Thanks! You paid $429.99 for that Champion Power Equipment product via our Amazon Associates links, which provided me a $30.10 commission. Shopping at Amazon is a win-win, with low prices for readers and blog revenue to help keep things cranking here. Instapundit occasionally reminds his readers how this works:
InstaPundit is an Amazon affiliate. When you shop through the Amazon links on this page . . . you support this blog at no cost to yourself. It’s much appreciated when you do!
That pretty much sums it up, but from time to time I like to provide more specific examples — from the monthly sales report — of how this works: A reader bought a $179 Kindle, and I got a $12.53 commission. Another reader bought Adobe Premiere video-editing software for $84.99, and I got a $6.30 commission.
For more than a year, I’ve been trying to get some reader to buy a $20,000 diamond ring via Amazon, because if I could just sell one . . .
Well, no takers on that deal yet, but it’s coming up on the holidays, and so I’ll encourage you to shop our Amazon links for great bargains.
