    I know that after someone has been given a gift certificate, they've come through my site and purchased items, and I've gotten a commission for those items - so I would assume this is Amazon's way to avoid double-dipping.

    So people need to come to your site with gift certificates, not to buy them.

    That's really bad!

    If someone had a gift certificate, and if especially got it through and e-mail, chances of them going throug and affiliate site is nilch!

    Shrug.. yeah, it's a bit cheap because most people would go direct to the site rather than through an affiliate.

    On the other hand, it's the only gift I know of that you could *email* on Christmas morning [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
