Physics Forums has opened an affiliate account with Amazon.com

6% of any purchase you make is sent to Physics Forums. Think about buying your text books or electronics... anything here.

Just click this link and the tracking system will register that PF sent you. Thanks!!

http://www.amazon.com or http://www.amazon.co.uk
Is there any way to see if this works? I just clicked the link (the .com) and it took me to URL http://www.amazon.com/?tag=vglnk-c905-20. I assume that the tag identifies PF somehow. But then I logged in to my Amazon account, and now the tag doesn't appear in the URL.

But this is still online buying. I think WWGD wants some arrangement where he walks into a store in person, and can indicate somehow that PF encouraged him to go there. But I'm not sure how that would or even could work.
No, I understand that is not likely to be viable. I just like to support places I get something from in general, to shape the city in a small way (i.e., helping places I like stay in business), so that I e.g., get my coffee from places that have seating over those who don't, etc.

I was wondering the same thing. Do I have to shopping cart some items using the pf link, or what?

I believe the tag transforms into a cookie. You can login, use a cart, whatever, it sticks.

Hey Greg,

I live in Canada and buy everything from Amazon. I would be glad to help out this awesome site. Would you post the link for amazon.ca?

Thanks! :D

Is there any way to make this more well known?

This is the first that I've heard of this, and I've bought several things from Amazon since joining this website. I understand that it's already a sticky, but as far as I know, very few people venture into this part of the forum.

Wish I'd known about this earlier. I buy a lot of stuff from Amazon.

I'll remember for next time!
