Is this list of eligible merchants at Amex's discretion? I mean, doesnt seem like any way to know ahead of time whether or not a purchase will qualify for certain.

So hurry if you want to act on this!

It just looks like a way to get people to spend at least $25 at a bunch of places hoping one will be a hit. A great way to drive spend from AMEX's point of view. I registered just in case I happen to buy something that qualifies, but won't go out of my way to find a small business.

Where is a list of small businesses?

I have read of people having issues getting the statement credit. Anyone have any success with this before?

Thanks OP. Registered. Now on a search to find a small business that accepts Amex and not part of any franchise.

Shouldn't be too challenging: restaurants, bakeries, salons, spas, jewelers, boutiques, newsstands, independent booksellers, etc.
