Giveaway: $50 Target Gift Card from Consumer Crew

So, maybe I already told you this story.

I’m old and I’m losing my mind.

Anyway, my oven blew up in September.  I opened the door to put in some brownies I was making for a friend and BOOM!

More like BOOM!

All the lights went out in my house.  I had 8 boys 7 and under here and they stopped dead in their tracks.  Power was out clear to the street.  A handy neighbor took care of that situation (possibly illegally Winking smile), but the oven was a goner.

Have you ever tried to take 4 kids appliance shopping (or even shopping for milk, really)?  You’ll wish you were going in for a lobotomy.  Trust.

A dear, sweet neighbor offered to take the kids so we could replace the oven that night.  Did I mention the dishwasher was dying a slow painful death and needed to be replaced, too?  We had to make some purchases and we had to make them FAST.  There really wasn’t time to research like I like to.  That’s where Consumer Crew comes in.


Consumer Crew has already done the research!

I know the first thing you want to know (because Crap I’ve Made has the smartest readers on Earth) is how much it costs.

$29.95/year (BUT, you can get $10 off that if you email them at [email protected] after signing up for the free trial and tell them I sent you!)
$11.99/3 months

Want to see some sample reports?


Head on over to their example page and take a look around.  (But don’t forget to come back here and enter to win $50 to Target!)

What’s in it for you?

  1. Sergers I want to buy one but am paralyzed at the thought.

  2. Our stovetop has one burner that won’t work anymore so we are thinking of replacing the whole thing (it is a ceramic top so apparently it is hard to get just one element repaired). I would also like a more powerful sewing machine. Oh and a new laptop (but I am pretty convince I should get an apple).

  3. I followed them on Twitter.

  4. Stormy R says:

    Cameras for sure! I want a new one to take lots of pics of the baby when she arrives, but there are sooo many options.

  5. Food would be awesome…like especially the new food products out there. I always want to try things, but don’t want to waste my money!
    Appliances would be great too…we are in the market for a new fridge, range, & microwave and I know what looks good, but I want to know if they work good! :)

  6. Technology like ipads and phones for sure!

  7. I would like to know which camera and new sewing machine to buy since those are the two items I am starting to look for (because everytime I look, I feel overwhelmed).

  8. Definitely cameras!

  9. I would love a new oven. Mine is super old and cooks unevenly. I have to rotate my food half way through cooking to make sure the one side doesn’t burn and the other gets cooked! =)

  10. I would like them to review cameras – there is just so much to learn and know about them – confusing!

  11. Heather says:

    I’d totally have them research a flat screen tv. I don’t even know where to begin. I don’t want the most expensive kind. I just want good quality at a great price!

  12. Cameras. I’m ready to move up from my Canon Power Shot but know NOTHING about cameras.

    • You shouldn’t have to become an expert in a technology before you can enjoy the benefits of it. Just send us a summary of what you are looking for and we will do the leg work.

  13. I’m always looking for a good mop. Regular mop or sponge mop or steam mop or swiffer or one with a bottle of cleaner attached? Definitely mops.

  14. Liz Brueseke says:

    Definitely a fridge… ours is one we got for free and I’m always afraid it’s just going to die…

  15. Jamison says:

    I have spent hours recently researching a new Canon digital rebel. I have one that I love, it’s now 5 years old and I ready to upgrade. When making a serious investment on a camera I could use some help with this decision. I am terrible with decision making to begin with, so this service would be helpful.

    • Half of our users are just like you. We’re here to provide peace of mind and confidence in your purchase, not to boss you around. We’ll do the grunt work to help you make the decision.

  16. Either bedding or a silhouette! :) (interesting combo, I know) ;) Thanks!

  17. Paula in MN says:

    I have a long list, but what I really want and need is a dishwasher. The 12 year old female model and the 9 year old male model are not cutting it anymore.

