Consumer Reports magazine charges its subscribers for the same information online that they put in the mag. I think there may be additional info too, but I don't know since I won't pay. They seem to be happy with their arrangement, but I can't say whether they make any money at it. It seems foolish to me. I'd rather pay $2 more per year for the mag (if they'd charge everybody) and have bonus online access.
