    Amazon Smile help out your fav charity

    I have a love hate relationship with Amazon. Blood convent but devious money grabbing tax avoiding..

    Etc.

    Anyway.. if you want to support a charity use https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/chpf/homepage?orig=%2F

    I've been supporting a kidney charity, but the dropdown menu has a good fair few charities listed.

    Doesn't cost you any more, or less. And to be honest I've found some Amazon stuff a rip off and cheaper on eBay or an independent shop online.!

    Don't like/use ebay but as you say Amazon is very convienent at times.

    I'll check your charity support link out, thanks for highlighting it.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    There are over 2,000 UK charity's on Amazon Smile.

    The problem comes when 5 of your own chronic illnesses are supported through the smile scheme what do you do!

    I'm surprised my rare neuro one is on the list you never know Nuke your's might be on there too

    I agree, I have gone for a local one myself. Set it up to give to whichever charity you have the most support for. The other way is through someone like TopCashback and get that paid to you for distribution to your charities or direct to them if you choose the right way.

    I think I might have fouled up the last couple of times forgetting to do it. I’ve had a good £400 since joining and that’s supporting non amazon companies, some of which are far better deals.

    I used Quidco. Often cheaper than Amazon, who like many other platforms has become a cheap reseller of budget Chinese goods (which are filthy cheap from the 'Chinese Ebay Aliexpress (Alibaba). Some of the markups on Amazon are nearer to 1000% markup than a bargain!
