We are nearing the close of the 6th annual Small Business Saturday, a commerce holiday launched by American Express and intended to encourage Americans to celebrate and support local businesses in their communities.

The fact remains that small businesses are the cornerstone of the US economy. In fact over 50% of the working population in America work in a small business and that percentage continues to rise.

A lot of online small businesses and online services-based businesses also use the opportunity to offer steep discounts on their products and services and to lure new customers. Unfortunately, because of all the traffic, their sales and promotions get drowned out.

To help out, here is a last minute listing of Small Business links and sales that you can take advantage of tonight and later this weekend. A lot of businesses do not stop at the end of they day and offer online options thru Cyber Monday.
