Shop on Amazon to save lives - minimum 5% of all order values donated to the RNLI

Found 15th Jul 2015
Seeing as a lot more orders will be placed on Amazon today by fellow HUKDers, I thought it would be good to remind people that a minimum 5% of your purchase value will be donated to the RNLI (via the 'Get Deal' link).

Was about to order the £19 Fire TV Stick without going via the link - but now £1 is going to the RNLI.

Thanks for posting. Will do it via the link. Cheers

Should be on all Amazon deals.

Good reminder OP, the RNLI is a critical service/charity for this Isle.
Life savers working in extreme/difficult conditions should always be supported imo.

Always use this. Great reminder.

Just a shame they don't also pay 20% to the taxman

Rest assured, you're paying VAT on Amazon purchases at 20%.

Amazon have also recently decided they're kind enough to pay some corporation tax...

It's "the some" I have the issue with... They reclaim the vat on their purchase cost..

Didn't hotukdeals get some of this referal money or was that sorted last time.

If I'd have known that earlier than MacMillan would've done well. Can't cancel and reorder as the deals have expired. Will save this for next time though.

Thanks

Good reminder, I've seen it looong time ago but could never remember how to find it again.

If our government are stupid enough to leave loopholes that allow this then fairplay to them, no one volunteers to pay tax! besides any extra money they pay in tax comes out of the consumers pockets at the end of the day via product price increases, our government will only waste it on massive donations abroad or undeserved MP pay rises anyway

I prefer to have cheaper items from Amazon, rather than tax paying for an MP's second home

Quite correct, but the general public should not be funding the RNLI or any Air Ambulance services at all via charity donations. 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.

Although I agree, remember the same point flips around. 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!

Do you have a link to the thread?

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

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.

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