Add Some Hope to Your Shopping Cart on Amazon Prime Day

Jul 11, 2018

It’s almost here – Christmas in July, otherwise known as Amazon Prime Day is Monday, July 16th. Last year, Amazon’s July Prime Day set a new sales record for the company. The online retailer says sales last July were higher than Black Friday or Cyber Monday 2016, “making it the biggest day ever in Amazon history.”

Are you getting ready to do some online shopping? Did you know that you can help The Salvation Army by making your purchases through Amazon Smile? For every online purchase, Amazon Smile will donate 0 .5% to the Salvation Army. All you have to do is designate us - The Salvation Army Eastern Michigan -- as your charity of choice.

It is hard to believe that something so easy can also do so much good! Amazon Smile – is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. You’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. 

Tens of millions of products are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for donation” on their product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.

The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges. From time to time, they even offer special, limited time promotions that increase the donation amount on one or more products or services or provide for additional donations to charitable organizations. Special terms and restrictions may apply. 

We are thankful to Amazon for this program that helps so many give and give back at the same time. Please support The Salvation Army on Prime Day and spread the word to your friends and family!
