Updates to the Associates Operating Agreement Effective February 1, 2015

(Last Updated: February 1, 2015)

Associates Program Advertising Fee Schedule – Special Offers and Promotions, Amazon Bounty Events

February 1, 2015 version

  • Amazon Bounty Events

    You will earn the bounty specified in the table below for each Bounty Event. A “Bounty Event” occurs when an eligible customer during a single Session clicks on a Special Link to the homepage for the bounty-eligible program described below and successfully completes the bounty action, including any required email validation. Amazon will determine in its sole discretion, in each case, whether a Bounty Even has occurred. For the avoidance of doubt, you and your friends, relatives, associates, or employees are not eligible customers. Special Links to the bounty-eligible program homepages listed below are permitted in connection with this bounty, notwithstanding Section 19 of the Associates Program Participation Requirements. Amazon is under no obligation to continue to offer any of the bounty-eligible programs.

    Referral Rates

    A “Bounty-Eligible Purchase” occurs when (1) a customer places an order for a Product eligible for a bounty, (2) that Product is shipped to (or streamed or downloaded by), and paid for by, the customer, and (3) that Product order is not canceled or returned. For clarity, Bounty-Eligible Purchases are not Qualifying Purchases.

    Without limiting any other reasons for which we may withhold advertising fees under this Operating Agreement, we will have no obligation to pay you advertising fees, including the bounties described herein, for Bounty Events that we determine in our sole discretion to be fraudulent (e.g., registrations made using invalid email addresses, use of bots or automated software, multiple Bounty Events by a single person, repetitive Bounty Events, Bounty Events from your IP address, Bounty Events that do not result from Special Links on your site, or Bounty Events that result from Prohibited Search Placements, etc.). For purposes of the Operating Agreement, Bounty Events are treated as “Digital Products.”

    * Note: You must replace the bracketed language in the Kindle Reading App homepage with your Associates ID to earn advertising fees.
