Supporting small businesses – our high street heroes

Since 2012, Shop Small has been raising the profile of small businesses at the heart of our local communities. In December 2016, we once again incentivised our Cardmembers with a special offer.

When our Cardmembers spent £10 or more at a participating small business, they received a £5 credit on their statement, which was funded by American Express®.

It’s just one of the ways we’re helping to shine the spotlight on small businesses and helping our high street to thrive.

The ad creator tool is now closed for 2016

American Express offered participating small businesses the opportunity to create a personalised online Ad. It was easy to create and we took care of promoting it online, at no cost to participating small businesses.
