    Best Buy & The Shopping Channel
    About 6 months ago, Best Buy and the Shopping Channel termianted my relationship due to inactivity (Clicks but no sales). I even emailed them asking for the wisdom of their decision. I didn't receive a response.

    This evening I received pending offers from both these programs that I think are managed by CJ.

    CJ managed programs seem to love to expire inactive relationships. I'm curious if anyone has had a similar experience and if anyone knows their reasoning for their change of heart.

    Right hand. Meet left hand.

    I can't count how many times I've had affiliate managers stop me at conferences and ask how they can get onto my site, when they've just recently terminated me for inactivity. I just want to say, "Duh..."

    MC,
    I respect your wisdom, so I'm asking what you've done in the past. I actually was bumbed when they terminated me. I wanted to remain in the Best Buy program. Now my pride is telling me not to accept their offer. do you think I'm being too stubborn?

    I'm pretty easy-going and forgiving. I usually add them back and hope that they've learned from their mistake.

    Yeah. I think that's a good approach. At least they had change in heart. So I should give them the benefit of the doubt.

    Thanks!
