Chances are that you and many of your friends, family and neighbors use Amazon to shop online. The process is simple and quick, but there are certain things you need to remember, so our school will be able to earn from 4% to 8% from your purchase.
Just click on the unique link BEFORE you add items to your Amazon shopping cart. Send this link to friends and family! Bookmark it! You still use your own login and personal account to shop. The only difference is that 217 school code is embedded in the link. This school code lets Amazon know that these customers are being referred by our school site and 217 gets a % of your purchase! The link is also available on the homepage of our website 217pta.com
• Order matters: You need to:
- click on the link (HERE),
- and check out, in that order!
If you don’t click on our link first, go to Amazon in your usual way, put things in your cart, and then remember to click on the link and check out – your sale will not earn us funds. You have to click our link before you put anything in your cart.
• The clock matters: You have 24 hours from when you link to put an item in your cart; after that you will need to link again. If you link, put something in your cart within 24 hours, but don’t want to buy it right away, that is fine – the purchase will still earn us funds if you finalize it within 90 days: just remember to link before you checkout.
• One purchase session per link session: Arriving at Amazon through our link is good for 24 hours or until you actually place your order – after that, you need to link again. So if you link, complete a purchase, and then need to make another purchase – you have to link again in order for the purchase to earn us funds.
• You won’t see anything that identifies you as an 217 shopper. Don’t worry - as long as you used the 217 link and follow the order and clock guidelines, your purchase will count.
• The amount our school can earn ranges from 4% to 8%, depending on what you purchase and our total shipped items for the calendar month. The more we shop using our link, the more we will earn!
