Shop Small Businesses This Saturday!

Posted November 22, 2012 by Marcy Twete in Life After Five

You might wonder why we’re posting about Small Business Saturday on Thanksgiving Thursday. It’s because we want to make you think…about tomorrow. Should you head out at 5am and spend your cash all day in the big box stores? Or would you rather have a true impact shopping just one day later? It might be worth it!

For the last few years, sandwiched between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, American Express has sponsored “Small Business Saturday.” If you shop, on that day, at thousands of small businesses around the country, American Express will give you a $25 statement credit!
