Cabela's affiliate links
« on: June 03, 2018, 04:11:50 PM »
Most members do not use the Cabela's links on these forums, but the same deal is offered here as any other Cabela's link or directly from Cabela's. It is much appreciated when members order through our links. The payoff is small, 3 percent or so, but the revenue helps with operational costs.
I find members posting affiliate links from other forums, members bragging about their purchase and posting other forum's affiliate links to their purchased products. Members and guests from Black Powder Smoke or the 1858 Remington forum, click the link and if they buy the item or browse and buy something else, the other forum gets a commission. How nice.

I was not aware of this, Smokey! Thanks for bringing it to our attention! Kill two birds with one stone, guys!

Not sure I understand. If I click on the Cabela's link at the top of this page and then order as normal, then this forum will get 3% of whatever I spend?

Yes. The links are affiliate links, which is why I ask members not to post links they find after entering Cabela's through another forum's affiliate links.
