A huge Amazonian “thank-you”

Is “huge Amazonian” redundant?

Not when it’s a pun.

I want to offer my heartfelt thanks to every single person who ordered from Amazon through my portal for the holidays. It’s a way of sendng me a lovely present, while giving gifts to others (or even yourself) at no extra cost whatsoever. A win-win situation.

And now that the holidays are over, it’s still possible to order Amazon products through neo-neocon, although I probably won’t be doing as much reminding about it.

    Do you know if click-throughs via your portal work for Amazon Prime members – and with items already “resting” in their shopping carts – the same way for the portal?

  2. neo-neocon Says:

    davisbr: I don’t think those count, unless they were placed there in a session resulting from a click-through from my blog, and the item has to be ordered within 89 days of that click-through. (Perhaps it would qualify if you remove them, and then go to my blog, click-through and put them in the cart again, and then order them??)

    Here are the rules, if you care to plough through them:

    We will pay you advertising fees on Qualifying Purchases in accordance with Section 8 and the Associates Program Advertising Fee Schedule. Subject to the exclusions set forth below, a “Qualifying Purchase” occurs when (a) a customer clicks through a Special Link on your site to the Amazon Site; (b) during a single Session that customer either (i) adds a Product to his or her shopping cart and places the order for that Product no later than 89 days following the customer’s initial click-through, (ii) purchases a Product via our 1-Click feature, or (iii) streams or downloads a Product from the Amazon Site if the Product is a Digital Product; and (c) the Product is shipped to or streamed or downloaded by, and paid for by, the customer.

    A “Session” begins when a customer clicks through a Special Link on your site to the Amazon Site and ends upon the first to occur of the following: (x) 24 hours (except in the case of Special Links to the myhabit.com site, in which case 30 days) elapses from that click; (y) the customer places an order for a Product that is not a Digital Product; or (z) the customer follows a Special Link to the Amazon Site that is not your Special Link.

    A “Digital Product” is a Product sold under the name “Amazon MP3,” “Amazon Shorts,” “eDocs,” “Amazon Instant Video,” “Amazon Software Downloads,” “Game Downloads,” and “Kindle Books,” “Kindle Newspapers,” “Kindle Blogs,” “Kindle Newsfeeds,” or “Kindle Magazines.”

    Qualifying Purchases exclude, and we will not pay advertising fees on any of, the following:

    any Product that, after expiration of the applicable Session, is added to a customer’s Shopping Cart, is purchased by a customer via our 1-Click feature, or is streamed or downloaded by a customer, even if the customer previously followed a Special Link from your site to the Amazon Site;
    any Product purchase that is not correctly tracked or reported because the links from your site to the Amazon Site are not properly formatted;
    any Product purchased through a Special Link by you or on your behalf, including Products you purchase through Special Links for yourself, friends, relatives, or associates (e.g., personal orders, orders for your own use, and orders placed by you for or on behalf of any other person or entity);
    any Product purchased for resale or commercial use of any kind;
    any Product purchased after termination of this Operating Agreement;
    any Product order that is canceled or returned; and
    any Product purchased by a customer who is referred to the Amazon Site through any of the following:
    a Prohibited Paid Search Placement; or
    a link to the Amazon Site, including a Redirecting Link, that is generated or displayed on a Search Engine in response to a general Internet search query or keyword (i.e., in natural, free, organic, or unpaid search results), whether those links appear through your submission of data to that site or otherwise.

    You’re not an Amazon unless you have a breast cut off so as to fully draw your bow.

    Yeah, I’m a classicist.

  4. RigelDog Says:

    OK, I are an attorney and I cannot quite figure out from the rules they list if my efforts to order through your site have resulted in you getting credit or not, especially since most of what I have ordered have been Kindle books. But I’ll keep trying to remember to go through your link and hope for the best!

  5. neo-neocon Says:

    RigelDog: don’t worry about it. Kindle books are fine. My reading of those rules just mean that if you place books in your cart you have to order them within 89 days, and a “session” ends when you order something, unless it’s a Kindle. Ordering a kindle doesn’t end a session, but ordering a Kindle still gives me the fee.

  6. John Dough Says:

    I too think I contributed to the cause, but I can’t be sure. I purchased a few items via your Amazon portal.

  7. davisbr Says:

    Thanks neo. I’ve got some maintenance upcoming on my old ’96 Cherokee XJ (may it live forever), so I’ll take care to redo the cart from scratch after click-throughs.

    …someone aside from Uncle Sam ought to make a buck off me lol.

    Thank you, I have recently been looking for info approximately this subject for a while and yours is the greatest I’ve came upon so far. But, what about the conclusion? Are you certain concerning the supply?|What i do not realize is actually how you are not actually a lot more well-appreciated than you may be now. You’re so intelligent.

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
