If I see a deal on another website eg http://www.travelzoo.com is it alright to post this to my blog. On travelzoo there is an option to share on wordpress so I assume this is a common thing that people do but I just wanted to check this didn’t break the advertisement rules set by wordpress.com. If this is ok I assume then if i see a cookbook half price on amazon it is also ok to tell my followers about this? For all of the aforementioned situations I would not be getting paid or receiving any gifts from the companies. Thanks for any help, Peter The blog I need help with is tastewales.wordpress.com.

I’ve seen there are a few coupon specific blogs so am more confident this is ok and does not breach the T&C of wordpress.com In each post I think I’ll put a message saying I did not receive any payment or anything in return for posting a link to deal.
