Amazon vs. Walmart

By: Robert Grosshandler | December 09, 2021

As you’ve probably noticed, Amazon is no longer paying us commissions when you shop there. We had been growing that revenue stream quite nicely, and my guess is that they decided they didn’t need us any longer. I’m very disappointed, but wasn’t surprised, since they aren’t doing business with folks like Rakuten anymore, either. It’ll … Continue reading Amazon vs. Walmart

November Amazon Results / Giving Reminder

By: Robert Grosshandler | December 03, 2020

This is quicker than a normal recap of results because Amazon is the gorilla we want to make sure you don’t forget (at least as far as it affects iConsumer and your stock).

September Amazon Results

By: Robert Grosshandler | October 11, 2019

As I mentioned in an earlier post on the transition to 100% stock back, Amazon is a bit of the canary in the coal mine. Because we can’t reward our members directly when they shop at Amazon, it’s a bit of a tough bird. When a member chooses to shop at Amazon via iConsumer, it’s … Continue reading September Amazon Results

You are the “i” in iConsumer

By: Kim Logan | September 10, 2018

 Invested. Involved. Informed.   I was asked recently what the “i” in iConsumer stood for and at first I didn’t have a clue.  Coming from a previous site with an “i” in the name ( and the prevalence of Apple branded “i” gadgets and services, it seemed natural to me that our site would be “iConsumer”.  But … Continue reading You are the “i” in iConsumer

Amazon Prime Day and our Stock Price

By: Robert Grosshandler | July 05, 2018

Amazon Prime Day Amazon has very special sales happening July 16.  You can shop at Amazon via iConsumer.  We make great money when you do (in part because Amazon doesn’t allow us to share what they pay us with you).
