Do Your Holiday Shopping through Amazon Smile

11/29/2017

Isles is registered with Amazon Smile, a seamless program that donates a percentage of your Amazon purchases to nonprofits at no cost to you.

What is Amazon Smile?
Amazon Smile is a program that donates 0.5% of eligible purchases to a charity of your choice. So, for example, if you purchased a book for $10, five cents of that purchase would go directly to Isles. Every little bit counts!

How do I sign up?
Here are some easy steps to follow to use Amazon Smile:

  1. When you’re ready to make your next purchase on Amazon, go to smile.amazon.com
  2. Use your normal Amazon username and password to log in.
  3. Once you log in, you’ll see a search bar at the bottom of the page where you can “Pick your own charitable organization”
  4. Type in “Isles, Inc”
  5. Click the yellow “Select” button to the right of our name.
  6. Now start shopping!

Do I have to remember all those steps every time I want to buy something?
No, you just have to select Isles the first time. Then all you need to remember is to go to smile.amazon.com when you shop!

If I go to smile.amazon.com, do I miss out on products from amazon.com?
No, the smile site offers the exact same products as the amazon.com site. You’re not missing out on anything by using smile.amazon.com. (Note that not all products on the Smile site will be eligible for the donation, but all products will be there.)

How can I tell if a purchase qualifies for Amazon Smile?
You will see eligible products marked "Eligible for Amazon Smile donation" on their product detail pages.

Does it cost me anything extra?
No, not at all. You pay the same amount as you normally would for your Amazon purchases.

Does Isles see what I buy?
We can’t see what you buy. In fact, Amazon does not share any information about those who have signed up  - it’s completely anonymous. However, we do encourage you to let us know that you have signed up for it, so we can recognize you as an Isles supporter.
