I looked at my Amazon Associates Account today!

I would like to thank those fine individuals who purchased though my Amazon Associates account.
I hardly ever check it as it is not that often that people buy though it.
But, I got a notice that I had a gift card from Amazon. So I checked.

SPT Energy Star 3.2 cu. ft Double Door Stainless Steel Refrigerator!!! What the heck?!

OTC 7121 Pencil-Type Fuel Injector Nozzle Puller, (my brother-thanks!)

Books purchased: 
How Do You Kill 11 Million People: Why the Truth Matters More Than you Think
Nathan Coulter: A Novel
Theo Gray's Mad Science: Experiments You Can do At Home - But Probably Shouldn't

MP3 Downloads
American Pie
Farmer's Song

Beethoven: Les 9 Symphonies (Box Set)  Could it be Zeta Woof or is it merely a coincidence? I wish he allowed comments on his blog!  I would return the favor and purchase though his Amazon Account as I don't get the discount if I use my own. But I do not have any credit cards any longer and so can't buy from Amazon myself. If I do it will go on my wife's credit card and I don't do that unless it is an emergency-like I'm out of underwear... I will have to see if I can apply the gift card credit or if the gift card has been spent...

And for that I say,
Thank You Very Muchly!


  1. Budde, I had no idea you got a "kickback" from amazon this way. Does it work on too? I bought a dandy Ingersoll Rand air impact wrench from this winter so I guess I could have been on your list too. Next time maybe.

  2. have some idea who uses the amazon link. For at least one of those purchases, I don't think I would want to know. Not local I hope. :-)
    I haven't been buying on Amazon much, but I'll try to remember your link next time.

    1. I think the address was muddy valley road? Probably those guys with the lamas.

  3. I have been aware of this in the back of my mind but have never investigated it. This is the first time I have seen the numbers involved. Interesting. And not a bad return considering you didn't need to go out in the rain for it.

    Grace and peace.

  4. The amazon associates program is not a big money maker. However, I don't really promote it. I think it would be better with targeted Amazon keywords. So, if I talked about stereos or water heaters then adverts for those items would appear.
    Also, since what I buy does not count, I should buy from Zeta Woof, he buys from me and well all make an effort to buy from each other.
    Amazon has everything!
    They have a better deal on mp3's than iTunes, and they are not Apple!.
    On the other hand you should also support your local hardware store...IF you have one left!
