    Bargain Buddy has entered the fray with a software solution... looks like the merchants are not yet aware of their software practice since I see people like Coldwater Creek and other non-software merchants participating.

    I didn't test their application but I wonder if they are compliant.

    BargainBuddy is a NETorious BHO utilizing hidden bundling and drive-by installs. Just another ValueClick/BeFree/CJ infestation partnership shoved out there as a OPT-OUT adware program. Basically victims have to resort to 3rd part removal tools to get rid of the bargain bugger.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We do not work with downloads as you stated.

    I took me a while to figure out which affiliate this was in our program, but I have been able to do that and that affiliate has been removed from our program.

    Now I am going to uninstall that software.

    Thank you again!
