    eCost shuts down without warning
    Just received this on (7/7), grumble, grumble. Really like to hear about this type of thing BEFORE THE WEBSITE SHUTS DOWN!

    Last July 2, eCOST.com was officially closed. In this light, we wish to thank our CJ affiliates who have helped us in providing some of the best Computer and Electronic deals through the years.

    All affiliate relationships will be expired today. All pending commissions for all shipped products from this period will be credited to your CJ accounts on August.

    We request that you remove all eCOST promotional campaigns and product links from your sites. If not joined, we invite you to participate in the affiliate programs of other PCM family brands, PCM.com and MacMall.com.
    Merchants, any data you provide to Google Shopping should also be in your affiliate network datafeed. More data means more sales!

  2. Thanks From:

    Shoppers determine what has value and they like coupons. Stop manipulating who set the cookie just because you do not like coupon and promotional sites.

    Exactly, shutdown their entire site on 7/2 then let us know on 7/7. I just tried one of their affiliate links, it lands on a 404 page, so they don't appear to be skimming commissions by redirecting elsewhere, at least not now.

    That's crazy to shutdown before the July 4th weekend unless they were out of stock. One can only guess...
