What is AmazonSmile and how does it work?
AmazonSmile is Amazon’s charity site that gives a percentage of your purchase to a designated charity. All of the normal Amazon items are listed, you just need to use a different URL when you start. Your shopping experience remains the same, the only difference is that every time you shop using that specific URL, Amazon donates to your chosen charity.
How much will Amazon donate?
AmazonSmile automatically donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to your chosen charity when you shop on smile.amazon.co.uk.
Will AmazonSmile charge me any extra?
Not at all! The brilliant thing is shopping with AmazonSmile doesn’t cost you, or the Friary, any extra.
How do I sign up?
If you already have an Amazon account, you can begin shopping instantly. All you need to do is visit smile.amazon.co.uk rather than the normal link.
Please bear it in mind the next time you are doing your online shopping and let your friends and family know – it’s a great way for you to support us without having to donate any money yourself.
How to get started with AmazonSmile:
- Go to https://smile.amazon.co.uk/.
- Log into your normal Amazon account.
- Type ‘the Friary’ into the search box where it says ‘start by picking your charity’.
- Choose the Friary.
- You should receive an email from Amazon, which means you’re ready to shop and support us at the same time.
- Begin shopping knowing you’re helping the Friary too!
It’s very easy and will help our fundraising every time you shop. If you get into the habit now we’ll benefit even more in the run up to Christmas with all those extra purchases!
