New Affiliates - Support TRS Triathlon at no cost to you
You may have noticed that the 'Support TRS Triathlon
' link has moved to the main menu bar, and some of the site's ads have changed from Google ads to some specific website ads.TL/DR: If you click on the Amazon, Vitamin Shoppe, Competitive Cyclist, or Wahoo links, and use the same web browser to buy anything from those sites within 24 hours, we get a cut. And you get to feel great about helping to keep the lights on for another month.
Instead of serving you only random(ish) (and sometimes downright creepy) Google ads, we're trying a few affiliate sites with products we think you might be thinking of buying anyway. We get some kind of commission if you use these links to buy stuff on the linked sites, and you pay no extra or hidden fees.
Since we have an active community here, we are in the advantageous position of asking for feedback. Are you interested in our affiliated products? Are you offended by the ads? Are they blocked by your ad blocker? Do you think a particular ad should be more or less prominent? Feel free to lambaste me here, at your leisure.
The affiliate links, like the one on our Support page
, create a cookie in your browser that's good for 24 hours. So if you click through our site to e.g. Amazon, and buy anything using that same web browser in the next day, we get a cut. All the affiliate links work that way - Amazon, Vitamin Shoppe (sidebar), Competitive Cyclist, and Wahoo (footer ads).
Thanks for your support - you're all my favourites,
