American Express is launching a campaign asking Canadians to shop at their local small businesses as they recover from the economic impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. The latest Shop Small campaign will encourage Canadians to patronize nearby shops, restaurants and other local businesses through advertising, and by giving money back in the form of statement credits when they buy local with their Amex card. “Small businesses across the country need our support now more than ever,” Lisa Kalhans, president and CEO of American Express Canada, said in a statement. Over the next three months, card users can earn $5 back in statement credits when they spend at least $10 at qualifying small businesses, earning up to $50 through the program.
