    Amazon because....

    They were my #1 merchant during the holidays

    I like seeing what products people are buying from a simple home page text link

    Pretty progressive in what type of links they have for affiliates, leading the way I'd say

    Like the new Site Strip

    Have more products than any other merchant out there

    Get paid on time every month

    Shoppers love them, big brand people trust

    Sell enough where I get from 7% - 8% on sales

    Recession proof, not worried about them going bankrupt like some other merchants

    Did I mention clean? No OneCause, Upromise or Toolbars.

    ACLens, it's a growing program in an industry that is very competitive. Instead of going the easy route like competitors they're working hard with their affiliates to grow the program the right way.

    eBay, I've only started working with them since they left CJ, certainly have some growing pains but I think they're trying to turn things around and as Trust mentioned, it's a brand people know.

    SitterCity, although I wish they would focus in on one network for the sake of cleanliness, I did pretty good with them last year. It's a great concept for local / regional affiliates.

    CSN, Again a few bumps in the road here and there. But an active manager who tries to be an advocate for affiliates at every turn. If you need a niche product, they've probably got it.

    I'll add my vote for CSN. For the same reasons as Convergence gave -- good affiliate manager and good niche products.

    Can we nominate more than one program, though? If I could add another, it would be Football Fanatics.

    I hereby nominate Football Fanatics.

    I'm going to go ahead and second that nomination, too. Wait. Is that legal?

    Football Fanatics all the way.
