Neat idea, Greg! :smile:

But can we have an easier-to-find link …

perhaps in the Search drop-down menu?​

Not really a big feature. Just keep it in mind next time you want to purchase something.

This is neat.
First thing I see is a book we just bought. The Coming Revolution [Rabbi Zamir Cohen] Hardcover
We ran out and bought this book on the recomendation of someone in the ultra orthodox jewish community in response to my posting about the "UFO" over the Dome of the Rock in Israel a couple months ago.
We do NOT recommend this book if you have any Science or Torah background. I should have expected as much, it ws recomended by a woman in that community. They do not learn. It is a picture book.
However if you are looking for crock-s, there is a nice selection on the right hand side of that page. :smile:
Best

I wish I had known about this earlier; I buy nearly all my books from amazon.

If I were to earn physicsforums fifteen dollars or more through amazon could I be considered a contributor?

Wow 6 procent is a lot, nice idea!

You state 'text books or electronics' but I take the products don't have to be about science?

Correct, anything.

I think so, maybe I'll post the link here next to the US link.

No problem, just keep it in mind for next semester :)

Yea. I need to have my daughter do this. So for us old folks the can't remember things, maybe you should bump this ever now and again. Here, early to mid August would be a good time.

Greg, for PF to get a commission from Amazon, do you have to use one of the links from PF and then add items to your cart? Or can you just go to Amazon from PF and then place an order already filled out?

Dang, I forgot about this when I bought my TV ~6 months ago. That would have been a good one.

And my textbooks last semester...

But I'll remember this time!*



*I can only use the link if I'm still a member, when you read this post and think about banning me.

I always forget to do this! :mad:
Well, now that I've posted here I'm subscribed to this thread. Hopefully it'll pop up enough to drive it into my brain.

I don't mean to be contrarian here, but, would you please consider a deal with "brick-and-mortar" stores, instead of virtual ones next time ?

My reason for this is the following: stores like B&N , the former Borders, Starbucks, etc., provide me not only with a product, but also allow me to sit in and hang-out for hours for the price of a cup of coffee--however expensive; it is a cover charge. With online stores, I get a product, and that's it. Moreover, I like being able to walk in the city and see people in stores; if too many people support online stores vs. physical ones, down-towns will start emptying out. Then again, this depends on whether one does care about having lively down-towns and lively streets. I love hanging out at these places, but they depend on one's business to remain open.

I would understand if you live in a faraway place and/or a small town, that Amazon would be convenient, since there aren't many other choices, but, otherwise, if one wants places to hang-out in, it may be a good idea to support them.

How is it going to help PF if I setup a deal with the local Italian grocery store at the end of my block? Are you going to come and visit and buy something from there? :)

Well, I was hoping for a deal that would help both , say, with Barnes and Noble or some other global store that also has a physical presence . I don't know if B&N could do an arrangement with you like the one you did with Amazon; that way bums like me would have a place to hang out in :) .

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.
