During the year long campaign, Card Members who first save the Shop Small offer to their eligible Card, will get 3 extra points per dollar they spend at your and other Shop Small participating businesses. Card Members can earn up to 40,000 extra points until 31 March 2022.5


Your business could be featured in personalised emails we send to our Card Members, and on our American Express Map3, making it easy for Card Members to find you. You’ll also be eligible for complimentary Shop Small branded signage to help make your customers aware of the campaign and offer.
