this is why we should be repeatedly send email blasts, facebook/twitter postings, etc.

Yes, it is a permanent program.

I just spent a little money, using the link. Any way of knowing that it worked? It just looked like any other time I checked out.

If I wasn't so lazy, I'd read through some of the 12 pages in this thread and find my answer.

If you use the www.shop42A.com link, when are redirected to amazon the address bar should look like this:
↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓

'http://www.amazon.com/?_encoding=UTF8&tag=calgunfounda-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957'

Yeah, but then as soon as you click on the item you want to buy, the address bar looks normal again. There is no way that I can see to verify your purchase was counted correctly.

If that is the address bar you get when you start, it's working...

Then I'm happy. I really like Amazon, now I like it even more.

Still, I'd love some sort of confirmation on the checkout page - but I can't ask for too much.

Is there a way to enter a promotional code on the mobile app?

the thing is its suppose to be transparent, I don't know if amazon is turning a blind eye to what we are doing or if they just haven't noticed. (or don't care at all..I mean cgn/cfg IS referring people)

The way these affiliate programs are meant to work is... you put ads up and hope they get clicked on...when a user clicks on your ad it will send them to amazon and let them know you sent a customer their way...you get a cut of what they buy.

this is how slickguns makes their money (as well as slickdeals etc..) they show you a good deal...and hope that you click the link on their page that will then "take you to the deal" and then they get a cut.

You aren't suppose to really know what's going on. That's why there is no confirmation page

This ^^^ No fault of Calguns but sure would be nice to see 'x% of your purchase went to the Calguns Foundation!'

Wildhawker's monthly totals suffice for now.

Ordered using shop42.com again today. I am curious how we finished up last month. This is a great program.

And I agree with the poster above who suggested e-mail blasts, twitter/facebook, etc. A few well timed reminders would probably do wonders.

I agree. We could probably get 20% more just by really drilling it into people's heads. I know I miss a lot of stuff around here (like the raffle notices).

I just pre-ordered the new Monster Hunter Legion signed limited edition from Amazon. What a win-win-win. A book I wanted, support a majorly pro-2A author in Larry Correia, and support CGF with the order. Awesome!

Thats it, using www.shop42A.com forwards you to the same link, it's just easier to remember and shorter...

A friend asked if there a way to use the affiliate program to credit sales to calguns through the amazon apps.

I downloaded the amazon app from the apple store and poked around with no luck.

Is this even possible or do we have to go through the link to credit the sales?

Saved a TON of $$ but still got some to 2a.. Win

I bought three books from Amazon and then found out about this. They haven't shipped yet but the lady said she can't apply this credit to you guys unless I cancel and reorder? She told me to call the "Associates" and gave me a number to call but they're closed.

If you haven't heard about this program, then you probably aren't getting (or reading) CGF's news alerts. Sign up here.
