Just below the top left of the main webpage it will show the charity name Nephrotic Syndrome Trust', you know then you are signed into Smile. Forgot? Log out, sign in via Smile, and you basket is still there!  No Catch.Or you can use this tool smilematic which automatically redirects to amzonsmile. Many Thanks for your support!
