WHAT IS AMAZON SMILE?
Amazon Smile almost the same as Amazon.com. It has the same products, prices, and shopping features. The only difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the charitable organization of your choice.
HOW TO USE AMAZON SMILE?
When you first visit the site and log in with your regular Amazon account, you will be asked to choose a non-profit to support.
They have some big national non-profits featured called spotlighted charities. However, you can type any non-profit into the search bar just below the featured options.
Once you click the bright select button next to the non-profit of your choice, you should see a green notification like the one below:
REMEMBER TO COME BACK!
The only thing that makes Amazon Smile difficult is remembering to use the smile.amazon.com site when shopping!
So, don't forget to bookmark the page and come back anytime you're shopping online!
A BETTER WAY TO DONATE?
Amazon Smile is a great way to funnel a little extra cash back into your community while doing your holiday shopping. Keep in mind, however, that Amazon only donates 0.5% of your purchase.
Better than nothing? Yes.
Better than donating directly? No.
