Holiday BBI Amazon.com Plug

Eric from BBI : Admin : 11/14/2018 8:04 am
As the holidays are fast approaching, a friendly reminder that BBI is an associate of Amazon.com. If you purchase Amazon.com products through the BBI portal via the "BBI Shop" section of the tool bar (or bookmark that link), a small percentage of your purchase goes to BBI. This in no way affects the price you pay for your goods.

Thank you for any support!

Couldn't you have Gary or Dave or whoever put an icon somewhere on the message board? Maybe an extra menu selection or something? I always forget about this and I do a lot of Amazon shopping....If there was an icon or menu item reminder every time I went to BBI, as opposed to just another message, I'd be more likely to click......
is there a link

that will work with amazon.co.uk ?

It's part of the menu up top right next to the log out option. Maybe they can make it a different color, but it's up there.

I would assume so.

It's in the blue menu bar above where it says "BBI Shop".

Eric - It needs to be somewhere more prominent. BBI and Amazon are probably 2 of the top 5 sites I use. Literally. And I forget. Put it as a header above the Ads on right of Message Board or next to Back to the Corner

Its buried right now and could/should be somewhere that jumps out and bites you in the nose

My saved link goes right to the Football Threads forum. I rarely go else where unless its linked in a thread. I'm sure others operate similarly.

Just providing some feedback that may be helpful .. if not - disregard
:-D

I mentioned this in past years as well.

It's easy to forget to click on "BBI Shop" to get to Amazon, because it's just not prominent enough.

I would add a box in the upper right corner that contained the Amazon logo along with a brief message like...

Support BBI when you shop at Amazon. Just click on the Amazon logo to connect to their website. You pay the same price and Amazon pays BBI a small percentage of your purchase.
Rather than a link on this site

I just bookmarked the link above months ago and replaced my usual Amazon bookmark with that one. This way, I don't have to be on this site or thinking of BBI each time I order something.

I use the BBI link to Amazon. When prompted for Amazon Smile I have always said no for concern that BBI would not get their percentage of the sale. Does anyone know if using Amazon Smile will still give credit to BBI?

I admit I often forget too. I suggest something more prominent.
