The Amex Shop Small campaign is back – and it’s better than ever.

You’ll be able to earn up to $50 in statement credits when you use your registered Amex card at participating retailers.

How the Amex Shop Small campaign works

So how do you go about getting your statement credits?

First, you’ll need to sign in to your Amex account, and head to your Amex Offers.

There, you should see the Amex Offer for Shop Small:

Simply click “Register your Card”, and you’re all set to start earning your statement credits. Every time you spend at least $10 with select small merchants, you can earn a $5 statement credit. You can earn a total of $50 during the campaign.

Amex Shop Small ends on September 13, 2020.

Merchants that qualify for Amex Shop Small

Unlike previous Shop Small campaigns, where the only cities you could take part in were Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver, this one is nationwide.

To see what merchants in your area not only take Amex, but also qualify for Shop Small, you can check out your Amex dashboard. There’s a map showing merchants close by that qualify.

For a better view, however, head to this Amex site.

Zoom in on your area, and you’ll see merchants that take American Express cards. If there’s a Shop Small badge on the store listing on the left,, you’ll be able to earn statement credits at the restaurant.

Here’s an example of what it looks like.

It’s also an easy way to see who takes Amex cards.
