This Disclosure is in place, because I believe in full transparency. It is important, so you know you can trust (or ignore in some cases) what the writer is saying.

What I Do

This is a deals website, so I will usually go over items and explain the deal I received on them. The whole purpose is to get the best deal on quality items, so discussion is important. Please let me know what you think of any review or deal I cover (whether I bought the product or not). Feel free to ask me any questions if there is something I did not cover in this Disclosure.

Gratis Disclosure

I will always give full disclosure if I received anything gratis for review purposes in the article. If it is not mentioned, that means I purchased the item(s). Neither a free product nor an affiliate or referral program will affect my promotion. Though I have never accepted a sponsorship (through the date stamp below), I would not allow that to influence my opinion either. My reviews will always reflect my opinion. This will result in a negative review from products sent for consideration if I do not like the product. Those asking for a review that does not allow me to speak freely or support my vision will get ignored or rejected.

If I am promoting a product or retailer on my site, it is because I believe in or have good experiences with the product or retailer. Whenever a product or company loses my respect, I will suspend all affiliation, so do not reach out asking me to review anything unless you understand this. Use the contact form or email me at if you are interested in affiliation or asking me review something for you. I will respond for products that interest me. Do not use the form to sell me something, because I will not respond. 

Link Disclosure

Links are provided for the convenience of the reader. These links are provided every time the information the reader needs is not available on my site. Though I might benefit from some of these links and appreciate it when you use them, many of these links are solely for the benefit of the reader.

Direct Links

This site uses direct links (to directly bring you to a product or page) any time no affiliation is in place. I do not receive anything for these links other than the knowledge that I got you where you need to go.

Indirect Links

Certain links may have an affiliate, referral, or Amazon Associate program in place. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. Purchasing from affiliate or referral links may give me a commission or credit, but it does not increase the price you pay for the item. At times, I use a Pay to Shop link for a retailer. That does not mean that particular link has the best cash back rate at the time as I do not change links often. A linked Pay to Shop program indicates I do not have affiliation with the retailer, and I am linking a known affiliate (to give you a better shot at finding a deal). If there are no known affiliates, I link directly to the retailer’s site.

Pay-To-Shop Links

If a Pay To Shop link opens that you do not plan on using, look over the offers before exiting. Affiliates sometimes get exclusive offers I may not see. Looking at the offers for a retailer I have no affiliation with will likely result in you seeing a deal I do not know about. I highly recommend joining multiple Pay to Shop Programs if you have not already, so you get the highest possible percentage of your purchase back. Plus, some programs carry retailers not covered by others.

I check offers often and find some not listed on Pay to Shop programs. The fine print in some Pay to Shop Programs says you must use an offer from its site to qualify for the percentage back. Smaller orders (less than around $300) tend to get automatically approved by most programs without checking codes, but large dollar orders are usually reviewed. ShopatHome reviews almost all orders and Rakuten reviews the least. If there is any chance a code you found outside a Pay to Shop program will negate your percentage back, decide whether the code or the cash back will be more valuable.

Comment Disclosure

All comments need my approval before they get posted. I do not filter critiques of myself or opinions that disagree with mine if they are not offensive. Discussion is important to me, so I encourage dissenting opinions as much as I encourage confirmations. If you posted a non-offensive comment without an outside link, it should appear within 24 hours. It may take longer than that if I am traveling or taking a break from the blog. My comment filters are strict. These filters usually place comments with links, form letters (writing that is used to spam websites, which typically include links anyway), or offensive language into my spam folder.

Comments placed in my spam folder do not get reviewed. Links that slip through my spam filter are manually removed if I choose to approve the rest of the comment. I am not sorting through links in comments to see which are appropriate and which are not, because one inappropriate click is one too many. Yes, I checked links in the beginning and happened upon things I cannot un-see.

I discovered improper links on March 8th, 2020 and can only attribute them to user comments. To protect users from clicking on inappropriate links, I now remove all outside links from comments. Prior to this, I allowed users to link their blogs. Unfortunately, allowing this opened my site up to links I would never approve.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.

  1. Hey Kim, it’s good to see u blogging again. Have u checked out Retail me nots new cash back program? I like it better, straight dollars amounts vs percentages, many times end up being the better deal and they have stores Ebates doesn’t have!!!

  2. Hello, Jamie. While I am not a fan of having too many programs at once (ebates is just one of four I carry), I will look into it. Please email your referral link ( so you can get credit if I decide to sign up. I hope you are well.
