    SAS Merchants: Utilize the "Coupons & Deals" section!
    If you want to get exposure on coupon and bargain sites, you might want to look into the "Coupons & Deals" feature on SAS.

    This lets you define coupons and promotions that you're running. You can select a Start and End Date, include a Title, Description, and Restrictions, and can assign a Category and a Coupon Code (if applicable).

    When you enter your coupons and deals there, it's put into a special list. Affiliates can see all the coupons and deals for all merchants.

    Many bargain and coupons sites regularly scan the list regularly. When we see a merchant with good promotions, we apply. When we see new promotions for merchants we already work with, we add them to our sites. It's a great way to get added exposure!

    What kind of promotions could you list?

    * If you're running any coupons, list them.
    * If you're not running any coupons, consider running some!
    * If you offer free shipping with a certain size order, list that.
    * If you're running a limited time sale, list that.
    * If you have a really great price on a specific, popular product, list that. (I wouldn't recommend listing more than a few products.)

    How can you make the data you enter most useful for affiliates?

    * Make sure to enter the End Date. Use "Never" if it's ongoing. If you decide to end or change an ongoing bargain, make sure to let affiliates know.
    * Use the Title and Description/Restrictions together, similar to an AdWords or Overture ad. Keep the title brief. Put extra detail in the Description and/or Restriction fields.
    * If you use a coupon, enter the coupon code (preferrably in UPPER CASE) in the Coupon field. Don't add extra text there. Just the code.
    * Use the Category field to group your bargains in a way that makes sense for you. Keep the categories short. For instance, "Coupons", "Shipping Offers", and "Sales".
    * Make sure to keep your bargains updated if things change.

    Ditto! That is the very first place I check each day. I've even joined up on several merchants just because they piqued my interest from their offers.

    While there are quite a few merchants that use that section, it could use a lot more merchants participating in it.
