    Circuit City Boneheadedness
    So I decided it's about time I migrate my links over to Circuit City's CJ program. I've been active with them at BeFree for quite some time and do decent sales with them. After I applied to their CJ program it stayed pending for a couple months when they finally declined my application. I promptly emailed them and asked what the problem was and reapplied. A few days later I'm declined again with absolutely no regard to my email. So here I go with another email and another application..

    They're really starting to peeve me. Does anybody have a phone number I can use to contact their Affiliate Manager? Has anybody been able to communicate effectively with the Circuit City affiliate manager? I can't say that I've actually communicated with a human behind that program, but it's about time I do.

    That happened to me too with another new merchant at CJ.

    I just reapplied and reapplied and kept getting decline emails until finally I got approved.

    Funny though, at my other CJ account where I didn't apply to them, they were the ones offering me their program. ooohhh it's so tempting to hit the decline button.

    This happens to be for my largest and most profitable price comparison site which was built specifically for their niche.

    I just spoke with Kelly who's in charge of the Circuit City program and she was really nice. Apparently CJ is doing the approvals for their program and she doesn't know why my application was declined. Everything should be fine now. For anybody who needs to speak with Circuit City her email address is kelly_powers at circuitcity. She said she wants to work closer with her affiliates so here's your chance to get acquainted with her.

    I'm afraid CJ people are usually the culprits when you can't get into a program.

    Damn ...last time I checked they must be on auto approval for every BHO to come down the pike.

    If she wants to do that, the first thing she should do is kick CJ out of the "affiliate approval" position.

    Not to mention that in general, CJ doesn't know apes about who'd do well with what. I've gotten bugged to join all kinds of programs I know I wouldn't do well with...but hardly any offers for things I *would* do well with! I don't know where they're getting their ideas about who to get into a program, but it sure can't be from a proper reading of the stats!

    I totally agree. I wish I had mentioned this when I spoke with her this morning. This is the affiliate manager's job, not CJ's.
