It's Moddy Christmas Time
Would you like to express your appreciation to site volunteers who give so much to Splitcoast? It's time for our annual Moddy Christmas gift to Splitcoast moderators and group leaders, and it's very easy to participate.
Our moderators and group leaders are here every day, working tirelessly behind the scenes to answer emails and Private Messages, to approve and take care of our group memberships, to keep the gallery and forums organized, and to make Splitcoast home to all of you. This small army doesn't get a lot of recognition, but the forums and gallery couldn't run without them.
Many people buy online during the holidays, and no one is bigger than Amazon.com. Splitcoast is part of the Amazon Associates program, whereby we benefit from every Amazon purchase made in the name of Splitcoaststampers. So what we do is take all the proceeds from these holiday sales and give them to our moderators and group leaders, in the form of Amazon gift certificates.
Give the mods a Merry Christmas!
Would you like to participate? It couldn't be simpler, just two quick steps.
1. Click the Amazon graphic.
(You'll find the graphic at the top of this story, and also at the bottom left of our home page. Clicking it will forward you to the Amazon site. Everything will look normal but don't worry, Amazon will recognize that you've come from Splitcoast. Don't see the graphic? Read on for a link you can use.)
2. Shop as normal, and complete your purchase.
For any purchase you make in the 24-hour period after you clicked the link, Amazon will pay us a referral fee. We split up the proceeds between all the moderators and group leaders as a special thank you from the rest of the Splitcoast community.
That's it and there's nothing else to do! Just follow a link from Splitcoast to Amazon, shop as normal, and a percentage of your purchase will go toward our Moddy Christmas gift. Stay tuned to the home page for updates all through the holidays.
What, you're still here? It really is as easy as clicking the Amazon link, but here's some more info that may answer any questions you still have.
There's no requirement that you be logged in to participate, or even that you be a Splitcoast member, just that you access Amazon through the link on our site. Any purchases you make will be credited to us, and gifted 100% to our moderators.
But I already bought something (yesterday | last week)!
If you followed the Amazon link from Splitcoast it'll get credited. If you didn't, unfortunately it cannot be credited unless you followed our link :( We'll count all Amazon purchases made from November 1 through December 31 to the Moddy Christmas effort.
If you'd like to make a direct gift in any amount, you can do that too. Your gift will be added to the referral fees we earn from Amazon, and gifted to the mods. Click the link to get started.

A little more complicated, but worth it
There's also a way that you can make your purchase go even further. To increase the portion of your purchase that comes back to Splitcoast, you can follow an alternate set of instructions. It's more steps and a little more difficult, but it increases the percentage that comes back to us:
1. Find a product you want on Amazon.
2. Look on the page and find the ASIN#.
(this number can be found directly below the product listing, included with the shipping and sales rank information, and usually looks something like this: B000B6MLUA)
3. Plug that number into this address link:
(take out the x's in the address below and put the ASIN# in their place)
4. Reload the Amazon page using this new address, and complete your purchase.
By using this direct link, Splitcoast gets a higher percentage cut than using the standard link from the home page.
