We sometimes use affiliate links for products we reference on the blog and on our social media accounts. The way this works is simple: if you click on one of the links and end up purchasing an item, the retailer pays us for sending them your business. You don’t pay anything extra for your item.
While affiliate links help support Backlights & Buttons financially, we will never recommend an item that we don’t personally stand behind as a quality product. And in the interest of full disclosure, we will include a note at the top of posts which include affiliate links. On Twitter, messages with affiliate links will include the #aff or #affiliate hashtag.
Many of our affiliate links are through Amazon, but we may occasionally use affiliate links with other retailers as well. Backlights & Buttons is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.
