The Slickdeals Money editorial team’s mission is to help our readers assess their options and make informed financial decisions. Whether you’re looking for a new credit card or want to start trading crypto, we provide our honest opinions and recommendations.
The majority of our content is written by freelance writers who are respected subject matter experts in the personal finance space. Their opinions are their own. Slickdeals require them not to be influenced by internal or external business partners. Our writers are required not to take direct compensation from our business partners or advertisers. We also ask our writers to disclose any conflict of interest before they join our freelance team.
Why You Should Trust Us
All our content goes through multiple rounds of reviews and fact checks to make our content as complete as possible. We strive to ensure the information in our articles is current as of the publish date. We don’t allow our partners to influence our opinions. However, they do occasionally review content to ensure we are compliant with how their products and offer terms should be presented. Our roundup articles featuring offers from multiple issuers, such as the Best Cash-Back Credit Cards, are ordered according to our research-based methodologies. We assess each offer against several criteria – including overall offer value, required spend, regional availability and length of promotional period – to ensure we prominently promote the offers that present the most overall value to readers.
How We Make Money
We make money through our partners. When people sign up for a new service or product via links in our articles, we get compensated for referring them. Partners may also pay us to cover them in our articles, in which case they will be labeled as sponsored. This may influence what we write about and how they are featured on our site, but it doesn’t affect our opinions or advice. We also write about products and companies who don’t pay us if we believe it’s beneficial to our readers.
