Consumerist Tipster

Consumerist Tipster


The Tipster app provides a free, fun, and simple way to tell the editors of Consumerist.com about any scams, rip-offs, shoddy products, hot deals, or freebies you’ve come across.

Let’s say you order a pacifier that arrives in a box the size of Rhode Island, are served a burger at a popular fast food chain that looks inedible, or spot a retailer’s sign that says something really ridiculous. That’s the sort of stuff The Consumerist wants to know about.

Use the Tipster app to snap a quick picture of the offending item, write up your comment, and submit to The Consumerist. We just may blog about it on our site!

The Consumerist empowers consumers by informing and entertaining them about the top consumer issues of the day. We are a leading online resource for consumer-driven advice about dealing with everything from non-existent customer service to onerous cell-phone contracts to ever-shrinking (and ever-more-expensive) grocery products. The Consumerist is published by Consumer Media LLC, a not-for-profit subsidiary of Consumers Union, and takes no outside advertising.

Doesn't work. At all. Keeps giving me a communication error, even though other apps can communicate just fine via wifi or 4G.
