Spend money to save money - part 8
Consumer Reports is a magazine that has been around for years and is well trusted. I love reading product reviews and that is all that this company does. My wife brings it home from the library now and then but you may want to purchase a subscription. The cost is only $26 for a year. By using the advice in this publication you can easily recoup this small cost. I like having a few magazines around the house anyway, to leaf through for light reading and general awareness. Consumer Reports also has a service for those looking into buying a brand new car. It is called New Car Buying Systems. The report is only $14 and it tells you what the dealer paid, what the dealer receives in hidden rebates, and what the Consumer Reports bottom line price is. This is definitely a way to spend a small amount of money to save chunks of cash at the time of purchase.
