Affiliate Disclosure

Last updated: June 1, 2023 by Ethan Green

The short version

At No Sleepless Nights, I love reviewing sleep products to help you find ones that can improve your sleep. But let’s be honest, creating video and written reviews takes a lot of time, and I have bills to pay!

So, here’s the deal: Sometimes, if you click on a link in my article and make a purchase from the company’s website, I may earn a commission.

These links are called affiliate links, and you’ll find them all over the internet. They’re used by individuals and companies on their blogs, websites, and social media pages.

Not every link on this website can make me money though. For example, links that lead to journal articles, news websites, medical information websites, and government organizations aren’t set up to earn me a commission.

But here’s the important part: If you’re reading an article where I talk about a specific sleep product or compare different options, it’s safe to assume that I could receive a financial commission if you decide to purchase the product through the provided link.

If you ever come across a link and you’re not sure whether it’s an affiliate link, it’s better to err on the side of caution and assume it might earn me a little something if you make a purchase.

Remember, your trust is valuable to me, and I want to be transparent about how I support this website. Rest assured, I’ll always strive to provide you with honest reviews and recommendations.

Amazon Associates disclosure

Amazon has specific wording that they expect people to use when including affiliate links:

As an Amazon Associate, No Sleepless Nights may earn commissions from qualifying purchases from

(Yes, I know…yawn…)

The longer version

Why I use affiliate links and not adverts

One of the main ways to make money with a blog is through adverts. You know, the kind some websites still plaster all over their sidebars and header and sometimes pop up annoyingly out of the blue.

I don’t like those ads when I visit other websites as I find them ugly, distracting, and annoying. Therefore, I don’t include them on my website either.

Instead, I choose to set up affiliate links with the companies that will allow me to, and where I feel it is appropriate to do so.

I don’t accept upfront financial payment

Sometimes companies ask me how much they can pay me to do a review. I always refuse. I do sometimes accept a demo product to test out, but in most cases, I personally buy the products I review.

How the affiliate commissions work

Every company has a different approach to setting up affiliate links and commissions.

I always know in advance how much commission I might make if you buy a specific product, but I don’t control that commission rate. It can be as little as 0.5% and as much as 20% in some cases.

The link I use will have a tracking code specific to me. That way, the company knows to pay me a commission if you buy a product after clicking on my link.

So if you don’t want me to earn a commission, you can just type the company’s name into a search engine and find the product yourself. Or type the company’s website address into your browser at the top of the screen, and then search for the product.

Obviously, I’ll always be grateful to readers who use my links, but understand if you’d prefer to remove the affiliate part.

Some companies have their own affiliate management program built into their website; others use third party websites like Shareasale, Impact Radius, or Parternize. That explains why sometimes you might click on a link and see an intermediary website address very briefly before landing on the company’s website.

Eventually, I will accumulate enough commissions from a company to get a payout. The threshold for this payout amount changes from company to company. After that, I have to declare it as earnings and pay tax on it – just like a normal job!

How I resist the temptation to promote products with the best commission rates

The existence of affiliate commissions creates an obvious temptation to hunt for the highest paying products and say how amazing they are!

Personally, I try to resist the lure of the dark side, because I have principles. I’m here to help readers, not simply make as much money as possible.

I’d like to think there is some solid evidence that I stick to my principles on this website. Firstly, I don’t include any paid links at all in most of my reviews of sleep aids. So I’ve spent a lot of time testing and reviewing products that don’t earn a commission.

Secondly, I’ve spent lots of time creating videos and articles about products that pay smaller commissions comparatively, such as sleep masks, earplugs, and white noise machines. Sure, it all adds up. But it’s not the same as only focussing on expensive mattresses.

I also think it’s important to discuss products that interest me personally and that I’m happy to use in my home – either because I actually need them, or because I’m curious to see what they are like. And that decision is based on necessity, not price.
