AmEx 2x points/cashback at small businesses

Postby kcm7 » Mon Oct 17, 2016 3:20 pm

American Express is giving 2x rewards on small-biz purchases for the rest of the year.

That beats just having it on small business Saturday, but at the same time, I don't intend to get an Amex, so no dog in this race. If I had an Amex, I'd probably use it as a way to get extra MR points at local restaurants and coffee shops, which would be nice, since that's where so much of my money goes.
Cards:

-Capital One Quicksilver
-Barclaycard Arrival (no AF)
- US Bank (no rewards)
-IHG

Doesn't really interest me, since most participating local stores are either:
1. Places I don't shop (like builder and architect firms)
2. Groceries (overpriced and inconvenient to the extent that I'd want, say, $10 back for spending $30)
3. Restaurants (I have CSP)

If I still had EDP or PRG, I might be more interested.
Warranties and sketchy merchants: Schwab Platinum
Price rewind: Costco
Travel insurance: Prestige, CSP
Perks: IHG, Hyatt
Rewards/Offers: Discover, Freedom, ED, BCE
Taxes/Misc: SPG

Limited value, might close: Arrival

Might add: First Tech, proper business card
