    I need to build a link on linkshare to target but they dont offer a link to their wedding registry page - can anyone post a "jimmy" rig that will let me earn my keep while sending my visitors to this particular page?

    Thanks in advance.

    you might also ask those here who are familiar with Target's conditions whether or not you'll ever get credit for a sale there. By the time someone gets their needs into the registry and a sale results from it, you may be well outside the alotted time and the cookie has already expired.

    anyone?

    Your entirely correct that a a link to the free gift registry is totally worthless even if the pay a commission on those actions. The only way you can make that work is if you setup a free wedding planning site for each of your visitors with your own cookied link to the Target and other merchants gift registrys. Every commissionable action would have to be made from your own pages. If not ...this is just a well devise diversion practice rehearst by AM firms. Some Dupers even run their own gift registry site/service to whack other affiliate cookies for those merchants who could give a crap who gets the commission.

    They don't pay commissions for wedding/baby registry, or the gift certificates.

    Not to mention being infested . . .

    "CleanMerchants.com - Clean Monkey's Lookin'..
    Clean Monkey's search on target found the following infestations!
    1-20 of 20"

    I tried running Target ads and it was a waste of e-real estate.

    Don't just drop Target ...drop all the programs this 3rd party AM firm runs as they're all infected with the same advertising mindset.
