Want to learn new ways to make extra money?

Join the family to get updates from us and tons of cool freebies:

Our readers always come first.

Our number one goal at DollarSprout is to help readers improve their financial lives. When someone comes to our site, we want to provide the best content possible to help them accomplish that.

So how do we get paid?

We partner with advertisers that share that same vision. If you click on any of our partners’ links on our website and end up completing an offer, making a purchase, opening an account, etc., we may receive a small commission from that advertiser — at absolutely no extra cost to you.

Of course, this may influence which products we review and write about (and where those products are mentioned on DollarSprout), but third party compensation does not affect our editorial due diligence, which is grounded in research and putting our readers’ priorities first.¬†We routinely research and write about products from all sorts of companies, whether or not they pay us.

Long story short — we started DollarSprout by putting our readers first, and that will never change.
