Consumerist Forums Roundups


  • A reader wonders if there a way to legally “bump up” their income to meet the minimum required to receive money from the upcoming stimulus package. What about income from E-bay?
  • A Honda CR-V owner makes a costly discovery. The engine in her vehicle needs frequent valve inspections while the engine in the manual does not. A large repair bill ensues. Is Honda at fault?
  • A reader’s fiance gets treated like the bride of Frankenstein at David’s Bridal. Is this sort of treatment commonplace with the chain?
  • Sears doesn’t seem serious about their posted price matching policy. Reader claims that Sears offers a discount if an item’s price is mismarked. Yet when put to task the cashiers simply throw their hands up.
