What is AmazonSmile and How does it work?
AmazonSmile is a program run by Amazon that allows shoppers to support their favorite charities. When you shop at AmazonSmile, 0.5% of your total is donated to your selected charity when you purchase qualifying products.
In order to use AmazonSmile, you need to do 2 things:
- Click on the button in the AmazonSmile box above (or click here). ConnectPointe will be automatically selected as your charity, and then you just shop as normal.
- In the future, you need to visit smile.amazon.com instead of the regular Amazon link in order for the support to go to Connect Pointe. So the next time you shop, you can come back here and follow the link again, or you can bookmark the AmazonSmile link in your browser. Or when you visit the regular Amazon site, it may ask you if you want to use AmazonSmile, so make sure to follow their prompts to do that. You’ll know you’ve done it correctly when you see this:
Note that it says AmazonSmile, instead of just Amazon,and that it lists Connect Pointe as the charity you’re supporting (right below the search area).
