As shoppers hit the high street in preparation for this year’s festive season, American Express is again encouraging the nation to support local businesses with the return of its popular Shop Small Offer.
From 1st to the 3rd of December 2023, American Express UK Cardmembers will receive a £5 statement credit when they spend £15 or more at participating small businesses across the UK. The Offer can be used up to 3 times, once per participating small business location, meaning that Cardmembers can reward themselves with up to £15 back in statement credits, helping their spending go further this December.
The Shop Small Offer will launch on the eve of Small Business Saturday (which returns on the 2nd of December 2023). American Express continues to be the principal supporter of Small Business Saturday, championing the high street and encouraging the nation to shop small in the run up to the festive season and beyond. New research1 from American Express shows that 79% of UK adults think it’s important to support local businesses when shopping this Christmas.
Our research shows there is a strong desire among shoppers to support small businesses which sit at the heart of our local communities. We’re proud to champion them once again with our Shop Small campaign which offers Cardmembers cashback on their festive and everyday shopping, while encouraging all-important footfall on the high street. Over this crucial shopping period, we invite our Cardmembers to show their love for the places that make our villages, towns and cities so special.-Harry Mole, Vice President, American Express
