There needs to be more said to the members about Amazon Smile. It’s a great way to give back for all the help we as pool owners receive. Two things I like about it is I can see how much I’ve given, and how much in total TFP has received. My wife and I both use it. The queen has a serious shopping addiction. Totally benefits TFP. Can’t say enough good things about this site. I promote it to anyone who’ll listen.
Maybe @Leebo can come up with a nifty plugin for the website that lets users show that they are Amazon Smile users and what their latest yearly tally is....we can all battle it out to see who gets to have a special badge by their avatar when they are “king of the hill” ....
Yes. You can now setup the Amazon App so it uses AmazonSmile instead of just your regular account. There have been times where I needed to order something quickly and I did not want to have to wait to get to my computer at home or fiddle around with the mobile Amazon website.
Moving into our new place has opened my eyes up to how much I was overspending at the Home Improvement stores. I have Amazoned many things in the last few weeks at either 2 for 1 or better. The exact same flood lights and shop lights were 2 for 1. Light switches, outlets and door handles/knobs were cheaper as well and almost half price if bought in 10 packs. Yesterday I decided against something that was $29.99 at the Depot and checked it out at home and it was $8.88 on Amazon. A wire shelving system that would have been around $100 to piece together was $31 so I got 2 and still saved 1/3.
My point is if you know what you need, check out Amazon first and not only save the trip to the store but probably save a bunch too *while* helping TFP.
