American Express has given me a challenge, I do believe I can complete – shop for five people on a budget. They are providing me with $250 to shop while supporting at least one Small Business as part of the Small Business Saturday Event on November 26, 2011.
I’ve also been provided with 40,000 American Express Membership Rewards points to find additional gifts or maybe a gift for myself! As a long time American Express Holder, I know these points can be redeemed for electronics, travel, and even gift cards. I rarely carry cash, as it disappears too easily, so I use my American Express card for almost every purchase, pay it off each month, and earn points on my shopping and everyday purchases.
American Express is encouraging shoppers to shop Small Business Saturday and get a $25 credit back when you register an eligible American Express Card. Then use your card for a purchase of $25 or more at a small business on November 26 to receive your statement credit. Small businesses are the heart of the economy. They are the jobs creators and mean so much to many communities.
I used the zip code finder on the Small Business Saturday Facebook page and came up with several small businesses in my area including Moser Jewelers, Pizza King, and Ace Hardware. All of these are within a five minute drive, which saves time and gas.
American Express would like to give one lucky Bargain Briana a $250 Gift Card of your choice! Next week, I’ll announce the winner and share the 5 gifts I was able to purchase with a $250.
