Support my work on Still As Life

If you would like to contribute and help me produce more useful content, you can follow any of the links below to our affiliate partners. You will never pay more by using these links than you would by visiting them directly, and in return for your business, they pay me a small commission.

How does it work?

When you follow one of the affiliate links below, they track any purchases that you make and credit them to me. After a confirmation period, usually 30 days, your purchase is verified, and a commission is paid into my account. In the case of hotel and attraction bookings, it is often 30 days after the date of your stay or attraction visit. If you cancel a booking or return an item, then I don’t get any commission.

A suggestion

If you use any of these websites regularly, you can bookmark this site. Whenever you need to make a purchase or booking, just visit this page, and then click on the merchant you wish to use. That way, you will help me out all the time, and it won’t cost you any more than what you are already paying to buy the product or make the booking! This will also mean that whenever I add new affiliates, you can access them here straight away.

To help make it easier for you to find the merchant you are looking for, I’ve separated them into categories. To be as transparent as possible, I’ve also indicated what their commission payout is.
