Now through December 31, enroll an eligible American Express card in “Shop Small for 2X Rewards’ to earn double the rewards at qualifying small merchant locations and websites. 

However, you won’t earn two times the rewards on any bonus that you may already get with your card.

American Express has been running promotions for several years to highlight Small Business Saturday, which is November 26. It falls between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. 

Here are some of the cards that qualify for the offer:

  • Blue Cash EveryDay & Blue Cash Preferred Card
  • Blue Sky Points
  • Delta SkyMiles
  • Lowe’s Business Rewards Points
  • Membership Rewards® program-enrolled Cards
  • Plenti Points
  • SimplyCash
  • Schwab Cash Back
  • Starwood Preferred Guest Starpoints

Of course, it only makes sense to take advantage of this double rewards offer if you’re able to stay within your budget and pay off your balance in full every month.
