    Im sharing this method that I used because I dont think it is effective anymore and that prevenative measures have been taken to stop this kind of activity (on the sites I used, not amazon). This method is 100% white hat to use and I did get paid out from amazon. The main reason why I am giving out this information is because I am moving onto other projects and I dont see much money coming from this method now. But I encourage people to try and twist this idea and exploit it to the fullest potential.

    The concept is extremly basic and simple. It involves two sites.
    fatwallet.com
    slickdeals.net

    If you havnt figured out the method by now, all you will be doing is searching amazon deals off of slickdeals.net and posting them onto fatwallet.com. I found it so much easier to post deals on fatwallet.com with my amazon referal link. Slickdeals was extremely hard to profit off of in any way. I tried shorturl serivces, tagging my affiliate ID to look very similar to slickdeals, everything. They just were took quick to take it down, or already had a method to prevent from people spamming amazon products with their affilate ID.

    What I would simply do is, create many accounts over at fatwallet.com (once they found out you were posting your affiliate ID into the amazon links, they would ban or block your account). If you have gmail, it is simple to make many of fatwallet accounts manually . You can do the username+1@gmail.com, username+2@gmail.com method to make infinate accounts. Plus they get approved instantly.
    Now I would head over to slickdeals.net and find any type of amazon deal they had posted (does not matter what it is, find any deal). Then I would search up at fatwallet to see if it has already been posted (if you are quick enough, fatwallet does not get as many deals posted as slickdeals), I then copy the title and the body of the post directly off slickdeals and use that to make a new thread on fatwallet.com. You have to make sure that you use the link to the amazon product which includes your referall ID. Sometimes I had to modifiy the URL posting code so that my referall ID was not visible in the link inside the post (made it harder to get caught).
    Another way of posting deals on fatwallet that helped me not get caught was to update the deal I posted with my referall link the next day. Yes, this way does not drive as much traffic as if you posted the affiliate link when you create the post. But this way sort of lessens the chance of you getting caught.
    Usually they do end up catching on, but which is why I had multiple accounts ready to go.

    So a quick summary,
    find deal at slickdeals.net
    copy and post deal onto fatwallet.com but add in your amazon affiliate ID
    try not to get caught on fatwallet.com
    profit

    Well, that is essentially it. Good luck

    @speedy - Thanks for clearing that question out. I was about to ask the same question as dalio asked. Anyways,

    Not a bad share at all. I'll do some more searches about amazon before applying this method. It'll be better to be safe than nothing

    Hey Roundhouse,
    The link you posted to fatwallet is the amazon direct link or your site link??

    LOL if it were 100% whitehat you wouldn't get banned! Thanks for the share. I guess you tried it already...but did you buy a URL (.info) and try having your affiliate link coded
    with that site then redirect-> to Amazon site?

    This has definitely been posted so many times and will result in you getting banned VERY fast!

    kind of a noob question, but -

    as an amazon affiliate, do you get credited with the sale no matter which vendor they buy the product from, or do they have to buy it directly from amazon? doesn't mention this in their faqs anywhere..

    I code my links through google.

    For example

    hxxp://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=res&cd=1&ved=0CBQQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FPanasonic-TC-P46S2-46-Inch-1080p-Plasma%2Fdp%2FB0036VNSZO?tag=ordcartshr-20&ei=CXTYS_msO4O78gb_4JWwBQ&usg=AFQjCNEHpLtRU__LhWEZqu-DDRnp9wH9QA&sig2=hkCHv6TwT4eYnXXGaGlE2A

    And it contains my amazon affiliate link :)

    these sites auto strip your affiliate id and post their own. What i do is put the product page on my site that links to amazon. Post the link to my site. problem is you cant post a lot of things from some unknown site till your rating is high enough.

    I've been trying this with Fatwallet but they are wise to this method and revise your posts and remove the affiliate link.
