Discover the many ways American Express has your back.

Don't live life without it.

Shop Small

 

Love where you live. Shop Small with American Express to make a big difference to your local community. American Express understands that we can all achieve more – in life and business – if someone has our back. 


That’s why for many years, American Express has been actively encouraging people to shop small, alongside its role as founder and principal supporter of Small Business Saturday in the UK – now in its seventh year. 

 

Learn more below about where you can shop small with American Express plus make the most of our December offer! Just spend £10 or more on your Card in a single transaction in-store at a participating small business, and we’ll give you back a £5 credit on your statement to say thanks for your support. The offer runs from 7 – 22 December 2019.

American Express Experiences

 

Join our Cardmembers at the heart of the action, who got presale tickets to close to 2,000 events last year with American Express Experiences.

 

You can secure some of the best seats in the house for movies, theatre shows and concerts and have a special Cardmember allocation of tickets for events at the National Theatre, where you can receive a 2-for-1 interval drinks voucher when you enjoy a pre-theatre meal on the day of your performance.*

 

Our Cardmembers also enjoy complimentary access to the American Express Lounge at The O2  –  where they can currently receive a welcome drink on us when they order between 6-7pm (until 31 December 2019).*

Membership Rewards® Points

 

Choose a Card with Membership Rewards and earn points on the things you buy every day, from your daily commute to your morning cappucino.  The points you've saved can then be used to treat yourself to almost anything you want, with a range of shopping, travel and lifestyle partners or use them to reduce your monthly statement.

 

You can even use your Membership Rewards points during checkout with Safekey, Amazon.co.uk or Ticketmaster.

 

There's no limit on how many points you could earn and they never expire, so you could even save them up and make a once in a lifetime trip a reality.
