It is sort of like magic. You buy stuff at Amazon.com at their whatever price you would normally pay and Amazon then gives part of their portion–between four and ten percent of the entire sale. Why would Amazon do this–they consider it advertising and take the program very seriously.
Here’s how it works:
1) Click on the Amazon graphic, below. You will now be at Amazon’s site but if you look closely you will see in the URL that it contains the txt “fofpto”: Friends of Farallone Parent Teacher Organization.
2) Bookmark that special URL in your browser.
3) Now, whenever you shop at Amazon just go there via your bookmark and it will all count toward Farallone View PTO’s account. So simple. It’s like free money. All you have to remember is that you have to go there via the bookmark and make purchases that session–putting it in your shopping cart and coming back later doesn’t count, nor do gift certificates.
Giving others people’s money is fun and easy!
