I post the deals as I find them. But keep in mind, Prices and promotions are subject to change at any time and without notice. If you think something sounds too good to be true, check with the merchant before you head out.
Boston Living on the Cheap participates in affiliate programs. That’s how the bills get paid! Though the site earns a tiny bit of revenue if you buy a deal through one of our affiliate links, I retain full editorial control over the deals posted. I limit affiliate links to the types of deals I routinely post anyway.
