Small businesses make up more than 99.7% of all employers in the U.S, no wonder they are often referred to as “the heart of the American economy.” Last year, American Express® introduced Small Business Saturday and this year it continues on Saturday November 26th.

Ditch the long lines at the big box stores and join us on Small Business Saturday by shopping in La Jolla Village, a great way to show support and get some of your holiday shopping done.

Walk into any of these businesses and chances are you will be greeted by the owner.

To help you celebrate Small Business Saturday American Express® is offering a one-time $25 statement credit when you use your registered or linked American Express® Card on Small Business Saturday with a purchase of $25 or more at a small business.
