One of the beefs I have with some stand-alone programs, as well as with some affiliate networks, is their requirement that affiliates be U.S. citizens or operate sites that promote products only to other U.S. citizens. I've always wondered why it matters where a site is based if I can direct U.S. citizens to their site.
Fortunately, companies like Commission Soup understand that Internet marketing is a worldwide activity. Commission Soup is a network that sells credit card offers exclusively to U.S. citizens, but it doesn't discriminate against non-US webmasters who want to promote its products as affiliates as do some other networks. In fact, Commission Soup accepts affiliates from all over the world, with the stipulation that, "All of our programs (U.S. credit card offers) are only available to U.S. citizens, so you will need to have a site that markets to the U.S." Hurray! A site where sanity prevails.
Commission Soup has very strict guidelines when it comes to email marketing. So strict in fact, I wouldn't bother going the email route with them unless I had a lot of time to spare.
Here's the blurb from their site:

It’s so much easier than you think to create unlimited wealth online. I’m going to show you exactly how in my comprehensive guide. Affiliates are making more money than ever these days easily cashing in while they are off doing other things. It’s nice to know you can bring in a massive income while you’re not even monitoring things because you will not be personally selling anything. You don’t even have to speak from the people that order from you.
