How to Shop Amazon Smile on your Mobile Device
One of the drawbacks to AmazonSmile, is you have to make your purchases through the AmazonSmile site. Purchases through the regular Amazon site and their mobile site won’t give a donation. Fortunately, there’s a work around.
1. If you regularly shop Amazon through your mobile browser, simply navigate to smile.amazon.com instead and you’re set! It will be a very similar experience to what you are used to.
2. If you regularly shop Amazon through the Amazon app you could add items to your cart via the app but finish the checkout process on your browser. (Just make sure you are at smile.amazon.com)
3. You can also use the following steps on your mobile device to create an “AmazonSmile” shortcut on your home screen:
– Visit smile.amazon.com in a browser (Google, Safari, etc)
– iPhone: Tap the share button at the bottom middle of your screen and click “Add to Home Screen”.
– Android: Tap the dots in the upper right corner of your screen. Choose “Add the Home Screen” in the drop down menu.
