Paid Search (PPC) Policy
All trademark terms and display urls are protected. Do not bid. This means that affiliates may not bid on the term ‘HalloweenExpress.com’ or derivates thereof without written permission. Trademark terms include:

- Affiliates may not represent themselves as being Halloween Express.
- We do not allow the use of a domain name that is so similar it is difficult to determine which is the "real" HalloweenExpress.com
- Cookie stuffing, providing false or misleading links, use of pop-ups and blind redirects are all prohibited.
Affiliates are encouraged to promote our websites through various acceptable means such as with banners, product images, product catalogs, text links, recommendations, reviews or offers through affiliate newsletters to subscribers / clients.

The following items are not commissionable under our affiliate program: gift cards, gift wrapping, wholesale/bulk orders and items that are not sold through our shopping cart.
Coupons and Promotional Codes
