    I was reading their TOS and found this:
    So that means I am not allowed to cloak the Amazon affiliate links on my blog?

    You can cloak your links as long as you make very clear to your visitors that the link point to amazon. For example, 'click here for more info' in not OK. 'click here to buy on amazon' is OK. Linking images to amazon using cloak links is not OK unless you include some kind of text on the image that the link point out to amazon. There is another section in the OA that clarifies link cloaking. Don't remember from the top of head where it is, but it's there. You have to read the whole thing.
