Amazon Rebate to Bogleheads

Post by sport »

I understand that if we make a purchase on the Amazon website via the link on the Bogleheads page, that Amazon provides a rebate to the Bogleheads. Can you share the amount of the rebate? Is it a flat amount, or a percentage of the purchase?

This is a great question. I look forward to a direct answer as well.

Usually it's a percentage based on the product category. See Table 1 here. For example, if you purchase a physical book the qualifying revenue is 4.50%. If you purchase a watch it's 4.00%, etc. I assume that is on base price before sales taxes and shipping.

There are also some special "Bounty Events" that return dollar amounts. See Table 1 (a) & (b).
