I recently signed up for the online version of Consumer Reports and was given the following offer:

I removed the my session information from the link and the page still works.

ConsumerReports

Enjoy

Good deal!

This is a good deal.
I would do it, but my friend subscribes to online subscription and gave me acct and password. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border=0>

Good deal, Consumer Reports is a good magazine but you can rarely find it discounted.

it is a very good price.

Good price, but if you read carefully, they automatically renew your subscription at the "lowest annual subscription rate available", whatever that means. I'd subscribe if they didn't do that, it's not worth the hassle to me to have to cancel my subscription.

Good catch. That is usually why things like newspapers offer low intro rates as long as you use a credit card. They figure they can make some money back when people do not realize the new, higher fee, or simply never cancel.

anyone getting this (after attempting to place order):

Don't you know that's a GREAT SERVICE that the provide by automatically renewing? This way, you never miss an issue. You could be dead, and keep receiving the magazines regularly. Betya that happens more often than one would expect. Did anyone sign up for the renewal at the "lowest annual subscription rate available" and get charged the $12? Doubt it! It's probably full price renewals at the standard subscription rate.

All magazine companies use despicable tactics to attract subscribers, and actually, I think Consumer Reports is among the better half of the magazines. That said, $12 is a good deal, and even the full price is a good deal if you can save time/money with their recommendations.

Also, many public libraries provide free access to Consumer Reports (both magazine and online access).

For example, Montgomery County (Maryland) public libraries gives me online access from home to Consumer Reports backissues (with 3 month delay - i.e., the latest issue I can see is March 2004).

So for those of you who don't need immediate access to the most current issue, check with your local public library. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border=0>

Virtual account number with a $12 limit should fix that little problem. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0>

I just renewed my subscription 2 months ago. If I still do this deal, will it just add to the end of my current subscription?

I think it's the convenience factor. Pretty much anything is at the library but there's the time and gas involved in going there and finding - as opposed to getting it for $1 an issue.

I think he meant accessing the library system from your home computer. Details are in this thread:

Free access to Consumer Reports online, THROUGH your LOCAL LIBRARY Web site (from your house!)

Just tried the online link to the EBSCO db in Austin, TX. Not only is CR available & searchable, but it is totally current - no 3 month delay. Awesome !!!
