In an attempt to be transparent about how this website makes money, as well as comply with the applicable Federal Trade Commission rules and regulations (see https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/advertising-and-marketing/online-advertising-and-marketing for more information), we have published these disclosures. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know by emailing us at [email protected]. And please read this carefully!!
Usually, each time a consumer uses a link, a “promo code,” or a “discount code” on this website to purchase a product, we get paid a referral fee or what some refer to as an “affiliate commission.” We prefer the term “referral fee” because sales people earn commissions when they make a sale, and we are not sales people. We genuinely attempt to “call it like we see it,” and if we get paid a referral fee in the process, that’s good. But if we don’t, that’s okay too. Simply because we like a product and elect to review it does not necessarily mean we receive a referral fee. There are some companies that do not have referral fee programs or they might have a program but for one reason or another we have made the decision not to participate in their program. In addition to the disclosures on the actual review product review pages, we have also included a list of brands who have referral fee programs in which we participate and earn referral fees.
You might be thinking….but does the referral fee amount vary by product or brand? Yes! It certainly does. However, we do not believe this really impacts our ability to be fair and impartial in our reviews because, although certain products/brands may pay a higher referral fee, we may earn more from products/brands with lower referral fees due to the volume of sales these products/brands generate. In any event, we want to make you aware of this potential “conflict of interest” so you have all the information when you read our reviews.
Does the customer get charged more as a result of purchasing through this website?
No! And you can go and check this out for yourself. If you look at the brand/product’s
own website, you will see that the price will be the same whether you purchase directly from the seller’s website or by using the link or code on our website.

**If you don’t see a company listed above, our relationship with the company is through the Amazon Associates Program, if applicable.**
SleepAdvisor.org is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for websites to earn referral/advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. If you purchase a product via those links through Amazon, Amazon will pay us a referral fee.
Sometimes, manufacturers send us free products to review. We always make sure to let them know that they will get an honest review. If the product doesn’t live up to our standards, we may not even write a review, much less include it on our top lists. Each review reflects our sincere opinion, and the fact that manufacturer decided to send a product for free doesn’t mean we are obliged to write a positive review. At the beginning of each review, we will state whether or not we received a free product sample so you are able to consider this when reading the review.
Your support means a lot to us!
