Our Policy On Affiliate Links

Truth In Advertising For Our Readers

Advertising Policy

We hate ads. Just like you do, so any advertisements that make their way on the Vittles&Nosh website are meant to be minimal and unobtrusive.

We will never use popups that obscure the screen, auto-playing audio and video, or ads that lock users out of the experience.

If you see these ads here, please let us know.

Contact us immediately with the time, date, and content so we can put a stop to obtrusive ads.



If you purchase a product through a link on our website, we may earn an affiliate commission.

We’re sure you’ve seen this disclaimer before on just about every other website out there. Truth is, everyone is doing it these days, including other notable sites like Wirecutter (NY Times), Outside Magazine, and Wired. So what we’re going to do is get into the nitty gritty and explain how and why we do it. (Hint: It’s to support independent journalism for the good folks like you!)

Guidelines Regarding Endorsements

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has guidelines regarding endorsements and testimonials to protect you from misleading advertising that’s been paid for by a company. Vittles&Nosh is an income source and does occasionally include endorsements and testimonials, it’s important to disclose the following:

We will only endorse or promote products we trust and use ourselves.

  • Vittles&Nosh is a source of income and may be used to promote products, services, or other businesses.
  • We only share and promote products, services, or businesses that we have actually used and believe could be beneficial to you.
  • Affiliate links are used in some posts where we make a small percentage of each sale. It does not result in additional charges or cost you anything extra. Think of it as a kickback. Say you spend $20 on a book about delicious Cuban Sandwiches, because you clicked on a link from our story, we could earn a few pennies. This does not change the price of your product.
  • Mentions of related products, services, or businesses within the content of Vittles&Nosh may or may not be noted as an affiliate in every reference.
  • Products provided to us for review are given free of charge. However, this doesn’t guarantee a positive review – We will always review honestly and openly. Remember, we won’t endorse or post about products we don’t believe in.

How Vittles&Nosh Earn Income:

1. Ads
In certain circumstances, you may see advertisements on various elements of the webpage, including in the sidebars, headers or footers, or in posts on the site. These are images that clearly look like advertisements. 

2. Affiliate links
When you click certain links on one of our pages that goes to an affiliate retailer, the URL automatically notes that you clicked from Vittles&Nosh. If you purchase that product, we may earn a small commission that helps pay for our work. (It doesn’t cost you more—the price is the same as if you went directly to the site.) Affiliate links do not factor into our editorial coverage other than to make it easier for you, our readers, to get the items we suggest, review, or discuss in our content.

If a manufacturer or retailer has paid for any editorial placement on our website, it is noted clearly with a Sponsored Content tag and will have a banner denoting the content is sponsored.

Amazon Associates

We are participants in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn commission fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
