    Question Are there affiliate networks that offer coupon feeds?
    Hi

    I have a coupon site consisting of articles and a few coupons I have cut and pasted from CJ/Linkshare. The site has done well with traffic and I now want to expand it to offer coupons on a larger scale. I would like to use either a php/mysql database or RSS to bring in updated coupons automatically. My problem is that I can't find merchants who are offering coupon feeds with CJ or Linkshare. Are there affiliate networks that offer coupon feeds? Thanks.

    Check out SAS as they have it. Linkshare has it too and if you are able to automate it, you can easily keep it updated.

    Other site that pulls coupons from networks that I would recommend :
    -GoldenCAN.com

    If they do it's new, this past September they didn't:

    From the LS mod:

    Right now there is no coupon feed, you will need to download the complete feed and filter out the feed based on the Coupon Category.

    FairFieldGetaway-EricEwe got me all excited there. I am hoping he might elaborate a little more.

    LS does not have a coupon feed. They have a link feed (LinkLocator Direct), but it's almost useless as a coupon feed. It doesn't have start and end dates. It doesn't have a field for the coupon code. It has a ton of other stuff besides coupons and promotions in it.

    The LS prog that Michael Coley brought up is correct. It is not a direct coupon feed but close to a coupon feed.

    LS need to look into isolating the problem so that aff can use it. Good idea, implementation could have been better.

    Check out GoldenCAN and there are many merchants on there

    zlittle, we (MusicSpace.com) offer a "coupon feed" through LS. We provide the coupon code, the link to our product, the banner image, the link to put on your site and the expiration code on the RSS feed.

    I too wish LS would have a better feed system install. I personally would only use the RSS feed for coupons / promotion.
