Scouted, a new product and shopping section from The Daily Beast, is here to share practical, entertaining, and sometimes unexpected ideas for products that you might like. In the same way that you trust The Daily Beast to help you navigate the worlds of power, politics and pop culture, we’re here to help you navigate the abundance that is internet shopping.
Our goal is to be truly useful to our readers, so while we hope that you like our recommendations and offers enough to buy a product, we want to ensure that you’re getting something out of your time reading each post. Entertainment, education, a laugh, a puzzling chin scratch, a five pound bag of Haribo gummy bears – whatever works for you.
Expect to see a variety of post types and product selections from Scouted. Many posts will be written by familiar bylines from around the web with products selected independently of any relationship with a brand or advertiser. If you see a product in one of those posts, it means the writer — a consummate consumer, themselves— either tried it out or did research to drive their ultimate recommendation. However! If you see a Scouted post with an ‘ad’ label, that means that any products featured in that post came from an outside partner or through a direct relationship with a brand. All Scouted content is created independently of The Daily Beast’s editorial team.
If you’re looking for a specific product recommendation or want to see more from different product categories, let us know! We’re super new and still learning — and at the end of the day we’re scouting for you, so feedback is welcome.
And in case you missed it, we also have a newsletter! You can sign up here.
Please note that if you buy something featured in any Scouted content, The Daily Beast may collect a share of sales.
