Amex charges higher transaction fees than Visa or MC (that's why smaller places often don't take it). For a small merchant that could be close to 5%. They'd still be making $4.75.
it could also be set price like .50/transaction- either way, they are making a decent amount of the money

Any org that gets that act together (unlike Dan's chabad) can make a bunch of money

FWIU, Amex has cheaper processing than Visa or MC for organizations.

Re: Torah Treasures -AX small business promo in Miami & Lakewood
« Reply #66 on: August 03, 2014, 11:37:55 PM »
ax small business offer : buy $15 worth of merchandise in Torah Treasures in Miami Beach using your registered american express credit card & receive a credit from american express.

purchase can be used in Torah Treasures Lakewood for $10.50 worth of merchandise ($4.50 service allowance)
send collective order via fax (305) 673 3801 or email torahtreasures@atlanticbbn.net.
 or call (305)831-2403
Offer good thru month of August 2014
register your ax card at americanexpress.com/shopsmallaugust
Be careful when batch processing 3x transactions of the same amount at the same retailer one after the next. Especially since you'll be doing key ins. Could raise fraud alerts.
Might be worth doing $5 $5.xx....

Does anyone know of any other businesses in Miami, Philly, etc. that would be interested in participating, and would issue store credits for another location, or gift cards for their website?

going to be in Philly on Sunday.
I'm not so familiar with the kosher restaurant scene there.
Any kosher restaurants on the list?

Statement credit(s) will appear on the Card Memberís billing statement within 90 days after Aug 31, 2014, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about the qualifying purchase.

Seems like no credit will come until after August. And even then it can be up to 90 days.

 Anyone know if Amex is usually much quicker than that? How does it work with the yearly small business? I seem to recall that the credit came right away.

Last year it credited 4 days later.
