Show love to local restaurants. Get rewarded.
Until August 23, Shop Small® and you could earn up to $50 in statement credits. Register your eligible Card and order in or take out from some of these participating restaurants. Terms apply.
Terms & Conditions
Only eligible small Canadian merchants are included in this offer. For a list of eligible merchant locations please visit and for a selection of eligible online merchants please visit, and look for merchants on both websites with a Shop Small icon. Due to this unprecedented period of disruption, please note that the Merchants listed on the American Express Maps or Online Directory may change. Your ability to redeem Amex Offers may be affected at this time due to changes in some Merchants’ operations, such as reduced hours or suspension of in-person shopping, dining or services. American Express Maps is updated from time to time and may not be 100% accurate. While we hope to provide you with this offer on the terms set out here, given the unpredictable nature of the current situation, we may need, and we reserve the right, to change or cancel this offer at any time.
The registered Card account must be in good standing. You must first register your Card to the offer and use the same Card to make qualifying purchase(s) by 23/08/2021. Date format is DD/MM/YYYY. A purchase made during the offer period prior to registration of your eligible Card in this program is not a qualifying purchase. Your registration of an eligible Card for this offer extends only to qualifying purchases on that Card. Corporate Cards, Gift Cards, and other American Express prepaid products are not eligible to enroll.
To be eligible for a $5 (CAD) statement credit, a qualifying purchase of at least $10 (CAD) in a single transaction, after taxes, must be charged to your registered Card at up to 10 different participating locations in Canada, during the offer period and subsequently posted to your account. A qualifying purchase of at least $10 (CAD) in a single transaction that is made directly at a different participating business or different location of the same participating business will qualify for one $5 (CAD) statement credit, up to a total of 10 statement credits or a maximum of $50 (CAD) in statement credits per registered Card during the offer period. One or more purchases made directly at the same business location will only be eligible to qualify for one $5 (CAD) statement credit.
Offer valid at participating Canadian locations. Online, in-app and phone transactions may not be eligible. Offer is non-transferable. You can earn a total maximum of $50 (CAD) in statement credits during the offer period.
Statement credit will be applied to your registered Card account within 90 days after 23/08/2021, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase(s). Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase(s) is returned/cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. Unless expressly stated otherwise in the offer, the following transactions are not qualifying purchases for this offer: the Merchant uses a third-party to sell their products or services, purchasing a merchant’s goods or services through concession stores in department stores, payment account or service of a third party, online aggregators that sell goods of other merchants or if the merchant category is otherwise not identified. Transactions processed through a card reader attached to a mobile phone may not be qualifying purchases for this offer. Purchases made through and the Resy mobile app will qualify for the offer. A statement credit does not constitute a payment and does not satisfy the requirement to pay the minimum due on a credit card. The Basic/Primary Cardmember must continue to make separate payments of at least the minimum due in accordance with the Cardmember agreement and account statement applicable to their registered Card account.
In the event that you replace your registered Card through Amex Bank of Canada or other participating American Express card issuer (as applicable) during the offer period, your participation in this offer will end and you will need to re-register for this offer. Cardmembers enrolled in a financial relief program may not be eligible for these offers.
For full terms that apply to registering your Card in the program, see Program Terms.

Working link to register American Express cards that didn't get the offer directly, including supplementary cards: ... uage=en-us
Link to register Scotiabank Amex cards only: ... fer=631320

If tapping your card and/or mobile pay does not work ("NO SUPPORTED APPLICATIONS")
  • First try Chip and Pin (some older terminals reject Amex tap but work this way)
  • If that does not work, try the old fashioned magnetic stripe swipe (some REALLY old terminals will reject both of the above but will work this way)

How to use Shop Small credits for any Canadian Charity

You can use Shop Small to make donations to your favourite charity/place of worship/etc. using Charitable Impact (a donor-advised fund platform).

1. Make an account on Charitable Impact.
2. Add $10 to your balance with as many cards as you'd like. You will receive $5 shop small credit for each.
3. Make donation via CHIMP. They will either direct deposit or send a cheque to your charity of choosing.
4. Consolidate your tax receipts on the platform, and claim a tax credit on your income taxes (making the net cost of each $10 donation between $1-3)

Pro-tip when making any donation with instant tax receipts: Add $0.01, $0.02, (increasing consecutively) to your donation so that it's obvious if you're audited that these are different donation transactions when using multiple AMEX Cards.

does authorized user cards have the amex offer applied to them as well or does it only apply for the primary user?

of course, we don't know the terms this time yet, but past experience.

Its a statement credit, you simply get $5 refunded every time you spend $10 on one of the small shop places.

I still have gift cards leftover from last time and I've got a couple of extra Amex cards now compared to last summer... If we're able to enroll all supplementary cards again, this is gonna get wild Face With Tears Of Joy

I hope the merchant fees get slashed, at least during this kind of promo... I can't imagine how many Amex transactions these "small merchants" are going to get... Just from the RFD community LOL

Maybe it's just me, but I found it endlessly frustrating to order from a store listed on the Amex site, only to arrive and find out they don't really accept Amex. This happened to me more often than not last time.
