    littlegrads.com
    Is littlegrads.com's downloadable app a cookie stealer? I'm guessing yes as they run a service like upromise.

    Hmmm, check this out:
    Little Grad members do not have to shop via our web site...

    If that is the case, it would certainly seem as though their downloadable app is not in compliance with network rules. How else is Little Grad tracking the sale if not through a click on an affiliate link on their site?

    I was thinking they were dirty since they make a download app available.

    Definitely a forced click cookie setting parasite with an added MLM incentive program to sucker in friends -Grandma and other relatives. Surprised they don't even go the Mypoints route and actually send out daily merchnat e-mails where you get 5 cents/click to open a merchant site and then close it without buying a thing. Basically a cookie washing, overwrite or setting fee for the BHO perps not liking the tag of a "Get paid to click" site.

    You can bet that promoting major network merchant's, like OverStock, guarantees your referral cookie gets overwriten by over 50 similar "incentive reward" BHO on 1000 brand merchant purchases. Want to see BHO's mating rituals? Install LittleGrad.com with eBates, Mypoints, Upromise etc etc and type in any popular major merchnats site into the browser address bar. It's becomes a ecommerce porn flick as the Adwhores mud rassle each other till one remains on the top.
