Donate to ACA for free when using Amazon
« on: December 29, 2021, 03:09:14 pm »
Hey All,

For several years, I have listed ACA as my "charity" when I use Amazon.  By signing up for Amazon Smile (it is free), Amazon will donate 0.5% of what I spend on eligible purchases at Amazon. Once you sign up, you are automatically logged into Amazon Smile in the future so sign up and then forget about it. 

This is via Amazon and not some third party group and since I shop Amazon anyway, I feel this is an easy way to send a few buck each year to ACA without me doing anything extra and without costing me anything.  My portion is not much overall but I figure if a bunch of ACA members sign up, it could maybe add up to several thousand dollars each quarter.  If you prefer to donate to another charity instead, there is a huge list of them.

Here is some info if you care to do it also:  https://smile.amazon.com/gp/chpf/pd/ref=smi_se_saas_lpd_spd

Happy New Years!

Maybe I need to step away from this for a few minutes.  John, I’m not mad at you, I’m mad at Amazon.

I’d love to change my charity, but I can’t find the list. The details page hotlink just takes me to the public home page with no obvious link to Smile.  If I go through my login, the search only shows a couple hundred charities, and I can’t find AC with the search.

When I tested software for a living, at least I knew where to send the problem ticket.

Ok, re-login on Smile, go down a level or two, go sideways once, now I found it and the search works.  JFC.

I tired turning off my computer and restating.  Worked after I did that.   ;D
