After reading some of the parasite threads here, I began to go through and start deleting some links. I also contacted some AM's, one of which was a LS merchant, who promptly responded to my query about them using eBates. She stated that eBates doesn't overwrite LS affiliate code and to stay on top of tracking records.

What is the LS, CJ and SAS reality(vs. their stated policy) with eBates and their ilk? Does SAS really police their merchants to make sure they don't have parasite affiliates? Do LS and CJ just give lip service and you should try to avoid their merchants who don't have an upfront policy or are run by responsible AMs (who I found in this forum)?

I feel like I have handcuffs on before I'm really starting! Thanks for any advice and tips.
