Amex cardholders can earn up to £25 credit
Amex cardholders who spend £15 or more in a single transaction in-store at a participating ‘Shop Small’ retailer will receive £5 statement credit.
The promotion, now in its tenth year, kicks off from Monday 20 June until Sunday 26 June 2022.
To get the offer, shoppers need to register via the American Express app or via their online account from 13 June.
Cardmembers can use the deal a maximum of five times (once per participating shop) earning up to £25 cashback.
See the Shop Small map link to find out which stores are participating in your local area. The statement credit should be applied within five days but can take up to 90 days to appear.
The offer excludes online transactions, pre-paid cards and buy now, pay later purchases.
Dan Edelman, vice president at American Express, said: “After the challenges of the past two years it’s important that we continue to support the small businesses that contribute so much to our local high streets and communities.
“That’s why we’re encouraging our cardmembers to show their appreciation by shopping locally with the return of our Shop Small offer. First launched 10 years ago, Shop Small helps independent businesses attract customers through their doors and is just one of the ways American Express champions small businesses all year round.”
Scaled back scheme
For the first six years of Shop Small, the offer was unlimited, allowing card holders to earn as much cashback per qualifying spend but in 2019, Amex brought in a 10-time cap and it has since been curbed further.
In June 2020, Shop Small also ran for 12 weeks. Further, the minimum spend has also increased from £10 to £15.
