Just one minute! I dropped out of Smile - since Amazon makes the donation and takes the deduction from their corporate taxes. We cannot list the deductions on our taxes. Weasels!

Hey 87,000 IRS agents, I know someone's taxes you should check!

Yes that's how it works, you aren't paying any extra, amazon gets a write off, SAF gets a decent check, win win win.

If you do not itemize your deductions, fine. If you do, you lose and Jeff Bezos wins. I thought to myself: "Self, who needs the deduction more, billionaire Bezos or poor worn out social security cancer patient me."

Excuse me for being selfish.

You don't lose anything because you are not contibuting anything to be able to deduct, anyway. Forcing them to pay out of pocket to SAF does give them a deduction, but it's also cash out of their pockets. Or... diverting a portion of money you would spend anyway to something worthwhile vs. lining their pockets a little deeper.

The only way you get any deduction is paying out of your own pocket directly to a charity.
