If you have any American Express credit cards, check your “Amex Offers” in either your online account or smartphone app. Most people are seeing the offer “Spend $10+, get $5 back up to 2X (total of $10) after you Shop Small”.

Get a $5 statement credit by using your enrolled eligible Card to make a single purchase of $10+ directly at any business on the Shop Small Map (or Online Directory) in the US or US territories by 08/22/21. Limit of 2 statement credits (total of $10 back)

Here’s a screenshot:

You can find eligible businesses at americanexpress.com/shopsmalloffer or americanexpress.com/shopsmallonline.

This is a smaller deal than last year, but it’s easy enough.

Our two “keeper” consumer American Express cards are the Amex EveryDay Card (keeps my Membership Rewards points active with no annual fee, helps qualify for various Amazon and AmEx promotions) and the AmEx Blue Cash Preferred (earns 6% cash back on US supermarkets, up to $6,000 annually and 6% cash back on US streaming services).

The “keeper” business American Express card that I maintain is the Blue Business Plus Card – Earn 2X Membership Rewards points on all purchases, of up to $50,000/year. There is also the Blue Business Cash Card that earns a flat 2% cash back on up to $50,000 in purchases each year. I prefer the flexibility of having MR points, but both have no annual fee.

  1. Unfortunately, unlike last year, this promotion is not being made available to Amex Serve cardholders. I’ll guess that the same is true for Amex Bluebird. These are prepaid debit cards.

    I’ve found the Serve card useful for the rare times when a vendor takes only Amex. I also get 1% cash back (as a credit against future purchases) with no fee. But now it seems Amex has started treating this card differently from other Amex-issued cards. Any other cards not getting the 2021 Shop Small promotion?
