For over a decade now, American Express has held a "Small Business Saturday" event on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, spotlighting small businesses throughout the U.S. during the busy holiday shopping period.
This year, Amex cardholders will enjoy a one-time $5 statement credit by using their enrolled eligible card to make a single purchase of $50 or more at eligible U.S. small businesses by Nov. 25. Terms apply.

By using Amex's small business map, cardmembers can find plenty of applicable places of business to spend their $50. For New Yorkers, for example, that includes countless restaurants, plus places like City Acres Market grocery store and even the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.
Remember that you'll have to make a single purchase of $50 or more; if your $50 is broken up into several transactions, you won't get your statement credit. If you're dining out, that probably means bringing a companion; if you're shopping, make sure you spend enough to cross that threshold.
There are plenty of qualifying Amex cards that are worth a spot in your wallet; here are three of our favorites: The Platinum Card® from American Express, one of Amex's most premium offerings; the American Express® Gold Card, with 4 points per dollar at restaurants (plus takeout and delivery in the U.S.); and the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express, with 3% cash back on U.S. online retail purchases (up to $6,000 per year in purchases, then 1%.)
One or any of these cards offer ample rewards when shopping at small businesses. If you take advantage of Amex's Small Business Saturday promo, you'll get an extra $5 in your pocket for the holidays.

Here we go again...the best of the art world (not to mention the fashion world, culinary world, luxury brands, celebrities, and partygoers) descend on Miami for Miami Art Week, which includes a week long schedule of incredible art exhibits, parties, and events that are sprinkled around the Magic City. A lot has happened here since last year’s Art Week. Miami has welcomed more new high-profile residents to its shores - including Jeff Bezos, Shakira, and Lionel Messi. The level of cuisine has grown exponentially, as Miami now has 11 Michelin-rated restaurants with more on the way. As a native Miamian, I am blown away by the level of culture and sophistication Miami has achieved. Miami’s economy is still booming, with people flocking to the city both to live and to visit - and the attraction of Miami will be on full display during Art Week.

It's one thing to book a lie-flat business-class seat to travel overseas with some added comfort. What might qualify as "next-level," though, is doing so on a private jet that will fly you around the world, stopping on every continent (excluding Antarctica) along the way.
One of the biggest impediments to recovery so far has been a lack of airline capacity and competition. Conditions are gradually improving, which is expected to benefit travellers as the year progresses, but the concern remains regarding the lack of available seats on services between Australia and Europe, via the Middle East.
This past June, my wife and I, along with two of our children, flew from our home in India to the eastern United States to see family and visit Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla. The trip included three domestic flights over five days on Frontier Airlines: Philadelphia to Orlando, Orlando to Atlanta, and Atlanta back to Philadelphia. The total cost for four people on three flights was an affordable $939.75, including a $99.99 “Discount Den” membership on Frontier. (We also spent $1,269.52 on tickets at Universal.) But our first flight was delayed and eventually canceled, and Frontier’s staff told us the next available flight was three or four days later — too close to our return flight to India. We were given a QR code at the Philadelphia airport to file for a refund, which we did for all three flights. But all we got was an email with a credit worth $339.92 and good for three months, plus four additional messages with a $100 voucher for each of us. Since Frontier does not operate in India, the credit and vouchers are useless. I fought Frontier through my Discover card, but lost. (Meanwhile, Universal reimbursed us in full.) Can you help?
