    On the topic of the "contest", I got an email/newsletter from a merchant who is switching exclusively to CJ in the near future and shutting down their BeFree program. Someone had asked why they were doing it, to which the reply was "It's been communicated to us that CJ is planning on folding the befree
    platform altogether by the Fall/Winter.
    "

    Get your guesses in now folks!

    Hmm,

    It's interesting to me how "SWAG" as in (free) Stuff We All Get

    has now turned into "Schwag" and is related to bad marijuana, at least in the urban dictionary.

    I always heard of SWAG being the stuff you get at a trade show or at a big corporate conference or concert.

    Cool idea for a contest - what kind of schwag are you guys hoping to get?
    - I am not young enough to know everything

    There's a few ways to spell it:

    Don't matter.

    Nice Trust. Even nicer, Webmarm. But do please look up the meaning of schwag (or swag for the purists). You've got me a bit nervous.

    Yep, there's a hint. Now factor in how long it really takes to make things happen. Anyone who voted a date this May or June, you may want to reconsider.

    So far, I've scrounged up a cap, a gym bag, three embroidered button down shirts, two t-shirts, and a fleece/nylon reversible vest. I'm pretty sure there's a pull-over fleece kicking around here somewhere. I'll post a picture on the site soon.

    Several of the ones that are left are behemoths that can't move fast. I would be really surprised to see BeFree go away in 2006. The last time I counted, I was still working with something like 30 BeFree merchants.

    Many also have real sweetheart deals with BeFree and are in no hurry to switch over to a network that charges a 30% network fee. Even SAS or the CPA networks would look incredibly expensive to some.

    Well being a BeFree merchant I've been told the official word is that they are not renewing any contracts.

    So I do not think there is a definitive end date. Just when the last contract expires!
