Shop Small returns: Earn £5 when spending £15 or more at small businesses

June 8, 2022


UK, 8 June 2022 – Just in time for summer, American Express is once again showing its support for local, small businesses across the UK with the return of the Shop Small Offer this June.

From 20 - 26 June 2022, American Express Cardmembers will receive a £5 statement credit when they spend £15 or more at participating small businesses across the UK. This can be used up to 5 times, once per participating small business location, meaning that Cardmembers can earn up to £25 back in statement credits.

Cardmembers must enrol for the Shop Small Offer from 13 June, 2022 (enrolment available to the final day of the Offer on 26 June), through the American Express® App or their Online Account. They can search for participating businesses via the Shop Small Map.

American Express has a long history of championing the high street, and its Shop Small campaign, which launched in the UK 10 years ago, aims to support small businesses across the country by encouraging people to shop frequently at their local businesses.

Dan Edelman, Vice President at American Express, said: “After the challenges of the past two years it’s important that we continue to support the small businesses that contribute so much to our local high streets and communities. That’s why we’re encouraging our Cardmembers to show their appreciation by shopping locally with the return of our Shop Small Offer.  First launched 10 years ago, Shop Small helps independent businesses attract customers through their doors and is just one of the ways American Express champions small businesses all year round.”
