How To Support The Sweethome

You can support our work by simply reading and buying the products we have chosen through the links on our guide pages or through the shop links below.

Each of our pieces has many man-hours of work put into them—usually 10x what goes into a typical review these days on many tech blogs and magazines. If we recommend good products, our work is supported through a small kickback from the retailer when you make a purchase. But if we pick junk and you return it, we make nothing. We think that’s a fair system. (More on how our sites work here.)

You’ll notice we usually link to Amazon for making a recommended purchase. We have been Amazon users for many years before this site existed. Because of the convenience of Amazon Prime’s free two-day shipping and Amazon’s great customer service we think it’s among the most trusted way to shop online. If you’d like to support us outside of buying a recommended product you can do so by shopping through any of the following links.


As editors, we have used Amazon’s Prime service and its flat rate two day shipping and the included video streaming service. If you’re interested in supporting our work and trying out Prime, which usually costs $100 a year, you can try out a free 30-day trial through this link below.

The Sweethome does in-house testing and also interviews and consults existing literature from the best sources to make its decisions. We really like a lot of sites like Good Housekeeping, This Old House, Sleep Like The Dead and many others. What we’ve found is that, among the sites with paywalls and subscriptions, Consumer Reports and America’s Test Kitchen/Cook’s Illustrated are some of the most wonderful places for deep testing around. We have much respect for their work and many of our own pieces would be much poorer without theirs. So support them if you can afford to.

International Settings:
For our readers outside the United States we offer a convenient site feature that will automatically convert all our Amazon store links site-wide to the international Amazon store of your preference. To configure this feature or change a previous setting simply click here: International Settings and a notice at the top for your browser should appear. Please note that because specific product models vary from country to country Amazon links outside of the U.S. may reference a product that is a different price, out of stock, not available or incorrect.
