Site Review: The Consumerist

December 7, 2005 by SheFindsJacquie

The snarky folks from Gawker Media have a new, retail focused site called The Consumerist. Their goal is to shed a blinding florescent light on the criminal activities of capitalistic consumerism. Slighted by greedy corporate money grubbers? Don’t keep it bottled up, it leads to stress zits and premature wrinkles. Share your grievances with The Consumerist where your gripes fall on sympathetic ears. “Together we will storm the revolving doors of faceless corporations to call them naughty words for genitals, and they will begin to fear us.” It’s anger management for shoppers where anger is not only encouraged, but celebrated. In addition to scathingly calling out the retail nasties, there is a daily morning round-up of web deals but even the deals don’t escape The Consumerist’s snark. The Suck Site Reviews are entertaining, informative in a useless-knowledge-but might-come-up-in-future-editions-of-Trivial-Pursuit kind of way. Frankly, I bow to their oozing sarcasm and worship at the alter of their html aided indictments. I give the site 4 out 5 outdated Prada bags. Bookmark it. Find it at consumerist.com.
