Sometimes when we recommend a product, we’ll link to the company’s website using what’s known as an affiliate or referral link. Basically, if you end up buying a product that you found via our link, we get a commission from the vendor as a small “thank you.”
Sometimes that commission is just a few dollars; sometimes it’s a little more. Sometimes it’s a one-time commission; sometimes it’s a rolling commission — so if you sign up for a monthly subscription service we might get a slice of that monthly fee.
But here’s the important thing — that referral doesn’t cost you a penny. The entire commission comes out of the vendor’s pocket not yours.
And it goes without saying that we’ll never recommend a product simply because it pays us a commission because that would be sleazy, right!
So we’ll only recommend products that we’ve personally used or that come highly recommended by trusted peers. We do easily tell when we’re using an affiliate link, we’ll put (affiliate link) after it.
Also, it’s possible that we sometimes do not mark some links in posts but what important is that we recommend trusted and tested products from reputable vendors.
