The ever-popular American Express Shop Small Promotion is back in another round, proving very popular in the first few rounds between 2018 and 2021.
From June 29 to August 24, 2022, American Express cardholders can register their card and then earn $ 5 statement credit by spending $ 10 with participating shop Small Merchant, up to five times the total on each eligible card. Up to $ 25 in statement credit.
Register for shop small
This round of American Express Shop Small Promotions is available to participate in designated physical small businesses in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Ottawa and Calgary, as well as online small businesses across the country.
That way, even if you live outside of one of these major cities, you can take advantage of Shop Small promotions by shopping online at a qualified retailer near you.
To register with Shop Small, go to your Amex offers section in your online dashboard, and you’ll see the offer available for registration. The Shop Small offer has been spotted on a wide range of Amex cards including Platinum Cards, Business Platinum Cards, Cobalt Cards and more.
Once you are registered, you can take advantage of the “Spend $ 10, Get $ 5” offer from any participating Shop Small retailer in Canada, with a total statement credit of up to 25.
(The 5 $ $ 5 structure is less generous than the previous year, when we had 10 $ $ 5 statement credit, up to a total of $ 50. I imagine the argument here is that small businesses may not be Required As much as they supported in the summer of 2020 and 2021 in 2022.)
There is a limit of 100,000 registrations, so it’s worth clicking “Add to Card” as soon as possible to make sure you qualify for it before the offer expires.
Consistent with the new registration cap, as in previous years, the Shop Small offer will appear on only one Amex product per cardholder instead of each Amex card you hold.
This is a disappointing development for those of us who have made the most of Shop Small offers across 10+ cards over the years, although there is a solution through Scotiabank-issued Amex cards if you want to fully support your local small businesses.
How it works
As before, you can use Amex store small map Filter “Shop Small” to find participating retailers.
You will find a list of participating locations in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Ottawa and Calgary, all marked with the Shop Small logo.
You can also browse a list of in-store small retailers, including stores and online locations. There are several registered charities on this list, so if you have extra credit by the end of the summer, you might consider donating এই 10 to these charities and benefiting from both a $ 5 statement credit and a tax receipt.
The promotion is intended to reward you for shopping at 10 different bars at five times Different Shop small retailers. To that end, the terms say:
To be eligible for the $ 5 (CAD) Statement Credit, an eligible purchase of at least $ 10 (CAD) per transaction, after tax, must be charged to your registered card at up to 5 different participating locations in Canada during the offer period and subsequently posted to your account. At least $ 10 (CAD) in a single transaction is an eligible purchase that is made directly to a different participating business or a different location of the same participating business with a $ 5 (CAD) statement credit, up to a total of 5 statement credits. Or a maximum of $ 25 (CAD) per statement credit on each registered card during the offer period. One or more purchases made directly in the same business location or in the same online business will only be eligible to receive a $ 5 (CAD) statement credit.
Therefore, to get the full 25 on statement credits you will probably need to shop with five different shop small merchants.
However, if you or your family members have multiple American Express cards and have registered them, you can always split a large transaction into multiple একাধিক 10 payments on a separate card, thus triggering one in five $ 5 credits for each card used.
If you put extra pressure on your cashier or waiter during the process of splitting a large bill, be sure to give a generous tip (probably using another American Express card from your pack)!
Scotiabank Amex cardholders can also register
Like many previous Amex offers, Shop Small promotions are also available for Scotiabank American Express cardholders to register through this link.
The manual registration option is available for primary and supplementary cardholders of Scotiabank American Express Card, Scotiabank Gold American Express Card and Scotiabank Platinum American Express Card.
Unlike Amex-issued Amex cards, you can register as many Scotiabank-issued Amex primary or supplementary cards as you like for Shop Small, so it’s an ideal way to multiply your Shop Small earnings and truly maximize the offer. There are piles of these cards sitting around.
American Express Shop Small is back for 2022, supporting small businesses on one of your American Express products as well as allowing you to earn up to $ 25 statement credit for all your ScotiaBank-issued Amex cards.
This promotion has certainly been less generous than the previous year, when Shop Small offered a statement credit of up to $ 50 (or more in some cases) and it was also possible to register all your Amex cards under the Amex offer dashboard.
Still, it’s a chance to earn a $ 25 refund when you drink coffee and ice cream, and you can scale these earnings with other cardholders in your family or through a strong portfolio of Scotia Amex cards. Go ahead and register all the Amex cards you can get your hands on – and then get the cost!
