Call me crazy, but I can't believe that CJ doesn't pre-populate all of your links with that "magic code" to prevent re-directs when you pick it up! That would take care of the majority of this problem I would think.....
Think about it. If you have an affiliate program associated with eBates, every time a shopper returns to your site you're going to be paying eBates a commission. Now, if you weren't a member of eBates, the shopper might return on their own anyway because they like your site and you wouldn't have to pay a commission.
Of course CJ is going to promote eBates because CJ gets a cut of the pie. They don't get a share of sales made to direct visitors to your site. So CJ promotes eBates as such a hot property, when in reality itís just a way to siphon more commissions from repeat shoppers.
Those of us without a rewards program have to rely on longer cookies (that hopefully parasites don't overwrite), or the fact that we've designed our pages so well that the customer sets a bookmark and returns to our site first.