  18. I need Consumer Crew to research toddler beds for me. We are almost at that point. I want a safe, but cute one at a great price!

  19. Washer and Dryer!

  20. “Like” on FB.

  21. I like Consumer Crew on facebook!

  22. We are in the market for a new bed. I’d love them to research that for me!

  23. Looks very interesting. I always spend way too much time trying to get review of items I buy online. Right now I’m looking for a camera for my teen, guess that would be the first thing!

  24. Sergers…I want one but know nothing about them.

  25. I’d like them to review a few different sewing machines.

  26. Donna Bowes says:

    Thinking about an above ground pool! Would love someone to do the research for me! Thanks for the giveaway!

  27. Ooooh
    I need a new vacuum cleaner – canister, bagged. My olde one died. I knew it was coming and boy was it great for it to die on trash day! I just picked it up and put it right out side (the engine was burning up, I think it had a stroke)

    I also need a dishwasher.

    AND I would like a sewing machine.
    I have an olde one Singer 316G and would really like something versatile and good quality not made in China

    the end
    Have a nice week-end ~Rosemary

  28. Amy Amos says:

    Cameras!!! Love this website!!!

  29. I “liked” ConsumerCrew on Facebook. :)

  30. I’d like some research into the best vacuum cleaner in my budget. In other words, not those $500+ ones that are no doubt totally awesome but out of my price range.

  31. Donna Bowes says:

    Liked them on facebook!

  32. An oven. Ours is.. junk. I really need one new at some point, but research is such a flippin’ headache that I haven’t bothered starting. I really hate appliances, lol!
    Although, vaccuum cleaner help would rock, too. Pet, child, stains, wax, thread… urgh. I kill vaccuums. :)

  33. Vanessa says:

    A camera. Mine bit the dust

  34. Amanda M. says:

    I would love to see some reviews on cameras. It seems that the info out in blog land is more of a personal preference. I want some cold, hard facts!

  35. Amanda M. says:

    I like them on FB.

  36. Amanda M. says:

    I follow them on Twitter.

  37. Dishwashers. I totally relate to the dishwasher slowly painfully dying :-(

  38. I liked them on FB.

  39. Following on Twitter.

  40. Kristen says:

    Sewing machines! I cannot find a truly unbiased opinion. Or a nice blender. Or stand mixers. Bosch or Viking? I guess they could do lots for me!

  41. I need a new refrigerator and new washer/dryer.

  42. sangeetha says:

    affordable furniture stores

  43. Stoves. Mine sucks!

  44. marie anderson says:

    Entry level cameras for the little ones. We are getting ready to buy our grandson a digital camera for Christmas and want to see what kind would be best for him and not too costly for us!

  45. Definitely something electronic, but not an ipad because I already know those are overrated.

  46. TV. Maybe if I had them check it out, I wouldn’t have two Sony’s with a blue blob on the sides. :)

  47. It looks like they already have the things I would need to research – appliances, computers, and cameras!

  48. Window air conditioners!

  49. Dishwashers!

  50. Kristen says:

    Oh man the things I need to research…Nook color vs Ipad, a new camera, and my big stress lately a video camera!

  51. JennD (NC) says:


  52. They should research top load non-”efficient” washers. My experience with “high efficiency” washers has led me to decide more water really is better. :)

  53. I am following on Twitter

  54. And I liked on FB. I also thought of something else they should research – breast pumps in various price ranges.

  55. Blenders & a vacuum. Can you tell I’m having a party? ;)

  56. Darlene S says:

    Laptop for my daughter, that wont break the bank!

    • We’ve been getting a lot of “Computers for College” as graduation presents lately. Just let us know what the budget is and we’ll find the perfect match.

  60. Mandy C says:

    I would love for them to research baby gear… “for a friend”.

  61. Melissa says:

    My stove is close to biting the dust, too, so I would go for that. Although, I’m sure my husband would have a good time researching his geeky techno toys!

