    This would not be a good idea. By forcing users to Amazon in order to unlock content on your site, you are sending Amazon customers who have no intent to buy solely to take advantage of the 24 hour cookie in hopes that they happen to buy something. Amazon will not look favorably upon such a tactic.

    It would be different if you were promoting specific products/niches and directed an interest audience to said products/niches on Amazon. Or, if you were promoting Amazon itself as the "World's Best Online Supermarket" and had a general affiliate link to Amazon's homepage, but forcing users to Amazon simply for the cookie drop is akin to cookie stuffing.
