    I am about to use onsite discount module for affiliates.

    Each affiliate will have his unique link:
    www mysite.com/saveab10
    www mysite.com/saveac10
    www mysite.com/savead10
    etc...

    Which they will post on their blogs. The aff link will lead to our home page in 2 redirects.
    Here is the diagram:[​IMG]

    Will this kind of links help our SEO?
    Or should i replace 302 redirect with 301 redirect?

    John Mueller stated that both redirect types pass Page Rank and that either will work. https://www.seroundtable.com/google-302-redirects-pass-pagerank-21575.html

    The real issue is that each redirect counts as an additional layer of nested linking. With 2 redirects in front of your final page only 33% or less of the Page Rank from your backlinks will filter through. This is the concept people call link juice. No redirects is best... just handle everything on the server side without the redirects.
