    Thumbs up New AvantLink Merchant: REI.com


    Hello Everyone,

    We are very pleased to announce the program launch of REI.com on AvantLink!

    If you thought our Outdoor/Recreation category ruled already, how about adding the Internet's largest outdoor store to the mix! Promote REI and REI Outlet using some of the most advanced and robust Affiliate tools in the business. REI has been a leader in the outdoor industry since 1938, and they offer a broad selection of trusted gear as well as expert advice and in-depth information about products and outdoor recreation.

    The REI Affiliate program has new management, so expect to see regular sales and promotions featured on the AvantLink platform by Krystofer Glover and the rest of the Affiliate management team. There are many reasons to embrace this opportunity, but I'll specifically mention three things here: regular and dynamic promotions from a high converting site, an intensely loyal customers & membership base, and an outlet that features brand-name closeouts, overstocks and seconds with discounts of 20% to 70% off retail!

    Highlights of the REI Affiliate program include:
    • 5% commission rate
    • 30-day cookie
    • Average order value $100+
    • Free shipping to an REI store for pickup
    • 100% satisfaction guaranteed

    If you're already an AvantLink Affiliate, you can sign-up for this program by following these steps:
    1. Login to your Affiliate account at AvantLink.com
    2. Select 'Merchants' from the main menu
    3. Locate 'REI.com' in the merchant list
    4. Click to their detail page and 'Apply to this Program'

    If you're interested in applying to the AvantLink network and this program, please use the following URL: https://www.avantlink.com/affiliate_app.php

    Let us know what we can do to help you get started. Feel free to contact anyone at AvantLink or the REI Affiliate Management Team, affiliates/at/rei.com.

    Blog Post: REI.com is now live in AvantLink!

    Sincerely,

    Gary & AvantLink

    Have they had this for a while, Gary? This is the first I've heard of it. That's gotta be a sales booster for sure.

    I haven't been able to find out about the "Free shipping to an REI store for pickup" question above yet, but I should mention...

    (forgot to above) ...that the REI cookie has increased to 30 days in AvantLink (from the 7 day cookie they have had for a long time now on another network)

    sfcom, I heard back from Krystofer on the "Free shipping to an REI store for pickup" question you had above. This is not new. He added that it even applies to oversized items, so definitely make that known in your sales content! GBM

    Edited to add: This offer should be in the Dynamic Coupon Feed so if you're using that tool, it's already on your site

    Your application to this merchant's affiliate program has been denied. - Gotta love those auto-rejections

    Merchants don't have the ability to auto reject applicants in AvantLink. I would drop Krystofer a line (email: affiliates/at/rei.com) to see if you can work it out.

    I can't speak for REI, but often times all it takes is some professional level communications to establish a relationship from an initial denial.
