I am a shocker for forgetting to use the Amazon affiliate link. This is usually because I search for something on Google and follow the links to Amazon that way. Buy something. 20 minutes later - "oh wait, I should have used the Geekzone link. Must remember to do that next time." Lather and rinse, repeat.

I suspect I know the answer to this, but is there an easy way to tag all my purchases as coming via Geekzone (e.g. something at the Amazon account level, or at a pinch, some kind of browser plug in)?

Thanks for the interest. On top of our pages there are a few links to Amazon - click any of those and from that point you can buy anything and it will be credit to us.

Or you can add tag=geekzone-20 to the URL (with ? or & depending on the parameters):

www.amazon.com?tag=geekzone-20 (if no other parameters) or
www.amazon.com?parm=10427&tag=geekzone-20 (if there's a ? already there)

So, yes, easier to use the links on top of the page.

Would something like the following work? Not sure of the bona fides and there is one query about whether it may be against Amazon's terms of service.

Seem to be plenty of equivalents in the Chrome Store, though some (I think) are designed to turn an Amazon link you post into an Amazon+Affiliate link.

It should. Only Amazon US though.

Also all Amazon links posted on Geekzone are automatically changed to our code.

How does it work when we buy things thru the app? I usually browse on the PC but then will eventually do it on the app after adding to my cart, since some of the deals recently have been quick to sell out, so I put the reminder in the app and then hit buy there when it comes up.
