Welcome to the Consumerism Commentary Store!
Have you registered for an account on Consumerism Commentary? If you have, and you have logged in, you can earn points for leaving substantial comments on recent articles. (Comments consisting of only, “Great post!” or “I agree with you!” will not earn points, for example.) Each day you visit Consumerism Commentary, you earn points for reading an article. We’ll be unveiling some new features soon that allow you to participate more in the Consumerism Commentary community, and these will earn points as well.
Note: all users must comment at least every 60 days to maintain a user account on Consumerism Commentary. Accounts that have been inactive for 60 days will be deleted.
The points you earn can be used to buy Amazon.com gift cards, to thank you for being regular contributors.
View the list of products and scroll down to place your order. I’m looking forward to implementing some changes to make this process easier for those who want to purchase products using points, but for now, this will get the job done. Keep in mind that since this is not automated, the product you order may no longer be available. I’ll update the quantities available as often as possible. Below the list of products there is a form for ordering the items using your points. Clicking the links in the table will bring you to the product’s Amazon.com page for more information.
I’ll be periodically adding more products to the store. If you have ideas for additional items, particularly if you are an author or publisher, please contact me.

Use the form below to send a request to buy a product. Your points will be deducted when the product is shipped. We hope to have this automated in the future.
