Baby Cheapskate: Affiliate Programs, Giveaways, Reviews, and Ads

Baby Cheapskate is affiliated with several online retailers. What does that mean?
Affiliate programs are a popular means of blog monetization. When a reader clicks to a retailer I’m affiliated with via a link on my site and buys a product or products there, I get a percentage of the sale, usually 4-8%. You don’t pay a penny extra. We both benefit. If you don’t want to support this blog, its author, and her family (*sniff!*), you can simply navigate to the deal without clicking on my link. You can read more about affiliate programs here.

Whom am I affiliated with?
If you see an ad on my site, You should assume that I’m affiliated with that company. If I link to a product in a post, I may also be affiliated with the retailer offering the product.

**Baby Cheapskate is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com, endless.com, or MYHABIT.com.**

Here are a few of my other affiliations. I joined these retailers’ programs because I was consistently seeing good values at their stores/sites: Target, Kmart, Sears, LeapFrog, Scholastic, BabyCatalog, Drugstore.com, Shutterfly, Snapfish, Kodak Gallery, REI, ShoeBuy, Payless, The Children’s Place, Old Navy, Gap, and Kohls.

Additionally, some links on BabyCheapskate.com are monetized through Skimlinks. Like other affiliate links, Skimlinks don’t affect the price you pay for purchases and I don’t receive any information regarding you, your identity, or any information regarding your purchase.

How does that affect the deals I post?
I’m serious about saving you money. It’s my passion. You can be assured (pinkie swear!) that any deals I post are true bargains–the lowest price around on that item–regardless of whether I have an affiliate relationship with the retailer. If it’s not a bargain, it doesn’t get posted (unless I make a mistake, which happens occasionally and is usually followed by enough of a hue and cry from readers so that I pull the post shortly thereafter). If readers tell me I’ve missed something, or that a deal I’ve posted isn’t the great deal I thought it was, I alter it or remove it from the site. Period. You should also know that I post many deals each week from retailers with whom I have absolutely no relationship.

I don’t get paid to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely mine and those of contributing readers. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

Why should you take my word for it?
Because I’m pretty darn good at finding deals. I’m also an extremely ethical person. But since (most of) you don’t know me, it won’t hurt my feelings a bit if you check up on me:

I want you to check on the prices you see here to see if you can find a better deal–and if you can, let me know so that I can alter the post. You can use the same tools I do (search engines, price comparison sites, etc.) to check the prices I post to see if they represent a good deal for your family. Your vigilance makes this blog a better money-saving resource for parents.

Do I write reviews of products in exchange for payment or freebies? I don’t accept monetary compensation for reviews. Period. I may accept a sample product so that I can try it out and let you know what I think. If this is the case, I’ll say so within the review post. You can expect me to to publish my honest opinion of the product, whether positive or negative.

Do I accept payment or freebies for hosting blog giveaways? I accept payment for hosting some of the giveaways you see here on BC, but I don’t accept freebies.

Disclaimer

I do my best to present information on this blog that is free of errors and correct at the time of posting. I’m human, I have a little kid, and I’m bound to make mistakes from time to time. You should know that if you plan to read this blog.

Sometimes brick-and-mortar deals I talk about apply only to certain geographical regions. What might be on sale in the Atlanta area might not be the same price in your area. Deals may also expire without warning. Sucks, but it happens.

Do your own research. Verify what you see here before buying. Find out what works best for you and your family. And if you see an error? Feel free to let me know about it.

See our User Agreement for more legal-sounding verbage on this topic.
