Be aware that Frugal Reality uses affiliate and referral links.

With affiliate and referral links, we may receive monetary compensation or credits to a service when users commit to the product or service (such as with Amazon products, as Frugal Reality is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program).

We only link to products and services that we strongly believe many users would enjoy.

We disclose our use of monetized links in accordance with the FTC Advertising Endorsements Guide. Any page on Frugal Reality with even one monetized link receives a very clear and obvious disclosure that appears before the body of the article.

User trust is extremely important to us, and we prove it. Suggesting products/services to you is a win-win. It’s important for us to receive compensation from these companies so we are able to produce more helpful content for users. Affiliate and referral links advance our just cause.
