Amazon smile FAQs
Will there be any differences in the prices or availability of products when I use Amazon Smile rather than the regular Amazon?
If the donation isn’t charged to me, then where does the donation come from?
AmazonSmile is a charitable organization, funded by Amazon. Amazon donates the money. There is no charge to you as a customer.
Will I still have access to all my same Amazon features if I use Amazon smile?
Your history, your digital content, your account information, any saved addresses or payment information, and, if applicable, yourAmazon Prime is ALL still available when you shop with AmazonSmile. The site will look the SAME as always, the only difference is that you will see “AmazonSmile” at the top left, and when using the full site you will also see near the top of the page that you are supporting the “Glencoe PTO”.
Is it worth it? .5% of my purchase Amount is so little; will it add up to much for the Glencoe PTO?
YES, it could!
There are more than 700 families in theDistrict 35 schools. I magine if each family designated the Glencoe PTO as their charity of choice on Amazon!
This program lasts all year long – just think about how much this could add up to!

Now that I have registered the Glencoe PTO as my chosen amazon smile charity, can I just shop at Amazon as usual?
Pretty much; however, in order for your purchases to lead to AmazonSmile donations, you must use the URL: https://smile.amazon.com OR https://smile.amazon.com/ch/20-0996233 every time you make a purchase at Amazon.
I often shop through the amazon app on my phone or device; Will those purchases automatically lead to Amazon smile donations?
If you prefer to shop or browse using Amazon’s App, go ahead and add items to your shopping cart using the app, but then use your browser to open www.smile.amazon.com to complete your purchase.
Everything that you left in your shopping cart will still be waiting for you. You may want to create a link on your phone/device to https://smile.amazon.com.
