Welcome to Consumer Reports Advocacy

Consumer Reports is an independent nonprofit organization that works for a fair, safe and transparent marketplace.

Since we were founded as Consumers Union in 1936, we have advocated for the rights of all consumers. Now, we are united under the Consumer Reports name, bringing together our trusted testing, research, journalism, and advocacy.

We hope you will partner with us and our six million members for a better world.

Ways to Pay

Debit cards, gift cards, online payments and more

There are many ways to pay, including debit cards, gift cards, and newer emerging methods. Often different payment methods come with very different protections. Consumers Union exposes bad practices as well as advocates for strong consumer protections for these ways to pay.
