In other words, you can go to your FLGS and get $25 back!

You do have to register today.

Thanks for posting this. You can enroll through 11/24, but enrollments are limited so the earlier the better.

Two AmEx cards signed up and ready to go! FLGS is on the list but isn't open on Saturday, so the pet store will be getting some business instead.

When I typed in the name of my FLGS it didn't come up either, but when I typed in the town and looked at the map it was there.

Not a good sign when 3 of the top 5 results closest to my house are pizza places that have gone out of business (at the same location.)

Awesome, thanks for the heads-up! I'll be visiting family for Thanksgiving, so I can stop by Game HQ in OKC for a nice Christmas bonus!

To show up on the map the businesses have to register here:

https://www.americanexpress.com/us/small-business/Shop-Small...

Call up your local FLGS and make sure they do, and you can enjoy the $25 (per card!) credit. Registration for the businesses is only open until tomorrow so let them know right away.

Did this last year and it worked like a charm.

This year we're getting a total of $100 in statement credits. Each individual card, even if it's an additional card holder card, can be registered for a separate credit.

Same for the local store I want to use my credits with. Don't trust the search because you need to have an exact match and have no way of knowing how the business registered themselves. (it's not always the storefront name)

Thanks. I forgot about that. I think that I did the same thing. My FLGS is not on the list either. I know that they don't take Amex b/c the fees are higher than other ccs.

Does an online purchase from coolstuffinc.com qualify? I see that the terms of the AMEX offer require an "in-store transaction at a qualifying small business location." I know that Coolstuff has a brick-and-mortar location, but is it an "in-store transaction" if the purchase is made online and not physically inside the store? Thanks.

I can't find coolstuff on the Amex website either, so I am not sure that they are eligible.

Awesome! Our FLGS chain is on the list, although we'll be traveling that day so hopefully we can hit one up. If not I'm sure we'll find something.

I'm hoping it works at coolstuffinc.com again this year as CSI is my FLGS and I won't be able to visit there in person on Saturday...

Anybody know if you can use an AmEx prepaid card for this? Not seeing any information on the website regarding that.

EDIT: Never mind, it's in big, bold letters on the front page, "Corporate and prepaid cards are not eligible."

I sent a message to my favorite game store who was not on the list they just posted on Facebook, they are now on the list.

So now I know where I am shopping on Saturday
