    Why do you think any of them are worth promoting?

    Maybe if you already have some traffic for their products and have some time to kill, but I would not go out of my way to use them.

    One thing you may want to keep in mind if you want to sell laptops is that Laptopsforless doesn't even sell laptops. With a name like that go figure!

    Show me a merchant that converts better than LFL on the items they sell and I will eat my hat.

    And unlike the others, they are a Clean Merchant™

    tigerdirect is like a reformed criminal that goes back to their old ways.

    I like laptopsforless, very easy to convert, though be aware that you won't make a lot of money with them even if you do make a lot of sales.

    As for tigerdirect, I dislike them since the andy days. never joined an andy program after that, worst merchant ever...

    The Geeks have that huge diversion to e-mail trick they play on OOS items and don't have their individual product database purged of older OOS items. Basically I don't see any BF merchants actually accurately tracking click totals. Must be some new data mining app ValueClick inserted into the BF clickstream. Selling surfing info and SEO/SEM fees is more profitable then relying on network cuts on non-parasitic affiliate traffic.

    Sure would be nice to see someone like NewEgg.com take off and run a clean program. TD used to rule the roost but even they dodn't want my 150 targeted clicks per day when they conversion/tracking went south.

    LFL has worked for me. TD is okay too. All this given the limited choices above.

    I just emailed NewEgg at marketingATnewegg.com asking if they have or are planning to offer an affiliate marketing program for web site publishers.

    I will post any good news.
