And we know a great buy—or a rip-off!—when we see one because we've been professional money and shopping experts for two decades. In every episode we share the secrets to shopping smarter for everything—from clothing and cosmetics to cars and credit cards (and other products that don't start with a "c"!). We also keep you up to date on all of the consumer news you need to know.
