Tomorrow marks the 3rd Small Business Saturday by American Express and it is expected to be bigger than ever.
Some estimates say $5.3 billion will be spent on Small Business Saturday this year.
Small Business Saturday is held between Black Friday and Cyber Monday to take advantage of people’s urge to shop and catch deals.
Recognizing how important small business is to the economy as well as supporting our communities, American Express created this event to help bring awareness and business to local shops.
If using your shopping to help keep small business going wasn’t enough of an incentive, American Express is offering a $25 rebate to shop “small” this Saturday.
Whether or not you are an AMEX cardholder, stop in a local shop or two and show some love (and cash, of course).
If you’re already planning to shop this weekend, why not stop at a few small, local shops to show some support?
