Any affiliates using coupons.com? If so, whats your opinion. I faintly remember them as having parasites or leaks or something negative about them. Is their installable toolbar trustworthy?

If you're a merchant doing business with coupons.com, your customers are getting screwed with malware when they go there. Choose your partners wisely.
If you're an affiliate of coupons.com, you are helping to spread malware.

Last month I published an article on my website called "A Guide to Safe Shopping".. it covered the toolbar topic; I also provided a link to Ben's excellent report.
It has a prominent spot on my home page, and if it helps just one reader, I'm happy. My site is content-driven with product recommendations, but I'm also now trying to educate online shoppers. I was getting frustrated with the issues facing affiliates, and decided to do something about it.
I also launched "coupon" pages (updated manually) for some of my stores, and since the site has achieved high rankings for generic fashion terms from content, my site SERP is P1-3 (using store name & the word "coupon").. up there with the big boys. Who knew..??
I just wanted to share this as a tip for other publishers like myself, who don't have access to high-end tools or comparison engines.. if you keep your site going with content, you have the power of your own words to help educate visitors!
