You're not missing much. They had restricted the categories to make it useless. Also, with COVID, I expect Amazon's volume has gone up 1000% and they don't need the loyalty bit to drive sales.

Amazon has changed their affiliate program such that it just isn't worth the overhead of participating.

It's really hitting youth sports since fundraisers capturing all the families Amazon spend could bring in hundreds of dollars a month.

Ebates.ca as well. First they culled most of the categories, then they set all to zero.

I suspect Amazon.ca either realised that they don't need to pay this as most orders will come in anyway, or that they are currently too busy and are actually struggling to fill all orders. So they don't want to incentivize additional orders.
