In an effort to be transparent about how this website makes money, and to comply with applicable Federal Trade Commission rules and regulations (see https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/advertising-and-marketing/online-advertising-and-marketing for more information), we have published these disclosures. If you have any questions or concerns, let us know by sending an email. And read this carefully !!
Every time a consumer uses a link, a ‘promotional code’, or a ‘discount code’ on this website to purchase a product, we are usually paid a referral fee or what some call an ‘affiliate commission’. We prefer the term “referral fee” because sellers earn commissions when they make a sale, and we are not sellers.
We sincerely try to call it ‘as we see it’, and if we get a referral fee in the process, that’s okay. But if we don’t, that’s okay too. Simply because we like a product and choose to review it doesn’t necessarily mean we receive a referral fee. There are some companies that do not have referral reimbursement programs or they may have a program, but for some reason we have decided not to participate in their program. We have included a list of brands that have referral compensation programs in which we participate and earn referral compensation.
You may think … but does the amount of the referral fee differ per product or brand? Yes! Certainly. And while we try to be objective mattress grading machines, we are human beings just like you. In any case, we would like to make you aware of this potential “conflict of interest” so that you have all the information you need when you read and consider our reviews. The amount of the referral fee can certainly affect our ability to be completely unbiased.
Will the customer be charged more as a result of purchases through this website? No! And you can go and see this for yourself. If you go directly to the seller’s own website (and you clear your cache before doing this) you can see what the price would be with and without using the link or code on our website.
Each company listed below pays us a referral fee each time a consumer uses a link or code on this website to purchase a product with (outside of the Amazon Associates program):
** If you don’t see a company above, we may have a relationship with the company through the Amazon Associates Program. However, if the product is not available on Amazon and / or if there are no links on our website to direct you to the applicable Amazon product page, we probably do not have any affiliate relationship with the company. **
SleepAdvisor.org is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide websites with a way to earn referral/advertising costs by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. If you purchase a product through Amazon through those links, Amazon will pay us a referral fee.
Sometimes manufacturers send us products for free to review. In most cases, this does not significantly affect how we rate or review a product. To learn more about this, read (the information here) about how we can research and/or test products.
Regarding the products, the focus of our website is limited to reviewing products for sale online. If a product can only be purchased in a store, it is unlikely that you will find a review of that product on our website. And if you find one, let us know so we can remove it.
When reading information on our website, we recommend that you explore each category and/or topic that best fits your unique buying needs, rather than going based on the order in which we listed the products. We also recommend that you read how we can research and/or test products (read more here). Also, keep in mind that the information on this website should only be a starting point to assist you in your own research and search for sleep problems. Good luck with your shopping trip! And as always, a good night’s sleep for everyone!

You should always seek the advice of your physician or another qualified healthcare provider if you have any questions about any medical condition. The content of this website is for general informational purposes only.
When we update pages on our site, we try to notify our readers by posting the date the page was last modified. However, these updates may or may not be of a substantive nature. In other words, an update can be performed to correct minor grammatical errors, instead of changing product rankings, for example.
Please also note that we may first make updates (including content updates) to certain pages before we have the opportunity to update the same or similar content on other pages of the site.
