What are Consumer Reports?

Consumer Reports Defined

Consumer Reports is an independent, nonprofit organization that works to promote fairness, trust, and transparency in the marketplace by sharing reports that evaluate the value, quality, or authenticity of goods or purchases.

Established in 1936, Consumer Reports has become a credible source for consumers to evaluate before they make a major purchase. There are currently more than 6 million members that contribute to consumer reports and work to make sure the marketplace is fair and just.
