    You can save a nice amount of money by finding affiliate programs for items you regularly purchase.

    For example: If you purchase your domains through GoDaddy, CJ has an affiliate program for them. Use your affiliate link and make your normal purchase.

    Another one is clickbank, if you are about to purchase a application or ebook, check clickbank for it first, you could use your affiliate link and save some money on those purchases as well.

    I always like to switch my ip after logging into the affiliate program and getting the link, then going to make the purchase with a fresh ip. I'm not sure if this is necessary or not, its just how I do it. Nor am I sure about how the affiliate programs feel about this, nor do I really care as I have not ever had a complaint from a network.

    Anyhow just wanted to remind everyone that saving money can be just as good as making money...

    Amen to that quote!

    I always wanted to do that but was never sure how to safely change my ip without it raising any red flags with the networks. I'm on dial up but my ip address has been the same for about 2 years.

    It's always a good idea to check the footer or possibly a "Contact Us" page for information on their affiliate program. Most things you buy will somehow allow you to become an affiliate. :)

    Good idea drdank, just as long as you cover you tracks.

    A penny saved is a penny earned,
    Not trying to hijack your thread or anything, but this may be a good time to remind people how much they could save anually by working at home before they even receive any cheques.

    The daily spends on petrol/gas getting to work, the money you spend on coffee and lunch etc. and of the hours you possibly waste in traffic.

    Roughly for me this means I save, $7500 and 2.3 weeks a year saved every year just by working at home.

    And of course the perks of not having a boss, working your own hours and the potential to make as much money as humanly possible equates to a very, very good deal for me an I am sure for countless others on this forum.:D
