    Circuit City moving?
    Just got an e-mail that Circuit City is ending its affiliate program with CJ on February 6 2007. Any idea as to where they are moving?

    If they've already announced, it's likely that their decision is already made.

    BUT... There are still a dozen or two other merchants left on BeFree. Seems like those would be some good prospects for an ambitious network and/or OPM.

    They were at Linkshare, then CJ maybe now Performics?

    It will take a good sucking machine to pull out all the parasites in that program. Tough sell for SAS.

    BUT... What if ARC and SAS double teamed Circuit City? Bring Haiko in for muscle and go for it.

    i just don't see things changing for guys this big and contaminated - they like partners that leech off their trademarks and domain names. they'll go someplace where ebates can keep sucking money out of the other channels. i think it's because the bonus structures and track records of inhouse folks needs to be thrown out - and business people don't get it - so they'll be thinking about bringing it inhouse to lower costs, meanwhile ebates and all the leeches will go with them without any further thought. i bet people there think of these apps as their "best producing" affiliates. what a shame.

    they'll go inhouse or with performics. if the latter, perf will be doing their sem work as well and the infestation will get deeper, much deeper.

    They made their network decision last summer. I would guess that they will announce very shortly where they are moving. And alot of their affiliates are still on the bfast platform, not CJ. Did anyone on bfast get the email? I have them thru CJ.

    I think that this move will be for the best. Linkshare and Pefromics are both good networks.

    I used to have them at BeFree and had them at CJ and I got emails from both of them.
    Thank you Scott for the information.
    If anybody wasn't aware and have Footsmart....they're going to Performics, too. (well not actually going...they're already there....they're ending at CJ so if you still want them you have to go to Performics.)

    I got one today, think I had one before that too:

    Hello -
    My name is Mary J.and I am very excited to confirm that Circuit City is moving their affiliate program to Performics and I will be the program manager. You should have received an email from Kelly P. last week letting you know that their current program will be ending and they will be launching with Performics on February 6th, 2007!

    I wanted to send an email to introduce myself and let you know Kelly and I are both available to answer any questions you may have. Both of us will be attending the Affiliate Summit in Las Vegas next week, so if you are attending, please seek us out to say hello and/or ask us any questions you may have.

    You will receive further emails with instructions on how to join the program and get set up before the launch. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. The affiliate program is a success because of you and we want to make sure you are comfortable and ready to launch with Performics on February 6th, 2007.

    Thank you and I look forward to working with you!
    MJ

    My email from Mary J just came today. I guess they didn't all go out at the same time. Same content as the email posted by TrustNo1.

    I really don't like these moves from one network to another. More work for affiliates to maintain links.

    There's no mention as to whether the program terms will be the same.

    They just showed up at Performics for me, along with another new merchant Zodiac Watches.

    They are still on CJ as well plus they run Goldencan with CJ. I know other merchants using Goldencan that have moved networks take months before they get GC back up again. Well I applied to the Performics program, I hope they approve me and I can then set up Orangelinks to work instead of GC for promotions which would suit me better anyway.

    Not absolutely positive but think I had received an email from them saying yesterday was the last day for them at CJ.

    I was not a CC affiliate, but got a Performics recruitment letter yesterday. Found them to be in bed with most major parasites. Deleted the email. Moved on.

    For a newbie, how do you determine that they are in bed with parasites? Any quick things to look for?
