AMEX "Shop Small" Offer - Spend $10+, Receive $5 Back (10 Limit)

https://www.doctorofcredit.com/targeted-amex-offer-shop-small-spend-10-receive-5-limit-10/

 

Thanks to Doctor of Credit for the heads-up. AMEX promoting small business shopping with this offer. Spend $10+ on approved small businesses online or on their shopping map and get $5 back, up to 10 times. Think it's a nice initiative: help small businesses and get ~50% back on your spend so sounds like a win-win all around

Thanks for the heads up. It is on each of my 5 AMEX cards, so I need to figure which to activate it for. 

The offer is valid up to 10x ( $50 ) thus the decisioning about specific card.

Indeed, thanks for the heads up!  I find most of my nearby small businesses to be restaurants, so it was an easy choice to add this to my Gold Card.

Be sure to look at the map for the approved vendors.  I was surprised at the limited number of small businesses that qualified under this offer.  Nice of AMEX to support the small businesses, though!

That must vary drastically by location.  I literally have hundreds of businesses on the list within a 2-3 mile radius.  It was odd to see Walgreen's and Enterprise on there, though - guessing independent stand-alone  franchises.

Have a lot by me. Even better, the small liquor store near my place is one of them. $10 is an easy purchase there when I need impromptu bottles of wine.

@dberryhill Score!  That's even better than get $50 back from wine.com when you spend $100+.  "You can get a whole bunch of Mums."
