Use lots of exclamation points!!!!

Unless these folks signed up on an affiliate's website, and that 
affiliate got authorization from the user to share their addresses, 
you are spamming them, IMO.

If you are not genuinely spamming them, the email ought to come from 
the affiliate website's contact address and should also indicate the 
name of the affiliat's website in the subject.
