I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

Commission Junction is Shady, IRHO (In Rob's Humble Opinion)

I was going to add some affiliate links (you click, I get paid) for restaurant.com, whom I really like. My family are repeat customers for them.

BUT.

Their affiliate program is through Commission Junctiom, cj.com, who IMHO steal from smaller publishers like yours truly.

What happens is that they will deactivate your account if you do not sell enough, have enough clicks, etc.

So, whatever small amount you earn disappears. They will not reactivate. If you want a new account, you have to have a new email. Which they are happy to give. And if that doesn't do well, deactivation.

Google and Amazon don't do this. Which is why we use them.

But then, they're good companies.

Me? PASS. cj.com? FAIL.
