This is the easiest and simplest way to make money with Groupon. All you need to do is to sign in or sign up at their website. Next, navigate to the bottom of the page and look for a link to "Referral Ads". Clicking on this link takes you to a page where your personal referral link. The referral link is normally in the format "groupon.com/r/uu18692343" where the last portion is unique to you. You can place this referral link in your email signature, blog comments, forums and social networking profiles and posts such as on Facebook and Twitter. Every time someone clicks on this link and buys a coupon, $10 is credited to your account. You can use these credits to purchase any deal you want. In addition to referral links, you also have the option if using images embedded with your referral link. You will need to have basic HTML knowledge to be able to place the image code on your website or blog.
To join the affiliate program, navigate to the bottom of their website and look for a link to "Affiliate Program". The affiliate program is run exclusively by Commission Junction. You be redirected to a Commission Junction signup page where you can sign up for a new account. You then apply to the affiliate program from within Commission Junction. The application is processed and if accepted you receive an email advising you of the same. One thing you need to note is that they do not accept affiliates whose websites have minimal traffic. You must have a website with some decent traffic to be accepted into the program.
