RealSleep.com aims to provide the most up-to-date, comprehensive and useful information for our readers. Our goal is to create a single-source online resource for all things sleep for individuals and families of all ages. RealSleep.com is all about transparent honesty in our product reviews, “best of” listicles, user guides, educational resources and sleep aids
It is not inexpensive to launch, run, maintain and update a website like RealSleep. To fund the free content you will find here, we have entered into a number of mutually productive affiliate agreements with companies that manufacture and distribute products, services, accessories and aids within the sleep industry. We have also voluntarily opted in to participate in affiliate relationships with online retail companies such as Amazon.
By choosing to participate in these affiliate relationships, we are able to continue to provide all of the great content you find here on RealSleep.com absolutely free of charge. Every time a reader clicks a link that leads to one of our affiliate partners, it helps us continue to provide even more high-value, unbiased and honest reviews and resources to our readers.
We also use proceeds from these affiliate relationships to create new guides, product rankings, conduct our own in-house sleep research, expand our online reach, conduct surveys and polls to ensure we are meeting our readers’ sleep knowledge needs and so much more.
For the sake of a truly transparent site-to-reader relationship, we want to make it clear what types of affiliate relationships are represented here on Real Sleep:
Amazon Services LLC Associates affiliate program.
RealSleep.com has elected to be a part of the Amazon Services LLC Associates program. By participating in this program, we will receive a small commission each time you, the reader, clicks through to Amazon using a link found on RealSleep.com and chooses to make a purchase there.
Each commission, while small on its own, can add up to provide additional revenue to generate new content here on the site. Rest assured there will never be a requirement to make a purchase on Amazon or any of our other affiliate partners in order to continue accessing all of the free content here on RealSleep.com.
CPC and affiliate commissions with sleep products manufacturers and distributors.
RealSleep.com has chosen to enter into various affiliate programs and cost-per-click (CPC) advertising programs with a variety of companies that are active in the sleep and sleep products industries.
These relationships generate additional revenue to support the maintenance, updating and expansion of the site. However, the existence of such CPC and affiliate programs in no way influences the types of content we provide to our readers or the results of any research, rankings, guides or reviews published on RealSleep.com
To be fully clear, if at any point you decide to visit any of our affiliate or CPC partners to make a purchase, then RealSleep.com will receive a small commission payment from your purchase.
If you later decide the product does not meet your expectations and you wish to return it, that commission will be retracted back to the partner’s account according to the guidelines of each partner’s return policy.
The purchase patterns of RealSleep.com readers will never influence which products we choose to review or the rankings of those products here on RealSleep.com.
We do not accept payment from any companies or any of our affiliate partners as compensation for product features or favorable reviews in any of our content here on RealSleep.com. No product rankings, reviews or guides are influenced in any way by the presence of an affiliate relationship.
From time to time we may agree to accept free products or merchandise for the sole purpose of evaluating these items and posting our honest, unbiased review for RealSleep.com readers. These relationships will always be disclosed to you, the RealSleep.com reader, up front.
We have instituted the following additional measures to safeguard the accuracy, objectivity and unbiased nature of the products we review here on RealSleep.com.
Every review, ranking and guide includes data from a wide variety of objective sources, including evaluation of independent third party customer and verified owner online reviews, product testing and evaluation in-house and exhaustive research.
Our content specialists and editorial staff do not have access to details about which companies, manufacturers, distributors or brands with whom we have existing affiliate or CPC relationships.
Our writers and editors ensure all product data provided here at RealSleep.com is up-to-date, accurate, factual and detailed. To do this, it may be necessary from time to time to contact company representatives for such information as product warranty, pricing, measurements, materials, composition, recommended uses and other important information. This data in no way influences our in-house product rating system but merely adds extra value for the reader.
