    Great coupon syndication site besides Coupon Cabin?
    I'm looking to syndicate good online coupon codes datafeed into my consumer website. I like what I see at Coupon Cabin -- they have good coupons from great stores and they actively encourage syndication.

    Are there other sites out there I should consider? I also like sites like Cool Savings, but I can't find any info on their site about syndication.

    May I suggest you consider GoldenCAN? http://www.goldencan.com/affiliateinfo.aspx

    And be careful which coupon sites you promote. There are plenty of sites with pretty big name recognition that have reputations for disseminating Adware and Spyware. Just do a "trademark + Spyware" search before you affiliate with a coupon site so you can get an idea of what the reputation of the company truly is.

    Hope this helps.

    ForMeToCoupon.com is fantastic, albeit expensive.

    Wow Michael, you weren't kidding, ForMeToCoupon.com is EXPENSIVE: $500 to $1500 a month! *gulp*

    Does ForMeToCoupon.com have any competitors worth mentioning?

    It's cheaper than hiring a full-time employee, which is how they market it. It also helps keep things limited. You really don't want 1000 other competitors with the exact same coupons, do you?

    Unfortunately, I haven't seen anywhere near the quality, accuracy, and comprehensiveness anywhere else.

    Coupon Cabin requires your site to be in the top 50,000 sites to qualify for the syndication program.

    ForMeToCoupon is too expensive for new sites.

    GoldenCan doesn't have a good display, but otherwise works well.

    I have a domain name, but need a technology partner to start a good shopping site.

    Doesn't have to be all coupons.

    Nice if it was a white label mix of coupons, comparison shopping, and shopping search.

    Please - somebody white label something like this and tons of shopping domains will run your technology and split the commissions with you.

    I tried ForMeToCoupon out but not sure if I was using it correctly but they had a lot of expired coupons in the feed. But they also have parameters for skipping the expired feeds. Still testing it out to see how well it works for a friend of mine getting into the internet business.

    Glad the thread was bumped. Never saw it before. Here is a plug for AvantLink. We have had coupon feed syndication tools for all merchant self-managed deal feeds for almost 5 years now.

    Not only can Affiliates automate/syndicate the deal feeds to their site(s), but they can promote RSS subscriptions to these feeds as well. As far as I know the option to secure a cookie via an RSS subscription end user click is only available at AvantLink. More info, if you're interested..

    At $500 a month, thats about $20 a day to break even. This might be worth it for sure if you are actively promoting your site...

    If you aren't actively promoting your site, you aren't doing the "marketing" part of affiliate marketing

    ForMeToCoupon does an excellent job and their customer service is awesome. It is expensive, but try to find a FT employee to code in that many coupons/deals for $300 a week. I can't do it and I own the site

    Shoppers determine what has value and they like coupons. Stop manipulating who set the cookie just because you do not like coupon and promotional sites.

    My notes on the networks in regards to getting syndicated coupons / data

    ---
    SAS, Avantlink - easy to get coupons / many ways of grabbing data for coupons

    Linkshare - there coupon web service is great - its alittle new and some of the AM's out there seem not to use the right categories - but I think as i keep bugging them to fix it - most of the coupon offers will be up !

    GAN - I dunno - not that many options, only some promo links thru emails and a crazy way going to each merchant page and dl stuff manually- waste of time

    People been requesting a API from GAN for a long long time - still no intel on when or if thats coming ...

    CJ - hmm they have a API, but its not that user friendly, you have to create custom filters for like each merchant data pull and be able to filter out expired offers and other parameters ( i havent had the time to do all that but its possible)


    Other networks like buy.at, pepperjam - etc I dont know .. no experience / not on there networks yet ...
    OpA! Giasou Ti kanies!
