About Shop Smart

First published in 2006, this sister publication of trusted buying guide Consumer Reports provides quick, easy-to-use, unbiased shopping advice to help you find the best products and services at the best value in each monthly issue. Product reviews cover everything from low-end purchases, like beauty products, food, and cleaning supplies, to higher-priced items, like appliances and computers.

Beyond product recommendations and reviews, Shop Smart offers smart shopping tips, like how to save big at discount stores and major retailers, and smart spending advice, particularly for common issues, like car repairs, merchandise returns, and negotiating prices. Devoted to helping consumers make the best choice every time, the magazine accepts no advertising or free samples to ensure its reviews are without bias or influence from retailers and brands.

Content in the magazine is divided into these sections: "Shop Smarter This Month," tips on finding deals, like free shipping; "Shoptalk," hot picks from the editors on new merchandise and general shopping recommendations; and "Buying Guide," which is subdivided into these categories: "Home & Yard," "Food & Drink," "Health & Safety," "Beauty & Fashion," and "Cars & Tech."

Anyone looking to get the greatest value for his or her money would appreciate a subscription to Shop Smart magazine!

    I was never one for magazines, however, this magazine I read from cover to cover. I can't believe how many things appear in this magazine that I may be interested in buying. I love the articles on shopping online. Try it, you'll love it!

      This magazine is the forerunner for savings. If there is a great online site or special information to be found about a product I usually read it in Shop Smart first.

          This is one of the few magazines that I read cover to cover. Yes it is on the expensive side but I look forward to reading it when it arrives. I like it more than the original Consumer Report and have made several people aware of this magazine who love it just as much as I do. Thanks for an amazing read.

                      from New Albany, IN

                      I waited about 3yrs before I broke down and odered a subscription but am so glad I did. This magazines tells about many items from food to small appliances and does comparisons. I never throw this magazine away, I've gone back to use for research many times. definitely worth the money
