    Build A Bear closing
    Just got this email via CJ..

    "At this time, Build-A-Bear Workshop has decided to discontinue their current Commission Junction Affiliate Program.

    The program will be deactivated on Tuesday, April 12th."

    Hope they pay up, they still owe me commissions.

    Guess the PMG girls couldn't pull it off. I had been doing OK with Build A Bear.

    Thanks beachcom, I wasn't aware of the email. Build A Bear was the only program I promote with PMG, guess they made my mind up for me. I hope they pay commissions owed as well.

    This is the second program I've done for them..the first one Good Life Bottles crashed a few months ago. Maybe it's a sign.

    I got the email today through CJ mail system:

    Dear Affiliate Partner,

    Thank you very much for your support in the Build-A-Bear Workshop Affiliate Program.

    At this time, Build-A-Bear Workshop has decided to discontinue their current Commission Junction Affiliate Program.

    The program will be deactivated on Tuesday, April 12th.

    Please ensure all Build-A-Bear Workshop links are removed from your site by this date.

    Again, we appreciate your participation in this program.

    Warmest Regards,

    Build-A-Bear Workshop
    Well, too bad that never converted for me but I never put much effort into it. Been meaning to but never got to it. However, it does stink that they just started their affiliate program jun 2010, had a big announcement, etc. and to terminate so quickly for those who have invested time into this.

    BuildaBear.com will be managed by LinkShare it was their choice to move to LinkShares network and management as LinkShare is managing other things for them as well, consolidation of management is a choice they decided to make!

    Thanks

    So sorry to see they closed their program with CJ - it was a perfect match for one of my sites. I'm not a big fan of LinkShare.
