I got an email overnight from Amazon saying they will donate an extra $5 starting today, up to a total of $1 million. I bought a $7 book off of my wish list so JREF could get $5.

If you want to participate, make sure you go to smile.amazon.com first, and have JREF selected as your charity. If you go straight to the regular Amazon site, they don't contribute. I bookmarked the smile site instead of the regular shopping one to remind myself.

I don't think this programme is running on the international flavours of Amazon (amazon.co.uk in my case) which is a shame.

If I'm wrong about that, however, can someone please correct me and give me a link!

Randi posted the link on Facebook today, and judging by the comments, no it does not work for customers outside of the US.

The nicest thing about this special $5 incentive is my $7 book earned a donation that would have cost me $1000 in purchases normally. I have to remind myself sometimes programs like this and the charity credit cards are nice, but ordinarily JREF (and I) would be better off if I just gave them $10.

I think the $5 bonus expired yesterday, but the half percent donation still can go towards JREF on most other purchases

Thanks. Just renewed my Prime membership in anticipation of ordering more from Amazon and will use this when purchasing.