  62. Pretty nifty little idea there.. I’d love for them to research the best computer to buy and printers and such to go with it. Im clueless when it comes to buying computers.

    • Thanks Debbie! There is a sea of computers and printers out there and the task is daunting. We’d be happy to help. Take advantage of the free trial to find exactly what you need.

  63. Hello! We have been pondering E readers in our family so I would use the Consumer Crew to help me pick the correct one so that I get more bang (or BOOM!!!) for my buck! Thanks.

  64. I LOVE to research purchases…it’s right up there with organizing a closet. Heaven! I just got an IPAD and I think it’s cool that I could research APPS. Crazy? That’s what I’d “research” right now.

  65. I’m in the market for a few big purchases- a vacuum, a TV, etc.

  66. A camera or a vacuum. I need a better one of each. Thanks!

  67. We just purchased all new appliances. Would have been nice to not do all the research ourselves! Next purchase (or at least dream one) a new laptop, or a new minivan!

  68. heather f says:

    I enjoy your blog. the exploding oven made me nervous since I’m currently looking for a gas range.

    I’ve had some mini explosions on the bbq grill that about took my eyebrow off though…….

  69. Susan Evans says:

  71. Johanna Mathews says:

    I need some prices researched on smart phones.

  72. I could’ve used this site as we painfully researched and purchased a washer and dryer last week. I always search high and low for the big baby item reviews; double strollers, car seats, etc….

  73. My old computer is making noises like a jet engine taking off and I’m sure it’s time for an upgrade. It boggles my mind trying to dope out what kind of computer to buy and it gives me a migraine just thinking about making that purchase. I’d love to do it before this one bites the dust. I’d love for someone else to do my homework!

  85. allison o. says:

    I would like them to research a sewing machine. Mine died and I need to find a good replacement.

  86. I’d love to know which of the pet vacuums are best, particularly for dogs that shed a lot (she’s not dirty otherwise, just tons of blond hair everywhere!). I’m also curious if they’ve reviewed any of the electric/hybrid cars on the market!

  87. FB fan

  88. I’d like help with an Iphone

  89. Whitney says:

    Vaccum cleaners!

  90. Those large blow up self standing pools that are on sale right now? Do they really stay up? How often do they “pop”? How much water are we talking? I NEED to know!! Thanks!!

    • People online seem to love them. I’ve seen the best prices on Amazon. Make sure that you have a spot to put it that is completely level or you will have problems.

      PS You are looking at 3,000 – 7,000 gallons of water depending on the size you get.

  91. Melissa T. says:

    I would have to say I would like some help with cameras. There are so many choices and styles and prices. Everyone has their own opinions, but I need some help deciding!

  92. I’m in the market for a new vaccuum cleaner, so that’s my vote! And one $50 Target Gift Card, please. :)

  109. I need a camera! For beginners. I want a nice one that takes good quality pictures, but doesn’t take a lifetime to learn how to use it! There are so many out there, and its so hard to know which ones are truly good quality for the price they are.

  110. ADennis says:

  116. Vacumes I would love to see their input, because lets say it I hate buying them and when I do it always seems like I choose the totally wrong one. Hope I win

  117. I would say e-readers. Lot’s to choose from now.

  124. I would love to see some research on fridges as well as washers and dryers. We are going to be first-time home owners soon and the most common appliances we’d have to buy are fridges and washers/dryers. My husband is in the military so we’ve always rented before so we don’t have our own appliances at all.

  125. I have two items; refrigerators and dishwashers. I am going to need to replace both of them and I would like to get the best one for my money. I am tired of being disappointed. Oh, and I would also take a review on vacuum cleaners. I have a whole house one I love but am looking for a vacuum for a second home we have. Thanks for the chance.

  131. Oh gosh.. right now I’d say a laptop… I really need something besides my little netbook! Thanks for the tip, never heard of this site before!

