There are a number of ways you can support the site. Some of these benefits you in the form of a discount, and helps out the site as well. Here’s the run-down.
Clever Training (sports technology and gear):
If you’re looking at a GPS device, trainer, or really just about anything else I’ve reviewed here, you’ll get 10% off at Clever Training on everything (yes, everything!). The only items not applicable are clearance and deep-sale items (which are rare). In addition, you get free 3-day shipping for items over $75US to the US. For those international folks, most products have a flat-rate $29 shipping option.
To get the discount simply join the VIP club. It only takes a minute to sign-up and then you get all the sweet benefits. Here’s how to get started.
From time to time Clever Training also offers DCR-specific deals that I’ll make sure are available and well published within the feed.
Amazon.com (everything else on the planet):
If you purchase anything on Amazon.com via the link above (also on the sidebar), it’ll help support the site. While there’s no discounts, there’s no extra cost to you. Many folks will simply click the sidebar link first and then go about their regular Amazon purchasing. Whether that be sports gadgets, or underwear. If you’re considering purchasing something like a diamond ring, then using the link is definitely appreciated.
To use the links, simply click on them first, and then you can do any shopping as normal beyond that (just search within the site once it opens up). There’s no additional cost to you.
Amazon.com International Sites:
In addition to the US Amazon.com site, you can also use any of the local Amazon.com sites in your home country. Here’s the ones available today:
In theory, even when you click on any Amazon.com link, it’ll automatically redirect to your local country (if outside the side). To use the links, simply click on them first, and then you can do any shopping as normal beyond that (just search within the site once it opens up). There’s no additional cost to you.
In addition to Amazon and Clever, you can also pickup products on REI.com and help support the site. There isn’t any discount associated there, but if you happen to be an REI shopper it’s just as easy to use the link first.
The Tip Jar:
Finally, last but not least – a number of you have asked what happened to the tip jar. I always feel sorta guilty having this up, as I’m happy to help folks out without any sort of payment. That said, since I’ve gotten many requests to put it back up, it’s now below. It just uses Google Checkout and you can enter anything from a few pennies to a lot of pennies.
(Eek! As of Nov 22nd, 2013, Google has discontinued this service, sorry!)
No matter if you support the site, thanks for reading!
