Amazon Smile is now IN the Android Amazon App!

Amazon has set up a way for non-profits to earn funds from their supporters’ purchases.

As a 501(c)3 organization, Neely’s PTO is one of the recipients of their generosity. Using Amazon Smile is so easy!

The one catch to using Amazon Smile before has been that purchases had to be made through smile.amazon.com.

Now you can use the Amazon app to support Amazon Smile on Android devices!

Learn how to set up the app here.

Once you have turned it on, sign in as usual and select the organization you would like your funds to support. You only have to do this once. The PTO is listed as Neely Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization.

Amazon Smile does NOT apply to purchases made on www.amazon.com, or if you have NOT set up the app, so make sure every purchase you make is done at smile.amazon.com or through your Android Amazon app.


Not on Android? An iOS app will be released soon. Until then, shop in the app, add the items to your cart, then go to smile.amazon.com on Safari or Chrome and checkout. All of your information will show up in the app like normal.

Amazon Smile

 

From now until November 2nd, Amazon’s usual 0.5% contribution is being multiplied to 

5% of eligible purchases!

Using Amazon Smile is so easy! The one catch is that purchases MUST be made through  smile.amazon.com, not the app or amazon.com.

Don’t worry. We’ve laid out the simple process of using smile.amazon.com instead of the app right here:

 

  

Here’s how to do it:

Do everything like you normally do on your phone, computer, whatever, including adding items to your cart. DO NOT CHECKOUT!!

On your phone or tablet, open Safari or Chrome, and go to smile.amazon.com. On your computer, make sure the web address is smile.amazon.com.

When you do, you will be prompted to sign in an choose a charity. Pick us – Neely Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (aka Neely PTO). You will only have to do this the first time you use Amazon Smile.

When you’re done with that, click on your cart. Amazon will magically display everything you added from whatever you were using before. (It’s not magic, it’s complex computer code, but it seems like magic.)

NOW CHECKOUT! You will get a happy message saying Thanks for Supporting Neely! and you’ll get that smile on your face that Amazon promised in their name because your kids get something to help their school for FREE!

Everything you love about Amazon works exactly like it always has, but our school and your kids benefit. 

So, try it out. Get a little early holiday shopping done and help us earn a whopping 5% of your purchase!
