    Exclamation Warnning: Hottopic.com Links are Dead!
    All links lead to:
    The page cannot be found

    Not sure when this problem started. Did they give out links update notice or I am missing something?

    When i look at my list of CJ merchants, Hot Topic says ends nov 2 in little red print in the date accepted column. Maybe that is the clue? I did not see any email about the program ending

    I haven't heard anything official. Still active. Actually gave them some nickel-dime sales recently, too. Just clicked on a link an hour ago, which worked.

    but I'll be watching for that Nov 2 indication.

    I don't have a lot of sales with them and I wasn't kicked out, so I'm guessing that if you consistently send some traffic and some sales they kept you.

    lol! Nice to know that I met their (apparently) low standards for performance!

    Sorry to reply late. I was out of town for the weekend. The links work now. I think they were updating the site the other day. The site looks a little different and there was a "site down" statement saying online orders were not available but 1800 number was available during that down period...

    It will be nice if they sent emails out to let us know when they planed to update the site.
