To the Reader Who Bought the 47-Inch Vizio 3-D LCD Home Theater Screen

Posted on | August 19, 2011 | 6 Comments

One of our readers bought an $888 big-screen TV through our Amazon Associates links and thereby earned me a $35.52 commission — thanks!

It’s always amazing to discover that readers are buying high-end electronics via our Amazon links, but what great bargains, huh? And what a huge selection. One of our readers is apparently building his own guitar amp, and bought two 50-watt speakers ($177) and a 2×12 cabinet ($160) via our Amazon links, which amounts to a $13.48 commission for me.

They sell everything at Amazon and — while we haven’t yet sold that $120,000 7-carat diamond ring — I do appreciate everyone who shops via our links.

Of course, the simplest and most direct way to support the blog is by hitting the tip jar, but we’re happy to offer you a chance to get great bargains at Amazon and thereby chip in a 4% commission to help pay the bills around here.

    Congratulations on the big sale! I’ve been an Amazon affiliate since April and have earned a whopping 47 cents in commissions! I think it’s gonna be a long time before I get to that ten dollar minimum payout.
    If you wanna know who ordered some computer mice and a mouse pad through your store recently, that would be me. Not exactly a big commission, but I chose to shop through YOUR link specifically.

    Sorry to say, Stacy, but I now have Bed, Bath, & Beyond coupons, so I won’t be buying my Keurig coffee through Amazon for a while.  Mea culpa.
