This offer is a no-brainer from American Express, with them launching a (renewed) promotion for August encouraging cardholders to use their American Express cards (almost all Amex cards, not just Amex-issued) to purchase at small businesses, by registering your card at amexnetwork.com.au/shopsmall/ and then spending $20 or more in a transaction to receive a $5 statement credit. You can receive up to 10 credits in this way.
The full terms are here and the offer is available to the first 50,000 cardholders who register their card numbers in the promotion, so get in there early and see if you can make use of it.
