How We Use Affiliate Programs

We hate annoying ads. Did you notice when you landed on The Idle Cat that you weren’t bombarded with ads? Did you see how fast our pages load?! That’s because we refuse to give in to advertisements, and opt to be reader-supported instead.

Being reader-supported means we rely on the commissions earned by referring sales to pay for the maintenance of the site. When we mention a product, we’ll use a link that tells the merchant we sent you, and if you end up buying something, we earn a little fee. It never costs you anything extra.

Websites like this aren’t cheap to maintain, and affiliate programs are a way for us to keep the site running and full of interesting content while avoiding nasty intrusive ads.

Affiliate programs never influence our views or suggestions, we make decisions on what products to recommend based on real experiences and research. If we recommended rubbish, you’d stop trusting us, and we’d be worse off!

We’re current affiliate partners of the following websites:
