    eBates TV Commercial
    Just saw my first TV commercial for eBates. I don't know, maybe they have been on for some time now and I didn't notice. I found myself explaining to the TV how eBates steals commissions from other affiliates.

    I saw one a few weeks ago (only one I've seen). I posted my displeasure about them on Facebook (due to the commercial), had a couple of replies from relatives -- "I bought from them, what's wrong?". Explaining it to them was a ***** (they barely know how to use Facebook, check email, etc) but I think they understood.

    Unfortunately, eBates sounds great to shoppers. They love getting a check from eBates for shopping and have no idea or could care less what really happens under the covers so to speak.

    I just noticed eBates has an affiliate program on GAN.. how ironic.

    They are offering to pay $5 for every signup if the customer make a purchase over $20 in the first 90 days. Classified under "Apparel and Accessories".

    I know affiliates creating affiliate programs is a legit business model (eBates aside), but I think it's misleading. I've seen valid coupon/shopping sites promoting OTHER affiliates probly without realizing. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.

    Parasites are all over in GAN. Sears sent me a link in May for "Upromise Automotive Placement". I quit using Sears link subscriptions after that. If they want to partner with parasites, let them do their own promotions.

    GAN isn't the only network.. CJ launched a program for "Desktopsmiley" last year.
