Amazon announces associates get 10% kindle sales

*Per Email to Amazon Associates 11/30/07* [In Amazon speak, Associates are people who sign up to funnel Amazon sales referrels, not employees]

Earn 10% on Amazon Kindle Referrals - Including $39.99 on the Device
Dear Amazon Associate:

The Associates program is excited to announce that Associates can now earn 10% in referral fees on the Amazon Kindle wireless reading device and Kindle Edition books.

What is Amazon Kindle?
Amazon Kindle (http://amazon.com/kindle ) is a revolutionary portable reader that wirelessly downloads books, newspapers, magazines and blogs to a crisp, high-resolution electronic paper display that looks and reads like real paper, even in bright sunlight.

Kindle customers, no matter where they are in the U.S., can wirelessly shop the Kindle Store and download new content — all without a PC or a WiFi hot spot. Amazon pays for Kindle’s wireless connectivity so there are no monthly wireless bills and no service commitments for customers. The Kindle Store contains over 90,000 books that can be purchased and delivered wirelessly to Kindle, each in less than a minute. Customers can choose from hundreds of top newspapers, magazines and blogs and have their subscriptions auto-delivered wirelessly. All New York Times Best Sellers and New Releases are $9.99, unless marked otherwise.

At 10.3 ounces, Kindle is lighter and thinner than a paperback book, carries two hundred books, and includes built-in access to The New Oxford American Dictionary and wireless access to the Earth’s biggest encyclopedia, Wikipedia.org.

Earnings
Associates are eligible to earn 10% in referral fees on both the Kindle device and content. With Kindle priced at $399 you can earn $39.99 on each Kindle purchase you refer. We do not yet pay referral fees on subscription content such as Kindle newspapers, blogs, or magazines, but we will be announcing that support in the near future.

Building Links
Building links to Amazon Kindle is no different than other products on Amazon.com. To build a Product Link, simply visit the Product Links page in Associates Central and select "Kindle Store" in the search menu. You can find the Kindle device itself under the "Electronics" search menu. You can also build a Slideshow or My Favorites widget to showcase your favorite Kindle titles.

We have also made Amazon Kindle banner graphics available to you in Associates Central.

To link directly to the Kindle device, simply substitute your Associates ID in the link format below:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=YourIDHere-20

Learning More
To learn more about Amazon Kindle, please visit the the Kindle detail page on Amazon.com where you will find a wealth of information including video demonstrations, product specifications, and more. As always, please contact us if you have any questions or feedback, and thanks for your continued support of the Amazon Associates program.

Guess they are not as generous as Apple (who gave an IPhone to every Apple employee). lol

I think this was a one-time thing though. In general, it'd be interesting to know what kind of discounts Apple employees get for Apple hardware.

Use it for yourself. Set up an associate account for yourself, and then purchase your kindle and all content through it (will save you 10%).
