Purchase of the day.

From the March 4, 2013 Amazon Associates Earnings Report:

Whirlpool W10295370 FILTER1 Refrigerator Water Filter (Earnings to the Althouse blog = $1.87)

... and 76 other items purchased — at no additional cost to the buyers — through the Althouse Amazon portal.

Thanks to all who use the portal for your shopping needs - reducing cysts, asbestos, the taste and odor of chlorine, particulates and lead, retaining the benefits of fluoride and, all the while, keeping awhirl the imagination and creativity of a blogger called Althouse.

Sounds like an impressive product.

I'll bet it even filters out corpse juice.

I'm not sure that your high-lighted purchases are generating any additional clicks through the portal. The purchases seem to be rather mundane.

Have you thought about high-lighting power tools??

Mead, what brand adjustable tables (desks) did you guys get? Do you like the brand/model?

Can you recommend?

You keep saying that there's no additional cost to the buyers, but where do you think that money comes from? Obama's stash? Of course there's a cost to the buyer.

You could make the argument that this method of driving sales is more efficient than buying a billboard or direct mail ads or something, but every cent a company spends comes from its customers.

Popicola, "no additional cost" means no additional cost beyond the price Amazon quotes you. I think most people understand that.

MadAs, closest thing to a power tool from yesterday's report: Smith's TRI-6 Arkansas TRI-HONE Sharpening Stones System

You can get that motorized desk at Amazon here, though it doesn't say Jesper. It is the same desk.
