Wow, I didn't realize Amazon was so strict about their coupon codes, I posted one on my site with my link to the router deal last week, and I just got this e-mail from them about it today. You can easily find the codes over at SlickDeals or Fatwallet if you're still looking for them, at least. Here's the entry from my logs, looks like they have people searching out the codes via Google. It also looks like Natalie needs to update her web browser to IE 6.0 Service Pack 1:

Here's the e-mail they sent me:
Greetings from the Amazon.com Associates Program.
It has come to our attention that you are posting some restricted coupon codes on your Web site. Please note, all codes beginning with "MAP" are restricted an *cannot* be posted by Associates. In addition, we request that you not send any restricted codes via e- mail or in a Newsletter. All other codes are available to post. If one of our partners decides at some point to restrict a code that does not fall under the "MAP" policy, we will notify you via email.
We therefore ask that you remove these codes within 72 hours and notify us once you have done so. Please note, if we discover you are again posting a restricted code, we will have no choice but to close down your account and withhold referral fees for all orders placed using a restricted code.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns. We appreciate your participation in the Associates program and hope you will continue as an Associate under these terms.
