Update: The boosted offer has now ended (29th June 2018)
Do you shop at Amazon? Did you know Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchases value to Banchory Men’s Shed? You just need to use “Amazon Smile”.
And between 15th June and 29th June, Amazon are celebrating the successful launch of Amazon Smile six months ago by tripling the contribution – to 1.5%
To use Amazon Smile, go to the Amazon Smile start page for the Banchory Men’s Shed. This is:
Or just go to smile.amazon.co.uk and select your chosen charity.
First time through you will be asked to confirm your login details as normal, but after that if you always go to the Amazon Smile page (bookmark it) instead of your normal Amazon start page, then BMS will received 0.5% of your pre-VAT purchase price, or 1.5% for the offer fortnight.
You will be asked whether you want to install the “Amazon Assistant” to “make the most of Amazon Smile”. We suggest you decline to install it unless you familiarise yourself first with its privacy aspects. We can vouch that the site works perfectly well without using “Amazon Assistant”.
Once you have logged in via Amazon Smile, the rest of your shopping experience is identical with your normal Amazon shopping, just that you will also be helping us.
