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. We have 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. And while we try to be objective mattress reviewing machines, we are people just like you. In any event, we want to make you aware of this potential “conflict of interest” so you have all the information when you read and consider our reviews. The amount of the referral fee may certainly impact our ability to be completely unbiased.
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 go directly to the seller’s own website (and you clear your cache before doing so), you can see what the price would be with and without using the link or code on our website.

**If you don’t see a company listed above, we may have a relationship with the company through the Amazon Associates Program. However, if the product isn’t available on Amazon and/or no links on our website take you to the applicable Amazon product page, we likely do not have any affiliate relationship with the company.**
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. In most cases, this does not significantly impact how we rate or review a product. To learn more about this, please read (the info located here) about how we may research and/or test products.
