It used to be that CPA Networks were mostly made up of email capture scams where visitors would enter their email address thinking they’d get a free iPad or something else of high value, and after completing free offer after offer after offer, they didn’t getting anything free except a boatload of spammy emails. And affiliates promoted those to earn $1 per email. I hated those offers. Okay, hate is a strong word… I very much disliked those offers because they were misleading and made my sites look bad. I combed through every network trying to find legitimate offers for my visitors.
A couple have stood the test of time, and now with bloggers wanting to monetize their site, new “blogger networks” are popping up. These are the (I will still call them CPA) networks that I personally use and recommend. I am not ranking them by my favorite, but by the order in which I joined each of them.
This was one of the first CPA networks I joined, and they are still going strong; they even recently upgraded their platform, which was a pain to update links and such, but it appears it has been worth the hassle.

5. Value Savings Network
This is the newest network I just joined (2014). There are not of lot of offers yet, but the ones they have are good ones! For instance, they are paying out 75¢ per every $1 off diaper rash coupon printed!
