Get cashback with AMEX’s Shop Small promotion this weekend

Sally McMullen 12 May 2016


Earn up to $30 cashback when using your American Express credit card at small businesses.

American Express is giving you the chance to get something back for your purchases this weekend with the Shop Small promotion. Over 14-15 May, you'll be rewarded with $30 credit on your account if you spend $60 at three different participating small businesses.

The promotion is designed to show cardholders where AMEX can be used in their neighbourhood while they support local businesses, and counter the idea that American Express can’t be used at local cafes or restaurants,

If you’d like to participate in the Small Shop promotion, you’ll need to follow these steps:

  • Register an eligible American Express card.
  • Use it to spend $20 or more in a single transaction at a participating Shop Small business location.
  • Receive a $10 credit.

You can do this up to three times over the course of the weekend at participating businesses, though the cashback may take up to five business days to appear in their account. The promotion includes a wide range of cards, including those issued by American Express, ANZ, Commonwealth Bank, NAB and Westpac.

This offer is limited to the first 30,000 cards registered to the program, so make sure to register through the AMEX app or Shop Small Australia website soon if you want to receive your cashback this weekend. Registrations are open from now until 11.59pm on Sunday when the promotion closes.

The Shop Small promotion is a great way to support local businesses and get something back for your spending this weekend. Due to run again in September and November this year, keep an eye out on for more opportunities to receive extra perks when shopping at your local with Shop Small.
