Meta: Easier Way to Support TKP via Amazon (Prime Day, Black Friday, Cyber Monday)

For those of you who shop at Amazon.com, and want to support The Key Play, TKP has an affiliate account setup up with Amazon. In less technical terms, when you use TKP's affiliate link to buy something from Amazon, The Key Play gets a (small) cut of the sale.

This is TKP's affiliate link: http://amzn.to/20BlFLf. Click it, then shop at Amazon. Boom!

It can be tedious to click a link each time you shop, and if you're a Chrome user, the Philanthropist extension removes the effort.

  1. Install the Philanthropist extension.
  2. Use TKP's Amazon affiliate ID: thkepl-20.

When you shop at Amazon, the green top hat indicates purchases you make will support TKP.

Thank you for your support!

Prime day is a perfect day to release this. Just Philanthropist'd TKP. Not only will this allow me to support TKP, it will also allow me to get around the pesky possibility of supporting Gawker if Kinja Deals points me to something on Amazon.

TODAY IS PRIME DAY TOO!!!!!!!!!!!

The stars aligned all too well.

I see you with the Amazon link on Prime Day.... I see it... and I like it!

I really wish there was a way to "spread the wealth" for these affiliate links. I think many of us have dozens of places that we'd like to use the links for.

If you're reading the above post and thinking, "is this guy serious?!?," you can safely assume I'm not.

Go Prime, and go TKP!

Great idea.

Need a philanthropist extension for firefox.

Need to switch to chrome. (baah)

There's Amazon Assistant, which I think does the same thing? I have it set up for my sorority's scholarship fund, though.

Whenever I used to click the TKP link (don't Amazon very often in the first place), I'd see the info in my address bar initially. After doing my searches and shopping, though, it would look like a normal link again. I was never sure at checkout if I was still supporting TKP or not.

First, no clue how any of this stuff works, (pay by link). I use Safari - If i clink the link above and bookmark the site, if I use the bookmark does that count? Is there someway to create a bookmark portal that will work, even if I need to click it with safari? Wife does most of the shopping (huge surprise I know) and has the prime account - how can I share link/bookmark/etc with her, so she can use it, and have it easy enough for her to use that she will bother?

Damn, why didn't you have this up when I bought phones for my parents at 6am this morning!? lol I am looking at cookware now, we'll see what I come up with.

Friendly reminder.

Another, another, friendly reminder since Amazon Prime Day looms.

Glad I saw all the reminders for this as I usually do a good bit of cyber monday shopping.

Will be doing a lot of amazon shopping today, going to use this.

I love Prime day. The perfect way to spend money on stuff you otherwise would have never bought.

see, for me it's a day to be completely conflicted. "I can't afford this. Oh look, it's like 40% off. Now I can't afford it, but I feel like I need to jump on the deal before it disappears. I'm still going to buy this at some point, right? I might as well buy it at a steep discount. Am I really going to buy this later or am I just telling myself that. AAAAARRRRGGGHH."

On a related note:
NewEgg has the i5 version of the Surface Pro 4 steeply discounted today. Not a prime day deal, but totally in response to prime day.

Damn, That is making my Surface Pro 1 seem really replaceable right now.

that's a legit deal

I've been thinking about jumping to a surface, but sadly my lenovo still has some life left in it (even if the battery life leaves much to be desired)

Is the surface worth the high $$?

I have three friends with surfaces and they are all really happy with them. By all accounts a high quality product. I really want one but can't justify the expense, even at a discount.

That's....actually a really legit deal. I'm waiting until Surface Books are the Prime Day competitor. Fair warning, type cover sold separately

Just a followup because now that deal doesn't look so hot:
Surface Pro 4
i5, 128GB
Bundled with Surface Pen, Windows 10 AND Type Cover
$649

I may or may not make a bad decision about this...

I've been in need of a new PS4 controller for about a month and I've been lamenting spending ~$60 on a new one. Prime day has 'em for $40 and it'll be the first gen2 Dualshock 4 I've had, so that was exciting for me.

I had for force myself to not look at the rest of the offerings because I would absolutely be tempted by things I didn't think I wanted prior.

Meanwhile, I never see anything on Prime Day that I actually want.

Heck, I've been having that problem the last couple of years on Black Friday.

Looking for a dashcam. Anyone have any knowledge on a good one? Seems there are a few on Amazon today!

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

Joe, do you know if the same applies when ordering from Prime Now or is it only standard Amazon purchases that TKP will benefit?

.....
95% of what I say is sarcastic. The other 5% is usually taken out of context.

I believe it's anything bought via Amazon.

Bump for black friday!!

I went green and installed Philanthropist, just to be sure.
