Does Consumer Reports show advertisements?

Consumer Reports differs from other automotive review magazines in more ways than only how it receives its vehicles. 

On the Consumer Reports website, there are no adverts visible as you navigate.

Another element of the Consumer Reports review ethos is that it is ad-free.

So how does the company generate money if it doesn't profit from advertisements? 

The expenses of keeping a full-time workforce and buying so many automobiles each year would undoubtedly be high.

The group mostly raises money through subscriptions. Every review and story that the publication produces is available to subscribers for $35 a year via a membership to the Consumer Reports website

In addition, Consumer Reports offers a print publication that interested readers can purchase.
