    Oh, my, there are too many for me to play favorites.

    Interesting note, though, my best performing affiliate program last year, light years ahead of the others in sales, would not be on the list. Although we have a profitable relationship, there is never any correspondence and they have no presence here at all.

    Ron: Interesting. We're in a similar position with our better-performing companies.

    For the record, I'd say Google's program deserves at least a nomination.

    Since no one seems to be batting here, I'll venture out and nominate:

    EssentialApparel.com
    SportsFanfare.com

    Two GREAT companies that offer solid product offerings and are proven commission earners for many un-named ABWers. Affiliate support is available round-the-clock (emails responded to at 11PM). Commission rates are generous and the AM sends nice gifts to those who deserve them Oh yeah, both are four-green-bar CJ merchants (soon to be five-green-bar).

    Those credentials would make it nomination-worthy in my book!
    But in any case...

    My nomination has to go to GoodBulbs!

    Well, I only make lunch money with them because my only traffic for their stuff is word-of-mouth, but.....

    On the basis of conversion rate alone, it's BDS hands down.

    This is a tough one but I have to go with Buycostumes this year for these reasons:

    Support - The Am, Kristen always returned calls and the support was awesome!

    Bonuses - They had some good bonus offers plus a pretty good contest where everyone and not just the Big Players could get something out of it.

    The #1 reason is their Zero reversals policy. They stuck to their policy of not reversing a single sale with not buts or ifs

    I'll second that one Packy. They do convert like crazy, too.

    Thank you!
    Thanks Packy and Rexanne ... Kristen here from BuyCostumes.com
    Please let me know if there's more we can do!

    PS: BuySeasons, Inc. (our corporate) also publishes on the content site side and I take care of those efforts too.

    My nomination, since we don't affiliate with ourselves, wink wink, would be 1800Flowers.com -- Awesome affiliate support, creative has visusal appeal that I need. I like that they don't all flash too, stationary is good.

    Also, does Packy have anything to do with the GB Packers. I'm quite a fan and after yesterday's Chicago efforts..."da Bears still suck!" (Sorry Chicago, you know I love you.)

    Thanks, ~kmacbc

    Packy is the guy you see at the end of yet another losing game picking up the litter that their irate supporters throw at the players. He packs it in huge plastic bags hence the name Packy.
    One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.
