  • If you've an American Express card (Amex), you may be able to get £5 cashback when you spend £10 or more at participating local businesses – ie, not chains, but independent small shops, restaurants, hairdressers, galleries etc. The offer’s available until Mon 2 Sep or when 100,000 eligible Amex customers have saved it to their card (whichever comes first).

    Yet unfortunately, not everyone can get it. When we asked Amex who’s eligible it simply told us this is a “targeted” promotion aimed at some of its customers, and to find out if you’re eligible you’ll need to follow the steps below.

    How to get it

    1. Go to the American Express Shop Small website and save the offer to your card, or you can do this in the 'Offers' section of the Amex app. If you don't see the offer, you're not eligible.

    2. If you have the offer, look for participating retailers and use your Amex to spend £10+ in a single transaction in store.

    3. Your £5 cashback should appear as a credit to your card within five working days, but could take as long as eight weeks.

    Unlike previous 'Shop Small' promotions, where you’ve been allowed to claim the cashback from multiple retailers, you can only use this offer once per card.

    MSE Laura B says:

    This promotion is only available for the first 100,000 eligible cardholders who save the offer to their card, so it might be worth logging in and saving it even if you're not planning to buy just yet, otherwise you could miss out. For a different cashback offer, see our blog on how to bag money off your phone bill.

    This is similar to a big promotion Amex usually runs in December, but this time is for a limited number of customers only and can’t be used more than once.

    £5 back at 1,000s of local stores for Amex cardholders

    American Express often has cashback offers when you spend at certain stores, but this is a big one – its annual Shop Small promotion, which is valid in thousands of local shops and restaurants across the UK.

    From Sat 1 Dec until Sun 16 Dec, if you're an American Express cardholder (some exclusions, see below), you can get £5 cashback when spending £10+ at selected local businesses including restaurants, clothes shops, hotels, hairdressers and galleries when you register your Amex with the Shop Small website.

    What's more, you can use it alongside discount vouchers, or in a sale, to maximise the savings, though it won't work on the purchase of gift cards. Plus if you've got an Amex cashback card, you get your normal level of cashback as well.

    We correctly predicted this deal would happen – see our Christmas Deals Predictor for more festive forecasting.

    How it works

    • Register the offer to your Amex. Go to the American Express Shop Small website and save the offer to your card, or you can do this in the 'Offers' section of the Amex app.
    • Shop between 1 Dec and 16 Dec. Find participating retailers and use your Amex for a purchase of £10+ in a single transaction in store only.
    • Wait for the £5 cashback. It should appear as a credit to your card within five working days, but in the worst case, could take up to eight weeks.

    The offer only gets cashback once at each retailer per card but there’s no limit to the number of retailers you can get cashback from during the promotional period.
