Support the RNLI when you shop at Amazon

232
Found 8th Jul 2013
When you purchase from Amazon via the link from the RNLI website, Amazon will donate a minimum of 5% of the value of all orders to the RNLI.
Obviously not a deal that will benefit you directly, but you never know one day you may need some help at sea or in a flood

Excellent, the amount of money I have spent on there, wish I had know about this before!

nice one. thanks op

Excellent, bookmark updated

Good stuff - thanks

Thank you.

This HAS to get hot, these guys run on donations alone, and they do a chuffing incredible amount of good work. Vote this up right now, if you've ever been (or not) to the beach, done scuba, canoeing, etc etc!

where's the deal?

Great post and voted Hot. Thanks O.P.

The deal is that one of the most worthwhile charities in the UK will benefit when you buy from Amazon.

When they pull you out of the sea by your arms after you got into difficulty, you'll soon know where the deal is sonny!

The deal is that you can give to charity without spending any more money than you already will. So you get more for your money. Hence, deal.

Hot hot hot. I really wish I'd known about this before - given I spend half my income on Amazon and donate regularly to RNLI anyway. These guys are seriously hardcore - I'm a sailer/kayaker/scuba diver and the RNLI will go out in conditions where the rest of us stay tucked up in bed. Such hazardous conditions but they go anyway and save so many lives.

Annoyingly I sent a order not 5 mins before finding this. Duly noted for the future. Thx

The Groutch is right - its not a deal - its a charity thread. Most charity threads are moved to Misc so don't be surprised (or offended) if the mods move this......

Having just been at sea for 7 days, I have witnessed how harsh conditions are. These brave people do a fantastic job. I will now make an excuse to buy something on amazon.

This is a great deal. I have just spent £200+ on amazon I wish I had seen this yesterday then I would have donated an extra £10+ to the RNLI, a charity I raised over £100 for earlier this month.

I think that it's a deal because it adds value to your purchase ie you buy a £10 Blu-ray and get a free 50p donation to a fab charity.
There is added value so surely it's a deal.
Bloody mean if it does get moved to misc...I love misc but it'll get more exposure in deals and more exposure means more donations.

The cynic in me thinks that if it does get moved to misc it might be due to HUKD not wanting to lose out on affiliate revenue from Amazon.
I hope it stays in deals.

amazing I wish I 'd know about this before !!!
Please leave here I would never have found it in 'Misc'

If it hasn't shipped just cancel and reorder!

Amazon will get tax relief on these donations so pay even less tax!

Great find

I would say this constitues a deal.
You are getting the ability to offer a monetary donation through no extra cost to yourself.

Belongs here where it will be seen. Also - share it to your FB people.

fantastic, this is double the rate offered by givingabit

If the RNLI doesn't float your boat (oh stop)... lots of schools and charities have a similar set up.

Voted hot.

Is there a link to click through from HMRC so they'll pay their tax instead?

Where and how to find out which ones/how to sign up?
Anyone know?

Thanks OP! I will try and remember to use this from now. Less money in Amazon's pockets and more to charity

Macmillan Cancer Support do a similar thing:

Instead of starting a new thread thought I would just mention it here

great ty op a very worthwhile charity

Great charity, well worthwhile. Thank you for posting OP, much appreciated. Hopefully a little extra money will go the RNLI's way as a result of this and a few extra lives can be saved. One of the most under-rated charities out there IMO!

Great. Thanks. RNLI and Salvation Army, only 2 charities I`ll give to.

This won't go down well with HUKD, they'll be giving all their precious revenue and commissions over to a charity!!!

Excellent find, this should go Red Hot for such a good cause!!

Some would argue that being a vegetarian is a disability. So having a charity is only the next step.(_;)
