Occasionally, we at Over Drinks will post a review of a restaurant, event, or item we attended or received at no cost. When this happens we will include a disclaimer on the page per FTC requirements.


For example, for restaurant or event reviews, you might see something like the following:

  • Sponsored: We attended this event at no cost in exchange for writing this blog post.
  • Sponsored: [BRAND] provided this [ITEM] at no cost in exchange for this blog post.


Other times we may include an affiliate link to an item we find useful or helpful to our audience. An affiliate link means that, if you click on the link from our web page and purchase the item, we will receive a small percentage of that sale. It will look something like this:

  • www.sample-webpage.com/fantastic-item-for-you (affiliate link)


In addition to these text alerts, there will also be a visual alert as such:

FTC Disclosure (writer got fed)  FTC Disclosure - writer got schwag  FTC Disclosure - writer got items  FTC Disclosure - writer got paid

REGARDLESS of sponsorship or affiliate, all opinions on this site will be our own and will not be swayed by company generosity.


If you do not see a sponsorship or affiliate designation, then we received no monetary incentive for that post.
