CGF Shop42A.com fundraising program (2015 YTD: $47,802 | 2014: $188,628)
 
All,

Whenever you shop at Amazon, simply browse to www.Shop42A.com first and a portion of every sale you make during that session will go directly to advancing our civil rights (up to 15%). It's important to note that you need to enter www.Shop42A.com each time you shop at Amazon; when you check out (make a purchase), the association to our program goes away. Some have found it easier to save www.Shop42A.com as a browser link or desktop icon in order to save time and make remembering www.Shop42A.com easier to do.

Make sure to share www.Shop42A.com with your friends and family -- happy shopping for gun rights!

Important note about Amazon Smile: There's been ongoing confusion about the "Amazon Smile" program. While you can contribute to CGF through the Smile program, the donation we receive is significantly less than that from our www.Shop42A.com affiliate program shopping link.

Do all three links work the same?

1911_sfca 11-28-2011 9:20 AM

I believe you have to click this link before adding an item to your shopping cart. E.g. if you add it, then a day or two later click this link and check out, it doesn't apply.

Can you clarify the rules and whether what I said is correct?

SoCal Bob 11-28-2011 9:25 AM

Any way to put an Amazon logo link on the Calguns page so all you have to do is click on the link and go shopping?

Jeepers 11-28-2011 9:26 AM

Bookmarked , and great timing ordering up a Kindle Fire this afternoon for my better half ;) ....

Wherryj 11-28-2011 9:35 AM

This will be yet another reason to continue shopping at Amazon even after the new tax hits next Sept. The biggest issue is going to be how to decide whether to purchase through NRA or CalGuns. Now both have the option.

SoCal Gunner 11-28-2011 9:54 AM

Son of a... any way to do this retroactively?

You're right on target, thanks for the assist.

between me and the wife we spend so much on amazon it's not even funny. This needs to be a sticky or something else big so the word gets around.

The 2 in the OP are the same (the 3rd was another dupe), one's just a bitly so easier to copy/paste (the full URL is truncated by vBulletin).

AWESOME! It's a Kindle Christmas this year, I have 7 to order.

Festus 11-28-2011 11:33 AM

Very cool! I do have more shopping to do through Amazon, it looks like.

dlewis7 11-28-2011 11:37 AM

I do a lot of shopping through Amazon. I'll use this link from now on at work and home!

:hurray:

thefinger 11-28-2011 12:13 PM

Wow, thats awesome. I buy virtually everything nowadays using my Amazon Prime account. CGF is gonna be making some serious moolah off of my purchases now. What an awesome program!

This is awesome! I shop at Amazon so much! I'll be getting a Kindle Touch soon and will definitely use the link.

Tier One Arms 11-28-2011 12:39 PM

Make it a sticky, I shop there all the time!

tpuig 11-28-2011 12:43 PM

Great to see this. I just ordered some stuff last night. I'm replacing my bookmark with this one...

WD_40 11-28-2011 12:51 PM

I'm ordering xmas presents today and I will definitely be using the link.

wildhawker 11-28-2011 1:16 PM

Thanks to all for the awesome support! Every single cent helps.

This is great, I purchase often from Amazon.

1911_sfca 11-28-2011 2:23 PM

I shop for hundreds / thousands per month on amazon for work. Just ordered a couple hundred worth of stuff using the link. Will use it in the future.

+1

My wife gets 2-3 deliveries per day during the beginning of the school year.

I use Amazon as a benchmark in online buying. Even if I can get something 5-10% cheaper at a no name site, I'll choose Amazon. This is just icing on the cake.

mej16489 11-28-2011 3:46 PM

Is there any indication anywhere to show that the referral is in effect?

wildhawker 11-28-2011 3:59 PM

When you first get to the Amazon homepage, you'll see a "Calguns" reference in the address bar. Browsing beyond that you'll not see it but any orders placed that session will be properly credited.

LeatherNuts 11-28-2011 8:16 PM

1,468.21 ordered through this.

JimSar 11-28-2011 8:29 PM

Can you post a status at say, year end, or whenever Amazon gives you an accounting? It will be nice to know how much was raised through this effort.

Definitely will. I'll likely post at our Twitter feed (@Calgunsfdn) and blog as well as here.

chozenfew805 11-28-2011 8:39 PM

Did not know about this, tagged for the last of my Christmas shopping;)

NotEnufGarage 11-29-2011 5:11 PM

Can we get an Amazon logo somewhere on the header or footer of the forum pages so it's always easily available?

Nachoman 11-29-2011 5:30 PM

too bad you didn't post this before thanksgiving, i've been shopping up a storm at amazon.

I can make a clickable Amazon banner that directs to the homepage via the CGF referral if Calguns.net would agree to place it.

barracudamuscle 11-29-2011 6:27 PM

gobler 11-29-2011 7:05 PM

Yes, a click-able banner or "add" would be great. I shop Amazon all the time and would love to be able to do this through Calguns.

I buy lots of stuff from Amazon. I have replaced my old Amazon bookmark with the CGF bookmark. I hope it fills the CGF coffers to overflowing!

Lulfas 11-30-2011 6:30 AM

A nifty try is to right click the link, click "Copy Link Address", then make a bookmark directly to the link. Guarantees CGF gets the affiliate flow through.

sacto929 11-30-2011 6:50 AM

Glad I found this the other night. CGF gets a portion of a Barbie townhouse! (really, it's for my daughters...honestly :rolleyes: )

ptoguy2002 11-30-2011 8:01 AM

Doesn't the NRA have a similar program?
Out of state folks won't know or care, so that might be a better link for them.

ETA: Here is the old thread: http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=251169
But it doesn't appear that the same links exist on the NRA site, they have there own store now?
