Bookmark the affiliate links?

Hello, I'm interested in creating bookmarks to the Brickset affiliate links, allowing me to visit those sites and give credit without first visiting Brickset.  What are good URLs to bookmark which will work?  Are there dynamic, unique parameters in the URLs which require clicking through from Brickset?
I'm most interested in the Lego.com link.  Can I bookmark the linksynergy.com link or is the "mid" parameter dynamic?  Can I bookmark the final destination URL of https://www.lego.com/en-us?CMP=AFC-AffiliateUS-oSv/vWYkQIY-2014326-115554-1 which seems constant?  There are intermediate URLs between linksynergy and the final URL on Lego.com which have unique parameters, but do those matter?
Does Bricklink have an affiliate link or do they count the click through from Brickset due to referrer tags?  Amazon, Zavvi, and StockX look straightforward.  Catawiki looks like a mess but I don't use it.

    Thank you for asking. The best one to bookmark is https://brickset.com/click which handles geo-targeting and adds the required parameters to ensure attribution of sales to Brickset.

    Interesting.  Of the six affiliate links on the home page, a mouseover in Firefox shows only Catawiki uses brickset.com/click.  I'm seeing the Lego link as:
    Could I bookmark that?  The "id" parameter appears to be the affiliate code, but what's the "mid" parameter?  I'm hoping it's not dynamic.
    Thanks, I want to be sure I give you the credit and compensation.

    Yes, that one will do given you're in the USA. We use the /click link in news articles to geo-target them once clicked, as opposed to the ones in the sidebar which are geo-targeted on the server.
