Grocery & Rewards Programs
Our school and PTO can earn considerable funds through rewards programs offered by Amazon, Harris Teeter, and Kroger. Last year, MLS earned almost $5,000 from Amazon, Kroger, and Harris Teeter through these programs. Follow the instructions below to link your accounts to start benefiting the school with your regular shopping - your support really pays off!
Earn money for MLS by shopping on Amazon.com!
Did you know that 4-8% of the purchases you make from Amazon.com can be donated to the MLS PTO? (This is much more than from Amazon Smile) To earn a donation from Amazon you MUST use the Amazon.com link on the mlspto.org homepage. Once you click on that link, bookmark the page and use it for all of your Amazon purchases. From your iPhone, you can add the link to your home screens (instructions here) to start earning for MLS today!
Remember to RE-LINK?
Your Harris Teeter and Kroger loyalty cards earn money for MLS, but you have to RE-LINK every school year! At Harris Teeter you can ask the cashier to link your card to school code 3247, or click here to do it online. Kroger cards can only be re-linked online, not in stores—click here. It only takes a minute to start earning money for MLS!
Please contact Emily Castle at email@example.com with any questions about the grocery rewards program.
To benefit our school, simply use this link to enter Amazon.com each time you shop. That will open a window with a specific code embedded in it which tells Amazon that your purchased is linked to our school. Any items placed in your cart after you enter will help our PTO earn significant rewards - from 4% to 8% of purchases. Last year, we earned $2,600 from Amazon alone!
This is different from the Amazon Smiles program but works out better for MLS. You'll also find the link by clicking on the orange Amazon.com button on the right of each page on our website.
Here is a quick tutorial on how to add our website to your phone's home screen as a shortcut!
