Thread Details

Just in case you were interested in one of the bundle deals for the Echo Dot (2nd gen) [amazon.com], you should jump on them quick. I just received this email from Amazon this morning to my Amazon Associates email account:

Dear Amazon Associate,

You may or may not have received a marketing email regarding the introduction of the Echo Dot. We regret to inform you we are pulling the Echo Dot bundle deals from the site. Please make updates if you posted links about any of the following bundle deals.

The buy 5 get 1 free and buy 10 get 2 free deals will still be available and the Echo Dot at $49.99 in both black and white options is still available for pre-order.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Sincerely,
The Amazon Associates Program

I added the Ecobee bundle just now, then added only 5 more DOTs,. The DOT6PACK promo code worked (It counted the "free" DOT along with my extra 5 DOTs) and subtracted the $49.99 promo amount.

"Total before tax: $448.96" for 6 DOTs and the Ecobee.

Yeah, they're still there for the time being (except for the Bose bundle, which they've already removed since my post), and they count towards the Buy 5, Get 1 Free promo. But according to the email Amazon sent out this morning, the bundles are being removed, so if you want one of the bundles, better jump to it.

It's where you sign up on Amazon and basically get a referrer link ID to add to Amazon links you are promoting, which you then get a percentage of the sale for. I use it for linking back to products I review on my YouTube channel. That way if someone sees my review and likes the product enough to click through to buy it, I get a tiny piece of the sale (typically 4% to 6%).

If you click any Amazon links from SlickDeals, you'll notice on the following Amazon page that a part of the URL reads "?tag=slicinc-20". That is the referrer ID. If you buy just about anything on Amazon during the next 24 hours after clicking through from SlickDeals, SD earns a cut of that sale. Even if it wasn't for the original product that was linked to, because that referral link still got you to visit the site and buy SOMETHING. The caveat is that if you happen to click ANOTHER associate's link before you buy something, they get the credit instead. It's always the last associate who referred you to Amazon who gets the referral credit on the sale.
