This doesn't sound like something you should do, but read the TOS, esp section 8 - what do you think?

L

you can always post links of any affiliate at this site http://www.where2buycheap.com

.  I'm with Kiteman as long as you 1) post an Instructable that has some merit 2) make it clear that it is an affiliate link that you will make money from; 3) provide an alternative supplier.

If you are up-front about it ("If you buy the item from this link, you will earn me X cents"), and if the item is also available from "normal" suppliers, I don't think there would be any problem.

Oh, and as long as you haven't put the project together just to get people to click the link as well.
