How can I support the United Church of God when shopping at Amazon.com?
Amazon.com offers a special promotion, through its AmazonSmile Program, in which it will donate 0.5 percent (one half of one percent) of the price of eligible purchases to a designated charity. The United Church of God recently became registered as one of those charities. In fact, just a few months ago, we received our first small check as the result of some members making their Amazon purchases through this program.
Here’s more information on the Program, and how to sign up. It is an easy process, and it costs you nothing to participate in the program, but the Church can benefit from every purchase you make.
1. What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support the United Church of God every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to the Church.
2. How do I select the United Church of God as the organization I want to support when shopping on AmazonSmile?
On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com ), you will be asked to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. In the search box, type United Church of God and you will see the Church’s name pop up, with the Milford, OH location. Select the Church, and Amazon will remember your selection. From then on, every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation. Another option is to go directly to this link and log into your Amazon account - http://smile.amazon.com/ch/95-4529758

3. How do I shop at AmazonSmile? And can I use my existing Amazon account?
To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. And YES, you use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.
