Vital Dollar is primarily supported by advertising revenue and we may be compensated by third-party advertisers and affiliates. If a visitor clicks a link on our website that leads to one of our referral partners or advertisers, we may be compensated for purchases or actions taken (like signing up for an account or downloading an app).

Our relationship with advertisers and referral partners may impact the frequency and placement of those links. For example, we may be more likely to write and publish a review about a financial institution, investment opportunity, company, or app because of the referral partnership. Advertisers and referral partners may also be listed in prominent locations within the articles where they are mentioned.

However, the advertiser or referral relationship will not impact any opinions or what we say about those advertisers or referral partners. We strive to maintain integrity by providing honest evaluations and opinions regardless of any commissions that we may or may not receive.

Although we earn a commission from some of the companies, products, and services that we mention on the site, we also mention many others that are not advertisers or referral partners. We aim to provide a wide variety of options for our readers, but we are not able to cover all products and services that may be available.

The opinions shared on this website represent the opinions of the author alone.

Vital Dollar has partnered with CardRatings for our coverage of credit card products. Vital Dollar and CardRatings may receive a commission from card issuers. Opinions, reviews, analyses & recommendations are the author’s alone and have not been reviewed, endorsed or approved by any of these entities.

Vital Dollar is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.

Although we are typically paid a referral commission per sale or per lead, in some situations we are paid a flat fee by an advertiser in order to publish an article. Whenever this is the case, the article is labeled as “sponsored by ____” at the beginning of the article.

In summary:

  • Advertising and referral relationships may impact how and where companies, products, and services are mentioned or our site.
  • Advertising and referral relationships will not impact what we say about those companies, products, and services.
  • We also cover other companies, products, and services that we feel may be beneficial to our readers.
