    So I get an email from PetFoodDirect telling me to remove all the coupons I have posted. This ordinarily wouldn't be a problem except the coupons are from their mailing list, which of course is free to their customers.

    The problem is that now I have no coupons (or at least not very good ones). So if by some luck, I drive customers to their site, they could very well sign up for the newsletters and get the coupons. Then those customers would simply use the email coupons to click through. So I would lose any future sales because I can't post the codes that went to people who I referred in the first place!

    Somehow this doesn't seem right. Basically I'm being told to promote a site so that they can give the people I referred to them a better deal.

    Been thinking about this, and it affects all sites, not just coupon sites. If you have PFD and send them to their site and the visitor signs up for their newsletter, they will be inundated several times per week with 20% off coupons.

    There is no incentive to keep using your links. Perhaps if others showed an interest, we could elicit change.
