Park Lane Primary

Amazon Smile

The Friends of Park Lane Primary School Association is a registered charity, and as such is a member of the Amazon Smile program.

How does AmazonSmile work ?
When first visiting smile.amazon.co.uk, Amazon customers are prompted to select a charitable organisation. Amazon will give 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT and other shipping fees) of eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organisations selected by our customers.

How do I sign up ?

Visit smile.amazon.co.uk and search for 'Friends of Park Lane'. A table of results will be displayed for your search and the Friends of Park Lane Primary School Association in Tilehurst will appear near the top of the list. Select Friends of Park Lane Primary School Association as your preferred charity.

After I’ve signed up, what next ?

When you visit  smile.amazon.co.uk all the items eligible for an Amazon donation are displayed. Fill your basket, check-out and pay, knowing that within the next calendar quarter Amazon will make a donation on your behalf.

The smile.amazon.co.uk website contains ALL the products and items eligible for a donation from Amazon. The main www.amazon.co.uk website contains a mixture of products that are and are not eligible.

But I use the Amazon App on my iPhone - and it doesn't offer Smile ! What should I do ?

The trick is to add a Home Screen icon that takes you directly to the Smile Amazon website. 

Launch Safari and navigate to smile.amazon.co.uk. Tap the Bookmark icon at the bottom of the screen (it resembles a box with an upward-pointing arrow). scroll up until you can tap the 'Add to Home Screen'. Accept the suggested name for the shortcut, or enter one you like better

If you you want to go one step more and make sure that you always use the Smile website and not the App - then you can delete the App!  Don’t worry, this will not delete your Amazon account or any of your settings.

To do this, tap and hold the app icon until it starts to jiggle. Tap the cross at the top left of the icon and confirm that you want to delete it. 

IMPORTANT

Please note that you must choose items via the  smile.amazon.co.uk website for

the donation to be registered.
