Small Business Saturday is the day after Black Friday, and is a totally made-up holiday invented by American Express. The idea is to encourage people to shop at small businesses.
On Small Business Saturday, if you register and pay with your Amex card, you’ll get $25 for free. All you need to do is shop at a small business on November 24, spend over $25, and then get a $25 statement credit on your card.
The best part? This works for every Amex you have. So, if you've got more than one, you can get $25 for each card.
Don't need anything on Saturday? Buy a gift certificate.
Registration begins November 18 and it's limited, so sign up quickly if you plan on getting your free money.
