amazon smile logoHere’s some great news for all customers. Now you can shop to your heart’s content knowing that Amazon has pledged to give 0.5% of the purchase price of everything you buy on AmazonSmile to Nickerson Lake Wilderness Preservation, Inc.  The prices are the same to you,  and it’s really easy. You just have to remember you have to shop with AmazonSmile, otherwise no charitable donations get made. Here’s how.

The AmazonSmile store looks exactly like except it has the AmazonSmile logo in the top left hand corner of the screen. Be sure to check for this to make sure you are shopping on the right site otherwise no charitable donations will be made.

Getting Started

To get started with Amazon Smile all you need to do is:

  • Click on the Welcome to Amazon Smile logo I’ve put at the top and the bottom of this post. This will take you through to the part of the Amazon site which has the AmazonSmile link
  • If you have not already registered with AmazonSmile or you are not currently signed in, you’ll  be able to see a black banner for AmazonSmile at the top of the  page. Click on visit AmazonSmile 
  •  Use your regular Amazon account details to sign in. You may be asked to nominate a charity, if you haven’t already done so, and then you just start shopping as normal. It’s that easy.

If you have previously registered with AmazonSmile and you are still signed in then the link will take you directly into the AmazonSmile website with no additional sign-in required.

You will know when you are on the AmazonSmile website because the top left hand corner of the website will have the AmazonSmile logo

How do I know if a product is eligible for a charitable donation?

Everytime you click on a product to have a closer look at it, Amazon will confirm that the product is eligible for the AmazonSmile donation which is worth 0.5% of the total purchase price. There are no extra costs to you. The prices are exactly the same as on the main Amazon site and there are literally millions and millions of eligible products.

do something good for nickerson lake while you shop!
