    Did anyone notice that the Buy.com terms for the bonus for the Linkshare club 1st quarter offer are now blank? I remember distinctly that the terms of the bonus offer were up at the beginning of the quarter, now it says "details coming"....the quarter is almost over, how could details still be coming?

    It says, "Details coming soon" for Blue Nile, Target, and Fields too.

    Looking at the company this merchant keeps I'd suggest the outcome will be less then satisfactory. Can we say a completely anominous 3rd party AM firm runs all these programs? You can expect the advice coming from the AM pimp firm will progress to bonuses for standing naked on a street corner covered only by a Front/back plackard showing the merchnat's URL.

    The terms used to be there.

    It's still there in the Google cache.

    Here are the details (sorry if it doesn't display very well), in case the Google overwrites the cache:

    I've got a call into LinkShare to find out why those program terms have fallen off their site, and thanks Michael for posting that cached shot of the tier requirements

    Thanks everyone for the heads' up on this. Somehow an old page went live by mistake. We're fixing the problem now. No targets have changed for any of the participating merchants. Sorry for any confusion this caused.
