Frequently Asked Questions


Why will we be awesome together?

You provide valuable content to your loyal readers, and we work with the biggest and best brands out there. With Target, Walmart, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Hotwire, Expedia, Lowes, Best Buy, and thousands more, no matter what content needs you are looking for, we have deals, coupons, and Cash Back opportunities you can share with your readers. By helping your readers save money, you encourage them to visit your site more often. And as your readers click, engage, and save with, you earn. That’s what we like to call a win-win.

What is the Deal Network?’s Deal Network is an affiliate blogger program that has some of the most flexible and lucrative payouts in the industry. Even better, we are able to offer payouts for every merchant on our site, so you don’t have to individually apply for each merchant like many other blogger affiliate programs. With text links, banners, buttons, promotions, and more, you choose what is best for you and what will make you the most bang for your buck.

What will this cost me? Do I really earn money?

The application is free, and once approved you have access to more than 100,000+ deals at any given moment. Plus, one application gives you access to thousands of brands.  Once approved, you are free to post (and earn!) as much as you please!  We have flexible monetization options that are designed to adapt as your blog and audience grows and changes.

This sounds amazing! How do I start?

  4. Once you’ve been approved, we’ll contact you with all of the goodies to get you going—access to the promotions hub, banners, reports, and more.

How do I know how much money I am making?

We want you to know exactly how you earn from and how your posts perform. With our daily and monthly reports you will be able to track what links are being clicked on, what merchants your readers like, and how you are getting paid. With that knowledge, you will know what your readers respond to so you can continually optimize your posts to maximize your earnings potential.

What is the commission structure?

Depending on the size of your blog and behavior of your readers, there are two ways to monetize your blog:

  1. Bonus Per Action, like a user signing up (for free!) through or downloading one of our free browser or mobile apps.
  2. Pay Per Click based on the number of visits you send to our affiliate retailers through (Our top earners receive up to $0.65 per click!) 

Every thirty days (or sooner, depending on performance) we will review the performance of your site and raise your payout as needed and/or adjust your payout on an ongoing basis. The more quality traffic you send, the better your earnings will be.

How often do I get paid?

Affiliate blogger checks are delivered every month (net 30 days). All affiliate bloggers must reach a minimum of $50 in earnings before a check is issued. Once you have reached the minimum earning, you get your check.

Where do I get my links?

Obtaining your links is easy. You can pull your affiliate link from any deal or offer, store page, or promotion on the site. You will receive daily customized emails that will pull in the best offers available with your own personalized link attached. And finally, through the promotions hub, you will be able to check and see what cool things we have going and pull links, banners, or buttons that will each contain your personalized affiliate link.

I’m outside of the US. Can I still be an affiliate?

Unfortunately, only gets paid on US traffic, so if you are a site outside of the United States, you cannot participate in the Deal Network.

I have more than one blog that I’d like to use affiliate links for. Can I do that?

First of all, good for you! And second of all, yes. You will simply need to create a unique login for each of your properties. Your links will have different tracking for each site and you will have different reports from each site, but you will receive one aggregate commission check from all of your sites.

I still have a couple of questions. Can we chat?

Of course! We love talking with our Deal Network bloggers. Send us an email at and we will get after it.
