Many weblogs have book lists that are tied to an Amazon associate program wherein the blog author gets a small referral fee when you purchase a book from a click on their weblog. So this holiday season, give your favorite blogger a gift, with no cost to you, by clicking on book or CD link listed on your favorite blog to get to Amazon.com when you make your holiday purchases.
By the way, if you already are an Amazon Associate, did you know that you don't get any credit when you make purchases from your own associates link? At the end of the quarter, Amazon deducts fees from purchases that you made using your own associates link. Yet another reason to share the love and use links from others' sites to get to Amazon.
