FedEx is gave away $1 million dollars in gift cards today.

It was part of an effort to support "Small Business Saturday" on November 26th.

The day is dedicated to driving shoppers to local, independently-owned merchants.

The free American Express gift cards - each worth $25 - were available through Fed Ex's facebook page starting at 1 p.m. The gift cards were available on a first come, first served basis, and were all distributed in less than 2 hours.
