The following is a list of guidelines that we abide by on all recommendations found on https://www.abetterlemonadestand.com (A Better Lemonade Stand).
Most, if not all, of the products and/or services that we recommend on A Better Lemonade Stand are products or services that we either currently use or have used in the past. We have invested our own time and money into personally purchasing and using or researching and learning almost every product or service we recommend or mention. Some of these products are items we do in fact use every day in our businesses.
If you click on a link to visit a product website that we have recommended or mentioned we very well may may receive a commission upon you making a purchase from the vendors website. Please assume that all links that we have on our site are more than likely affiliate links. If a product we recommend has an affiliate link, we will usually utilize it. We operate a for profit business and are smart marketers and therefore if we recommend something and you buy it through our link, there is no reason someone should not receive a commission for it if a commission is available. By that same token, we will not endorse or recommend or review a product or service that we do not believe in strictly for affiliate commissions.
We do not receive compensation of any kind from manufacturers, advertisers or affiliates in exchange for favorable recommendations or reviews or links to their site. All recommendations or reviews are factual statements of our experiences with said product or service.

We feel it is important that you understand the relationship between a product manufacturer/vendor and an affiliate. As a product user and recommender we may receive an affiliate commission if you make a purchase via links from our website to a manufacturer’s website. However if you go directly to the manufacturer’s website without using our link, we will not earn a commission. We hope that if you found our site and insight helpful in making your purchase decision you will utilize our links.
