At Chicken Scratch n Sniff I strive to provide you with all the best tips, helps, and more. Maintaining this website is a lot of work. I also use this blog to make some money (this is my job) so I include affiliate or referral links when appropriate as well as some sponsored blog and social media posts. This doesn't cost you any extra money; it let's me be the middleman. The FTC requires that I let you know whenever I use affiliate links or do sponsored posts. You can read about the FTC Rules here.
My opinion is always my own and I don't recommend things that I wouldn't use myself. In fact, many of them I have used which is why I'm telling you about it. I take the time to make sure what I'm sharing with you is quality. I recommend things that I believe in and trust. The advertised company itself, however, is responsible for any claims or guarantees, not me.
An affiliate link means when you buy something through my link, I earn a small amount of money from that sale (anywhere from 4% to 50%). This doesn't cost you anything extra. A referral link means I get money or extra points if you sign up- including to free sites. Sponsored posts mean I am paid to write that post but all opinions are still my own. I have ads throughout this site as well that are clearly marked. Sometimes I get paid for you visiting my site and seeing the ad; other times it is based on your click or purchase. Occasionally, you will also see me post on Facebook or Instagram about a deal or product as well. If it is sponsored or an affiliate link you will see a tag indicating that such as #ad, (affiliate), #sponsored or something similar.
