    Thumbs down Legendary Whitetails Affiliate Program Closure
    Legendary Whitetails Affiliate Program Closure

    Got this on June 1st, 12noon CST
    Email says, we are bailing on June 1st, 5pm CST

    From: ttrepanier@deergear.com

    Dear Legendary Whitetails Affiliate,

    We would like to thank you for your past participation in our affiliate program. Unfortunately, we have made a business decision to end the program at 5PM CST today, June 1, 2007.

    We will remit payment on all commissions earned on Net Orders received through an affiliate link based on the terms of our Agreement, plus any earned outstanding payments currently owned to affiliates. Affiliates sales commissions will not accrue after today except on Return Visit conditions which will end, at the latest, June 30, 2007. If you have changed your contact information, please update your profile at LinkShare so you can receive your final commission check in a timely manner.

    Pursuant to the Affiliate Agreement between Legendary Whitetails and you, this shall serve as formal written notice to terminate that Affiliate Agreement. Per that Agreement, you are required to remove any and all banners, buttons, text links, product images and store fronts that link to our program.

    We sincerely apologize for the lack of notice, please understand that it was unfortunately unavoidable. We once again thank you for supporting the Legendary Whitetails Affiliate Program and appreciate your compliance with Linkshares' termination provisions.


    Sincerely,

    Mark Kaiser
    Marketing Manager
    Legendary Whitetails

    I didn't get a chance to check emails until now. Just done pulling out their links and banners from my site...shouldn't they give out the notice a little bit earlier? Or they simply do it to get extra free traffics from affilites

    The late notice is likely due to Linkshare not allowing them to announce it any earlier. I doubt they are getting any free traffic. Linkshare usually causes a 404 error on expired merchants.

    Linkshare should at least allow merchants to announce(especially for deactivation notices) a few days earlier so affilites have enough time to replace links/banners .

    Not true at all.

    Mike Nunez announced that he is closing his program on LS a week or so with constant emails.

    He migrated to SAS

    This is just a guess. Mike Nunez is an OPM so he may not be held to the same contractual obligations as the merchant.
