If lightning-fast shipping, awesome streaming services and competitive prices weren’t enough of a reason for you to be obsessed with shopping on Amazon, then here you go: Amazon Smile.
Amazon donates 0.5% of your purchase to the organization of your choice whenever you shop at smile.amazon.com. Thousands and thousands of items are eligible, and set-up is super simple:
- Visit smile.amazon.com
- Select “Junior League of San Antonio Inc.” as your charitable organization
- Shop and check out as you normally do!
- Be sure to visit smile.amazon.com every time you shop (not the regular Amazon URL).
At the beginning of January, $217 had been donated via Amazon Smile over a just a two-month period. What could that number be if we encouraged everyone we knew to make this simple change?
So, next time that Amazon box greets you at your door, you can smile knowing someone else is benefitting from your purchase. And if your husband complains about you buying another pair of shoes, just tell him it was for charity.
