Small Business Saturday

Today is Small Business Saturday - an event that was created by American Express to promote the support of local businesses during the busiest shopping weekend of the year. The irony in all this? Many small businesses don't accept American Express cards. They simply can't because the fees are too high.

We absolutely LOVE the idea of a special shopping day devoted to supporting local, small and independent businesses. In fact, we think it should happen year-round! Here are a couple of web articles that talk about why shopping at small businesses is a great idea:


Yes, it's really cool that when you use your American Express card at a registered small business today you'll get a one time $25 credit on your statement for the first $25 you spend. That's great for you - but if you really want to support the business you're visiting, make the rest of your purchases today in CASH.
