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 may get a commission from the owner of the product.

Commissions amount vary based on different the product. Sometimes that commission is just a few dollars; sometimes it’s a little more. However, 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. So we’ll only recommend products that we’ve personally used or that come highly recommended by trusted peers.
