Every visitor to this website is our friend. And you have to be honest with friends, right? So, in order to be honest and transparent with you and to comply with the Federal Trade Commission rules and regulations, we publish this disclosure right below. This will help clarify some aspects of how this website works and makes money. If you still have any questions or concerns after reading this, please do not hesitate to contact us via email.
Links and Coupons
So, you’ve probably enjoyed reading our reviews, guides, and tips on how to improve your sleep. You might have even written some comments and shared your personal experience. And this is great! Because our mission is to deliver quality and relevant content to you, and we are very excited about getting your feedback. However, researching and creating engaging content requires many resources, primarily money. So, yes, sleepingocean.com is quite expensive to manage. In order to keep up with those expenses, we cooperate with online retailers and mattress companies through the affiliate marketing system. Here’s how it works:
- we place affiliate links under every item reviewed;
- when you go through our link and buy the reviewed product, we receive a small commission for each purchase;
- we also receive unique coupons and promo codes to share with you so that you can save some money while we get a small bonus from your purchase.
Note that this relationship with sellers won’t affect the final price of the product you’re going to buy. So, you definitely won’t overpay. Instead, your participation will support our website and help us deliver more quality reviews to you. Another advantage of using affiliate links is that they keep our website ad-free. Pop-up ads that cover the entire screen and are hard to close can be really annoying, we know that. Also, we want you to know that even though we professionally cooperate with certain mattress brands, our reviews always try to remain unbiased. We carefully research brands and carry out our own tests to deliver straightforward opinions to you. If the product you’ve purchased through our site happens to not satisfy you so you claim a refund, the commission we earned from your purchase will be repealed. Thus, there’s no point for us to force you into buying inferior products. Besides, we don’t want to make money on your health and comfort.
Some brands may give us their products for free, in exchange for a review. It’s a common practice in an affiliate partnership, especially when the brand releases a new model. But again, we don’t want you to think that this is the reason why we praise some products more than others. The reality is that we receive a product, thoroughly test it, and if it appears to be not as good as advertised, we simply send it back and don’t post anything about it. Because we believe that writing negative opinions is useless. And because we value your trust.
We Are Not Doctors
One more important thing you should know: Even though we are certified specialists and we aim to back up our opinions with facts and relevant studies, we don’t have medical education. All the guides and reviews on our site are based on our own experience and knowledge. We do try to make them as unbiased as possible, but choosing the right mattress is still a matter of each person’s preferences and circumstances. So, we encourage you to do your homework: Research the market, consult your physician and get personalized recommendations about what kind of mattress or pillow will work best for you. Then, test the items you buy and make the most of your trial period. As for us, we will continue sharing our guides and experience with you and hope that it will make your shopping easier.
