Get the most out of every dollar by making informed purchasing decisions through Consumer Reports online. Access is free for Vernon Area Public Library cardholders when logging in through the library website at VAPLD.info/CR.
Consumer Reports online offers a convenient want to assess and compare products in almost any category from coffee makers to cars. Reliable information about how a product is expected to perform is especially important for big-ticket items like TVs, appliances, and electronics -- doubly so for gifts -- no one wants to waste money or frustrate loved ones with stuff that breaks or under-performs.
By combining laboratory testing with insights from hundreds of thousands of product owners, Consumer Reports gives consumers the most complete information available on each product. The site also offers money-saving advice and tips, buying guides, videos and more.
Full access to the unbiased ratings, reviews, and recommendations on their website is typically available only to Consumer Reports members, at a cost of $59 per year. However, Vernon Area Public Library cardholders can enjoy complimentary access to the site by logging in through the library's website using their library card number.
