Shop Small is a program run by American Express through the month of November where you get a $10 cashback for each time you spend $20 or more at five different participating small business retailers.
The promotion encourages spending on your American Express at small businesses all around Australia!
How Does It Work?
Each time you spend $20 or more at a participating small business, you get $10 back as a statement credit up to 5 times. It’s as simple as that! Click here for a map of participating retailers so you can find one near you easily.
The range and type of retailers are broad so there shouldn’t be any difficulty finding a retailer to accept your Amex. So hopefully this means you shouldn’t have to go out of your way to change your spending habits!
Also to note, this offer is per cardmember, so if you have a few secondary card holders up your sleeve, get them to sign up as well for extra statement credit fun!
