Amex has announced some new and exciting offers for Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday was launched in 2010 and is held annually the first Saturday after Thanksgiving. Since its start, it has been a roaring success. According to a Consumer Insights Survey, in 2015, 95 million Americans shopped at small independent retailers and restaurants, spending over 16.2 billion dollars – an increase of 14% on the figures from 2014.
Elizabeth Rutledge, Vice President, Global Advertising and Brand Management stated:
“It's exciting to see how Small Business Saturday has evolved over the years. When all of us rally to support the small businesses that make our neighborhoods unique, the impact is truly inspiring.” The company has even bigger hopes for 2016. “This year, we want all kinds of small businesses to get involved – from fitness studios, to cafés, to retail stores and restaurants – so we’ve created even more ways for Americans to participate on Small Business Saturday, whether you're a night owl or morning person.”
