Hello! You may have clicked on a link that brought you here to chat about affiliate links. Well, instead of being all business-like and trying to explain it in super confusing language, I will just tell it like it is. :)
Some businesses and companies will pay me to advertise their items or deals on my site. When you click on the links to print coupons, take advantage of offers or deals with companies, on my site, they may pay me a little for advertising. The pay does NOT come from you. It costs you absolutely NOTHING. The company will give me a little kick-back (and I mean…VERY LITTLE) in exchange for advertising for them.
Some examples of this are, but not limited to, Amazon deals, coupons.com, red plum, smart source coupons, Best Buy, Target and Walmart.
The cool thing about affiliate links is that the offers or coupons are usually HOT! They are awesome! So, please, feel free to take advantage of them! AND, when you shop through my site/links or print coupons from the graphics/links in my sidebar or anywhere else on my site, you help support my site. The companies pay me when you make your purchase or print the coupons. Like I said, the money doesn’t come from you and doesn’t add to your purchase, etc… It’s the companies way of thanking me for bringing your business to them. This helps me keep bringing the deals and HOT Coupons to you. The “commission” if that’s what you want to call it, helps keep me here for you!
So, THANK YOU! If you grab the deals or print the coupons from my site, THANK YOU A BUNCH!

Savin’ Green Mom is a money-saving blog written and edited by me, Mary Jo Moesch, and ONLY me.
I love to be able to share great deals and bargains with everyone and I am very passionate about helping others save money.
I put a lot of time and work into this blog and I am constantly working on making the blog better for you.
To help support SavinGreenMom.com, I do use affiliate links where applicable and do accept paid advertising in my sidebar.
I receive compensation if you print coupons from the links in my sidebar and I also receive compensation if you shop at any of the stores or shops in my side-bar as well. This compensation comes from the advertisers themselves. Advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network.
I will accept compensation to provide my opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even if I am given compensation for posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products.
The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
I also am proud to say that I am an ethical blogger.
When I see deals posted on other sites or MY favorite deal sites, I give credit where credit is due, by thanking them and linking back to their site and/or post of that specific deal.
For questions about this blog, please contact maryjo@SavinGreenMom.com
