Amazon Shopping Rewards
Please remember to use BSI's full link when shopping on Amazon. BSI earns a percentage of each purchase made using the link at no cost to you. There are two referral rewards. We earn more money from our BSI tag (7%) in the URL but the addition of the Smile program last year gives us an additional .5%. If you only use Smile then BSI only earns .5% of the purchase. When shopping, select 'Brooklyn School of Inquiry' as your charity at http://smile.amazon.com one time. After that, always use the full link of http://smile.amazon.com/?tag=bp02-20 when adding items to the shopping cart and when placing an order. Amazon will look the same, but selecting BSI in the Smile program plus tag=bp02-20 in the link tells Amazon that the BSI PTO should get the referral reward. Thanks always to our Amazon cheerleader, parent Anatoly G.!
Remember, our earnings formula is Amazon Smile (.5%) + BSI tag bp02-20 (7%) = 7.5% - 7.5% of your total purchase goes to BSI, at no cost to you! Use the link or simply click below.
