American Express Helps Small Businesses Stretch Every Dollar with Savings on Everyday Expenses

    - American Express expands Small Business Savings program to provide
    discounts and savings to Canadian Small Business Owners -

    MARKHAM, ON, June 10 /CNW/ - American Express has drastically expanded
its Business Savings Program as part of its aggressive push into the small
business market, giving Business Gold Rewards Card and Business Platinum Card
members discounts and savings on everyday business expenses. ClubLink Canada,, Food & Wine, HP, MDG,, OneConnect Services Inc., Toronto
Board of Trade and Travel + Leisure join existing industry leading partners,
including Delta Hotels and Hertz in this unique program.
    Unlike most small business credit card savings programs, the Business
Savings Program eliminates the need for coupons or program enrolment and
provides automatic savings in a wide range of categories from well-known
brands. And Cardmembers continue to earn Membership Rewards points on their
purchases that they can use to reinvest back into their business.
    "Small businesses are pressed for time and weary of short-term offers
that require coupons or program enrollment, the Business Savings Program
delivers simple, automatic and substantial discounts just by using the Card,"
said Howard Grosfield, Vice President & General Manager of Small Business
Services, American Express Canada & International. "American Express is proud
to extend our breadth of Business Savings Partners and deliver thousands of
dollars of savings to our small business Cardmembers every year."
    Business Savings is a benefit embedded within the Card. American Express
Business Gold Rewards Card and Business Platinum Card members simply need to
use their card for purchases with any Business Savings Partner to take
advantage of discounts.
    "With significant discounts at multiple partners, business owners can
spend less on their overhead costs, and use the savings to reinvest in
themselves, their business or their employees," said Grosfield.
