Some may not know this but Amazon will donate 5% of sales to charity of your choice. FIVE PERCENT!

Been posted a few times before, I just feel like this need to be reminded again.

Simply cancel the order with Amazon. Click on the charity link (you want to support) and find a link to amazon on that page. Click on the link and buy whatever you have been planning to buy in the first place.

I didn't realise they did this over here. On the US site it's much easier to setup (it's done through the Amazon website) and the list of charities appears to be endless



just remember that this 5% they donate will be tax deductible. so less 5% to the state.

That's Amazon Smile - Amazon give only 0.5 % instead of 5% to the charity.

Of course they will deduct the money, the same as if they pay to HUKD for referring users to their website. Not sure what you're trying to say. oO

With 63 orders in the past 6 months. I think i'll start using it to donate to RNLI

Happy to help

I'm saying that the 5% which would've been received by the state in tax. Will instead be given to a charity. So based on how much tax they paid last year potentially £600,000 will be denied to us, the taxpayer.

​I'm saying the money is outright denied to us, the taxpayer. It's not part of a referral payment from their marketing budget which is accounted for in their pricing. This costs them nothing. But denies us. Based on how much tax they did pay last year, which was a pittance to start with a further £600,000 will be denied to us.

Every single business in the UK will deduct the money they'll give to charity. Are you trying to convince anyone not to support any charity (or business that will give them money) because the government won't get as much tax from them?

As far as i was aware they dont pay tax anyway so the state isnt going to lose much.
In fact the charities will probably take more from this than the govt will in tax.

It's not denied to you. You can actually take the money from Amazon and give it to charity of your choice.

...or don't use the link and let Amazon to decide what to do with it. To pay more tax, for example.

It means they take it from us (to give to charity) or pay us. There's no choosing on their part. We are the ones in this instance choosing to deny ourselves the money.

​You are right they don't pay much but based on what they have paid it would be £600,000 we lose. So the charitys can take out ad's in the media? employee street muggers? pay their ceo's?

I'm sorry, I'm giving up. If you don't like the idea, simply shop at Amazon without using any of those links.

Do you realise some charities are funded by central or local government. Where is this money coming from?

A: Out of accounted for budgets. Just like defence and foreign aid.
B: This will be almost zero by 2020.

"B" is sad. It means we'll have to help them even more.

So it's like cashback sites like Quidco, except the 'cashback' goes to the charity of your choice.

Exactly!

They could just pay their staff a decent wage

Which charity? HMRC?

It has to be HMRC. NHS is going to get all the savings from EU contributions pretty soon, LOL (remember the bus?)

I only see a link to their Amazon wishlist, not an affiliate link.

If you scroll down to their shop online paragraph - there's an easy fundraising link you go through there to send amazon cashback their way.

I can't find the amazon link on their page, just a wishlist?

EDIT: Doh, answered since I last refreshed. Unfortunately that looks like it will hijack all your potential cashback from quidco/topcashback, not just the amazon stuff?

A post which isn't a deal in the deals section! Watch this end up on the top posts of all time as the mods disregard the rules :P

Nice reminder, but wrong section
