10 Best Halloween Affiliate Programs (Spook-tacular Earnings)

I’ve always LOVED autumn’s creepy celebrations – now more than ever!

Because there are many frightfully epic Halloween affiliate programs in 2023 – banking you some seriously scare-tastic commissions in a small window.

Trust me, this comes from personal experience.

When I started this affiliate marketing “stuff” many full moons ago, I made a killing…

I created numerous Squidoo lenses (mini niche sites) focused on promoting Star Wars, plus size and group Halloween costumes…

Much to my amazement, they ranked on Google, generated floods of traffic, and commissions poured in daily every October.

Well, up until Google digitally sent us ‘Squidoo Lens Masters’ to an early grave.

But SOME of us returned from the dead *insert Thriller lyrics here* 😉

I digress.

Did you know the average US citizen spends roughly $100 on cosplay, decorations, candy and greeting cards on the screamish event?

In fact, it’s predicted Americans will spend $12.2 billion in total, THIS upcoming Halloween!

“Holy All Hallows’ Eve, Batman!”

Without further a-boo, let’s get you a slice of that eerie pie…

#1: Spirit Halloween

Did you know Spirit Halloween was founded in 1983 and operates over 1,400 stores across North America and Canada?


Referring to itself as “the world’s #1 Halloween costume store” – Spirit Halloween supplies a big selection of goodies.

From cosplay to decorations to accessories to makeup to animatronics, movies, and games – you name it, the store has it stocked.

What’s also spookily cool about the giant is that it’s got an Amazon store.

Which is good news if you’re already affiliated with/planning to join Amazon Associates to keep your money-making options open.

Did you also know the retailer has a soft spot for charity?

In 2006, it launched the ‘Spirit of Children’ – over $29 million has been raised for children’s hospitals so far!

So, there’s another VERY good reason to jump on board Spirit Halloween and get promoting like hell.

#2: Facepaint.com

face paint website

Facepaint.com is an epic all-year-round online store that stocks 3,500 products specifically for…

YUP, you guessed it…

Face painting.

There are face and body paints in all sorts of colours, makeup, glitter and gems, tattoos, stencils, brushes and sponges.

In addition, folks can buy balloons and plenty of special FX items and accessories in general.

For Halloween, there’s a selection of kid and adult paint kits, palettes, prosthetics, blood, wound transfers, fangs/tooth FX, latex & 3D makeup, and airbrushing items.

What I also love about Facepaint.com is that it really pushes the boat out at Halloween.

Because there are even free webinars covering spooky designs and masks, and tutorials on glam spider eye, pumpkin scarecrow monster, and kids’ scary animal makeup designs.

As an affiliate, you’ll enjoy a no chargeback policy, deep linking opportunities, and stacks of text links, to name some benefits.

Overall, I think Facepaint.com would be a fab additional income stream to run alongside ANY fancy-dress affiliate program on your niche blog.

#3: The Halloween Spot

Admittedly, The Halloween Spot costume categories are fairly small (in my opinion) in comparison to some of the more well-known online stores.

But on the flip side, when combined – folks have a big choice of kids, adults, and even pet costumes to sink their claws into.

Not only that, but besides the more “traditional” Halloweeny outfits – there are plenty of other characters and themes to pick from.

Plus, there’s a selection of scary and non-scary accessories and props to complement some costume choices.

Which makes The Halloween Spot a good store and affiliate program to promote all year round.

Speaking of which, the average order amount is $50, and affiliates receive the necessary marketing materials, as well as support to do the job.

#4: Horror Hub Marketplace (Formerly Costumes4Less?)

horror hub marketplace affiliate program

Funnily enough, it seems Costumes4Less (costumes4less.com) has transitioned into the Horror Hub Marketplace.

But don’t pick my brain for the who, what, where, when, why and how, because I’m as clueless as you LOL.

The Horror Hub Marketplace looks like one heck of a monstrous one-stop-shop from where I’m sitting.

