Shop Small and save this December
A few years ago, when large shops and department stores were dominating our high streets, a new initiative started to help support the small business, particularly around Christmas. This has developed over time in different areas. We live in a village in the north west of England and to us this is about supporting our small local shops, and those people who have built up a business from their kitchen table which now sells nationwide.
For me, this quote sums it up:
“When you buy from a small business an actual person does a little dance”
and it’s true … we actually do!
This year we are getting behind the American Express campaign for Small Business Saturday. The first Saturday in December has become known as Small Business Saturday; where as a community we encourage others to shop in our local businesses. Each year, American Express reward their Card members for using their Card on local high streets up and down the country. This year, Shop Small kicks off with Small Business Saturday on 2 December 2017 and runs through to 17 December 2017.
The great benefit to you is that when you spend £10 or more you get £5 back*. Firstly register your card with American Express, you can do this by following this link. Just spend £10 or more on your American Express Card in a single transaction at a participating small business, and you'll get a £5 credit on your statement. Offer runs from 2 – 17 December 2017. There's no limit to the number of £5 credits you can receive, but you can only claim it once at each small business. To find who else is participating in this great deal click here for a map.
So whether you're doing some Christmas shopping for loved ones, needing an Apple TV module for a client or Theme Creator to make your life that bit easier; remember that supporting the small businesses means a great deal.
