    New Forum: Groupon Affiliate Program
    With great warmth and fanfare, I'd like to welcome Groupon as the newest forum on ABestWeb! I'm sure many of you already have already worked with Carolyn in the past, and from what she's told me, she's hard at work getting the foundation laid for one of the best affiliate programs out there. Her first step, she said, was to make sure communication channels flowed both ways. So here we are! Without further ado, I hereby cut the ribbon and open the Groupon forum to the masses!

    HOOOORAY!!! I'm SO excited that our ABW forum is live! I know I've worked with many of you before, I hope we can continue to work together.

    For those of you who haven't heard of Groupon before, we basically work with local retailers in over 100 cities to offer deep discounts to consumers, so up to 90% off stuff like massages, mani/pedis and meals. We were just featured in Forbes magazine if you'd like a looksee! But check out the site, one glance and you'll get the drift!

    As for the affiliate program, if you're a current affiliate, I just pushed out a new offer to you. Before I got here, the number of return days was 3. Yes, that's right. Three. I know. I hear ya...I had the same reaction.

    Now it's 30. So, if you are already a Groupon affiliate, go on into your account and accept the new terms. I just pushed them out about an hour ago.

    We've got a great team here too, each one of them will be popping in to say hello, but here's a quick reference for you:

    Carolyn Tang Kmet, dir of affiliate marketing, ckmet -at- groupon.com

    Rick Gardiner, technical lead, rgardiner -at- groupon.com

    Elizabeth Baaki, affiliate development rep, regional/local sites, ebaaki -at- groupon.com

    Julia Kozuck, affiliate development rep, social and blogs, julia -at- groupon.com

    Matt Faloon, affiliate development rep, coupons and deals, mfaloon -at- groupon.com

    We'll all be here if you need anything, and I look forward to working closely with many of you!!
    best,

    It's good to have Carolyn here with the entire team. Sounds almost like Party Time.

    Those macaroons banners are responsible for me adding 10 pounds to my behind. They follow me around wherever I go...

    Then I login and see cake and icing banners by groupon.

    It is a conspiracy...

    but I like it.

    I will apply when I get back from the gym this a.m.

    Has anyone else been dropped from the program? I have done NOTHING wrong other than list the national deals each day on my blog... and they are dropping me for this. Is that allowed?? It doesn't state anywhere in the advertiser description about posting specific deals and she is even listing them daily on this site for us to use. Use extreme caution when joining Groupons affiliate program... month 1... its time to pay... and I get dropped...

    Is there anything I can do about this, as I feel I have been treated unfairly and singled out?

    Hey CShore, nice to meet you...shoot me an email and I'll look into it. I know for a fact that we haven't reversed out any transactions, so that's not the issue.

    I had replied back to the email, you had sent me about dropping me from the program. If there is any information you need from me in order to clear this up, I would be happy to help. As stated before, I followed the rules, have not used bots or any type of aggregators. I would see the deals posted on here and on the Groupon discussion boards and simply copy them to my blog. I did not think I was doing anything wrong. Thanks for looking into it.

    got declined at CJ
    Hi Carolyn,
    I applied for Groupon affiliate at Commission Junction, but got declined. It didn;t provide a reason. What's the qualification to become Groupon Affiliate?
    thanks
