Program Benefits

Earn commission on referred sales for all products, including magazines, clubs, toys, and merchandise.

Highlights knows that sometimes customers do not make purchases right away. That's why we enable a cookie for that visitor, so you will get the credit if they make a purchase within 30 days.

Our affiliate marketing partner, Commission Junction, will track all affiliate activity and provide you with resources to increase the success of your program. We’ve teamed up with the Commission Junction network to provide you with best in class tracking and payment solutions so you can monitor your site’s traffic, conversions, and monthly commission statements.

The Commission Junction Affiliate Network houses all of the Highlights Affiliate Program’s creative material for you to use on your site. All creative and tracking codes are provided for you on the Commission Junction Network Affiliate Interface. All you have to do is copy and paste the code to your site.

Feel free to contact our affiliate coordinator at lcarr@cj.com or kcoyle2@cj.com with any questions.