Because in addition to all the usual Halloween costume ideas in child and adult sizes…

The marketplace stocks popular branded themed and movie costumes – there are 100s, if not 1,000s of garments to pick from!

Furthermore, there are 1,000s of cosplay accessories, props, masks, wigs, makeup items, vintage Halloween decorations, books, magnets, movies, collectibles, hot sauces…

The list almost seems endless!

So, whatever your Halloween niche, there’s sure to be something to promote to your target audience.

But as for the affiliate commission payout, cookie, marketing material, and support info…

I guess you’ll find out during (via phone or Skype call) your affiliate application process or once approved.

  • Signup URL: Horror Hub Marketplace Affiliate Program
  • Network: Independent
  • Commission rate: Undisclosed
  • Cookie duration: Undisclosed.

#5: Party City

Whatever themed occasion springs to mind…

Whether it’s the popular Fall and Winter holidays or the usual celebrations – Party City comes into play, baby!

Because besides Halloween cosplay, accessories and decorations, the store sells a big range of party goodies.

For example, tableware, invitations, stationary, balloons, candy, cake and decorating items…

Basically, everything under the sun for throwing fun-filled parties for friends and family.

What’s also great about the company is that it stocks 100s of items under its ‘Sale & Clearance’ category to save a few buckaroonies.

From an affiliate program standpoint, it’s difficult to determine your earnings, since commissions are unspecified.

Nevertheless, it’s a fab store to fulfil the frightful needs of your partygoing/throwing audience – banking you some profits.

#6: Halloween Express

Don’t be fooled by the name “Halloween Express“.

Because in addition to the typical fright night indoor/outdoor decor, clown, zombie, witch, skeleton, werewolf and ghostly costumes, etc…

Halloween Express is a great all-year round store to introduce your niche blog visitors to.

Since, there all sorts of cosplay themes and props spanning various categories for the whole family to enjoy.

There’s even a ‘Collectibles’ section comprising 100s of horror movie props and accessories to really put the willies up folks on Halloween.

Frustratingly, there’s absolutely no info on the commission and cookie life side of things as an affiliate.

But still, there’s plenty of quality stuff that’s certainly worth promoting to your tribe for a buck.

#7: Costumes.com (Formerly BuyCostumes?)

costumes dot com home page

Costumes.com (which I believe was once BuyCostumes.com) is my baby.

Because it marked the beginning of my own affiliate marketing journey – you know the story.

When it comes to Halloween, Costumes.com has a lot to offer men, women, kids and also pets.

Not only can folks sink their fangs into the traditional horror and classic Halloween costumes…

But also cosplay that’s trending this season, like superhero/villain, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Miraculous Ladybug, and Ghostbusters themes.

Additionally, buyers can accessorize their costumes and there’s a great selection of Halloween decor too.

From an affiliate perspective, there’s no info on commission rates or marketing creatives…

But there’s a decent cookie window and the potential to earn some scary-sized commissions (like I did!) on the whole.

#8: Lego Affiliate Program

“Say what? Have you lost your marbles, Neil?” LOL.

There’s nothing wrong with thinking outside the box, right?

#10: Temu Affiliate Program

temu halloween products

There’s a heck of a lot of buzz (not to mention controversy) around Temu and especially the Temu affiliate program right now.

But with such an extensive product range and at VERY affordable prices for most Halloween lovers, you’d be zombie-crazy not to give Temu a whirl and promote stuff like:

The awesome thing about the scary holiday niche is that affiliate programs can be so flexible.

Not only are they fab all-year rounders to promote – especially during other major holidays…

But you can really “niche down” when it comes to your website…

For example, you could build a blog focused on plus size Halloween costumes, group Halloween costumes, kids Star Wars Halloween costumes, dog Halloween cosplay…

Or how about candy for trick or treaters, kids scary face painting ideas or in/outdoor party decor?

There are SOOO many directions for making an absolute killing online during the frightful season and beyond.

You only need to find A good niche idea to succeed BIG time like I did.
