Shopping affiliate schemes
Your PTA could be earning commission from money spent
online by signing up to a shopping reward scheme. Sign up today and
spread the word!
Take the amount you're likely to spend online in the next month
or so and multiply it by the number of parents at your school. If
your PTA could earn 3-4% without having to ask parents for
donations or to attend events, just think how much you might
While individual companies, such as Scholastic, offer a kickback, there are several
companies whose reward schemes incorporate leading retailers such
as Amazon, Tesco, NEXT, John Lewis and hundreds more. Your PTA
could benefit every time a parent uses one of these fundraising
websites to access their chosen online shop.
There are no hidden charges for using these schemes, either to
parents or your PTA, and all the product prices, offers, terms and
delivery details are exactly the same as going straight to the
individual websites. The only difference is that the children at
your school will benefit from every purchase. So get your PTA
signed up and send details out to all your parents now and at key
times throughout the year.
If parents are likely to forget to shop through the affiliate
scheme, many allow them to download a 'donation reminder' as a
browser extension on their computer, which will prompt the user to
claim cashback when they're shopping online.
To make it easier for users who shop on their phones and
tablets, both The Giving Machine and Give As
You Live offer a mobile app. They're free to download and make
raising money on mobile devices more user-friendly.
Whichever device they're using, parents can simply select their
nominated charity when they register, then shop with their
favourite online retailers as normal. The average amount raised is
£2.10 per person, per month - with 200 families supporting your
scheme, you'd earn £420 per month for doing nothing!
