While we are passionate about personal finance, Common Cents Collaborative ("Common Cents") is not a financial advisor, investment advisor, legal advisor, accountant, or other certified financial professional. Our primary goal is to provide valuable information and insights based on our own experiences as college students. We have encountered numerous challenges and triumphs throughout our financial journeys, both inside and outside of school. By sharing what we have learned, we hope to empower others to navigate their own financial futures successfully. We are not compensated for our efforts, and our knowledge is gained through personal experiences rather than professional certifications.
From time to time, we might recommend products or services that we have personally used and believe to be appropriate for you. While we may receive personal referral bonuses for some of these recommendations, we commit to the following:
Full Disclosure: Any potential bonuses/rewards we might receive will be clearly disclosed to you.
Choice: Alongside any referral links, we will provide non-referral links, giving you the freedom to choose how you proceed.
Integrity: Our recommendations are based on our genuine belief in the product or service, not the potential compensation.
