American Express offers specials through Four Square pretty regularly called Small Business Saturday. All you have to do is have an American Express card and a smartphone with the Four Square app. Then you spend $10 and American Express credits your account $10. It’s pretty simple. Dan and I have found this is a great way to try out new local restaurants and explore our town. And sometimes it’s just a great way to spend a Saturday. Here’s what we did today for small business Saturday.
We started off with subs at the Italian Place. Each sub is $6.50 totaling $13.00 for two. We paid $3.00 with the American Express + Four Square deal. To all the Logan locals: you really need to stop by the Italian Place some time. Their subs are the best in town! Seriously though.
Our next stop was Cafe Ibis just across the street. We both got 20 oz mochas; I got a stroopwafel and Dan got baklava. Total cost after the American Express deal, $0.22. Total cost for our date, $3.22.
While at Cafe Ibis we Instagrammed any and everything possible. Here are the pictures we took.
And the best part of all was the warm welcome Carmen and Misha gave us when we returned home. Here they are playing with the reflection of Dan’s phone.
The second best part of the day was that Dan let me win a few games of Super Smash Brothers after we played with the cats. Super Smash Brothers = awesome. All-in-all, today was awesome thanks to American Express and Four Square for giving us an awesome day date for just $3.22 (plus the gas to get there).