  132. Jill O. says:

    Definitely would have liked to have known about this last week when my dishwasher went out and I needed one ASAP! I think I would like it for any new purchase I need to make, regardless of what it is…definitely appliances though…so many different brands to choose from.

    • Bingo JIll O.! With unlimited research you can use ConsumerCrew for any purchase. Wether it’s a $50 blender or a new car. Hope your new dishwasher is working well. Sorry we weren’t there to help.

  142. I am so sick of spending too much money on stuff that really could be less. I could really use carpet, a fridge and wood floor. I would LOVE to be frugal and enjoy my life more.

    • We hear you Erica. Let us share the load. We’ll do all the heavy lifting and make sure you get the best deals. We know you have better things to do than research refrigerators : )

  143. Connie H says:

    We will be needing a dishwasher. Ours is very old but still works. We have no idea what features are offered now and the energy efficiency. And a reasonably priced laptop. The Consumer Crew would save us alot of time on research for several things.

  144. My dad uses them to research EVERYTHING before we buy it. Honestly, can’t they research sports bras for me? I know they’ve got electronics and stuff on lock, but I really can’t find a good sports bra for the life of me!

  145. Jessica says:

    We are in the market for a new washer and dryer and I’m very confused on what to get!

  146. Amanda K says:

  150. Bryansgyrl says:

    My computer is almost out of memory thanks to all my pictures…I’d like them to research computer or photo storage options for me. Then again our microwave broke the other day and life’s rough without it! LOL!

  151. I’d love to research tablets and the ipad2 thinking about getting one but not sure if the ipad is worth it

    • We get this question all the time. Send us some details on what you want out of a tablet and we will point you in the right direction.

  156. Colleen says:

    I would love Consumer Crew to research embroidery machines. I would love to get one but I am worried about investing in the wrong one.

  157. I’d love for them to research irons for me. I need a new one that will work for both clothes and sewing projects.

    Our friends were telling us they just laid down lamanent wood flooring (from Sams Club). We are looking to replace our Tile but I know nothing about lamanent (I even question my spelling of it). Some example questions: will it dent when you set a heavy item on it for long periods of time (our recliner, with husband nappin in it). Will it warp in the humid weather?

  166. Rachel W says:

    The back-light when out on my computer screen and despite having it replaced, it still goes out after a few min. So, I am in need of a new computer. I love my HP but am thinking Macbook air. I would love to have help figuring out the best option!

    • The Macbook Air is a real show-stopper but not for everyone. If you give the team and idea of what you will use it for, they should be able to point you in the right direction.

  167. I’ve been researching point and shoot cameras so long the ones I first considered probably aren’t even available! Yes, I could use some professional help!

  168. I would research cameras and washing machines.

  169. I am now a twitter follower of them too!

  170. I’d like them to research all the new fancy sewing machines I wish I could buy!

  171. I follow them on twitter.

  173. A new oven! Ours cooks all wonky temps which is sad because I LOVE to bake!

  174. Computer technology – Am I really overpaying for my Macbook, or is it worth it?

  175. I need a new laptop! Would love to find a good deal on one.

  176. I would love to see reviews for wooden outdoor playsets. We will need one for our new home and I can tell it’s not going to be easy to choose.

    I would like to see camera reviewed- specifically underwater cameras. I want to take lots of pictures and not worry if it gets wet, dropped in water, etc.

  183. Rebecca says:

    Dishwashers reviews! I SO need a new dishwasher. The prongs are all rusting off, I have to lean up against the dishwasher ever so lightly with my hip 3 different times during the cycle because there is a short and it stops running, and who knows how long it runs on minute 42.

  184. Son going off to college will need computer, printer, microwave,… would love to know the best deals

  185. I’d really like them to research how to dealing with siblings who are constantly fighting. But I didn’t see that on there so I’ll settle for some dishwasher intel.

