    Haiko please drop this company like the plague they are.

    When is enough going to be enough, I am spending my day eliminating my site of over 10K links. Is it not bad enough I had to do this not that long ago. When is enough going to be enough?

    I am wondering if they are even going to pay us, this is beyond unacceptable.

    Sandra, I feel certain they'll take the path of others and bail as soon as their contract ends.

    $2,000 sure aint much for exposure for tiger but when all the exposure is bad well...... they'll tuck their tails between their legs and run just like OS did and just like ColdWaterCreek did.

    Make them finish paying Haiko for the honor of us giving them crap "publically" which I know you are fully capable of. Give um hell girl!

    For those that may be unaware, tiger is overwritting affiliate cookies with their own SE links, emails and have even set up their own "in house" affiliate sites that also openly competes with affiliates to further dilute their likelihood of paying you a commish as well.

    They deserve ZERO promotion from all affiliates IMO.

    I've always avoided them just because of some problems that a relative had with an order. I thought their pricing and products looked great, but customer service is important to me too.

    Is the "sister company" the affiliate site, or another merchant? If it's another merchant, please let us know who it is so those who feel the need can avoid them.

    Systemax is the parent company of both Tiger Direct and Dartek. And hopefully, no others.

    A pox on both their houses.

    This from a man who will promote KBToys after they screw everyone out of thousands of dollars. Dude, your opinion doesn't mean much in my book. Have a good one.

    TD's forum is a freebie because they were the first ones to join, beyond that I forsee some interesting developments by March.

    "...my site of over 10K links."

    How about some of us with over 60k links?

    As for the KB toys situation. If someone wants to continue to promote them - so what? There are bigger battles to fight.

    Are you sure the nurses know you're using the computer?

    I did not really like there feed so I only placed 10K worth of stuff.

    Dartek offered the feed after TigerDirect Pulled there.
