I don't know - I have one account. In my experience, though, if I log in through affiliates central, it treats me as an affiliate. If I log in through the front page, it treats me as a customer, even though it's the same account.

It would be hard to be shady with amazon, unless you really knew what you were doing.
That is very true. Early on they had Associates who would, in effect, buy items for themselves or for resale at a discount. They are very hip to that now.
They look at methods of payment, addresses shipped to and perhaps more in order to prevent that. Amazon will certainly grab back the commissions and perhaps kick a person out if the violations are persistent.
It seems to be okay to set up an informal reciprocal agreement with a fellow Associate where s/he buys from your site and vice versa. Or find a charity you admire with an Amazon link....
