We are a participant in the Amazon Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon and affiliated sites.

When you see a link that goes to an Amazon product on our site, it’s important to know that it’s an affiliate link. This means that we might earn a small commission if you decide to purchase that product using the link. But remember, your price remains the same.

To be clear and transparent with you, our audience, you’ll notice that near any affiliate link or product review, we use phrases such as “(paid link)”, “#ad”, or “#CommissionsEarned”. These are placed in easily noticeable locations, so you don’t have to search for them.

In accordance with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulations and the Amazon Associates Program’s requirements, the following statement must be clearly and prominently displayed on our site: “As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.”

For social media posts that include Amazon affiliate links, this disclosure will be associated with our account, complying with the guidelines of the respective social media platform.

If our product recommendations are made via an Alexa skill, we ensure to provide this disclosure in the same medium (voice or text), making it as close as possible in time when prompting customers to engage with an Alexa Shopping Action tagged with our Associate ID.
