How We Make Money

Our goal is to provide objective reports on the topics we cover, so you can do your research – for free.

We help you with the basics, provide how-to guides and reviews. Our writers and editors do the research and let the evidence lead them to their opinions and conclusions. We want you to feel confident you can make an informed decision when you’re ready to commit your hard-earned money to a product or service. While we don’t review every product or service on the market, we are committed to giving you all the necessary facts to make an informed choice wherever your search leads you.

To make a profit and pay for our expert researchers, writers and editors we accept advertising from affiliate partners. That means, if you decide a product you find on our site is the right choice for you, and you click the link, we may get compensated.

But not every brand we write about has an advertising relationship with us. We work with a large number of brands, but we always recommend the best brand, and we only work with brands we trust and will benefit the user. To earn your trust, we consider value first and vet all our partners to make sure you’re happy with your decision – no matter what.

To ensure objectivity, we maintain a clear and rigorous separation between our editorial team and our advertisers. We never let the advertiser’s desire to make a sale influence what we write, how we write about it or where our analysis appears on the site.
