Amazon Cash Back Shopping

Want to get cash back from Amazon shopping, but you've noticed that Amazon isn't on any of the major cash back sites?  Here's a step-by-step guide to getting cash back every time you shop at Amazon!
Any questions, or if I'm missing a step, just leave a comment on this blog and I'll answer it as soon as I can!

Step 1: Click here and sign up for Squidoo (it's free!)
Step 2: Click the orange "Create a Lens" button
Step 3: On the section called "New Amazon," click Edit
Step 4a: Select "Let Amazon Pick" and fill out any search term
Step 4b: Select "Let Me Pick" and paste an Amazon product link in the box, then click Add Item.  Up to 5 items can be listed.
Step 5: Scroll down to the bottom and click Save
Step 6: If you want other people to find your lens and possibly use your links, making you money, you'll need to add more modules to your Lens.  Click Publish.  (If you didn't add more, it will ask you if you really want to publish, click Publish Anyway.)
Step 7: Upper left-hand corner, click Dashboard.  Your lens will be in the list.
Step 8: Save the link to your lens (Mine is http://www.squidoo.com/amazon-cash-back)
Step 9: Every time you shop at Amazon, start by opening your lens page and clicking on one of the items in your list.  (You don't have to purchase the item you click to)
Step 10: To get paid, you'll need to specify your PayPal email address, which you can do under the Settings tab.

Why Participate in Change Makers?

Jack Czapla
Eric and Kathy’s 36-Hour Radiothon features the incredible, heartwarming stories of children and families who have been cared for at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago (Formerly Children's Memorial Hospital).
Get involved and support the more than 148,000 kids the hospital treats every year by becoming a Change Maker. The Make Change in a Child’s Life program turns your small change into a big impact to make a difference.
Just ask 6-year-old Jack Czapla. One day after undergoing an injection with one of the chemotherapy drugs he takes in his fight against acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), his nurse put on a plain Band-Aid® instead of the kind he usually received picturing a popular cartoon character. The nurse explained that they were out of “fun” Band-Aids®, which are typically donated to the hospital. Jack came up with the idea to have a lemonade stand to raise money to buy more fun Band-Aids®, for other kids with cancer. Read Jack’s Story.
Make Change in a Child’s Life is a fun way to teach your kids about giving back or engaging your company to make a difference. The program is simple:
  1. Sign up online. You can either register for a change collection bag or raise your funds through online e-mails and appeals. You can even do both!
  2. Collect your own spare change and ask your family, friends and co-workers for their extra pennies, nickels, dimes or quarters to help the kids and families served by Lurie Children’s.
  3. Turn in your change at any Fifth Third Bank location throughout the summer until September 7, and tune into the Radiothon on September 7 and 8!

Please help me save babies



On Sunday, April 29, 2012, I will once again be participating in March for Babies in Chicago.  As you can see from the banner above, I am still very far from my goal.  With less than 7 weeks to go, I really need your help.  If you're able to make a monetary donation, please click here, select an amount and fill out your information.  Even $5 can make a difference.

Some ideas to get a $5 donation:
Ask 4 friends to match your $1 donation.
Set aside a quarter a day.
Forward this page to a friend or family member, and ask them to donate $5.

If you can't make a monetary donation right now, here are some other ways you can help:
Go to this page, Like it, Tweet it, Share it, Pin it:  http://www.squidoo.com/bratmarchforbabies
Shop Tupperware, 25% of the retail sales will be donated:  http://xbratx99.livejournal.com/20802.html
Shop online at 1,200 retailers: http://my.bigcrumbs.com/TeamCHD
Sign up for SavingStar, confirm your account and add a grocery card.  Fifty cents will be donated.  http://SavingStar.ojrq.net/c/21537/17148/758
Purchase any of these March for Babies products, a portion of the sale will be donated:  http://www.zazzle.com/xbratx

I will hopefully be adding other ways to help.  To see the donations from the other ways to help, check out this page.
