Do you find this blog useful and want to help support it and keep it alive and kicking? This new post is one of the best ways to do so: simply begin your online shopping adventures with this post, using the various affiliate links below. The various retailers and services below pay a small advertising fee on purchases/transactions and they can go a long way towards funding this poor blog.
Why Should You Do This?
We have been running this website with very minimal advertising. These are forms of advertising you see on most other websites out there, but we don’t use them here:
+ NO ad boxes everywhere you look (we have only one ad box in the Sidebar)
+ NO ads that make you wait 15 seconds before you can see the actual page
+ NO double underline ads in the blog text
+ NO clickbait viral nonsensical “around the web” boxes below individual posts
+ NO ads that expand and takeover the page
+ NO sponsors (specific advertisers that pay a flat amount to be featured)
+ NO advertorials (aka paid blog posts or articles)
+ NO auto-play video boxes
+ NO pop-up or pop-under ads (yes, they still exist)
+ NO annoying “give us your email” boxes within seconds of visiting the page
+ NO 3rd-party commenting systems that are basically data harvesters for the ad networks
+ NO one-line RSS feed (we offer free full-text RSS feeds)
BIG INTERNET MARKETPLACES
WELL-KNOWN CAMERA AND ELECTRONICS DEALERS
MORE RETAILERS (alphabetical order)
+ All 4 Cellular (aka A4C)
+ Buy.com = Rakuten
+ Dell Home
+ Dell Refurbished
+ Game Stop
+ Microsoft Store
+ Office Depot / Office Max
+ YES Asia
BOOKS and LEARNING
CELL PHONE / WIRELESS COMPANIES
MEDIA and ENTERTAINMENT
+ Name Cheap (domain registrar for less)
WHY ARE SOME RETAILERS MISSING?
Unfortunately not all retailers have affiliate programs. Some retailers may have affiliate programs but only invite or accept a small subset of websites (eg famous websites or ones with high traffic). Some retailers have affiliate programs that are restricted by State because of the various Internet sales tax laws. Some retailers have affiliate programs but their advertising fees are very close to zero for cameras/electronics.
MORE WILL BE ADDED
More retailers will be added over time. If you have any suggestions or recommendations, please leave feedback (see section below)…
