Shop Small celebrates the small businesses who do big things for their communities every day

Don't live life without it.

Each year, our Cardmembers are rewarded for using their Card on local high streets up and down the country.  Shop Small 2018 kicked off on Small Business Saturday 1 December and ran through to Sunday 16 December 2018.

 

Small Business Saturday is a grassroots organisation that also works to celebrate the role of local businesses up and down the UK.

 

American Express is proud to be a founding partner.

Our annual Shop Small offer has now ended, but during the campaign our Cardmembers and their Supplementary Cardmembers were given back a £5 credit on their statement, when they spent £10 or more in a single transaction in-store at participating small businesses.


Whilst the offer is now closed, you can still continue to support your local small independent businesses up and down your high street and help your communities to thrive.

Spend £10 or more and get £5 back*
Just spend £10 or more on your Card in a single transaction at a participating small business, and we'll give you back a £5 credit on your statement.  Offer runs from 1 - 16 December 2018.
There's no limit to the number of £5 credits you can receive, but you can only claim it once at each small business.
To take part, just register your Card - or Supplementary Card - and you're ready to Shop Small once the offer is live.  Supplementary Cardmembers can also register for the offer, they just need an online Account.
Registration is easy, and you can register your Card right up until the offer ends on 16 December 2018.
