In much of our product-focused content, you’ll find buttons and text links that redirect to Amazon and other reputable online retailers. If you click on one of these affiliate links, and end up buying something from the retailer, our parent company, Bourquin Group LLC, will earn a small commission on your purchase. This revenue helps keep us in business, and ensures that our writers can continue to publish news, reviews, how-tos, and analysis to the highest editorial standards.
The inclusion of affiliate links does not influence the editorial direction of our product coverage. We are committed to evaluating products with utmost integrity, and the inclusion of an affiliate link should not be interpreted as a product endorsement.
Indeed, we make every attempt to apply affiliate links across the board to all product reviews—regardless of whether a product receives a poor, average, or exceptional score. So, if you don’t find a link in a product review, it’s likely we couldn’t find an online retailer selling the product at the time of publication or we just didn’t add a link.
Currently, Amazon is our main affiliate partner. Between Amazon’s strong pricing, inventory, and Prime membership benefits, it’s often our first choice for online shopping. That said, we also apply affiliate links for Apple, Best Buy, Newegg and other reputable online retailers. The choice of one affiliate source over another should not be interpreted as an editorial endorsement, and we can’t guarantee that the link we’ve chosen represents the product’s best current price.
As of December 5th 2019, we will no longer use affiliate text links or unmarked photo links for paid ads. All ads will say the name of the vendor if they are an affiliate. Sponsored Advertising shall remain the same photo or graphic with a link to the sponsor.
All paid linking shall be in ad format with an image and clear naming of the company paying the affiliate fee.
