Today Only: Amazon will donate 5% of purchase (versus usual 0.5%) toward charity through Amazon Smile Program

Posted by: swright 7 months, 1 week ago

If you have Southmountain Children and Family Services identified as your charity to donate a portion of the purchase through Amazon's Smile Program and you were considering purchasing something, today they will donate 10 times their usual amount.

Great news. Customers just ranked Amazon #1 in the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) with a score of 86. ACSI surveyed over 10,000 customers to measure perceptions of quality and value across retailers nationwide. This comes right on the heels of movies from Amazon Studios winning three Oscars and Amazon being ranked #1 in corporate reputation by the Harris Poll.

We want to celebrate the recognition, and say thank you for your support.

On Thursday, March 16 only, we will donate 5% (10 times our usual donation rate) of the purchase price of eligible products you buy at AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) to charity. AmazonSmile is a way to shop that offers the same shopping experience as Amazon.com, but every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com helps support a charity of your choice. To date, we've donated over $46 million.

To take advantage of this offer—and to ensure that your shopping throughout the year benefits your favorite charitable organization—just start your shopping at smile.amazon.com.

Thank you. And, be assured, we'll continue working hard for you every day.
