OK i know PBS gets something if I click from PBS to place an amazon order but is that still true if I use a gift card to pay?

Just guessing, mind you, but I would think that PBS gets their bit no matter how the order is paid for, since the gift card was purchased originally.

Actiually I received the gift card as a premium for taking surveys although that must  still mean someone purchased the gift card.

Just be sure after you click to order right away.  Another group I used to be on if you didn't order right away and came back to your order, the amazon link "expired" and the group didn't get their credit.  Don't know if amazon still works that way, but I've made it a habit to order qucikly when using a link ever since I found that out

Marya, I'm sure they would get the credit - it's a really small percentage iirc, and Amazon get lots of exposure on PBS.  Super cheap advertizing, I'm sure, and yet much less annoying for us than regular ads would be.

I always order from the amazon button at the top of the page.
