The quick version

I’m occasionally sent items to review for free. Items received are for consideration only and I am under no pressure to mention anything I am sent. I will always mark said items with an asterisks (*) or let you know in the body of the text.

If a post is sponsored I will mark the post as such – you will always be made aware. At this moment in time I have no on going relationship with any brand or company but I do accept occasional sponsorship on a post by post basis. My opinion of a product or service will always be open and honest.

I am a member of MODE advertising which includes sidebar ads, website skins and other forms of advertising. I also use Google Adsense for sidebar advertising.

I am a member of affiliate programmes, links become affiliate on publication. I may be paid a small amount if you make a purchase although this will not be added to the price you pay.

Thank you for supporting A Thrifty Mrs

Disclosure

A Thrifty Mrs employs the use of relevant affiliate links, which are usually added by third party partnerships through Skimlinks. If you’d like to read their privacy policy you can do so here and you can find more information on the cookies they use here. As such this means if you make a click on an affiliate link, reaching a retailer and purchase something, I may receive a very small amount or a percentage of your purchase. This amount does not add any additional amount to the price you pay as a consumer. Affiliate links are automatically activated after publication and after an opinion has been formed.

A Thrifty Mrs is a for profit blog. We are proud to accept sponsors and partners in a variety of forms from various businesses from across the globe. A Thrifty Mrs allows sponsored content with relevant brands who can add something to the discussion – readers are made aware if a post has been supported or provided by an outside source.

From time to time I am sent items to review. Items received are for consideration only – when I receive a product I am under no pressure to review. I mention in the body of text and with an asterisk (*) when an item is a PR sample.
