REVAMPED-THE NEW METHOD

Ok here is the new way this will work....

If you post a link like so:
http://www.ebgames.com/ebx/product/220436.asp

or

http://www.gamestop.com/product.asp?product%5Fid=B645343A

it will appear like this when viewed:

http://www.ebgames.c...duct/220436.asp

or

http://www.gamestop....uct_id=B645343A

The boxart image will be added to the post automatically and clicking on the link will redirect users through CAG's affiliate link so CAG gets credit for the sale.

Currently this works with EBgames, Gamestop, Buy.com, and Amazon.
We haven't been able to get the images working with Kmart and Circuit City yet, but their links get redirected properly.

You should make a new forum (or topic) so if we ever buy anything from these stores we can use the cheap ass link and get you a little dough.

Great idea CheapyD!

I know that. I'm just saying that if we ever buy anything from an affiliate, we should put it in a topic and use it. Unless that is against the condiotions of being an affiliate, but it seems that if we were to buy things from these sites often, we should just do it through here as thanks to CheapyD

He is saying there should be a way to generate CAG affiliate links on the fly in case you want to buy something that isn't already linked from a forum.

I believe if you use the "Store Links" drowdown (at the top of the forum) to browse a store, any purchases made during that session will give a kickback to Cheapy (if that site has an affiliate program). You don't have to link directly to a product.

Keep up the great work!

Gameplay is what makes a game worth playing - not story or graphics
