    Exclamation Warning: Avoid Montgomery Ward's Affiliate Program at all costs

    I've been an affiliate with Montgomery Ward through CJ for the past two months. The program sounded good - high average sales and 10% commissions with generous bonuses.

    What they don't tell you is that either their business completely sucks, or they scam their affiliates.

    Chargebacks run once a month and instead of finding out you're going to get a great performance incentive bonus, you find out that you're getting 60-80% of your transactions charged back.

    They claim it's because most people apply for credit to pay for their purchases, and nearly all applications are declined. That may nor may not be the case.

    Either way, avoid this program or you stand to lose a LOT of money. It's turned out to be a real disappointment for me.

    I thought Montgomery Ward's filed for bankruptcy couple of years ago?

    They reversed two out of the four sales I had with them so far. They are a mirror site of Home Visions which is also on CJ.
