Small Business Saturday is an opportunity for customers to shop small and support small businesses. This is not a day for people who are interested in starting a business to get together; instead this is a day for customers to support local small businesses, that help drive the economy and keep communities going.
American Express started Small Business Saturday started in 2010 to help small businesses get more exposure during one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year. According to American Express, over 100 million people shopped at independently-owned small businesses on the day.
This year, if you register your American Express credit card, you will get $25 statement credit whenever you spend $25 or more at a participating small business. It’s a win-win situation for everyone!
