Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday, where American Express, Facebook, Google, Twitter, and other major corporations are encouraging consumers to shop at small businesses, in recognition of their contributions to local communities and to the national economy.
Most merchants big enough to offer cash back are probably bigger than what you and I would consider “small” businesses. So there won’t be many stores we can offer you cash back for in honor of this event… but we at QR still recognize the importance of small businesses, so I’m going to ask you guys to help me out:
If you have an eBay or Etsy store, if you sell Mary Kay or Tupperware, or if you have any other kind of small business with a website, or you have a friend or neighbor who does, please post the link in a comment here! Tell me and your fellow QR members a little about the site, the products, or the owner.
And I’ll ask those who read this post: please take a look at these small businesses and consider supporting them with a purchase on Small Business Saturday and throughout the holiday season. You won’t earn cash back from QR but you’ll help out a fellow QR member or one of their family or friends in what continues to be a challenging economy.
Going first: My mom, who is disabled with a rare spine problem, sells handmade jewelry on eBay. Here is her store, Louisiana Beads. Shipping is included in all of her prices.
