DX Referrals

I've been putting DealExtreme referral tags in my reviews when I link to a DX item. I figured it didn't cost anything, so it was worth a shot. I started doing it about 6 months ago (maybe a little longer than that, but I only started getting actual referrals about 6 months ago). Anyway, I finally earned the 1000 points it takes to get a $10 credit. Now, I don't get the $10 for another 2 months because that's how long DX waits to make sure there won't be a refund. Anyway, first thanks to everyone who has used the links. I know some people had to intentionally help me out so I could get points. But it is also interesting to see how few items are returned (there are a few) given DX's spotty record and DOA's. And also, since they sell things really cheaply, how many orders it takes to get to $1,000 in sales.

I also wanted to let you know, there is no way to get rich on this. 6 months to get a lousy $10! Once I get the $10, maybe I'll spend it on some item that I can review to benefit everyone. Or I could do a contest like Don has done, though since most lights are more than $10, I might have to wait a while longer, but could let the winner pick any light (or anything else, I guess) from DX and have it sent to the winner. If it's a $10 credit, maybe people could enter and say what they would order.

Here is the list of orders:

I'm just now slowly catching up with last week's threads (gotta make sure Initech ships a few extra units, you know ;)) but I thought I should add that DX's points system is notoriously unreliable.

 

There are a few old bugs that have been around for at least as long as I've been a customer (one of the most obvious being that you get 0 points for any order under $10 but canceling will still subtract a point; you can use the CSE form to get that dime back but I suspect very few people bother) and sometimes updates break whatever magic ninja backend system they have in place. I remember a period in '09, spanning several months, when affiliate tracking just stopped working and some people were screaming bloody murder because there really are people out there who make a pretty penny using DX's affiliate system (the cash back portion, not the redeem-for-items part). And that's just the referral aspect of it. The points system itself isn't really that much better. I have several orders that I never got points for but since I only use them for my wife's little church project anyway I never really bothered to follow up on that with Astroitboy.

Sounds like a good idea Ted.

 

The Uniquefire AA-S1 is under $10 and a good light. I'd be happy to put your referral ID on any DX links from now on. That way, everyone wins.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.
