You can even bookmark the page to make it easier every time you shop.

Can I use AmazonSmile on my desktop?

Sure. Many people already have an icon or tool bar favorite for Amazon, and most probably set it up to take you to Amazon.com. You’ll need to change that, simply edit the icon or bookmark to go to smile.amazon.com, or you can add another icon or bookmark for AmazonSmile. You can even add a browser extension such as Smilematic which automatically redirects Amazon to Amazon Smile ensuring Sacred Heart is always supported.

Can I use the Amazon Shopping App that I already have downloaded on my smart phone?

Yes and no. It really depends… see the next two frequently asked questions.

Can I shop AmazonSmile on my Android smartphone or tablet?

Amazon just released an updated Amazon Shopping App (for Android operating systems). If you have already signed up for AmazonSmile, you can now support Sacred Heart Catholic Church in the Amazon shopping app on your Android device! Simply follow these instructions to turn on AmazonSmile and start generating donations. The instructions are for updating the app and for changing the settings to always use AmazonSmile.

Can I shop AmazonSmile on my Apple smartphone or tablet?

AmazonSmile is not currently available for iOS users via the Amazon Shopping App. Amazon will notify us when it becomes available.

So, at the moment, if you use the Amazon Shopping App on Apple devices (which only supports Amazon.com) and click “Buy Now” – you will get your products, but there will be no donation to the parish.

A simple workaround is to just place the items in the “Shopping Cart” by using the current app – and then wait until you are at home/work and have access to your desktop. Then go to smile.amazon.com, and you will find your cart waiting for you. Click “Buy Now” and you will get your products and the parish will receive a donation!

Can I set up an Amazon Smile shortcut for my iPhone or iPad. How do I do that?

Set up a shortcut to the Amazon Smile page on your screen. Here’s how:
– (a) Visit smile.amazon.com in Safari (or your smart phone/tablet browser).
– (b) Select the share button at the bottom middle of your screen (or at the top of the screen).
– (c) Click “Add to Home Screen.”

…or, you can…

Use the Apple Utility: Shortcut to create an Amazon Smile shortcut on your screen.  When asked for the URL add “https://smile.amazon.com” and then follow on the on-screen instructions to add the shortcut to your screen.

That’s it. You have just created a shortcut to the Amazon Smile page to easily navigate from your screen to Amazon Smile. One last step: delete your existing Amazon App so you will always shop with a smile.
