Our Rules in Affiliate Marketing

Summary on the Disclaimer Rules we Play By

I am an affiliate marketer.  Please assume that if you purchase products by clicking a link in any of my posts that I will receive a commission.  The commissions do NOT increase your cost at all.  They do help to support this blog.  And I appreciate your support!

Please note as well that all recommendations are based on my opinion.

The Full Disclosure:

In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance. The purpose is to make sure that readers or viewers of information published on the internet know if the author is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. In essence, with a blog like this one, so all readers can know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.

In compliance with the FTC guidelines and for full transparency, please assume that all of the links on the pages and posts on AnniesTips.com are affiliate links.  That means if you click them and make a purchase, I will make a small amount of money from your purchase.  That is the way I support this blog, instead of having advertisers

What are affiliate links?

An affilate link is a colored phrase or words or a picture that takes you to another website when you click on it. When you make a purchase, you buy directly from the seller (not from anniestips.com). Amazon and/or other companies pay AnniesTips.com a small commission for promoting their website or products.

The prices are exactly the same for you whether or not you go through an affiliate link. You will not pay more  but you will help support this blog by using the links you find here.  And I appreciate your support. 

I use two main types of affiliate programs:

1. Amazon affiliate links.

AnniesTips.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program.  Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliation links supports this blog at no additional cost to you.

If a reader links to an Amazon product through this blog, and places an item in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, this blog gets a small percentage of the sale.  If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else,  I will also get commission on that sale.

Anytime you see a link that looks like astore.com/… or amazon.com… please assume that it is an Amazon affiliate link.

2. Product affiliate links.

These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then I get a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.

What about sponsored content?

I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, unbiased information. However, if I ever write a post that is a paid sponsorship, I promise to disclose this clearly in the post.
