June 23 Update: Amex Shop Small promotion returns tomorrow, potential to make money with Best Western’s promotions & Dubai to open up on July 7
American Express’ Shop Small promotion returns tomorrow! The ever popular promotion sees cardmembers in select Canadian cities earn a $5 credit or 10x points each time they spend $10 at a participating Shop Small merchant. Those merchants are most of the ones that are not nationwide chains or major retailers. These are your mom and pop shops, local chains etc. The offers will launch on June 24 and in my email it states that I can earn up to $50 in statement credits. That means the $5 or 10x points will be awarded on 10 Shop Small purchases.

If you are unfamiliar with WestJet’s Member Exclusive Fares they are basically WestJet’s fixed grid redemption option. If you are familiar with Aeroplan’s Classic Flight rewards chart, Amex’s Fixed Points for Travel chart, the RBC Avion chart and so on that is what Member Exclusive Fares are. The primary reason for wanting to update member exclusives is exactly what is stated on WestJet’s site – to improve the process. Right now the booking process for Member Exclusive Fares doesn’t follow their typical booking flow as if you were buying a revenue ticket or even just wanting to redeem WestJet dollars towards a revenue ticket…
