Some $20+ Shop Small Purchases Trigger $10 Credit

Some $20+ Shop Small Purchases Trigger $10 Credit

American Express cardholders can save up to $50 when shopping at eligible small businesses. You just need to enroll an eligible American Express® Card by July 26, 2020, to get a $5 statement credit after using your enrolled Card to make a single purchase of $10 or more directly with any small business in the U.S. on the Shop Small® Map by September 20, 2020, up to 10 times.

Some unexpected merchants are triggering the credit for this offer, so it is a good idea to keep an eye on your accounts and see if you notice any $5 credits. Additionally some merchants are triggering a $10 credit when the purchase is $20 or more (triggering 2 credit instead of one). These seem to be random. I have seen a couple of data points on reddit and a friend of mine also saw it happen wit a restaurant purchase. This does not change the maximum $50 in credits that you receive, but it does make it easier to use. Let me know if you have seen these $10 credits (not two separate credits from two purchases bundled together).

Keep in mind that you can also use the offer to purchase gift cards in the Fluz app, Samsung Pay or eGifter.

  1. I had it happen recently. It was for a single $212 payment to a Fire Extinguisher inspection company and a couple days later a single $10 credit showed up. I also had two of the promotional $5 credits bundled into a single $10 statement credit but they were for two separate purchases at the same store in the same day. One purchase was for $10 exactly and the other purchase was made just minutes later at the same store for $17 and instead of two statement credits it came as a single $10 credit.
