Do you need to clear cookies as with cashback sites?



​sorry, hadn't noticed the reply. I don't do anything special for the easy fundraising site such as clearing cookies. For topcashback I do make sure that the cookies track (TCB site tells me if my adware blockers are affecting it). easy fundraising site works well and CB occurs once payment is done (ie with Amazon when parcel dispatched which is when they take the money from you).

I use The Giving Machine. Large choice of charities and you can select more than one, and the percentage to each, for every purchase through them

You are dead right there. Amazon pay their lower end staff peanuts … You are dead right there. Amazon pay their lower end staff peanuts (drivers, warehouse and customer service) and they definitely get monkeys. Some of the CS staff you simply can't understand, and Amazon know that. In the end you give up and go away. It's a real shame, two or three years ago their staff were exceptional, now they are just "special", as my Mum used to say.


Yeah I noticed this a few months ago when I had an issue.
Seems now they copy and paste a generic reply hoping you go away.
Thats live chat anyway, not had the pleasure of telephone support.

No of course not for free, but if i had said skills and was head of a charity i wouldn't take a fat cat salary either i would work for a very modest salary enough to get by because i wouldn't be in it for the money i would be doing it to help others, which is what charitys should be about

Some may not know this but Amazon will donate 5% of sales to charity here in the UK to support our lifeboats. FIVE PERCENT! That is a lot on every order and better than Amazon tax … Read more

When I tried to use the Macmillan link in a deal ( not the main deal link mind!) the mods here quickly removed the deal. Nice that people power has stemmed that - as shown with having this post.

They do. You read too much left wing garbage.

How about Amazon donate some money to the taxman?



How about Amazon donate some money to 'Save the Rainforest' as well? Thier packaging is absolutely ridiculous.

You can select which charity to donate to. I have the aspinal Foundation from Kent who are awesome guys. Unfortunately the Android app is terrible and hasn't been updated and I always forget to go to give as you live website.


That is a good website as well. Although, I think customers are more likely to visit cashback websites where applicable. Are you not able to bookmark the page when you land on Amazon? It will have the referral link in the URL.

MPs have not been deciding their own salary for quite some time now, it's down to an independent body. Would you turn down a salary increase if offered? I sure wouldn't!

RNLI waste lots of money, very disrespectful to their dedicated fund raisers.

They should be 100% funded by the lottery as a "good cause" rather than some of the ridiculous groups who get such funding from the lottery.


I couldn't agree more, I'm not going to get into the politics but it's amazing that as an Island we don't fully fund the lifeboat service.

im surprised hotukdeals allow this. this is how the site makes money. every time a deal is posted and you follow the link they make money. I think this post is technically against the rules because its a referral link
Free Beach Smart Safety Pack from the RNLI

To claim your free HOLD TIGHT, HAND UP! Safety Pack, just fill in this form with your details. Then look forward to these goodies landing on your doorstep within 10 working days:

Worth having if you have children that you'll be taking to the beach during summer. I got a pack last year as well and it has indeed come in handy.

It is probably worth pointing out to those just apply for everything on the basis of "well its free, innit?" won't find anything useful in the pack and would just be wasting RNLI resources by ordering it.
