As the premier sponsor in the "Shop Small Gift Card" program, FedEx will give away for free 30,000 Shop-Small(SM) American Express gift cards, each worth $25, to consumers through a Facebook promotion leading up to Small Business Saturday on November 26. Ten thousand additional cards will be distributed directly to FedEx customers. The contribution means more money in the cash registers of locally-owned independent businesses. In addition to the gift card giveaway, FedEx Office(R) is serving as the official print sponsor of Small Business Saturday, helping independent retailers and other small businesses grab attention on Small Business Saturday and throughout the holiday season. Beginning October 4, small business owners can visit www.facebook.com/shopsmall to access Small Business Saturday posters that can be printed via the FedEx Office(R) Print Online application at a special 20 percent discount. The offer can be utilized on all online print orders through November 26, giving small business owners even more savings as they prepare for the busy holiday season.
