Amazon Affiliate/Influencer Program

Stacy Ling’s Bricks ‘n Blooms participates in the Amazon Services LLC Associates & Influencer Program that is an advertising affiliate program.

This allows me to earn a small commission by linking products to Amazon.com. When a user clicks on an Amazon affiliate link and buys something, I earn a small commission.

Thus, as an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

There is no impact on the product cost and does not result in any additional charges or fees to the buyer.

While I may include affiliate links in my blog posts, it is important to note that all opinions are my own and I will never recommend a product that I do not believe in or have not used myself.
