    Amex shop small back 1st Nov 16 at 1:57 PM
    Hi Guys just had e mail from Amex, shop small is back from 3rd Dec to 18th, spend 10 get 5 back?
    I have saved to my main card, but cannot recall how to save to wife's, , both platinum?
    You used to register the cards before, but save to card now.
    Any advice welcome.
    Also,has anyone had e mail?
    Does mbna apply to this promo this time?

    Don't Amex issued supplementary card users have an Amex login where they can save to card?

    I used to have an Amex issued card and my partner's supplementary card was linked to her own login (she could only see her own transactions, nothing else).

    Edit: Yes, they can create their own account:

    "Yes Supplementary Cardmembers can participate in Shop Small. They simply need to create an Online Account (if they haven't already done so) and then register their Card for the offer. Please note that the offer is linked to the Card not to the Account, so every Supplementary Cardmember must follow these steps." https://www.amexshopsmall.co.uk/shop-small-for-shoppers/faqs/

    I will have to set up online banking for OH? .
    In the past, there was no need as you could just register any amex card for Shopsmall, and supplementary ones too.Never use the Plats, ( except for this), always use Mbna, which only one card can be registered, as the card numbers are the same, unlike plats;.

    Just registered MBNA, ok and received confirmation e-mail.

    Trying to set up online a/c for wifes card,using your second link is proving difficult.
    as it says it is already registered when trying to register a new online A/c? obviously when I opened the A/c years ago.?but. I only did one online set up, in my name,it's a joint a/c.?
    So saving to her card is not possible via this, without finding a way to set up online for her somehow?.

    Done wifes using your first enrolment link, ok,and had confirmation e-mail, same as the other two.
    See what happens when I come to use them. Had no problems in the past.
    where did you get the enrolment link from, for future reference?
    Cheers

    The problem is that Shop Small supports small local businesses and that's a good thing. But my problem is that I wouldn't buy from the local business which are supporting Shop Small. Perhaps only a bicycle shop but I don't really need anything for my bicycle.

    Pubs, chippys, restaurants and even newsagents are all perfect for this.

    yes, it works with Barclaycard Amex (mine is registered).

    It's once per business (as listed on the map) per card. If you have an additional cardholder (with different card number), both can be registered. Useful for restaurants as you can split the bill!

    You can shop at an unlimited number of businesses.

    We use it yearly to eat out for a few days at new restaurants in the area by doing this.

    not wanting to sound negative but is it only businesses on the map?
    there is literally nothing I could use this offer for if so.
    do businesses get added nearer the time?

    that's absolutely awesome, there's a few businesses in my village i'll probably use it at and i'll remember that split the bill trick that could come in handy
    I take it this is a promotion they usually do once a year?

    Same as me, not a lot to choose from.

    It's local businesses in your local area which are supporting the offer which are listed on the map.

    For other areas, just insert the area or postcode in the Search box.

    There are some additions this year. One of them is my dentist, which raises two questions:
    1. Do I need dental treatment?
    2. Should I go to a dentist who takes AmEx and so is probably more expensive than others?

    There is a takeaway near me listed on the map, which has a big sign at the counter that says they don't take amex. I reported it last year, but still listed.

    Across the country there must be hundreds of thousands that take Amex.
