Some of you may recall American Express’ “Small Business Saturday” promotion from last year. To support local businesses they offered a $25 American Express statement credit to those that spent at least $25 at a small business on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
The first great news is that the same promotion is returning again this year, so mark your calendars for Saturday, November 26.
The other exciting news is that Fedex is supporting the promotion by giving away 30,000 small business gift cards worth $25 each at 1PM ET on Tuesday, November 1. All you have to do is “like” Fedex on Facebook and be one of the first 30,000 people to register on Tuesday. Be sure you’re quick, because I assume these will be gone in no time.
