Consumer Reports - single copy
April 5, 2012 1:23 PM   Subscribe

Consumer Reports - How can I buy (over the internet) the April issue of Consumer Reports? Difficulties, I live 1/2 hour outside of the shopping areas. Also I'm not really interested in subscribing but if that's the best way then I understand.

For $7 off the Consumer Reports website?

It's just the one issue.

If you can handle not owning a copy, your local library may subscribe and have the issue available for onsite browsing or checkout.

Would you be OK with the online edition? It looks like you're in Corcoran, your local library has access to this via MasterFILE.

Also, yes, your local library subscribes to Consumer Reports.

I'd be glad to email you a PDF of the April issue.

Oops, hit send to soon. The physical copy should be available at your local library, catalog entry is here.

Yes, it is in my local library. But past experience tells me that it may disappear before I get to it.

If you can get to the library before the end of April, you should be able to see it. Libraries usually don't lend the current issues of magazines.

The iPad app, if that's an option.

The MasterFILE content won't disappear. If you're not sure how to navigate the databases, just ask your friendly librarian.
