Just wondering........ I have bought hundreds of dollars worth of presents by going thru PBS to the Amazon site this week and was curious as to how much I am helping when I do so.

 AND cause I used my Discover Card I was able to use my Discover Rewards cash and get almost $13 off my total due at checkout!   woo-hoo!!

I think they get a small percentage as a commission.

Yeah, they get a percentage. It's quite small but with a large site it can add up.
