Amex Small Business Saturday is one of the most lucrative promotions American Express has run the past few years. While some American Express cards have somewhat high annual fees, American Express offers so many ways to get cash back, which in many cases more than offset the annual fees. For example, just a few weeks ago they paid $150 of my phone bill.
This year for Small Business Saturday, American Express offered up to three $10 statement credits per card when you shopped at a small business on Saturday, November 29, 2014.
It was interesting to see the different thoughts all of you had on this promotion after the fact. Some thought it wasn’t worth the effort for “just” a $10 statement credit per transaction, while others maximized the heck out of the promotion.
Anyway, the terms said that the Small Business Saturday statement credits would post within 90 days, though for all of my eligible cards the statement credits have already posted.
This has been my experience in the past as well, where they claim it could take a very long time, but in practice the credits post within a few days.
Have your Small Business Saturday statement credits posted as well?
