    Odd Opt-In offer from a LS Merchant
    Got one of those emails from a Linkshare merchant that said

    "Mother's day is our busiest. Opt into our new offer of increased commission (but most likely reduced cookies)"

    So I log into see what the difference bewtween basleline and MothersDay is... and see this:

    {Edited to not reveal merchant]

    Baseline Offer | 10%-12% commission on all goods

    Mother's Day Promotion | 15% commission on all goods

    Upromise Program | 20% commission on all goods

    If the UPromise offer - for 20% - is in my account manager, can I click on it?? Why take 10-15% when I have a radio button offering 20%!!

    Unusual to think that a BHO Upromise special offer would exist on any affiliates merchant profile page Billy. Sure hope your affiliate ID isn't farmed out to 3rd party incent Dupers like Upromise with a one click acceptance.

    Yep, it can be pretty revealing when merchants accidentally make private offers public.
