Description from store SmileAlways makes giving to charity easy by automatically redirecting all Amazon.com pages to smile.amazon.com. ***Now also includes international support for Amazon.de and Amazon.co.uk.*** ============================== Extension Summary: This extension makes giving to charity easy by automatically redirecting all Amazon.com pages to smile.amazon.com. Through Amazon's AmazonSmile initiative, 0.5% of your purchases on eligible items will automatically be donated to the charity of your choice. SmileAlways does not collect any information about your identity or browsing or purchasing activity; we just want to help you give to charity every time you shop at Amazon, without having to remember to start at smile.amazon.com. SmileAlways was developed by two MIT students, Josh Haimson and Dan Elitzer. Josh and Dan wrote and published the initial version of this extension on November 10th, 2013, dedicating it to the memory of Aaron Swartz. We hope in our lifetimes to contribute to the world a fraction of the impact Aaron achieved during the far too short time he was among us. While we encourage everyone who shops at Amazon to use this extension, we hope you will also find other ways to contribute to charitable causes you care about by directly donating your dollars, skills, and time. If you are unsure which charity you want to give to, please check out the organizations recommended by GiveWell, a charity research and evaluation group with whom Aaron volunteered his time. The extension was not created or endorsed by Amazon. Amazon and AmazonSmile are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc.

  • (2022-07-16) Jared Katz: Works perfectly. Everyone should have this extension installed!
  • (2022-06-22) Travis Terrell: Works! And instantly ("Amazon Smile Redirect" had an inexplicable 2-3 second delay). Open source, too.
  • (2021-10-02) Cheta Morton: I'd give it a 5 ... if it worked! Installed in Opera and set up a while ago, but it does NOT redirect. I think it needs to be updated perhaps??
  • (2021-08-24) Jake Shirley: Easy extension to always do a little, nice thing. Works fine in Edge Chromium.
  • (2021-07-23) Mary Lee: Has worked well for me for months, but in the past few days has suddenly landed on a "sorry, something went wrong" page. If I then click on the Amazon logo in the corner, it redirects correctly, but not if I just type in "amazon.com" as the URL. Hoping this gets fixed soon, as it's been so great to not have to think about it myself! Thanks!
  • (2021-06-22) Matt Sidor: Works perfectly, feels invisible, as it should.
  • (2021-06-21) Matt Houglum: This extension is great, but I have to occasionally disable it because it breaks some pages (probably not this extension's fault - I'd bet it's Amazon's fault for not testing all functionality on the smile subdomain). For example, I cannot manage my Amazon "subscribe & save" subscriptions with this enabled.
  • (2021-04-24) Dawson Botsford: Simple goal, perfect execution!
  • (2021-02-05) Jennie Ahn: The response time is instant whereas some other chrome extensions that does the same thing takes a bit more time to redirect. I love this extension and it works with Amazon Assistant as well!! Great!
  • (2021-02-02) April Lazarus: Works perfectly every time! No complaints here.
  • (2020-11-30) Paul Broeker: Works as advertised - thanks! :)
  • (2020-11-09) Lennart Säwe: Tut was es soll. So kann ich helfen und es kostet nix perfekt :D
  • (2020-10-30) Chris Curls: Great idea but unfortunately it doesn't work all the time. Some of the links within Amazon take you to www.amazon even if you were at smile.amazon which has caught me out a number of times. Wanted a way to redirect these sneaky links but this doesn't do the job. Works when linked from outside of the Amazon domain though.
  • (2020-10-05) Tatiana Racheva: I've been using it for a few months, and haven't had to think about it. It just works
  • (2020-08-30) Jamie G: simple and easy, great for someone who always forgets to go on the url!
  • (2020-07-29) Karl Pearson: I am very glad to have found this. I see there are 2 others, and because of one bug in this one (sent to the developer - clickable links from others not changing) I might consider trying the others. When I go to amazon.com from any link that doesn't already point to a product, it works flawlessly.
  • (2020-07-05) Chris M: For anyone shopping on Amazon, they should always be using Smile, and this extension makes it so I do not have to remember to explicitly go to Smile. I use this in Brave browser, not Google Chrome, and it works great!
  • (2020-06-29) Does what it is supposed to do!
  • (2020-01-16) tommi kuisle: Es macht was es soll, und viele menschen wird es helfen... :D. Danke für diese kleine extansion!
  • (2019-12-18) Andrew Lamarra: Works exactly as expected. Thanks for the great extension!
  • (2019-10-08) Michael G: Does exactly what i need it to do!
  • (2019-07-26) Kyle Evans: It's very common for me to just browse around on Amazon checking prices and reviews. When I actually go to buy an item, I often forget to switch over to Amazon Smile and don't realize it until after I've placed the order. This extension has saved me numerous times. Solid 5/5.
  • (2019-07-02) Jordon Griffiths: Amazing extension - I always forget to use smile but this works perfectly and redirects me there without me having to think about it 👍
  • (2019-06-11) rosemarie luces: Very fast
  • (2019-03-11) Donald Straka: Works exactly how it is suppose too.
  • (2019-02-20) This extension used to be great, now it does nothing unless you uninstall/reinstall it weekly (at least). Too bad.
  • (2019-02-20) jaidon rymer: Works perfectly for amazon UK. makes making amazon do their bit just a little easier.
  • (2019-02-14) Familie Pelz: Funktioniert aktuell nicht bei https 02/2019
  • (2019-02-12) Jenn Forbes: It doesn't work, just sends you to the normal Amazon site.
  • (2019-02-11) Brian Hart: I love this extension and have been using it for a while. I got a chrome update recently that I think broke it though. From skimming other reviews seems they are having the same issue. I hate to rate it one star but if somebody is coming to see this now they need to know... as soon as this gets fixed I'll be sure to update my review.
  • (2019-02-11) Ben Caldwell: To those having issues with the extension recently- Give this a try: 1. Turn off Smile Always 2. Log out of Amazon Account 3. Turn on Smile Always 4. Log into Amazon If that doesn't work try: 1. Turn off Smile Always 2. Log out of Amazon Account 3. Log into Amazon 4. Turn on Smile Always This got it working for me. Wonderful extension!
  • (2019-02-09) Ryan McVickers: No longer works. Links to Amazon are not redirected to AmazonSmile. Typing in Amazon.com in the address bar is also not redirected to AmazonSmile. Stopped working about a week ago.
  • (2019-02-05) Kali: Having issues these days. It doesn't do anything. My current setup Chrome Browser Version 72.0.3626.81 (Official Build) (64-bit) on Linux Ubuntu Box 16.04.
  • (2019-02-02) Justin Renberg: This app has malware in it. When you search for something on google it will hijack when you click on a link and launch a different link, links that are probably monetized. Disabling the app this behavior no longer happens.
  • (2019-01-31) Vero Marine Center: Easy, unobtrusive, and you can support groups easier!
  • (2018-10-06) Donna Heaston: i originally used another app for this function. i always had to wait for the change. this app works with no apparent difference than choosing smile every time.
  • (2018-08-23) Devil Angel: i love this extension. its very simple and useful. its works very good.its support every country. and UK and Germany support is awesome.
  • (2018-08-22) Chris Linder: If you use Chrome as your browser, this extension will automatically take you to AmazonSmile when you go to Amazon. It's helped my family know that every purchase we make on Amazon gives back to our community.
  • (2018-08-13) Manuel Infante: Great extension to make it easy for everyone to go to amazon smile every time.
  • (2018-07-17) Matthew Stanfield: Amazon.co.uk users please note that it works well with Amazon UK. A simple extension that does what it says on the tin. 5/5
  • (2018-07-10) Tony Almatti: I love this extension, but I just wish that there was a button to disable it sometimes. Some of my other Amazon-focused (research) extensions don't play nice with Amazon Smile, unfortunately, so it is a hassle to have to go into the Extensions menu to disable it when I want to use them.
  • (2018-06-23) Travis: Excellent! I recommend charity = Judicial Watch, Inc.
  • (2018-05-02) Robin van Baalen: Set and forget. Always and automatically use Amazon Smile :-)
  • (2018-04-24) Andri Irawan: *... . :-)
  • (2018-04-23) Jack G: Works great!

  • (2022-01-27, v:0.93) Joe T: New Issue with cart
    Not sure what's changed but now getting error "can't find that page" after adding an item to cart and when attempting to view cart directly it shows empty & all saved items are also gone
  • (2021-07-10, v:0.93) Powell Koko: MONEY
  • (2021-02-23, v:0.93) Megan: .co.uk?
    Hi, I see you say there is support for amazon.co.uk. I was wondering how I would get it to redirect me to smile.amazon.co.uk instead of .com?
  • (2020-12-30, v:0.93) Simon Gray: Credentials
    The login page requires my email address and password, which I guess is essential for Amazon. But is this secure? Do Smile see these credentials?
  • (2020-07-29, v:0.93) Karl Pearson: Smile from clicked links
    When clicking on a link someone sends me, it never goes to my smile account. Can that be corrected? I would think that if the URL is parsed, and everything behind the .de/com/etc saved, then smile put on the first, then the rest added back in, it might be easy to fix... This from a web developer, not a web manipulator, which is pretty awesome you can do. Can I help test anything? Thank you!
  • (2020-06-26, v:0.93) Malcolm Rowe: Do you have or know of a similar extension/plugin for Microsoft Edge?
    Currently, Edge is my default browser and I prefer it for some things and Chrome for others. So I was hoping there might be a similar app for Edge, so that I don't have to remember which browser to use when I buy on Amazon. If not, would you be interested in making one?
  • (2020-05-19, v:0.93) Wesley Harris: I want this thing off my computer
    I don't remember downloading this scam in the first place
  • (2020-03-05, v:0.93) Jon Langel: Smile Always Campaign
    Hey friend, Think your extension is awesome and is a super easy way to make massive donations to charity if it hits scale. Just FYI that I'm going to be promoting it everywhere I can and am trying to get it added directly to the Amazon website. Let me know if you have any issues with this. Best, Jon
  • (2019-02-12, v:0.93) Thomas K.: not redirecting
    running chrome 72.0.3626.96 on windows10 (64-bit)
  • (2019-02-07, v:0.93) Ariel Halevy: Wont redirect anymore
    Dear Developer, This is an amazing little extension. I never noticed how much I needed this in my life until it wasnt there anymore. I see that going to amazon.com doesnt redirect to smile.amazon.com anymore. I am not sure what the issue is. Can you please help out? All the best, Ariel
  • (2019-02-07, v:0.93) Jack H: Stopped working
    The extension suddenly stopped working. I think it may have been due to the update to Chrome 72. I read some of the other reports and replies, and I turned off all extension...even Google Keep and Slides and such...and it still doesn't work.
  • (2019-02-05, v:0.93) Tanner Barnett: Not working anymore
    No longer redirecting. Chrome 72 64bit Windows 10.
  • (2019-02-04, v:0.93) Nicholas Blasgen: Not Redirecting
    Very odd. Chrome 72 (Mac) is no longer redirecting to Smile. Same issue reported by others.
  • (2019-02-01, v:0.93) Rob Avina: As of last night
    all was working fine, wake up this morning and hit amazon.com and don't get redirected to smile.amazon.com :( Letting you know.

    I sometimes use Amazon UK and it would be great if I could create an exception
  • (2018-07-22, v:0.93) goat on a stick: Incompatible with another Addon
    Does not work with HTTPS Always extension!
  • (2018-05-13, v:0.93) Eugeniu Plamadeala: permissions question
    When I try to install it Chrome asks if I am ok with the extension being able to "read and change your data on amazon.com". Is it really necessary for it to read all data? Since it filters by URL, that should be enough. How can I make sure it does not actually read all my data?
