    Anyone getting a slew of Private Offer invitations?

    Not only am I getting a bunch - but they all seem to be coming from merchants I do so little business with that I have to double-check just to see if I'm an affiliate!!

    Also - and this is complaining just for the sake of complaining - how come we always have to log in and Accept the Private Offer. If they want to raise my commission from 6% to 7% - why can't they just DO IT!

    I have my private offers set to automaticly accept them. You must be a power user at Linksnare to get this privlidge. Most affiliates are in the green user catagory and can not pass on offers that contain up sell.

    While I appreciate private offers, I don't accept all of them. The terms of each one is reviewed. One I got today, for example, was not accepted because of a 0 day cookie. Since about 2/3 of shoppers don't buy on the first visit, 0 return days is not acceptable for my time, effort and money.

    power user = ? = super affiliate
    i used to earn a lot from LS, not now.

    yes, private offers can be worse than the base level.

    maybe due to careless mistake of the person who create the new offer, they forget the return day.

    Not only didn't I remember this merchant, but I just checked my sites - there's not a single link to them on any of our sites!

    So I log onto Linkshare to check Your Account section - and they're there??

    But, there's no check marks in any of the offer categories (I don't seem to participate in any of their various offers) AND things like Activation date and Expiration date are also BLANK!

    Approval Date - N/A
    Expire Date -
    Signature Compliant : Yes
    Check Mailed By: - LinkShare

    I don't have a clue why I'm getting a Private Offer

    I got a private offer today too from a merchant we're not affiliated with and it's in my account with Approval Date as N/A. I've gotten them like this before and as soon as you accept the offer, the date is filled in.

    Didn't need to look too far on this one tho.
    Strike 1: 0 return days
    Strike 2: $50 minimum payment (I haven't signed up for any merchant that has more than a $25 minimum in a loooong time.)
    Strike 3: They're listed on eBates and I didn't look any further.

    Poopie, where do you go to set up auto-accept of private offers? Didn't know this was an option.
