Cool

It's back now

Actually JL is good and pay on time, so apart from this glitch this doesn't apply to them : I'm getting really fed up with all these credit card offers. So much darn hassle to earn a few hundred extra per month.

Anybody know any good credit cards per-lead (preferably pay on application not on approval) offers/programs ?

No I'm fairly happy with JohnsonLane. I average 1 or 2 leads on them per day. This is a conversion rate for me of about 1 in 10. Incidentally I'm sure that they pay for completed applications (whether approved or not) assuming they are unique, genuine, etc.

I've also tried some others:

NextCard (using Websponsors) - I had a few last couple of months. About 1/30th conversion ratio. I think they pay for *approved* applications

Merrick Bank (used to be in Websponsors, but sadly gone). I think this was per acceptable application like Johnson Lane. Conversion rate was like 1/20th or so

Now trying CreditNow (Commission Junction). This is per acceptable application (I sent them e-mail to ask). So far only 1 lead from about 40 uniques, but too early to do the stats probably. Disappointed with this so far.

Overall I'd say
- Johnsonlane is the best one
- i only get good conversion because I have a little site about credit cards, and then work on driving US credit card traffic to it from everywhere else I can, plus search engines
- Everybody I know whose tried credit cards in banner circulation has similar results to you Kris. Basically unless you have a credit card site or mini-site - there's probably more lucrative ways to use your banner space.
