A lack of transparency results in distrust and a deep sense of insecurity.

Our Advertising and Affiliate Partner Practices

It’s time that readers know how a travel blog makes money. For too long, readers of popular travel blogs and websites have been mislead. We’re not going to let that happen with The College Points. Transparency is important. Without, readers cannot and should not trust The College Points or any other site.

How We Make Money


Throughout this site, you'll probably encounter a variety of banner and text advertisements. These ads may be hand-picked by our team or randomly selected by third-party platforms.


All posts and content featuring affiliate links or ads are clearly noted at the beginning of each post or page. The payout from these affiliates does not influence the frequency to which an affiliate is promoted or displayed on this site.


On occasion, The College Points will promote our own products within individual posts and across the site. As these products are sold by The College Points, the price and profit per purchase is set by us.
