    Cheaptickets Affiliate Commissions
    I noticed that Carolyn Tang is now the affiliate manager for Cheaptickets in addition to being the affiliate manager for Orbitz.

    The Affiliate Program FAQs for Cheaptickets indicates:
    How much do I earn?

    As a member affiliate, you'll receive commissions for referring users from your Web site to CheapTickets.com to book their travel purchases. Right now, we offer you (in USD):
    $5 for each transaction of one or more air tickets
    $6 for each hotel transaction
    $2 for each car rental transaction
    I'm not aware of any other travel agency website that only pays per transaction of one or more air tickets or each hotel transaction, but rather per each airline ticket purchased and each hotel room booked, as the case may be.

    Carolyn, do you have plans to bring this program up to the commission levels of its competitors, including Orbitz, which is owned by the same parent company?

    I sure do! But FYI, I just got the added responsibility last week and still need to get up to speed on the nuances of the program.

    To reassure you all...CheapTickets and Orbitz will remain two distinct and separate brands. CheapTickets tech infrastructure will be improved, allowing us to commission on all products. You will not have to switch out links.

    More when I know more, okay?

    Carolyn,

    Good luck in managing this new program that I never figured out how to make money from. Hopefully you get it off the ground!

    Major hurdle is to make sure your creatives/landing pages whack your commision budgets Carolyn. If not then every affiliates return day cookie will get overwritten by the millions of house account or BHO cookies in those popup Ads.

    Oh, and if there is a way to do this with Orbitz as well, I think I'd kiss you right on the mouth Carolyn... Unless that would stop you from setting up that type of linking, then just a hardy handshake
