Linus Tech Tips Affiliates, Referral Programs and Sponsors

Recommended Posts

I'm curious about how this affiliate link thing works, how long it's valid for and what it counts for etc. I get the main idea that if you click an affiliate link all the items you go to and buy in that session are credited to him but what for example if I have a loaded up shopping cart (pre-affiliate link) then I use the affiliate link and buy the cart contents you know, do they need to be added to the cart that session as well as purchased? (Just about to go on a spending spree so want to figure this out) :P it's just unnerving that there is no indicator and the link tag disappears

Can someone pin this in a more logical place on the forum?


It took me 5 - 10 minutes to find the affiliate URLs to go buy stuff.


I think this should be pinned in the top of all the main forums related to purchasing equipment at the least.


To help cover Linus Tech Tips server costs at the very least.

Doing what I can to support the good guys at LTT -- splurged a bit on Amazon, X99 rebuild - so I'll get a little something out of it too. o.O

Maybe the Amazon links should be removed for now :P

So Um.... regarding Amazon - Should I remove my bookmark? or will keeping it there entitle you to some backpay, etc? or would a revolt against amazon help at all? 

Tell us what to do!

Also need to know about the amazon link, I spend loads on there and i mean loads but a shame if you guys cant work out something.

If not do you have anything else in the pipeline ? Ebay would be equally as equitable if not more so.

Will look into adding Amazon links for other regions. It never really occurred to me.

Your Dbrand link is broken on here :/

Guys, I am looking for one sponsored link(ad in the end) what was in one of the videos. It was the site which had video effects for 99$ and you was getting audio effects for free. Anyone have the link for the site? Thanks.

Got all excited about finally having a piece of tech worthy of phantom glass and a dbrand skin... alas neither makes anything for the TabPro S as of yet... :'(

Does the Amazon affiliate code work for Amazon.in (although not specifically mentioned)? Is there any other way to use the above-mentioned websites (with the affiliate code), to ship to India?

Nothing to see here ;)

If we're recommending a product on Amazon to a fellow forum member or to a friend, can we inject your affiliate into it and if so, could you add that to the first page?

There's something cool here - you just can't see it.
