This was on Cheap E-reads facebook page today.  They will no longer list deals from the B&N website as B&N will no longer pay affiliates for ebooks sales:

"We are at a loss. That is a first for us. We can no longer work as BN affiliates because we find their terms untenable. We work extremely hard and bring quality content as well as awesome deals for Nook fans on a scale we've never seen elsewhere. We deserve remuneration from BN. However, they will no longer pay commission on e-books. So, it looks as though we'll not continue listing their books. We could become affiliates of Smashwords and utilize our Kobo affiliation and bring you EPUB books that way. We are very upset and basically devastated by this. As Miss Piggy, I have given you my all and my piggies have as well. This isn't just a page to us, it is a community of friends. So many of you have supported and helped build our pages and we are so grateful to you. Please know that we would love to continue bringing Nook deals but we cannot under these circumstances."

I would suspect Inkmesh and any others that post listings with an affiliate link will follow suit.

Just saw on the Cheap Ereads page that B&N has heard complaints and has changed their new policy.  So, we'll be getting updates on Cheap Ereads again.  Yeah!

I read this as Not getting ebooks from them do to some kind of complaints.
