Amex Shop Small is back: win 1 million points when you shop with small merchants

American Express is running its popular Shop Small promotion again this year, which rewards card members when they use their card with small merchants.

Shop Small is traditionally held for a month in the lead up to Christmas, though that was disrupted by the pandemic.

The goal of the program is also to support small businesses and raise awareness about how widely Amex is accepted these days. That’s great for card members who want to maximise points earning opportunities with their cards.

In previous years we’ve seen different types of promotions, including:

  • April 2021: earn triple points per $1 up to 40,000 bonus points over the next twelve months
  • June 2020: get $5 back when you spend $10 or more, up to 10 times
  • Nov 2019: get $10 back when you spend $20 or more, up to 5 times
  • Nov 2018: get $10 back when you spend $20 or more, up to 5 times
  • Nov 2017: get $10 back when you spend $20 or more, up to 5 times

Disappointingly, Amex has downgraded the promo this year to a competition.

Card members have the opportunity to win 1 million Qantas, Velocity or Membership Reward points, depending on their card loyalty program.

There are 10 prizes of 1 million points on offer.

Card members need to register for the competition and then they’ll get an entry for each transaction of $1 or more at a participating Shop Small business.

As always, thousands of small merchants around the country are taking part in this initiative, from coffee shops to boutiques and more, and this includes micro-businesses that use Square payment terminals.

You can browse local participating businesses using the tools on Amex’s website.

  1. Won’t even bother this year, like my AMEX Ultimate but treating existing customers with disdain now. Time to move on and instead look for some decent sign on bonuses
