Consumer Crew: the Review

You know the saying “When it rains, it pours?” Well 2010-2011 has been our season of torrential downpour.  As in I have had the following appliances, gadgets, gismos break on me:

  • Dishwasher
  • Washing machine
  • 2 vaccuums
  • Electric mixer
  • Blender
  • Refrigerator
  • Microwave
  • Oven

The last three broke within three weeks with the oven being smashed by my then 4 yr old with his feet the day before Christmas Eve. Tears were most definitely shed.
I’m starting to wonder if my appliances are like the toys in Toy Story and all banding together to break on me. …..(…or not. That might be taking it a little far….moving on..)

Enter Consumer Crew:

What does Consumer Crew do?
The short answer-   They help you find the best products for the cheapest price.
The long answer- Consumer Crew is completely personal.  You tell them what you are looking for and they analyze, compare and recommend the perfect match.

Who would benefit from it?
Everyone!  But more specifically it’s great for bridal registries, baby registries, new homeowners, home builders, gifts for spouses, or anyone looking to take the hassle out of buying that “perfect” item.

Example of a review:

So here’s the deal-
You can sign up for a FREE 10 day trial. 
But after that, there is a fee:
Annual — $29.95
3 Month — $11.99
Monthly — $4.99
Honestly, I am a girl who likes a deal. I often don’t subscribe to things.  BUT when I realized that had I used Consumer Crew for any one of my replacement purchases and found the ideal fit, it would save me WAY more than the cost of the membership.
These days $29.95 would get you:

  • 1/4 a tank of gas (where I live in CA)
  • One family trip to Chick-fil-A
  • 2 movie tickets and 1/4 of a drink

You get the idea- NOT MUCH. 
AND right now you can get $10 off the annual subscription.  SO it’s only $19.95 for the whole year.  Even better, right?  Just sign up for the free trial and email and mention me for the discount.

In case you want to see what Consumer Crew is up to,

I’m off to ask their advice on a vacuum and microwave….

Hi- I'm Mique (as in Mickey). I started 30days as an idea file a few years ago. After three years and hundreds of ideas, I now realize that I'll never check them all off my list. When I'm not creating, I love spending time with family and friends and long drives, especially if they end at the beach.

    Hey Miq, this must mean your nest year will be filled with only good luck, right? We replaced our dishwasher last year and I can tell the microwave is starting to head south as well. Not to mention my washer and dryer that is over 10yrs old. This is definitely a company I will be bookmarking. Thanks for the information.

    Ughhh! They always seem to go out at the same time. I hate that! Thanks for sharing that information. It is nice to know you can have a reliable service do all the research for you saving you time and efforts from doing all of that yourself. Thanks Mique!
