Making my way through the news that came up over the 73 hour electronic hiatus (the first of of 3 such hiatuses over the next few weeks)…
American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser.
Last year AMEX slashed the Small Business Saturday credit from $25 to $10. This year it will be $30, though it will take 3 swipes per card to get that. My local kosher grocer just gives me their machine at the checkout counter to make my way through my cards. I’ll have to allot triple the time to run through them this year, but at least the store credit will last me three times as long 😀

From past years’ experience this should still work with 3rd party AMEX cards like those from Citi, however if for whatever reason you do not get credit automatically getting it manually will be extremely difficult. With AMEX issued cards it’s easy to be credited manually.
As in the past this will also work with primary and secondary cards directly from AMEX, but not with secondary cards from 3rd party issuers like Citi. Of course each card must be registered separately but you are able to use the same email address. Beware that some people have reported going through a financial review for adding too many additional cardholders to their account.
With just 1 or 2 free additional user cards you can effectively wipe out the annual fee of an excellent card like the Starwood or Everyday Preferred card!
There’s still time to signup for additional cards (and add additional users to each of those cards) to take advantage of this promotion.

–Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express
