The Barry Deen Textbook Scholarship

I have created a scholarship fund for students in financial need to help cover the rising costs of textbooks. Students applying for this scholarship are not required to provide any sensitive information, and their contact information will not be used for marketing purposes.

The scholarship fund was created for the sole purpose of fulfilling my personal desire to give back some of the success that society has benefited me, in a way that I can understand directly.

How this site generates revenue

This site makes money in a few simple ways. I follow two principles:

  • I don’t promote anything that I haven’t purchased or created myself;
  • I don’t promote anything that I believe the average person is likely to misunderstand.

For example, if a very smart mathematician develops a complex, market-beating system that actually works, I cannot recommend such a product; the average person would get no benefit, and could be led astray.

In other words, it violates the second principle.

Following these principles, this site is monetized in the following ways:

Amazon Associates Program

Each time you click an Amazon link on my site, and proceed to make a purchase on Amazon, I will receive a sales commission, on your entire cart, once the items ships to you.

Each product category has a different commission amount, and is subject to change at anytime. In general it is between 5% and 12%, but could be more or less on any product.

In some countries, I will not receive a commission. So there is no doubt, I receive commissions from purchases in Canada and The United States.

If you have any problems with your orders, please contact Amazon directly.

Premium Content

I may produce various informational products based on my experience and knowledge I’ve acquired.

Any premium content is backed by a 90 day no questions asked refund policy. That means that if you don’t like the product, or don’t think it was worth the price, or any other reason, you will be issued a refund in full.
