A lot of time goes into every aspect of this site. From the research that goes into each device on file, updating pricing and availability data to the weekly newsletter and the videos I produce. I want to help as many people as possible; not just those who shop online from a few select retailers. As a result, TekAdvisor isn't as profitable or automated as other sites you might encounter when seeking shopping advice.
If I've been of assistance to you and you'd like to return the favour, there are a few easy things you can do to help me continue.

Here are a few places where I like to shop online and which are kind enough to have referral programs. It cost you no extra, and I might get a little bit of money if you buy something there.
One of the major online store and marketplace. It has been a favourite of mine for years now, and I had great success there shopping for cables, bags and other accessories for my gadgets.Support TekAdvisor by Shopping on Amazon.ca!
With free and rapid delivery options, shopping online at Staples is a great time-saving option. I've mostly used this site for office supplies, but it's also a great place to shop for peripherals and accessories.Support TekAdvisor by Shopping on Staples.ca!
Of course, the Microsoft Store sells Surface products, but there's also a lot more in store, including computers by other manufacturers and XBox games.
What I especially like at the Microsoft Store is the Signature Edition computers. You see, most manufacturers are tempted to bundle a bunch of software in their machines. Sadly, this practice translates into reduced performance for brand-new devices and sometimes, even represent a security risk. Signature Edition PCs have no bloatware and no malware, so you can at least start fresh.Support TekAdvisor by Shopping at the Microsoft Store!
I've maintained quite a few Dell computers over the years, and overall, they've aged pretty gracefully. By ordering online straight from Dell, you get fresh hardware (merchandise on store shelves can spend a long time there while online orders are built-to-order). With on-site support options, you get the best of both worlds: savings from Dell's buying volume and stability from strict hardware compatibility testing while being offered customization options you couldn't get in a retail store and local tech support.Support TekAdvisor by Shopping at Dell!
A lot of my visitors come here to assess the exclusive devices sold by Best Buy, and even though I have access to an affiliate program with Best Buy, I usually demonetize those links because they prefer directing affiliate links to their home page rather than product pages directly.
Still, if you're headed there and do not need my advice regarding the products you're seeking on their site, you can help me out by clicking on the link below.Support TekAdvisor by Shopping at Best Buy!
For $12 a month, this subscription service keeps you supplied with fresh games every month, including Indie and Triple-A titles.
I've been a huge fan of Humble Bundle's service for years, being especially partial to their charity support, multi-platform titles, and DRM-free distribution. I must admit I haven't subscribed to their monthly service yet, but that's something I'm hoping to change.
This referral won't exactly put money in my pockets but will help me afford games to play.Help me fight workaholism; Subscribe to Humble Monthly
