Re: Buying through an affiliate link to get a discount

Let me be clear. I do not want to pick a fight with anyone here. I do not wish to break any law. I am not looking to falsify anything. I don't think it is wrong for me to defend my position. I do not...

Re: Buying through an affiliate link to get a discount

The best for whom? The seller, yes. Not for me.

It doesn't matter if I would buy with or without the discount. I want the best price I can get.

It's a bit like game theory. There are 3 scenarios for the buyer and seller:

1. Full price sale - best (win-win)

Re: Buying through an affiliate link to get a discount

If you own a company, that is a separate legal entity to yourself. If the company buys it through an affiliate link the individual creates, is that unethical? It is within the rules.