  186. A mattress! We’ve been sleeping on the same saggy one for ELEVEN years. My back kills me every morning!

  187. I’m going to go with carseats becasue well I’m always looking at carseats it seems!

    How about the best small camera to put in my purse. Something I can just point and shoot. I don’t want to mess with settings.

  192. tennille says:

    Lately my fridge has been making this metal whirling sound… no one seems to notice it or be bothered by it but me. It could be the fact that I’m pregnant with son #4 or the fact that the fridge is 17 years old, but… oh how I dream to have the luxury of crushed ice in the door! And about 2 months ago our Sunbeam 8 year old microwave decided that it had cooked enough Bacon & wanted payback… so it melted my Bacon cooker & broke the glass microwave tray. I showed it.. I can still cook Bacon on my new bacon cooker without a glass tray, it just doesn’t go around in circles anymore! So… that’s why I need help in the purchases area because the last time we bought an appliance, Sears sales boy sold me a broken hose with a washing machine wrapped around it!

  193. tennille says:

    I liked Consumer Crew on Facebook!

  194. I seriously research the heck out of just about everything I buy (hence the junky couch that STILL hasn’t been replaced). I need a new couch that is going to give me years of service. I need a new lawnmower, and throw a new cooktop in there, too. As long as I don’t have to spend the hours looking for them myself.

  195. i would research car seats, couches, cars, anything i don’t know anything about, which is a lot of things!

  196. An iPad keyboard. My hubby REALLY wants one for Father’s Day but there are so many! He said a foldable one would be great… not real helpful since a ton of them fold! ;)

  201. Strollers! I mean, I’m sure they already have, but I’m tired of trying to find consistent reports across the Internet.

  202. We need a DVD player, reasonably priced, that will last us a few years. Seriously, we have a pretty nice TV but we’re still hooking up our laptop to watch DVD’s. I haven’t bought one because I’ve been so confused by all the reviews on amazon and I got tired of reading about them!

  203. “Liked” Consumer Crew on Facebook!

  204. Following Consumer Crew on Twitter as “arimethia”. Thanks!

  205. I need research on a new camera! :)

  206. I’d like to see research on technology…cameras, ipads, phones, etc.

  207. I liked them on facebook

  208. family room rugs!

  209. A fancy schmancy camera for dummies. I want a DSLR, but I am SO afraid of going off automatic. I would love to know which one is best for beginners

  210. Is this weird?! I want to see which breast pump would be the best…too creepy tmi?!

    • (Camie, I don’t know if you’ll ever come back to see this, but I did a TON of research a couple years ago on breast pumps… I went for the Medela Advanced, where you can do both sides at once. You can even buy cheap avent bottles to hook into it!)

  211. Consumer Crew sounds awesome… I think I would use their research for either a new camera or a new fridge :-) (you know… in case I win the lottery that I don’t play!)

  212. Vacuum cleaners! We are in need of a new one, but I don’t know where to start. I don’t want to spend a fortune, but I’ve heard that most vacuum cleaners are pretty much the same. Spend $100 or $1000 and you’re getting essentially the same thing. It’s frustrating.

  213. We just bought an adorable German Shepard puppy. I’m now having panic attacks over the hair and plan to invest in a new vacumn soon. That research sure would come in handy!

  214. Leigh Anne says:

    I would research cameras. I want one that isn’t too expensive, that takes great pics and can survive being dropped….probably too much to ask, eh? Thanks for the giveaway!

  215. I’d love to have Consumer Crew do the research on some overhead projectors for me. My hubby wants one, and I’d like to surprise him, but I don’t know anything about them.

  216. I would most like to read about research on which brand of refrigerator is best. I really want a 4 door refrigerator but there are sooo many options.

  217. I liked consumer crew on facebook

  218. I would love for them to research sewing machines.

  219. Sherri D says:

    Wow, it looks like Consumer Crew has done most every item I could think of already! Perhaps ovens that are built in as well as their counterparts, stove tops that fit in the counters. Or maybe kitchen counter materials!
    No matter what, thanks for sharing this Consumer Crew! I am sure I will use it soon! And thanks for having such a wonderful give-a-way!

