Exactly. What's puzzling is why they even started doing in this first place. I can see it maybe
if it is someone who has never shopped at Amazon before and they gain a new customer. If I click through an affiliate and pick up a freebie, and then several hours later go back to Amazon and buy a lawnmower, that has nothing to do with the fact that I clicked through to get the freebie. So basically they have been paying for a service they're not getting.
