What Your Favorite Web Sites Don't Want You to Know This Holiday Season

Share Article

Web sites don't want to tell you they are willing to pay other Web sites to deliver shoppers to their sites. But savvy consumers with their own Web sites can earn the rebates for themselves for added savings.

Niche and big-named retailers like Target, Expedia and the Gap are willing to pay other Web sites to deliver shoppers to their sites. So called affiliate relationships are typically used by larger sites that can drive traffic and earn commissions of up to 50 percent of sales.

But savvy consumers with their own Web sites can earn the rebates for themselves, according to Dan Sondhelm, Internet Shopping Guru at Butterflymall.com. "Just click on the affiliate link on all of your favorite merchants and follow the simple registration process to join the program. When you want to shop, click from your site to the merchant and you will be credited with the commission," says Sondhelm.

The downside... many sites won't send you a check until you reach high dollar values, some as high as $100. So even though you earned the cash, you can't spend it. For an easier alternative, go to cash-back site Butterflymall.com, register for free and you will get the convenience of one consolidated check for your purchases at over 500 stores. The site will keep a small percentage and pay the rest of the commission to you.
