American Express has been encouraging consumers to spend at small businesses for over a decade, but with many still struggling amid the pandemic, the company is continuing to offer incentives for its cardholders to 'shop small.'

And now, for a limited time, eligible Amex cardholders can earn $15 off when they spend $20 at the Shop Small® x ByBlack Amex holiday curation at Showfields.

Select highlights what you need to know about the offer, how to register and a few of our favorite American Express cards.

Once you add the offer and use the card for purchases on the site, you will receive $15 back as a statement credit. Keep in mind if you have more than one American Express credit card, you can only use this offer on one of your eligible cards, and you must make your purchase by Dec. 31.

I logged into my Amex portal this morning and found this offer on my Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express. It appears that many accounts are targeted for this offer, so make sure to check if this deal appears on any of your Amex cards.
