Charity Benefits Me

It’s that time of year again! After the joy of unwrapping Christmas presents, the pricey textbook check comes due again!

This year I price matched my textbooks at a local bookstore and compared it to Amazon Smile. Amazon Smile donates a portion of your purchase to charity for each transaction you make.

My local bookstore cart added up to $161.49

Amazon Smile (including free shipping) was $119.86

My charity earned $0.23 at no cost to me.


That means I saved $41.63! I gave $0.23 = A quarter more for both of us!

That adds up to an easy way to donate to charity of my choice, plus save money for college. What did your textbooks do to change the world?
