Seems there was a recent discussion about a wine merchant trashing their affiliate program.
In this climate of killing affiliate programs or setting their commissions to zero in hopes they don't notice its refreshing to see a merchant sing the praises of their program. Also refreshing to see the network advise on creating content useful for the affiliates all things considered.

From what I gather, the majority of those sales are coming from the coupon and loyalty sites. I'd argue that any IR 500 brand could get similar results with those types of publishers if they are willing to offer increased commission/payed placements/exclusive codes.

Not necessarily, takes more than 200 couponers to make that level of sales for an affiliate program.
