Best Buy recently reacted to the “economic crisis” by cutting affiliate commissions from 1% to .25%. Many have reported backlash across the web about this because it’s such an incredibly stupid move on their part. Perhaps cutting this commission will save money up front, but by losing so many affiliates and having such a negative reaction, they’re sure to lose money in the long run.
Angel at Revenews.com has a much more detailed writeup of this. I’m just helping spread the word. If you were thinking about becoming a Best Buy affiliate, I’d say… don’t.
