Consumer World Celebrates 25 Years!
Less than two months after Amazon.com was launched in the summer of 1995, a little consumer site called Consumer World was born. It brought readers the week's top consumer stories and money-saving tips, and included a directory of useful consumer-related websites. In that quarter of a century, the mission has remained the same -- to help you become more consumer-savvy, avoid scams, and make more informed buying decisions. We thank our faithful readers for 25 years of support. We hope you continue to find Consumer World valuable (and perhaps even save you a few bucks every now and then). Add your comments.
