This blog is a partnership blog written by the owners of the business Seattle Moms Deal Finder. We are sisters who love to shop, and through this venue we are sharing own time, experiences, personal opinions and recommendations. We make all attempts to verify that our information is accurate, and in cases where we are unsure, we specify as such. We are not responsible for typo mistakes, sales that are no longer valid, or other time sensitive offerings. We are not responsible for products featured on our blog that have since been recalled. If in any way, you feel a product is misrepresented or that we have violated another companies terms, please contact us immediately. We will cooperate in every reasonable and proper way with everyone we promote and advertise for. For general questions about the blog, issues, concerns or inquiries you may e-mail us at seattlemomsdealfinder@gmail.com.

This blog began as a hobby in 2009, and we applied for a business license in 2010. We are a general partnership that gains a small revenue through paid advertising/sponsorship, paid insertions, affiliate links, referral links, and other forms of compensation (such as product merchandise and samples). We are aware there will be instances when our compensation may influence our blog posts, and we strive to maintain an objective consumer point-of-view and share our opinions (either good or bad) honestly. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely our own. In many instances, product and picture use are verified with the manufacturer or company.  We often use pictures of our children.  Please do not steal our photos.  If in any way, you feel a product is misrepresented or that we have violated your terms, please contact us immediately.
