I've also signed up, and have probably bought a few hundred dollars worth
of stuff since then.  .5% is not huge, and is probably more helpful to
Amazon (via publicity) than to AMSAT, but it can't hurt.

I would add that usually I go directly to the Smile page with my link, but
on the rare occasion when I might follow another link or even type in
amazon.com, Amazon reminds me that I am signed up for Smile.  Not bad.
