Did you know that American Express supports local businesses by paying you back for some of your purchases every year on the Saturday after Black Friday? This year, in 2014, if you have an American Express card and you use it a participating location, you will get a $10 statement credit for every $10 or more purchase you make (limit of 3 different purchases).
This is a fantastic way to support our local businesses that might be having a tough time in the economy. And its not just retail businesses. If you can’t think of anything you need to shop for, did you know you could also use it for services or restaurants.
I was excited to see that Isaac’s Restaurant and Deli is a participating location in Lancaster County! Other local participating restaurants include Bright’s Family Restaurant, Javateas, Yogurtwerks, The Sandwich Factory, The Pressroom, Kingdom Buffet, Blue Pacific Sushi and Grill, Tomato Pie Cafe, Cafe Chocolate of Lititz, Saladworks, JB Dawson’s, California Tortilla and Star Buffet.
Find all participating locations with the American Express Shop Small website.
