That sounds more like a network/multi-level marketing (MLM) program than an affiliate marketing program. I would be very cautious.

There are tons of affiliate networks out there that you can join for FREE. Neverblue (the network I am an AM for) and Commission Junction are just a couple of my favorite networks.

My main tip... do extensive research before buying any product -- especially a product you can get for FREE somewhere else.

What does everyone else think?

Much thanks to Joao and Aletta. A true sign of multi-level marketing is that the product you are selling does not pay your commission; the people you get to sign up is the basis of your commission. In the end, you are being paid to sell people not products or information. My advice, from a person who has done it all, is to research and learn about true affiliate marketing until you feel comfortable enough to know what you are signing up for.
