Just got an email from Amazon, The bill was signed by brown and today is last day for amazon associates for California Affiliates! This really sucks.
This is what the email says:
Unfortunately, Governor Brown has signed into law the bill that we emailed you about earlier today. As a result of this, contracts with all California residents participating in the Amazon Associates Program are terminated effective today, June 29, 2011. Those California residents will no longer receive advertising fees for sales referred to Amazon.com , Endless.com , MYHABIT.COM or SmallParts.com . Please be assured that all qualifying advertising fees earned before today will be processed and paid in full in accordance with the regular payment schedule.
You are receiving this email because our records indicate that you are a resident of California. If you are not currently a resident of California, or if you are relocating to another state in the near future, you can manage the details of your Associates account here . And if you relocate to another state in the near future please contact us for reinstatement into the Amazon Associates Program.
I am surprised.Is it the problem with amazon or something else?
I received the same e-mail effecting connecticut, My Amazon account has been canceled as of June 1st Due to our Governors change in the budget which increases taxes
Morons keep killing the goose that laid the golden egg. They don't have the brains or the courage to do what needs to be done.
Guess it's time to relocate to another state. Anyone know the laws about how many months of the year you have to live in a place for it to be considered your permanent residence?
