Books, Music, and Groceries - oh my!

We have begun an Amazon Associates program just recently and it has been very successful. When you click on a link from the RGBP blog that is linked to Amazon, RGBP, Inc. gets a little piece of the pie. Many of the purchases have come from links which have been from the books we are discussing monthly. However, if you use the Amazon search box on the sidebar and go through there, we also will get a little credit for you using that. Below is featuring April's book, led by Cheesehead:

Christianity For the Rest of Us
by Diana Butler Bass
Book discussion will be posted on the fourth Monday in April, April 23.

On with more info.
Below are the statistics from the purchases which have been made through the links:
TOTAL REFERRAL FEES 7 (items shipped)
Revenue $119.51
RGBP earned: $6.90
(April 1 - April 8)

TOTAL REFERRAL FEES 20 (items shipped)
Revenue $293.12
RGBP Earned: $17.62

We don't know who ordered what, but we do know what folks ordered - here is the list:

Christianity for the Rest of Us: How the Neighborhood Church Is Transforming the Faith

Leaving Church: A Memoir of Faith

The Last Week: What the Gospels Really Teach About Jesus's Final Days in Jerusalem

Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith (Cover Image May Vary)

Annie's Homegrown Shells & White Cheddar, 7-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 24)

U.S. Mills Uncle Sam Instant Oatmeal, 9.6-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 6)Serenity

Tena Discreet Activewear, Ultra Plus Absorbency, Medium, 18 pair (Pack of 2)

Sto-Fen Gold Colored Omni-Bounce for the Canon

LightFull Smoothie, Peaches & Cream, 11-Ounce Units (Pack of 12)

Wolfgang Puck Chicken & Dumplings Soup, 14.5-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12)

So..... as you see, it's not just books you can purchase, but you can also purchase items for a camera, groceries, music, movies, well, you name it.

Right now, if you go to the RGBP store, you will see that there are "rooms" where you can purchase groceries, music, books and other resources. Do you have something you order regularly from Amazon? I know I do (and I am not telling you what, but it is in the store now.). If you buy it through here, it helps our one of our favorite organization!

What ideas might you have to place in the store? Would you like to give a book review? Do you have book discussions at your church or a popcorn theology night where you have a movie you are going to show and discuss? We can place that in our Amazon store!

Thank you if you have already ordered through Amazon through our Amazon associates program. Ideas? Email and let us know! (or leave a comment).


  1. Are y'all for real!?! I can purchase this stuff too?
    I odnt see any import ale on that list.

  2. Yep, I get my Uncle Sam's Cereal with mixed berries in it - can't get it around here!!!

    Just go through the search portal on the side bar and RGBP benefits!

  3. Just figuring out whether my amazon UK purchases can be made to count- I'll let you know!

  4. yes I can- provided the book is available through amazon UK - Ican redirect from the US site- cool!

  5. When I tried to order a book from our amazon store I got a security alert saying that it was going through a non-secure connection.

    Anyone know if that is a problem or why I got that message?

  6. QG, I just keep on going when the happens - and it does happen to me.

  7. Can you please open a revgals UK account for those of us over this side of the pond.

    oops just saw Sally's comment and I'll see if that works here. Loads of books I want and some I even need (for seminary!)

  8. I thought publicizing the connection was a breach of contract ....
