Now I know you support us all year round, which we are delighted about, but this non-commercial campaign just wants to highlight this every year on the first Saturday of December. All you need to do is stay local and shop local and support all the wonderful independent businesses in your town and on your doorstep, simple. Each year, AMERICAN EXPRESS Card members are rewarded for using their card on local high streets up and down the country. This whole campaign ties in with another close to our hearts and that’s the JustaCard campaign that had a successful week recently promoting itself on social media and spreading the word via all the creatives that took part. (If you are not following them on social media then please do).
Shop Small kicks off as usual on Small Business Saturday on Saturday 7th December 2019 and runs through to Sunday 22nd December 2019 and gives its cardholders £5 back (they have to register). All they have to do is spend just £10 or more on their AMEX card in a single transaction with us and they give you back a £5 credit on your statement. Offer runs from 1 – 16 December 2018. Find us on the map here and there are many other small businesses in Hebden Bridge involved so you can get £5 credit back from all of us if you spend just £10 at all those businesses participating … this could be buying a magazine, a stunning piece of jewellery, some functional ceramics or a limited edition print from us, coffee and cake from Cafe Solo, a few beers or glasses of wine at Old Gate, the best burritos from Rick’s Mexican Street Food, a new party frock from Dragonfly and even stopping over for the evening at the luxury Croft Mill.
Small Business Saturday is a grassroots organisation that also works to celebrate the role of local businesses up and down the UK. American Express is proud to be a founding partner.
