    Affiliates United and Sky winning an award for their affiliate program. Better evidence that this awards are 100% BS isn't available. Shaving affiliates to pay this kind of bills.

    If a program is winning an award, it's earlier a trigger for me to not work closely with them instead of the opposite.

    That's what I'm trying to work out. Alex posted, "As far as I know Affutd has NEVER won an award" but I'm (fairly) sure I remember them winning something in the last few years.

    I wouldn't go that far mate. I'd just say ignore the awards, trust user feedback of trusted forum members and if you're still unsure give the programs a go yourself for a month or two which is the ultimate way to find out.

    You're right,I forgot the word 'earlier'. It's a trigger to be more aware for me and part of more research. This kind of bills have to be paid somehow. Usually it are affiliates or players paying for it. Or both.

    Yep someone's got to pay for the fancy affiliate stands and affiliate awards ceremony sponsorships. Not to mention AffUtd's whole business model is based around shaving affiliates to within an inch of their life, then dangling some of the money back at them for top positions on their sites.

    It was in 2013. You must have missed where I posted about it earlier in the thread & TheGooner's follow up post. Lookie here: #13

    Thanks - at least I know I wasn't dreaming it. Alex, you might want to edit your post about Aff Utd not winning. It really was the final moment for me, reducing the value of the awards to zero.

    One joke more in this industry

    What is the sence about a award in this Buisness? nothing!! worst programs are winners, same like fake games. nobody need a award...

    So far, do a good job on your sites, bring players to smile and make money, then you are your own award winner!!

    I don't really pay much attention to the actual awards tbh (for some of the reasons highlighted above) I prefer to do my own research or talk to fellow affiliates about programs before I promote brands.

    I have attended some of the awards however but "back in the day" and thought they were fun

    Sorry my bad - I forgot Aff Utd had won an award but disreagarding that I still stand by what I said within that response...

    This though is a super serious accusation - who said this? If you don't want to make it public tell me or an intermediary and I will go out of my way to show you that the award isn't bought. I can't argue against this without detail but hopefully those that know me and my history in the business will know its completely false.

    But moving on.... Why don't you sign up as a judge here https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/KK27VRK and you can see how it all works first hand and get a proper idea of the process.... No worries if not, just trying to think of a way to show you we aren't fixing things or have any intention to do this

    In what category? "How to cheat affiliates and make more profit?" AffUTD Winners, this fact is insult for all affiliates. Personally, i don't need more arguments...
    Until 2013 Affutd/Cpays have are lot of negative comments on all webmasters forums, are lot of unresolved cases, are negative comments in UK newspapers e.t.c.
    And you try to tell us now, that you don't know about all these facts?
    Anyway, if Affutd pay for sposnorship at this year, my good advice, take money from them before, not after. Affutd love to change the conditions retroactively.

    Paid or not, if Aff Utd and Sky are winning awards for their program, there's really something wrong.

    Agree. As a sports betting affiliate mainly, I find the sports betting shortlist particularly comical. Betway, 888, Betfair etc massive lols.

    As for the best affiliates, same old same old. Back slapping between mates.
