Amex Shop Small: What’s to love

Amex Shop Small is my favourite American Express card membership perk. It offers a discount on everyday purchases I’d likely make anyway and it helps to support small businesses in the local community.

The promotion is designed to encourage American Express card members to spend at small businesses while highlighting the wide acceptance of Amex locally.

We’ve put together a guide to help you maximise value from this popular ‘Spend and Save’ promotion.
