  • If you've an American Express card (some exclusions – see below), you'll be able to get £5 cashback when you spend £10 or more at participating local businesses until Sun 13 Sep. It's valid at thousands of independent small shops, and will also work at selected restaurants, hairdressers etc when they reopen – but not the big chains.

    It's in-store only, so purchases made online – even at a participating retailer – won't work. It's important to bear in mind that stores should have social distancing measures in place and you may need to queue outside if it's a busy time.

    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.

    2. Look for participating retailers near you and use your Amex to spend £10+ in a single transaction in store between Mon 22 Jun and Sun 13 Sep. Some stores may still be closed for the moment or have limited opening hours due to the coronavirus pandemic, so it's best to check (you can usually do this either by looking at recent social media posts or calling the store) to make sure it's open.

    3. Your £5 cashback should appear as a credit to your card within five working days, but could take as long as 90 days from the offer end date. If you've an Amex cashback card, you get your normal level of cashback as well.

    You can only get the £5 cashback once in each store, but you can use this offer up to 10 times, so a maximum of £50 back on your shopping.

    Which American Express cards qualify?

    Anyone with an American Express card issued in the UK can get this deal, excluding:

    • Corporate cards
    • Business travel cards
    • Store cards
    • Prepaid cards

  • Amex 'Shop Small' free £5 on single £10+ spend

    Amex 'Shop Small' free £5 on single £10+ spend

    Available at local stores - selected Amex cardholders only

    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.
