Affiliate Information and Disclosure

In addition to generous donations by altdotlife members, altdotlife gets its operating expenses met from various affiliate marketing programs. We don’t do paid reviews, and don’t reprint paid reviews from our blog network contributors.

Our biggest affiliate income, by far, is from the Amazon program. The blog and forum software automatically add our affiliate code to each amazon link. Manually added affiliate links will have a tool tip “Affiliate link” to let you know we’ll get a small kickback from the purchase, but assume that all Amazon links are affiliate links. You can also access Amazon affiliate links at the top right hand of the screen anywhere on altdotlife, under the Shopping menu item. (We <3 Amazon! They keep our servers in the black!)

Here are location-specific links to the Amazon website, with our affiliate ID embedded:

Here’s a list of some of our other affiliate marketers. Clicking on these links before making a purchase will earn an affiliate fee for altdotlife. The fee depends on the individual advertiser, but is usually from 4%-15% of the purchase price. I try to post any coupon codes or sales notices I get from these programs to the relevant “Bargains” thread on the forum, but it can be hard to keep up with them all.

As always, thank you for supporting the community!
