One of my favorite days of year is fast approaching. A day off from work and free money to spend, makes for a fun day after Thanksgiving!
This year for American Express Small Business Saturday, each Amex card will qualify for up to three (3) $10 statement credits. This will be the most lucrative (per card) bonus to date.
American Express Small Business Saturday takes place on November 29, 2014.
To qualify, registration is required. (Registration is limited so I’d be sure to act fast and register your cards as soon as possible.)
Registration opened last night at 12:00 AM MST so I made sure to stay up and register my 3 American Express cards. This is the least amount of Amex cards that I’ve had for the promo in years but I’m not complaining. $90 free to spend is nothing to cry home about!
Find out how I spent my previous Amex Small Biz Saturdays:

- 2013- We were in Florida last year and didn’t really have time to run around look for small businesses to shop at. So I bought $10 gift cards (I believe we had 5 Amex cards) at a local market and my parent gave me the money back for them.