    • Thanks for the kind words Sherri. Remember that the results of each Product Check you submit are completely personalized to your preferences. The examples on the site are just to give you an idea. We love you energy and are excited to be working with you in the future.

  220. Refrigerators!! There are SO MANY options.

  221. I need them to help me find a new dishwasher. :)

  222. Printer…a real good printer for digital art.

  223. Emily O. says:

    Current beloved car has 212,000+ miles on it, so should probably start researching fuel-efficient cars in the next 6 months or so.

  224. Karen Eggleston says:

    I need a new fridge.

  225. I want a new DSLR and can’t decide which one to buy! I need help!

  226. Wow..what to choose first?
    I really need a lawn mower..badly! One that leaves the clippings behind as a mulch type thing.

    And I really want a new sewing machine! I’ve got a very old Singer.. ( Cast Iron) that only goes back and zig zag and it sure would be nice to sew some knits!

    I’ll have to do some research! .. I need help with both of those items.

  227. Daughter needs a vacuum — Target gift card would go toward that!

  228. Melissa says:

  230. Sergers, I would reserch sergers because I don’t know much about new ones and someday, I want to buy a good one.

  231. I really want a wireless printer and need someone to tell me which is the best one to buy so that is what I would want consumer review to review for me :)

  232. I liked Consumer Crew on FB

  233. Kristin M. says:

    I would love for them to find me the best floor sweeper. Dog hair is taking over my life!!

  234. Karen Jerread says:

  237. I would research a new washer and dryer. Both were given to us and we are in need of something better now that we have two kids. Our dryer currently takes over an hour to dry clothes. Makes for a really long day!

  238. I like Consumer Crew on facebook.

  239. I also follow Consumer Crew on Twitter

  242. Angelina says:

    Sergers as someone else said! I have been researching them for about 2mths now and between cost and what each one can do I am at a loss!!

  243. I think I would go for sergers, as well. I AM thinking about buying one, so it would be a great help!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  244. I would purchase the Canon Rebal T2i for sure, I’ve wanted one for so long. Also I need a new Refrigerator and Washer/Dryer combo.

  245. mary norman says:

    wow, i didnt know about this site. it sounds awesome. I need to pick out a new phone and have no idea which one to choose

  246. Raechel says:

    I agree with some of the previous posts about help finding a serger! Crossing my fingers!

  247. Muireann says:

    Sewing machines and tents/camping equipment. This would keep me – and my husband – happy all summer! Thanks for the chance to win.

  248. I would like to purchase a pressure canner, so that would be nice to review.

  249. I would love to have them research washers and dryers for me! So many to choose from and they all seem so flashy!

  250. I would have to say oven or dishwasher… We really need new ones sooner rather than later.

  251. I’d love a serger!!!!

  252. A better front-loader than I have. It stinks. Literally. And cameras. And cars. And playground sets for the kiddos. I have lots of needs, apparently.

  253. I need a serger but doesn’t help that I don’t know which one to buy.

  254. Courtney says:

    I think I would like them to research a car for me, I’m in the market.

    • Sedans, Vans, & Crossovers…OH MY! Eventually you will need to sit behind the wheel and decide which one you like the best. BUT I’m sure we can help point you in the right direction.

  255. Cameras-too many features!

  256. Allison says:

    Sewing machines. I need a sturdy one!

  257. I would love to get a new stove. I think mine is like 20 plus years old – original to the house. Time for something a little more with the times.

  258. Our dishwasher is on it’s last leg I’m afraid. This would be great for them to review! Thanks for the chance to win!

  259. I’d love some help finding a good-quality, inexpensive camera lens that will allow me to take more professional pictures without the professional price tag!

  266. Amanda Morrison says:
