First, a holiday tradition…
With the Unspecified Holiday Season now upon us, you have perhaps wondered, â€œHow can my gift shopping benefit Eric D. Snider?â€ And the answer lies in the Amazon affiliate program.
Whenever youâ€™re going to buy something from Amazon.com, come here to EricDSnider.com first. Under the â€œBuy Stuffâ€ tab at the top of the page, choose â€œShop on Amazon.com.â€ Youâ€™ll be taken to Amazonâ€™s home page, just like normal â€” except that now there is code hidden in it that will result in a small commission for me on everything you buy in that session.
Itâ€™s not a huge amount of money, but it helps cover the web-hosting fees, and it pays the salaries of the Laotian children who work in my sweatshop. And hey, youâ€™re shopping at Amazon anyway, so why not?
P.S. If you have Amazon bookmarked in your browser, replace the bookmarked URL with this one:
Then you wonâ€™t have to come here first every time.
