Boston Consumers' CHECKBOOK

"CHECKBOOK comes to town after beginning in Washington D.C., and San Francisco, where it’s built a reputation for excellence in consumer journalism."
Boston Consumers' CHECKBOOK

"Consumers' CHECKBOOK patterns itself after Consumer Reports. It takes no ads and does in-depth analyses, packaging customer survey research with its own pricing data and advice. Companies aren't listed unless Consumers' CHECKBOOK has at least 10 consumer assessments."
A Consumers' CHECKBOOK Subscriber

"Lot's of information there, more then I expected.   My first thought is I wish I had known about Consumers Checkbook sooner as I certainly would have subscribed a while ago.  "
