We have become fans of Amazon over the years. Honestly, it is convenient, and when price shopping, it often cannot be beat. Thus, when we discovered that Amazon had an affiliate program, where we provide advertising for them on our website and in return we receive a percentage of the purchases that are made when clicking through our site, it was a bit of a “no brainer” for us. In our two plus years of research and reading other peoples travel websites, one thing we notice is many have a “donate” or “buy us a beer” button where one is able to give money directly to travelers. This is NOT for us! From the beginning we have said that we will travel as long as we are able to afford it by our own means and financial charity from others is not how we want to travel. That is why the affiliate program through Amazon feels to be a good fit for us. We place advertising links on our website and when you, your family and friends click to Amazon through our website, we receive a percentage of the amount of your purchases. The prices you pay are the same and notice no difference in your purchasing experience after clicking through our website.
On our main page you will find a link to Amazon by scrolling down, on the left hand side of the page. You may either click on the Amazon logo or enter what you are looking for in the search bar.
We also have set up an Amazon store, which allows us to showcase gear we use and consider worthwhile, within the page “gear we use”. We wanted a place within our website that we could highlight some of the gear we use that others may find useful. By utilizing the affiliate program with this page, it can be a one stop shop for you, and we get paid, by Amazon, a percentage as an advertising fee.
To summarize, by clicking through our website to access Amazon we will receive a percentage of what you spent as an advertising kickback from Amazon. This does not affect the price you pay for the product and your purchases are directly through Amazon. Thus, they also remain as safe and secure of a purchase process as they normally are.
