Community rewards being when a company gives some % of what you’ve purchased to a charity of your choice. They get the tax credit for donating, but you get to say where to the donation goes.
We got an email from the local library that noted they’ve got a community rewards thing going with our local grocery store. I checked to see what we were signed up with, and it turns out to be the local private school that DC1 went to that has since gone out of business. Our grocery rewards ($4.51 in the last quarter) were going to support their daycare center… which isn’t really a great use of the grocery store’s money. After determining that DC2’s elementary school wasn’t signed up for rewards (though the richer elementary schools out by our favored grocery store were…), I went and changed ours to the local library, even though it’s closed for renovation until the summer.
I had remembered to update our amazon smile when the private school went out of business (our amazon smile now supports the closest planned parenthood)– though I need to be better about remembering to actually use it and not just the regular amazon as I buy this year’s holiday presents.
Do you use community rewards? Where do you send your reward dollars? Do you remember to update them?
