Has anyone else noticed that American Express has plastered its name all over Small Business Saturday? I find this ironic as I heard many small business owners complain about American Express. Complaints against AMEX include high fees to merchants on credit card transactions and AMEX takes the side of the cardholder in almost every dispute. Given American Express’s history with small businesses, their backing of Small Business Saturday seems more about cajoling small businesses into accepting their credit card than helping them.
