    Walgreens Buys Drugstore.com
    Drugstore juggernaut Walgreens this morning announced that it will acquire online retailer Drugstore.com in a transaction with a total enterprise value of approximately $409 million.
    Boom! Walgreens Buys Online Retailer Drugstore.com For $409 Million

    Personally, I don't regard this as good news. I'm always skeptical when a brick and mortar buys an pure Internet company. I think the corporate cultures will clash and the affiliate program will suffer.

    Merchants, any data you provide to Google Shopping should also be in your affiliate network datafeed. More data means more sales!

    I don't know, but I would guess their 10% across the board commission rate doesn't have long to live. Walgreen's program on CJ pays peanuts in comparison.
    2.00% - Baseline
    3.00% on Item List: Baby
    5.00% on Item List: Beauty
    7.00% on Item List: Contacts
    7.00% on Item List: Diet & Fitness
    2.00% on Item List: Electronics
    3.00% on Item List: Food
    7.00% on Item List: Healthcare
    6.00% on Item List: Home Med
    3.00% on Item List: Household
    3.00% on Item List: Medical Nutrition
    7.00% on Item List: Personal Care
    5.00% on Item List: Toys
    7.00% on Item List: Vitamins Nutrition
    Who knows, maybe I'm wrong and Walgreens will get a commission bump, but I doubt it...
