Affiliate Links & Reviews

RichFrugalLife will publish affiliate endorsements and advertisements from time to time, which means that if you click on a link and/or use a link to make a purchase, we may receive a small commission or some other incentive, at no extra cost to you.

We will only write about and endorse products or services of entities that we either use ourselves or believe may be useful to our audience. Any reviews we post reflect our honest opinions about a product or service. Such reviews or recommendations have not been reviewed, endorsed or approved by any of these entities.

For full disclosure, we currently participate in the affiliate programs for Amazon, Personal Capital and Bluehost. As such, you should be aware that links from this blog to the websites of these companies are affiliate links, as described above.
