Shop Small

Small businesses deserve to be celebrated.

Through Shop Small®, the Amex community comes together to support the everyday small businesses we can't live without.


Whether you're a Merchant or a Cardmember, select one of the options below to make the most of Shop Small - this summer and all year long.

This summer, eligible American Express® Cardmembers can enjoy an offer designed to give a big boost to local shops.

Shop Small Offer

Register your eligible American Express Card and make a qualifying purchase of at least $10 (after taxes) in a single transaction using your registered Card between June 29 and August 24, 2022, and you could be eligible to earn a $5 statement credit at each of up to 5 different participating small business locations or online businesses in Canada.


Only the first 100,000 cards to be successfully registered are eligible for the offer. Purchases made during the offer period prior to registration of your eligible Card are not eligible purchases. Other terms and conditions apply.1


If you are an eligible Cardmember, these are the ways you can earn a statement credit for the Shop Small offer:


1. At eligible businesses in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Ottawa, and Calgary. Find in-store participating locations at Amex Maps.

2. At eligible participating online businesses in Canada. Find a selection of eligible businesses at the Online Directory.


Using the two links above, look for eligible businesses that appear with both a Shop Small icon Shop Small and a Shop Small Offer Eligible icon Shop Small Offer Eligible.


Register your eligible Card by logging in to your Online Services account or the Amex App. Once logged in, go to the ‘Amex Offers’ section to see the offer and simply click ‘Register your Card’ between June 29 – August 24, 2022. If you do not see the offer listed, it means the enrollment cap has already been reached.
