During the first ever Small Business Saturday, American Express cardholders who signed up will get a $25 credit on their billing statement when they spend $25 or more at a small business today.
Even if you don't have an AMEX card, many local businesses are still offering deals and discounts. Here are five Small Business Saturday incentives I found:
|F.N.U.E. founder Halley Barney.|
F.N.U.E. (From Now Until Eternity) by Halley Barney is a romantic, whimsical jewelry line fashioned from sterling silver, 14-karat gold, 18-karat vermeil, and precious gemstones. Get a piece of her lovely collection, like the Cloud No. 3 bracelet ($195), for $20 off with the code "LOVE."
|Andrew Clark's Wishbone earrings, $15.|
|Katrin Reifeiss Spiderweb scarf, $47.50.|
AC AGATES designer Andrew Clark is known for unusual handcrafted jewelry. I discovered the Brooklyn craftsman's sterling silver and gemstone-adorned Wishbone earrings at a Shecky's Girls Night Out event and they're a steal for only $15 each.
|Wendy Mink Circle of Color Chain, $68.|
Katrin Reifeiss's gorgeous, hand-dyed Silk Spiderweb Scarves are on sale for $47.50!
|Tryst Arwen ring, $25.50.|
Be Fashion has great deals on designer dresses and accessories.
