    ULTA Beauty - 0% Commission
    ULTA Beauty has changed their commission rate to 0%.

    Time for everyone to remove their links from your sites.

    Just noticed this, what a joke. I've declined their terms & will be removing them from all featured spots on our sites until they get their act together.

    How is that even possible...
    Why would CJ even allow a 0% commission rate?
    They wouldn't even make money either...

    Weird.

    sometimes a merchant does that just before switching networks. we'll have to wait and see.

    I just don't understand why CJ would allow that... you would think that their programming would auto decline a 0% commission setting.

    Tobi did something like that recently, and their links remained live for a while even after they "turned off all affiliates". Even before the change, sales were showing up in reports with sale amounts recorded, but $0.00 for commission.

    Just got this:

    We regret to inform you that due to unforeseen budget constraints we are going to temporarily shut down the affiliate program for the remainder of the month. This process will begin on December 16. The CJ account team has been working very closely with Ulta to prevent a temporary shutdown, but unfortunately, we have been unable to avoid it.

    On December 9, you should have received a new program term for a 0% commission rate that will go in effect on December 16. However, transactions after December 16 will still be tracked and Ulta will be providing a make good on payouts incurred between December 16 through December 31 in February 2012. The transactions between December 16 and December 31 will be paid out based on your current commission rate as of December 9

    All parties involved realize this is a less than ideal situation and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this will cause. You are a valued partner and we are looking forward to a strong 2012 and anticipate everything will be business as usual in a few short weeks.

    Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

    The Ulta Affiliate Team

    Free sales for 2 weeks... how convenient.
    Maybe it will help them with their "budget."

    I just spent a few hours switching out all of my links to them. Not exactly my preferred way to spend a Sunday. Fortunately, nearly everything that they carry can be found elsewhere.

    Shocking treatment of affiliates... especially during holiday season. Do they think we're stupid..?
