Where are the best retail deals? Who is good at tracking coupons and deals on one website? Numerous websites now focus on providing you with information on the best deals and coupons. One of the better ones is Fatwallet. The site relies heavily on the online community to identify “the real” deals. For those interested, the site is offering an affiliate program aimed at marketing the site and growing the traffic. Here’s an excerpt of the referral program and the cash you can earn by participating:
“A “qualified referral” is a new member of FatWallet referred by you that signs up at FatWallet during the referral period starting November 20, 2013 and ending December 31, 2013 and that complies with the rules set forth below. If a qualified referral makes purchases totaling $25 or more that earn cash back within one year following signing up, FatWallet will pay you $5 for each such qualified referral. FatWallet will pay you an additional one-time bonus for the referral period if two (2) or more of your qualified referrals each make purchases totaling $25 or more that earn cash back before the end of the referral period.” (SOURCE: Fatwallet).
