and Larry's Coffee in Raleigh that sold shitloads of gift cards that were probably never redeemed. (I still got mine in an email folder somewhere).

I'll use it eventually. It was just funny seeing people scrambling to find merchants with websites in certain cities, and then ordering all kinds of stuff that was basically free.

One was a Japanese products store in Chicago I think, and there were loads of people buying all these little trinkets and notepads and ridiculous shit. I ended up getting like $500 worth of tea, coffee gift cards, fudge, Japanese trinkets, spices, toys, and other stuff that I never would have bought but for Amex.

This one will be a lot harder since its only $5 but I'm sure there will be opportunities to exploit just like last time.

Says once per transaction, so can't spend $15 at once and get 3 credits. Has to be 3 separate transactions for $5 each.

Here's the challenge: find merchants that sell e-gift cards in the amount of $5 in those cities. The reality is that 95% of the people that register for this are not going to live in those cities and won't be traveling to them to use this either.

This is a separate deal. Small Business Saturday is usually in November or December and is nationwide. This is in addition to that, and just targeted to these 5 cities.
