The Power of Licensing and Reprinting CR Content

CR, an independent, nonprofit member organization, has been publishing highly trusted, unbiased recommendations for consumers since 1936. Licensing and reprinting CR content brings reputable guidance to consumers at key decision points where trusted, dependable information is needed most, helping consumers cut through the clutter and misinformation in the marketplace.

“71% of people are more likely to make a purchase online if the product or service comes recommended by others.”

—Hubspot Data

Unparalleled Credibility and Influence

Consumer Reports magazine has won more than 100 awards and was the first to investigate, test, and report on many critical, life-or-death issues. Recommendations are based solely on objective, scientific testing and consumer surveys and are free from manufacturer influence, unlike other pay-to-play programs.
