Deal Details

http://smile.amazon.com/

  • Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice.
  • AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same Amazon Prime benefits.
  • Support your charitable organization by starting your shopping at smile.amazon.com.

Not a deal I know, but sooner people enroll, the more it helps the cause. Trying to spread the word around.

It looks like you have to click through the smile.amazon.com/ [amazon.com] link each time you want your money to be donated :-( I made my bookmark the link to make it a little easier

You can search for a charity, they have a lot more. Make a Wish appears to be one of them.

Amazon is amazing for doing this! Huge thumbs up!hug

But .5% is $1 for every $200 spent. So if your item is < $200 you are donating less than a dollar.

Please consider donating $5 directly to charity right now if you were thinking of getting some unneeded item just to be helpful.

I believe he was referring to those going make a purchase they were otherwise not looking to make strictly out of good feels for the program. They would be better off giving a 5-er to the charity directly rather than buying something on impulse to support their charity of choice.

Considering they're in the black pre-tax (207mm) for the current 3 quarters of the fiscal year and slightly into the red after-tax (-27mm), perhaps they see contributing 0.5% will have a positive (or at the very least neutral) tax effect. It's good publicity for Amazon and great for causes, and, in any case, you're right. 0.5% is huge for any retailer that depends on volume.
