Just so you know — Thanks to some very savvy sponsors, advertisers and affiliate partners, I sometimes benefit from products mentioned or links followed. Optimistic I know, but go ahead and assume anything mentioned on any of my websites could qualify for compensation.
This is my blanket disclosure statement. I would tell you anyway, but I’m required by the Federal Trade Commission to disclose possible financial gain. Now, if the FTC has their way, bloggers like me will have to clutter up posts and pages with qualifying statements of possible financial connection before every referral link and product mention. I think you’d agree, that would make blogs like this barely readable.
To be clear, though, I want you to know that these are the ways I support this website. As founder, writer and publisher of SavvyCities.com, I sometimes get paid affiliate commissions, receive advertising fees, accept sponsorship offers, and get free stuff to review from other companies (not “mad scrilla” exactly, but you get the point).
If you enjoy my reviews and find my tips helpful, following my links to buy something is an easy way to say thanks, without costing you a cent. I appreciate your trust and would never recommend something I didn’t believe in. I cover topics in my own way, whether I stand to benefit financially or not. My opinions are never for sale.
Got it? Thought so. Hopefully the FTC will, too.
