    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.

    I just saw this again yesterday, I buy a ton of stuff from amazon!

    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 recomend 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:

    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?
  12. Sep 4, 2011 #11
    Sure :). Just pm me the products and I'll double check
  13. Sep 14, 2011 #12
    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?
  14. Sep 14, 2011 #13
    Will this work through amazon.co.uk?
  15. Sep 14, 2011 #14
    Wow, never knew about this until the mass email about the login issues.

    ...and I just bought ~$200 of books from amazon 2 weeks back. Dang.
  16. Sep 14, 2011 #15
    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.

    Yeah I know, unfortunately I was away traveling last half of august. Bump! :)

    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?
