Confession time. I’ve already started holiday shopping. I actually shop all year long and hide my gifts in the attic. If I see something I know my family would love, I grab it while I can. BUT I have SO MUCH MORE TO GO! 🙂 American Express has asked me to take their ‘Holiday Shopping Challenge’. They are giving me 40,000 Membership Rewards points so I can purchase a gift for 5 of my family members. I need to start thinking about all of this!!
One thing I know for sure is that I will take advantage of Small Business Saturday. Have you heard about this yet?
American Express is encouraging everyone to SHOP LOCAL this November 26th and will even reward you for participating in the initiative. Get a one-time $25 statement credit when you register an eligible American Express Card and use that Card for a purchase of $25 or more at a small business on November 26th. How amazing is that?! Take the pledge and get ready for that bonus to show up on your statement next month!!!!
Getting paid to shop? Yeah… I can get down with that. 🙂
Now, I need your help! By offering up these tips, you are entering to win a gift card of YOUR CHOICE valued at $250! Please note: this contest is opened to US residents only.
For the prize: What are some of your personal tips for staying within your holiday budget?
How can you enter? EASY!
