Amazon Smile Setup Instructions

Shopping just got more rewarding! Make your dollars go farther this holiday season with AmazonSmile! You shop and AmazonSmile gives to The Anderson PTA for PS334!

SAME PRODUCTS, SAME PRICES, SAME SERVICE as Amazon.com, but with an extra bonus–you can earn money for our school. It’s a simple and automatic way to support The Anderson School EVERY time you shop, at no cost to you. Plus, you can use your existing Amazon.com account.

Step 1: Computer Set Up

  1. Visit https://smile.amazon.com/
  2. Click on the top right corner, under “Accounts & Lists”, to reveal the main menu
  3. Click on “Your Amazon Smile
  4. Verify the name of the charity you are supporting
    1. If it reads “Parents of P S 334 Inc”, you are all set and can move on to Step 2.
    2. Otherwise,
      1. click on “Change Charity”
      2. search for “Parents of P S 334 Inc(with those exact words; please be careful, there is a space between P and S, and no periods anywhere)
      3. click “Select”
At this point, you should be all set in your computer(s). Qualified orders placed through http://smile.amazon.com in your computer will result in a donation of 0.5% of the total purchase to the Anderson PTA. You will be able to see the $ amount your purchases contributed, as well as the total $ amount contributed in the “Your Amazon Smile” menu.
Now let’s continue setting up the Amazon App in your phone.

Step 2: Phone App Set Up

Note: if you have multiple phones, you have to repeat this set up in each of them
  1. Open the Amazon App in your phone and click on main menu button
    1. Android: located in the top left corner
    2. iPhone: located on the bottom right corner
  2. Scroll down and click on “Settings”
  3. Click on “AmazonSmile
  4. Verify the name “Parents of P S 334 Inc” appears on the top.
    1. If it doesn’t, go back to Step 1 and fix it
    2. If it does, click the button “Turn on AmazonSmile”, and follow the instructions

At this point, your phone app will be set up, and all your qualified purchases will result in a 0.5% donation to the Anderson PTA. Much like in your computer, you will be able to see the $ amount your purchases contributed, as well as the total $ amount contributed in the “Your Amazon Smile” menu. On Android phones, you will also see how the icon “Amazon Prime” on the top of the screen now reads “Amazon Smile”.
