Did you know that if you shop online you can choose Age UK Surrey to receive a donation and at no cost to you!
Yes; there are free ways to fundraise while shopping online. We have linked in with AmazonSmile - it’s Amazon but with a difference - and with easyfundraising. Both link with hundreds of household online retailers.
Read on to find out how you can turn everyday online shopping into free donations for Age UK Surrey:
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, same prices, same service, and same shopping features as Amazon.co.uk. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns, and shipping fees) from your eligible purchases.
- AmazonSmile is very easy to use. Simply go to smile.amazon.co.uk.
- If you don't have an Amazon account, you will need to set one up. It doesn't cost anything to set up an Amazon account. (There is a fee if you set up an AmazonPrime account.)
- You will then be prompted to choose a charity to support - Age UK Surrey. During future visits to the site, AmazonSmile will remember us as your chosen charity.
- You are now ready to start shopping. However, you must be logged in to smile.amazon.com —donations will not be applied to purchases made on the Amazon.com or amazon.co.uk main site or mobile app. It is also important to remember that not everything qualifies for AmazonSmile contributions.
