By Jim Donovan: As the premier sponsor in the “Shop Small Gift Card” program, FedEx today will give away for free 30,000 Shop-Small American Express gift cards, each worth $25, to consumers through a Facebook promotion leading up to Small Business Saturday on November 26.
I will say that I did take advantage of this last year, and it indeed worked. I shopped at a small store in Old City and got $25 off my purchase using the gift card.
Small Business Saturday helps to drive holiday sales for local businesses at a time when customer demand remains among their biggest challenges. Shoppers can use the gift cards at independent/small businesses.
Shoppers will be able to obtain their free $25 gift cards from the FedEx Facebook brand page beginning today, November 1. For a limited time, shoppers can register and share the offer with friends with a few simple clicks. By providing a mailing address, the cards will be shipped to the first qualifying 30,000 consumers in time for them to get out and shop on November 26, Small Business Saturday. Only one Shop Small Gift Card will be sent to each Facebook ID that registers. There are no consumer fees of any kind associated with the Shop Small Gift Card.
