Today is the first ever Small Business Saturday, a day for you to support the local businesses that you care about. You know, the ones that add charm to your town, the ones that bring character to your neighborhoods, and the most unique items to be found. Black Friday was created for big box retailers, Cyber Monday was created for online retailers. Small Business Saturday is for the small, independently owned businesses around you.
Small Business Saturday is not only a way to encourage you to shop your local stores but there are also incentives! American Express card members who register their card will receive a $25 statement credit when they shop at small, independently owned small businesses on Small Business Saturday.
Get all the details at Small Business Saturday and on Small Business Saturday on Facebook. Plus, when you “like” Small Business Saturday on Facebook, American Express is donating $1 (up to $500,000) to Girls Inc. to empower young women to be entrepreneurs of tomorrow:
