American Express Small Business Saturday: Spend $25, Get $25

American Express is encouraging us to shop at small businesses this coming Saturday (11/26/11).

Get a one-time $25 statement credit when you register an eligible American Express Card and use that card to make a purchase of $25 or more at a small business on November 26th. Registration is limited. Terms and Conditions apply.

You can plug your zipcode in to find local small businesses in your area. Also, a number of the deal a day sites are categorized as small businesses, including Plum District. So if you purchase $25 worth of a deal on the 26th, you will get a 100% refund on your purchase!

I’ve also had a number of readers email me to let me know that their yeshivot are classified as small businesses and are participating in this promotion.

What a wonderful way to support your school for FREE. Of course, you can also give $50 – and get back $25. Or more… as your finances allow.

If your school is participating, feel free to “spam” the comments section here with the name and website of the school.
