‘Small Business Saturday’ Looks To Boost Mom & Pop Shops

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – If Black Friday wasn’t enough for you, today is Small Business Saturday, a day dedicated to supporting small businesses on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year.

American Express launched the campaign last year, asking customers to spend their money at their favorite local shops to help the economy.

If you use your AMEX card at qualifying businesses, you can even get a $25 credit. More than 2 million people have liked the event on Facebook.

    As usual, the “reporters” at CBS11 have no details. Cardmembers need to register to pledge that they will spend at a local business in order to be eligible for up to $25 in rebates for spending local. I’ll use my AMEX at a few local businesses today, but I sure would have liked to have known about having to REGISTER first for the rewards. Registration is now hit its limit and is closed.

    This is very good stuff, and it is good for those person who would like to open for his/er small business. Thanks for such a post.
