    I finally remembered to come back and click on the Amazon banner when I decided to upgrade my speakers! Got a pair of 6.5"s and a set of wiring adapters!

    Hopefully, xjtalk will get the straight cash homey!

    Yeah that's the hardest part, remembering to click the banner ad. Thanks. I just checked. It's not showing up yet, but I believe it has to be shipped first. I'll check back!

    So far we're up to about 22 after about 375 in purchases!

    Just made another purchase using the link... Hey do you know if the link will still benefit xjtalk if I purchase something that was already in my cart from a previous session on Amazon when I hadn't used the link?? Like the other day I threw a few items in my cart while I was surfing at work... but couldn't access from work, so wasn't able to get the link, so I just saved the cart and moved on.. now if I was to click on the link, and bring up Amazon from the link... then purchase the items I had saved earlier in the cart.. would those purchases still credit towards ??

    That's a good question. Send me a PM with what items were in your cart and I'll check the list to see if got credit for them.

    Remember when you click on our Amazon banner and then purchase something through Amazon, your purchase goes on the list that we use during the XJ TALK SHOW! segment "You bought what?!?!?!"

    So before you buy from Amazon, go to the xjtalk.com home page, click on the Amazon banner.

    Make your purchase and then keep listening to the XJ TALK SHOW! (www.xjtalkshow.com) and listen for us to read the item you bought! No we don't say your name, in fact we have no idea who bought what, just when it was purchased and the item name.

    So play along with the "You bought what?!?!?" and support your favorite website,

    Recently an member clicked on our Amazon banner then purchased over 700 in goodies. It's tax refund time you know.

    He contacted us to verify that xjtalk was getting the credit. Sometimes it takes a few days, but we kept checking.

    Well he's received most of the items he's ordered and still nothing showing up in our WIN column. I told him not to worry about it, and it was great that he thought of us, but sometimes these things happened.

    He really wanted to know so he sent me the order numbers, boy there was a lot of order numbers!

    I contacted customer service at Amazon and provided all the order numbers. This is a bit of a "canned" response but it may help the rest of you out knowing what you can and can't do to make sure xjtalk receives proper credit for all your online shopping hard work!

    Hello Tony,

    Thank you for sending in the order number for us to check. I've researched the order numbers your provided and have found these orders were not tagged to your Associates account. I am very sorry, we're not able to provide advertising fees for this order.

    There are a number of reasons why this may have happened.

    - If a customer realizes that they forgot to place their order through an Associate link, and clicks back through an Associate's website after they already placed an item in their shopping cart, then the item in the cart will not be tagged.

    - These items may have already been in the customer's shopping cart from a previous visit to Amazon.com. Items stay in the shopping cart for 90 days. If a customer tries to place an order for the same item and it was already in their shopping cart, our system is set up to not record the same item twice and will default to the first time the item was added to the cart.

    - If they update the quantity i.e. from 1 to 2 items, only one item will be tagged to the Associate account. This is to help ensure that we avoid duplicate orders and customer misunderstandings.

    - If they visit a different site after clicking on your link, the items could be tagged to a different Associate. Each item is tagged only if it's added to the cart during the 24-hour shopping session that begins when your link is clicked. That session ends early if the customer completes an order or clicks through another site.

    For security reasons, I'm not able to offer any additional information.

    I hope this additional information helps.
    She doesn't say in this response but I suspect you could EMPTY your cart, click on the Amazon banner ad on and start over. But really the idea here isn't for you to have to do hardly anything and certainly NOT spend any of your money to help the site. Just catch us next time!

    If you click on the "HOME" or the xjtalk logo top left of each page, it will take you to the main, or HOME page of

    Just below the chat you'll see a cardboard colored banner in the center of the screen. Just below the banner ad you'll see "Help support xjTalk.com click above to make your Amazon purchases!"

    If you click on that banner ad it will take you to Amazon.com.

    Any purchases you make for the next 24 hours will be credited to

    One thing i had thought about is i, and i'm sure others, browse amazon. And while we're there we see items we would like and put it in our cart for future purchase. INSTEAD, just put it in your "Wish List" and it'll be there for later when your purchasing after you click the xjtalk link. That way no one forgets something was already in their cart.

    Say Tony, Is it possible to have the right link so if our wives and friends want to access for our credit they can just click on it and use it from our desk top? Wive buys a lot of stuff from Amazon, but doesn't visit our site

    Click the banner on the xjtalk front page. That will take you to amazon. Drag and drop that on to the desktop. I tried to post the link, but it's too long and the site keeps abbreviating it.
