    So I'm finally using the amazon account I've had for years by doing some Pinterest stuff. What's the best way to use your amazon aff code? It's not like the cpa affiliate codes such as peerfly.com/your_aff_code.
    If I go to grab the link, it's an iframe. How can I shorten my amazon aff link to something manageable that will bring the user to the actual item page and not the little icon that I'm getting?

    I use Prettylink in conjunction with WP. That way I am not spilling my link info to another site.

    When you click on Link to this page chose TEXT link only!!!

    This is how a normal amazon TEXT ONLY link looks like:
    HTML:
    <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001UBB9GM/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=amazonid-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B001UBB9GM">Apple iPhone 3G 8GB - Unlocked</a><img 
    Now copy this part only:
    HTML:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001UBB9GM/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=amazonid-20
    ...go to bit.ly and shorten it to amzn.to/keyword-keyword
