American Express has brought back its annual Shop Small campaign for 2022, which runs from 2-31 August 2022 at more than 3,500 businesses across Singapore.
Registration opens from 2 August 2022, and registered cardholders can save S$3 off every purchase of at least S$10, up to 5X per card. You can register multiple American Express cards to enjoy the offer multiple times, and there’s no cap on the maximum number of registrations.
Even better, Shop Small is also open to DBS and UOB AMEX cardholders, who are normally excluded from AMEX Offers.
|❓ What are AMEX Offers?|
AMEX Offers are opportunities to earn bonus miles or Membership Rewards points, or discounts in the form of statement credits. These are available to Platinum, True Cashback, and KrisFlyer cardholders, and can be found in the “Offers” section of the AMEX app or web portal.
Registration is required, and some offers may be targeted.

|DBS/UOB-issued AMEX: |
From 2 August 2022 onwards, cardholders can register their American Express cards for the Shop Small 2022 promotion, which runs till 31 August 2022.
Registered cardholders will receive a S$3 credit every time they spend S$10 or more in a single transaction in-store at a participating merchant, up to a maximum of five times. This cap applies on a per card basis, so if you register two AMEX cards for example, you’ll get a total of up to S$30 back.
There is no restriction on the maximum number of registrations, so go ahead and register all the cards you have- doing so doesn’t deprive anyone else of a slot.
Credits should appear on your card statement within five business days of qualifying spend, but may take up to 90 days from the offer end date. In my personal experience, these post very quickly.
Shop Small participating merchants

The full list of participating merchants can be found here.
Despite the name, Shop Small isn’t all about mom-and-pop establishments. Read through the list of participating merchants, and you’ll spot heavy-hitters such as:
- Best Denki
- Burger King
- Harvey Norman
- Hai Di Lao
- Popular Bookstore
- Tim Ho Wan
|⚠️ Check participating locations!|
|Not all locations of the aforementioned chains may be participating; be sure to double check against the official list.|
Nothing says support small businesses like having a Whopper at Burger King, and then buying a mouse at Harvey Norman, but hey, I’m not complaining.
This offer is only valid for in-store transactions; online and in-app purchases are explicitly excluded.
The sheer variety of participating merchants make this pretty much a free S$15 per card- just don’t forget to register before spending in-store.
Shop Small stacks with whatever other AMEX promotions are currently ongoing; for example, Napoleon Food & Wine Bar is a Shop Small merchant, as well as an AMEX Love Dining partner. You can enjoy both discounts according to their individual T&Cs.
Don’t forget that registration only opens from 2 August onwards, so be sure to check the AMEX app later.
