American Express OPEN® Enhances Small Business Savings Program with New Partners
NEW YORK,  August 23, 2010 -- 

American Express OPEN today announced the expansion of its OPEN Savings® program with OfficeMax®, HP and Flextronics RTS's Firedog tech support and enhanced savings with Hertz®. OPEN Savings gives small business owners automatic savings virtually every time they use an American Express® Business Card to make purchases at any OPEN Savings partner. Cardmembers are able to apply their OPEN Savings on top of any other partner sales, discounts or promotions.

  • Firedog: Cardmembers will save 10% on all Firedog purchases including end-to-end tech support service for computer installations, repair, PC upgrades, virus removal and all other business technology needs at www.firedog.com or 1-800-FIREDOG.
  • Hertz: Cardmembers can now save up to 10% at Hertz. They save 5% on purchases when spending between $500 and $2,500 a year and 10% on purchases when spending more than $2,500 a year.
  • HP Direct: Cardmembers will receive 5% off all purchases from the world's largest technology company at www.hpdirect.com or 866-511-0279.
  • OfficeMax: Cardmembers will save 5% when they spend over $100 on a single transaction, by phone, online or at nearly 1,000 OfficeMax stores.

"In today's economy, small businesses are seeking smart ways to reduce expenses," said Kirk Fitzsimmons, vice president OPEN Savings. "Our new partners provide real savings on categories our cardmembers have consistently told us they want."

OPEN Savings has delivered more than $425 million in savings to American Express Business Cardmembers since 2004. The small business savings program eliminates the need for offer codes, coupons or program enrollment and provides automatic savings from well-known brands. Savings can also be combined with other marketplace offers or volume discount pricing that businesses may already be receiving from program partners.

OPEN Savings is a benefit embedded within all American Express® Business Cards. American Express OPEN Cardmembers simply need to use their credit or charge card for purchases with any OPEN Savings partner to take advantage of discounts. The savings automatically appears on the Cardmember's monthly statement and can be tracked at www.opensavings.com. OPEN Savings discounts are calculated on the full transaction amount, including any taxes and surcharges. Terms and conditions apply.*
