Hey Matt...could you find an easier way to help you out here with the Amazin' link...

I just looked over my CC bill, I spent a little more than $3k with the Amazin' co since November...only some sporadic ones may have been originating here...reason...well I find something on any of the various promotional sites, then go to Amazin' do the whole shopping thing just to remember "Ah! that AS joint..."


It's a PITA to go back here and restart the whole process....is there a way of copy/pasting some ref link once I am already on Amazon, without having to restart the whole process?

I think so.

Just add &tag=appleswitcher2-20 to the end of any product's URL, then hit Enter.

Please do not add the tag and then click Refresh, because that would simply get the same regular page over again. You'll need to paste &tag=appleswitcher2-20 to the end of the URL, then hit Enter key.

You'll need to do that with every product you buy, i.e.: it's not a "blanket" tag for your whole shopping session like surfing in on the AS-Amazon link is.

Some of their product page's URLs are huge and hairy, so I'm not certain it will work all the time, but my Associates account has a link checker, and I've thrown a bunch at it and they've all been successful.

Thanks cccc :P

Thanks for that, and no problemo amigo.

However like I said, only a small portion of that, was beneficial to this site,
but it should be better with the new/additional instructions though.

Maybe you can add the above instructions to the first post in this thread as well :!:

Not only does the search feature rock around here (apparently, I never use it so I don't know)
but the PM seems as solid as a Mitsubishi from 1984...


Tried to PM you Matt, no idea if the thing works, PM keeps showing up in my outbox, looking to me like it hasn't been sent... :?

Anyway point is the order we discussed above /\/\ , has been received,
check your Amazin' account see if the copy paste instructions were "foreigner" proof :wink:

Cheers!

It'd be neat if Amazon's site let you know the tag worked. Am I missing something?

I was buying some large quantities again today and still limited me to four. I will wait a week and try again. Amazon has the best price too.
