Amex Shop Small promotion returns for March – earn $5 credits or 300 bonus Membership Rewards points

Amex’s awesome Shop Small offer is back again for this month!  Last seen
in November & December the offer once again does not have a dedicated landing and registration page for four
cities in Canada. The offers are actually listed in the Amex Offers
section on the Amex Canada app or online when you log in to your
account. It is still limited to small business merchants in Calgary,
Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver as well as having a cap on the number of
cardmembers who can register for the offer.

As seen during the Christmas holiday season we once again have multiple offers depending on the cardholder. It looks
like you can receive the $5 statement credit offer or 300 bonus Membership Rewards points.

The statement credit version is awarded for purchases of $10 or more from up to 5 different retailers for a total of $25. This one is limited to the first 13,000 members who register.

The bonus points offer awards 300 bonus Membership Rewards points on each $10
purchase at a participating Shop Small merchant up to 5 times. That
means you can earn 1,500 bonus Membership Rewards points in total with
this offer. This one is limited to the first 5,000 members who register.

If you aren’t familiar with American Express’ Shop Small program we have a feature to help you out:  A step by step guide to the American Express Shop Small Program

Also if you aren’t that familiar with Amex Offers I recommend reading our Guide to American Express Canada ‘Amex Offers’

Ideally, those looking to maximize the offer will only spend $10 at each

location to come out with what is essentially a 50% discount (if you
have the $5 offer) or a minimum savings of $3 if you have the points
offer. The points can be worth more than $3 depending on what you redeem
them on however.

For this incarnation, we received the $5 offers on the Platinum Card from American Express and Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card and the 300 points offer on the Gold Rewards Card  and Cobalt Card.

This offer runs until March 31 and to find out what merchants are participating you just have to go to the American Express Shop Small website and look for the Shop Small icon beside the merchant:

You can also choose to filter for only the merchants that are
participating in the offer by checking off the Shop Small Offer box:

Just a reminder that there aren’t dedicated landing pages for the offers
this time. You have to access them via Amex Offers on the app or Amex
Canada website.

Happy shopping!
