    No their problem was they were managed by eComWorks and that company has as everyone knows had some serious issues in the past. Not issuing checks and at one point they emailed us asking us not to cash checks they sent out because they were having problems with their bank (aka there was no money in their account) and all the other games they have played. I just got a check from them last week that was dated 12-29-06 I guess they were hoping it wouldn't get to me too quick and the 90 day limit on checks would pass before I cashed it.

    I feel sorry for all of these companies because eComWorks has pretty much screwed them! All they had to do was get a REAL OPM company onboard and they would have been great merchants. Oh well c'est la vie we will move on and without AM their businesses will go for a sh*t.

    Angry Sorry to see them go
    I actually liked the product line and the linking code was easy for me to hide. They had some really cool items that now I have to find elsewhere. It's a shame that a good company has to be destroyed by the predatory practices of others. Where I'll find the products, I have no idea.

    And it's right in the middle of a month, too! I'm running a promotion on them this month! At the beginning of this month, I started pushing spring cleaning and that meant Home Focus and Improvements both! This totally sucks!

    No notice, either! Again! Linkshare strikes again! Please, someone find a place for me to get the stuff I need outside of LS

    At least this isn't LS's fault!

    tn-morgen:
    Can't really tell ya how well they would do for ya, but:

    Get Organized is at CJ - They're managed by Converseon. Not sure if Jamie Birch is the affiliate manager or one of the others there.

    A Trendy Home is at CJ - Not sure who the affiliate manager is.

    Stacksand Stacks is at CJ - Not sure who the affiliate manager is.

    SmartHome is at Linkshare - Lisa Mann is the affiliate manager. Think she posts here at times. She's very willing to help ya if you need any.

    Not sure if they'll help ya or not. Hope so

    There's a bunch of vacuums, etc. sites, too but not really sure what you're looking for. The sites I listed are in the same type of category as the sites that got deactivated.

    I didn't get emails, only the rubber checks.

    Heather Mannion "Manager, Purchasing and Affiliates" runs their program, and she's great; very helpful and responsive to any problem.
