Affiliate Links and Advertising

Wichita on the Cheap finds real discounts from reputable companies and, when possible, posts affiliate links to the deals. If you use my links, you get great discounts while supporting this site.

Wichita on the Cheap is mostly a one-woman operation and an idealistic pursuit dedicated to the idea that we can live well while still living within our means. In order to fund my little operation and be compensated for my time, I do accept advertising and use affiliate links.

Advertising you understand. Affiliate links may need some explaining.

Sometimes retailers will pay me a small commission when someone makes a purchase, signs up for something, or prints a coupon via the link I provide in a post. These are called affiliate links, and if you’ve spent any amount of time on the Internet you’ve seen them – they’re very common. I always appreciate when you use my links to click through to a deal. The commission I receive is usually minuscule, but it’s something, and I appreciate it.

I should also point out that I won’t make an agreement with any advertiser that requires me to post anything. If it doesn’t seem like a good deal, it’s not going on my blog.

Now that you understand affiliate links and advertising, you can support your favorite bloggers. If you have a favorite blog that clearly discloses affiliate links, consider using them. Another great way to help a blogger is by telling your friends about the blog. And when you take advantage of a deal you’ve seen on a blog or a website, please tell the merchant where you heard about it. It does make a difference. Thank you!
