Question Coolsavings Question?

Does anyone know what is going on with coolsavings, at one point they were a very good merchant paying good rates, but i've seen them drop out of websponsers and linkshare! Are they having financial troubles?

Almost forgot this company if you didn't mention. Only one linkshare company didn't pay me properly, and that's coolsavings.com. Actually they didn't pay me nothing.

It happened about half a year ago though. Since then I saw their death.

Doubt it, they probably just have enough members now ( they're like #100 on the web ). Or, they are getting poor conversion ratios.

Cool

I always thought they were doing okay, since they never changed commission rates, but I guess I was wrong.

Thanks alot for the replies!

Hello,

I hope posting outside links are ok here.

I received this link in my email a few weeks ago in a newsletter I subscribe to. It looks as though CoolSavings is having some problems and has cut their sales force. However it appears that they are expecting to turn a profit.

Too bad, they were my top money producers with Websponsors. Hopefully they will return

Here is the link to the article.

Regards,
Tim

Unhappy

Last month, the company cut ten percent of its staff, or 33 people.

hmm, 300+ employee for this kind of company, that's really too much. Now i see why they have trouble. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif
