Did you know that today is the first-ever Small Business Saturday? You can still sign up to receive a $25 credit on your American Express statement if you shop at a small business today, but it’s limited to the first 100,000 enrollees. I’m on my way out the door to check out a couple local boutiques for some unique Christmas gifts and hopefully get my $25 credit! That’s a free gift!
Also, Local First AZ has put together an excellent list of local businesses offering some major discounts during Buy Local Week, which runs from November 26 – December 5 (note that this is longer than Black Friday, because locals love you!).
