Your business could be featured in personalised emails we send to our Card Members, and on our American Express Map®2, making it easy for Card Members to find you. Card Members can also be eligible to receive credits for spending at your business, at no extra cost to you.

We know attracting customers is important to you all year round. That’s why we promote small businesses to our Card Members throughout the year, not just during a Shop Small campaign. Just one of the many ways we’ve got your back.
