    A little birdie whispered in my ear today, that a certain Priceline.com was moving it's affiliate program from "their current one" to Be Free! I'd like to hear how other ABW members feel about the switch.

    Woohoo!

    This is good . . I've been having problems with LS in particular as of late - payment issues with merchants - but never had a payment issue with priceline. I think this will be good . . . plus, a little birdie told ME, they are offering a bonus incentive for anyone who makes their first sale in the new program by the end of the month, regardless of whether or not they have already had their first sale in the program to date.

    It's kind of a new program first sale bonus!

    It's going to be a lot of maintenance changing a bunch of links so I'm not real happy about it. The $50 bonus won't cover the labor costs.

    this kind of thing happens all the time, you just have to roll with it Whiz!

    whether its LS to BF or BF to LS or CJ - it happens just like we take merchants on and off our sites if weren't not happy with those partnerships.

    the bonus incentive certainly helps - i've heard that it's going to be a different amount for every partner though depending on where you land on their sales chart

    i'm waiting for my email so I wonder how mcuh mine will be!

    Yep...

    Looks like BeFree has decided to become the low-priced provider these days. At a time when CJ is raising its prices, it certainly appears that BeFree is willing to do business at a loss in order to spin a win.
