The Trend Spotter participates in various affiliate marketing programs, which means we may get paid commissions on editorially chosen products purchased through our links to retailer sites. You can learn more about our Affiliate Policy below.
As a team of passionate product journalists and creatives, our mission is simple: to provide readers with the knowledge they need to make an informed decision. At The Trend Spotter, we pride ourselves on publishing independent product and service reviews that put our readers first, and high-quality, impartial content will always be our number one priority. Every product featured in our reviews or features has been carefully curated by our in-house editorial team or our team of freelance reporters.
We believe that products can enrich and empower our readers’ lives, and we base our editorial decisions on this practice. Our expert editors spend hundreds of hours per week researching products, conducting interviewing industry professionals, consulting market research, and reviewing consumer feedback to craft and curate our comprehensive reviews. Our product coverage isn’t based on algorithms or data capture; all products are hand-selected by us from our research and testing.
That said, we may earn an affiliate commission when you purchase a product through a link on our website. This is now a common media practice used by many notable sites and a key revenue pillar for digital publications.
Here’s how it works: When you click a link on one of our pages that goes to an affiliate retailer, the URL automatically notes that you came from The Trend Spotter. If you purchase that product, we may earn a small commission that helps pay for our time and effort. Importantly this process doesn’t cost you more—the price is the same as if you went directly to the site.
These products are chosen independently after careful research and review. If a manufacturer or retailer has paid for any editorial placement on our website, it is noted clearly with a Sponsored Content tag and clear disclosure.
Maintaining trust with our readers is the cornerstone of our editorial policy and critical to ensuring a lasting legacy of accurate product journalism. We will continue to review and discuss products honestly and independently with one simple goal: to help you find the best products possible.
