Karlonia Approved for ThinkGeek.com Affiliate Program

February 24th, 2009

Hacked And Frayed Spy Flash DriveYesterday I managed to get approved for ThinkGeek.com, one of the many affiliate programs available under the Commission Junction network. Think Geek is an online store that sells a multitude of creative gadgets designed for technically oriented folks who are passionate about computer lore. From the randomly beeping “annoyatron” to binary clocks and blankets, this site has something that will appeal to almost everyone in this particular genre. They even have a “hacked and frayed” USB cable that is actually a fully functional flash drive, which happens to be the product displayed by the square banner in the upper left corner of this page. You can click on this banner to read the full description or check out the rest of the ThinkGeek.com site.

Meanwhile, here is the approval email that I received earlier:

Hello Karl,

By participating in our affiliate program, you agree to the supplemental ThinkGeek, Inc.

Eventually I am hoping to have someone write up a full review for this site (my brother, who already owns the binary clock and blanket, might be a good candidate for this), but for now you can check out this video of ThinkGeek’s Optimus Maximus keyboard, a product that seems rather expensive but is rated very high on the “cool” factor:

More detail on the keyboard can be found by clicking on the banner below.

Fortunately, there is also a loyalty program called “Geek Points” that will allow you to earn points for buying stuff through the site. These points can be used to redeem for free products that will be included with subsequent orders. Member of the Geek Points program will also qualify for special discounts and promotions that may not be available to ordinary consumers.

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

    Hey everyone - you need to click through to the Think Geek site. It is a fun place to shop for any of your geeky friends (or for yourself). I have purchased a number of things from them in the past. They are reliable, ship fast, and have good customer service. You also earn Geek Points on each purchase - goes for various free items…

    I just got accepted to the thinkgeek affiliate program as well. Do you know if they are similar to Amazon where you get a commission even if they order something else than the item they click on from your site?
