Happy Holidays! It is the jolly season and I'm ready to kick off my shoes for a well awaited holiday. Yep, while you're reading this I'll be on my way to sunny South Africa to roam with the animals and touch as many of them as I can (get your head out of the gutter!) Don't worry though, I'm available via this email address on my blackberry while I'm out of the office and will be back before you know it - 16th December. If you'd rather speak with one of the other lovelies while I'm out of the office, please feel free to email Support@RewardsAffiliates.com - and don't forget to congratulate Yaniv on the latest edition to his family in November, Lee.

This year we were lucky enough to be nominated in 2 categories that are votable: Best Affiliate Manager: Renee Mate - Rewards Affiliates Best Affiliate Program: Rewards Affiliates You can place your votes here: www.igbaffiliateawards.com The Best Affiliate Manager category is in alphabetical order based on Rewards Affiliates, so make sure you look thoroughly through the list for Renee's name. The rest of the categories where we could have been nominated for are being judged by a panel. If you need a little more persuasion, you could always check out the video Renee made here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eV-un4PvGY Rewards Affiliates would like to thank everyone who has helped with our success over the last 10 years. We couldn't have done it without you We would also like to wish all nominees the best of luck. This month just to spoil you we have 2 awesome new tools to release. The first is the Horoscope Widget. Put this tool on your site to show visitors their lucky numbers and forecast for the week ahead. Unfortunately this one is only available in English for the time being, but as new languages become available they will be added. You can find this tool under Marketing Tools > Horoscope Widget. The second tool is the $10m Pop. This tool is similar to the spinning banner, only it shows text for our current $10m giveaway promotion with the call to action so the players who are interested in this promotion will sign up through your affiliate tag. The $10m Pop can be found under Marketing Tools > 10m Pop. With the Jolly Season upon us we have pushed live some banners for use during the holidays. The banners have 3 phrases for the holidays: Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Season's Greetings. These banners can be found by clicking here, or going to Marketing Tools > Search Creatives and choosing "Holidays" from the drop down menu. If there is anything that you require which you're unable to find, please let us know! This year we will have at least one member of the RA team in the office during each day of the holidays. Helene will be in the office on Friday 24th December after which she will be on leave until January 16th. Renee will be in the office on 29th, 30th and 31st December. FYI - The public holidays here in Australia are the 27th and 28th of December and the 3rd of January. We won’t be in the office during the public holidays, but you can email one of us on our personal emails (for anything urgent - available on the Blackberry), or to support@RewardsAffiliates.com, and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Happy Holidays to all!
