About WBUR Guides

WBUR, Boston’s NPR News Station, is supported through our listeners, readers, and donors. When you buy products or services through the links found within WBUR Guides, the station may earn an affiliate commission to support our journalism and independent news.

WBUR Guides highlight products and services we hope will add value to your life. We care about your health, well being, and enjoyment of arts and travel. The Guides cover interesting and emerging products in the areas of health, fitness, gifts, travel, and culture. The Guides are written by outside contributors with experience in consumer products. Their contributions are based on their personal perspective, research, and experiences.

If you make a purchase through one of our links, many, but not all, of the products and services in the Guides will generate an affiliate commission from the retailer. If you return a purchase because you are dissatisfied with the product or you believe the guide was inaccurate, we will not receive any revenue from the original transaction. Our incentives are aligned: by us highlighting great products, and you choosing to purchase them, both you and public media will benefit.

WBUR News follows rigorous journalistic standards, and we maintain editorial independence between WBUR Guides and our journalism operations.

WBUR Guides is a project from WBUR’s BizLab. To find out more, reach us at bizlab@wbur.org.
