Shop Small celebrates the local business owners who do big things for their communities every day.

Each year, our Cardmembers are rewarded for using their Card on local high streets up and down the country. And this year, Shop Small kicks off with Small Business Saturday on 2 December 2017 and runs through to 17 December 2017.

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 you'll get a £5 credit on your statement. Offer runs from 2 – 17 December 2017.

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.

Shop small is fun

love visiting small local shops I most likely wouldn't have gone to otherwise.

The annual Shop Small promotion

is one of the highlights of the year where you can realistically get £50+ of statement credits in a month for buying things you would anyway.

Very pleased

especially with the Small Shops promo which is great on several levels, and good to see more places accepting Amex.

I really liked the Shop Small reward scheme

held in the run up to Christmas – I like supporting small businesses so it was a nice present to get some cash back!
