The Simple Money Blog is funded by advertisements and affiliate relationships. However, it is of utmost importance to us to only recommend or endorse something if we feel that it adds value to our readers.
From time-to-time, we discus products or services that offer a referral program. As such, we may receive compensation based on a referral to their site, program, or service. However, we would not recommend a product or service unless we believed in the merits and value it can add to our readers – regardless of compensation. The purpose of making a recommendation on a product or service is to inform you, our readers, and not to generate compensation. In fact, many references throughout our blog are to which there are no affiliations.
The purpose of our blog is to educate and inform, and our references throughout are to provide information to our readers on products and services we find valuable whether it’s a free service (like Mint.com) or a paid service (like Netflix): neither of which are in any way affiliated with The Simple Money Blog. Earning the trust of our readers is more important to us than generating a commission from the sale of product or service.
An example of our affiliate relationship is our relationship with Amazon.
