How We Make Money
We try our best to educate you on what matters in personal finance. That’s our job. Check out what we’ve recently published, we’re proud of it.
We believe transparency is key to earning and maintaining your trust, so we want you to understand how we make money, without a ton of legal jargon.
When you click on a link to a product or service and make a purchase, sometimes the company you purchased from will pay us a commission. It does not change the price you pay.
Our partners are best-in-class and we’re proud of them. Our biggest partners are:
- M1 Finance
- National Debt Relief
- Personal Capital
- WP Engine
We are also a member of the Amazon Associates program and we earn money from qualifying purchases you make that we refer. We mostly link to Amazon for books and they’re at least an amazing bookstore so it works out quite well.
We also have a relationship with Target because what self-respecting education website doesn’t sell a sock here or there, am I right?
Do your affiliate commissions make you biased?
We don’t think so.
Literally every financial company has an affiliate program these days. Seriously. Just search a company with the phrase “affiliate program” after it. Since they all have it, we get to pick the best ones.
Some of the companies we talk about don’t have an affiliate program and that’s ok. We built our business on making relationships based on what we like, not the other way around. Life’s easier that way.
Even if you don’t sign up through our link, that’s ok, we love you anyway.
No wait, I really want to know exactly how your online business works.
Threw together this insanely detailed guide on exactly how we make money online with affiliate income. In our opinion, it’s the bee’s knees.
