Shop Small is dedicated to supporting small businesses who do big things for their local communities.

We drive customers to your door

Since 2012, Shop Small has been raising the profile of small businesses at the heart of our local communities. In December 2017, we once again incentivised our Cardmembers with a special offer.

When our Cardmembers spent £10 or more, once, at a participating small business, they received a £5 credit on their statement*, which was funded by American Express®.

It’s just one of the ways we’re helping to shine the spotlight on small businesses and helping our high street to thrive.


Our map helps Cardmembers find small businesses which accept American Express. Data correct as of October 2017.


Stay up to date with your American Express® Merchant Account online by tracking recent payments, downloading e-statements, resolving Cardmember disputes, and more.

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.

Member since 2012

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!
