Effective immediately, TriRoost has been deleted from the Amazon Affiliates program, for reasons that are unclear, without further explanation other than what you see below. #EAD , Amazon Affiliates.

Users: do not use the TriRoost affiliate link. "Related Products" links have been removed. Remaining banner ads are Google Adwords and are OK to click.



To paraphrase Céline, our site will go on. There are still ways to pay the bills. But I know everyone liked using the TriRoost Amazon links, especially over the holidays, and I will miss the outpouring of support that has been shown as you have made me a part of your seasonal consumerism over the years.

Obviously, nobody is going to stop using Amazon. I know I'm not. My suggestion would be to use DC Rainmaker's links (I'm not going to link to his site lest he be sullied by my bad name). He's helped us all at some point.

Thanks to our current Patreon patrons ( https://www.patreon.com/TriRoost ), Patreon earnings from the past year and a half or so paid for our 2019/2020 hosting! And if you really want to channel your retail therapy into TriRoost support, feel free to use the following links:

    IANAL, but is it just me or does paragraph 3 read "someone you may or may not know bought something that may or may not have been for themselves for some reason".

    It's probably the, "or have been made by your friends" part.

    I say we run a campaign to let Amazon know that this is impossible, since Webstey does not actually have any friends.

    @AaronWebstey ... that's some serious bullsh!t.


    I still have my Amazon account for my podcast / Youtube videos. I made a whopping $192 for the entirety of 2019. I need to double check the math, but that's *maybe* enough to pay for my website hosting?
    ...
    ...
    Wait - just checked, and my hosting costs $218 per year. I'm in the red!

    @gregk post the link! Just make sure you don't have any family, friends, coworkers, Twitter followers, or Grindr hookups out there who might use it to buy some fucking $4 coffee pods or whatever

    Man I wish I could understand all this cause I'm so lost as to the cause of Amazon's actions. I mean it cant be legit unless there was a sex crime, political incorrectness, racism, attacking the wrong competitor, mental instability, or simply incompetence.

    Time to fess up @AaronWebstey

    (While I too have zero tolerance for these behaviours, Mr. Webstey, I will stick by your side forever - it's a true sickness yet to be classified and named)

    @AaronWebstey

    Here's my sweet, sweet link:
    https://amzn.to/2S9mBto

    I did a bunch of research when I started my account with them, and it really just looks like they use it 100% to their advantage and give themselves every opportunity to not pay you the commission (i.e. if they think the person ordering knows you), or just kick you out of the program. I don't get paid the commission on pretty much any purchase from Florida, which is at least 80% of my potential revenue.

    But yes, @Tad_M I'm pretty sure that @AaronWebstey is up to no good, and the Amazon overlords found out about his questionable past.

    Don't feel too badly, they treat employees the same way. I got this message today after missing a few days due to a car accident where I t-boned someone at 30:

    Hi,

     

    Thank you for letting us know why you have been absent. Regarding your attendance, you have missed 3+ shifts at work and unfortunately you have exhausted all of your time off options since you have 13+ points/negative UPT as of today.

     

    Attendance is very important to the success of our business.  Due to your significant absence, we will need to process a separation of employment. However, you will be eligible for rehire after 365 days. You are welcome to reapply in the future, if you wish. I do wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors and please feel free to reach out to the ERC at 888-892-7180 for post-employment questions.

     

    Regards,

    From: Kyle Hilgendorf

     

    As I had previously noted in a message to HR through A to Z, I was in a no fault auto accident on Tuesday, 1/7. After working a shift that evening, I found I was unable to adequately complete the tasks required of the role, and both spoke with a supervisor and submitted a leave of absence on A to Z noting this. I requested a call from HR to discuss the situation, and was also assured by the supervisor I spoke with that we would be able to work around the attendance policy in this instance. Please give me a call to discuss this situation.

    Hello Amazonian,

    We hope all is well and we wanted to take a moment to remind you of the AMZL Attendance Policy. Your engagement is critical in order for Amazon to be Earth’s most customer-centric company! According to our timecard records, you have not reported to your last three consecutive shifts and you are currently in violation of the attendance policy. At this time, you have a negative UPT balance or have exceeded the attendance point threshold.

    In accordance with the attendance policy, your separation of employment will be processed on Tuesday January 14th 2020 at 12:30PM EST. You will be eligible for rehire 365 days after your date of separation.

    If you believe you have received this message in error, please respond directly to this email by clicking “reply” with details by Tuesday January 14th 2020 at 12:30PM EST, or you will be terminated for attendance. Please note, you are able to confirm your punches and status at http://atoz.amazon.work.

    Regards,
    HR Centralization

    At least they pay their taxes!

    Great to see my company also made the list after 3 years of lay offs and executive raises.

    Yay accounting and corporate tax law. After years of amazon banking tax credits from massive losses (due not to lack of sales but outsized expenditures to fuel growth) they are now finally putting that to good use.
    The business part of me thinks, "fucking genius!" The human side of me thinks, "fucking tax law!"
