    Buy.com Has Sponsored Links
    Maybe I've just never noticed this before, but Buy.com has sponsored links on their site. If you want to buy a monitor, you can also go shop at Wal-mart, CompUSA and or even Target.com Why buy at Buy.com? lol..Is that insane or what???

    You idiot, those help you with sales! (paraphrasing their am)

    They promised to remove those weeks ago, they were activated by "accident" just in time for the holiday season. Just like every season...

    If you are still an affiliate of buy.com... well.... you might need someone to read this message for you.

    Oh yeah.. duhhhh. I remember seeing that thread now. My mind has been out the window lately. Let me do something useful...and go take down buy.com links from my site.

    This is the newest form of arbitrage. Affiliate to Merchant Arbitrage, they pay us nothing for traffic, then direct the traffic elsewhere via Adsense and other paid listings.

    Soon, I will become a merchant and defraud all my affiliates this way.

    Chetf is correct, Buy.com does something like this EVERY year during the Holiday stretch. Affiliates apparently mean nothing to them. Nothing short of thievery.

    that wouldn't surprise me, I've made more sales with newegg in a few months than I have with Buy.com in a few years and that wouldn't be hard to beat, if you can count 1,2, 3 lol ive sent them many thousands of clicks but something happens to my visitors when they get there and I don't get any sales tracked? something weird going on there...
