Reminder: An Easy Way to Help Eleven Warriors

Today is Cyber Monday (we seriously don't have a better name for this yet?) and you will soon need gifts for family, friends and, in some cases, yourself.

If your gift-buying plans include Amazon, you can help Eleven Warriors simply by shopping. Just use this link to visit Amazon and a small portion of your purchase will go to Eleven Warriors.

That's it. Dead simple. And best of all, this costs you nothing. Feel free to pass the link along – it should work forever.

As we've grown, our costs have grown with us. When we started out, we paid $5 per month for our web server. Today, we pay several thousands of dollars each year for hosting. Whether payroll, travel costs, equipment, technology investments, or the many other things that we now have to budget for, you'd be surprised at what goes out each month.

We're committed to keeping Eleven Warriors free and we have pretty huge plans for the near future. Your help can take us a long way.

Thank you for your continued support.

For those running Firefox I suggest downloading the AffiliateFox extension. Simply add the tag "elevewarri-20" (no quotation marks) into the Amazon.com tracking field and all your purchases will automatically contribute to 11W. I don't know how many times I would buy something on Amazon only to realize afterwards I didn't go through the 11W link. Now I don't have to think about it anymore.

Thank you, sir.

Is there a way to do this in Chrome?

I can't vouch that this will work as I run Firefox and not Chrome, but you can give it a shot. Looks to be about the same as the Firefox extension I posted.

Is there a way to support the site if the purchase is made on one of Amazon's subsidies, like Zappos and Woot?

It would be nice if Amazon had a way to permanently associate my purchases with an entity.

You also need to keep feeding Kyle, Buckeyes are still undefeated since he started here.

Just used the link to buy 180s with built in headphones. That way I can support 11W with an item, which I use to listen to 11W Dubcast...circle of life.

Beautiful. Thanks.

I'm (relatively) new here so I may have missed this feature, but I'd be willing to pay some sort of subscription fee for a little extra content (really, I'd pay for no extra content--I dig on this site). Besides using the Amazon link, how else can we help fund the site?

Welcome to 11W. Really appreciate that. Our goal is to keep this site free forever, but there are other ways to help. One way is to tell friends and family about the site. If you like t-shirts, we sell a few of those, too.

Done and I'll use the link in the future. I purchase items from Amazon multiple times a month.

I bookmarked the link into my bookmarks bar. Now whenever I click on the amazon bookmark it will use the link provided! I do tons of shopping on Amazon and just purchased lots of items over the weekend for Black Friday.

No better time than to start using this link on Cyber Monday. #PurchaseCompleted

Don't text while driving.
