Affiliate Disclosure

What is an “affiliate commission”?

An affiliate commission means that if you click on one of the links on my website and purchase the item(s) I recommend, at no additional cost to you, I will get a small commission for referring you.  These commissions help me pay for the many individuals that I employ, server costs, design costs, content creation, and once in a while it buys me a cup of coffee to work another 18 hour day to serve my audience.

Do these affiliate commissions make you biased?

If readers choose to buy the products that my team and I recommend as a result of our research, analysis, interviews, and testing, our work is often (but not always) supported through an affiliate commission from the service provider when they make a purchase. If readers return their purchases because they’re dissatisfied or the recommendation is bad, I’ll make nothing. There’s no incentive for myself or my team to pick inferior products or respond to pressure from service providers—in fact, it’s quite the opposite. I think that’s a pretty fair system that keeps my team and I committed to serving my readers first.

The most important thing to me is the trust I have from you, my audience. If I recommend something because I’m biased or lazy, and it’s a bad recommendation, readers like you wouldn’t support my work.
