We use Amazon for an affiliate throughout the site. Sometimes the affiliate is marked and sometimes it is not. All large promotional items are marked. Individual small non-promotional items are rarely marked as I earn literally pennies on the transaction. All links are direct to Amazon and are as specified. They are not “hidden” links, meaning that they clearly show “amazon.com” in their link to show you that you are being redirected. I get a small percentage of your sale if you make a purchase withing a certain time window from certain items. Read more about our affiliate statement here.
