(WXYZ) - FedEx is giving away $1 million in gift cards today.
It's part of an effort to support 'Small Business Saturday,' a day dedicated to driving shoppers to local, independently-owned merchants. 'Small Business Saturday' is November 26, the day after 'Black Friday'.
The free American Express gift cards – each worth $25 – will be distributed through www.facebook.com/FedEx starting at 1:00 p.m. on a first come, first serve basis.
In addition to the gift card giveaway, FedEx is also offering small businesses a discount on online print orders and free online tools to promote their companies.
