How We Make Money
The work that we do at Reviews.com is extremely time consuming and expensive. In almost every category, hundreds of hours are spent on a given review. We are a team of talented journalists, researchers, editors, strategists and industry experts. We take a lot of pride in what we do, and especially in the fact that our reviews are trustworthy and non-biased.
All of that work is supported by the fact that we can make money through advertising and affiliate partnerships. This helps ensure that we don’t need to charge our readers to consume our content.
The team that works on the reviews that you read on this site is completely independent from our business operations. They do not make recommendations with affiliate relationships in mind. In fact, the editorial team doesn’t even have insights into who our partners are or what the nature of our relationship is. Their job is to figure out which products and services are the best and to surface the truth to our readers.
If a reader chooses to to buy a product or sign up for a service through Reviews.com, by clicking on one of our affiliate links – we will sometimes (not always), receive a commission. Affiliate programs are very common, so in many cases whatever product or service ends up being recommended, will most likely have an affiliate program. If they don’t, we simply won’t make money when the reader signs up for that product or service. We recognize that by taking this approach, we are leaving money on the table in the short-run. It is our very strong belief, that in the long run, it will pay off in a big way. Building trust and credibility with our readers is much more valuable and sustainable.
You can support our work by clicking on the links in our review pages. Otherwise, you can always go straight to the product or service we are recommending and bypass our affiliate links entirely.
