Top Tips for Patriotic Purchasing

06 Jul Top Tips for Patriotic Purchasing

78% of Americans prefer to buy American-made products according to Consumer Reports. But how do you know what says “Made in the U.S.A.” is the real deal? Here are 3 ways to ensure you’re buying products approved by Uncle Sam.

Old Glory or an American map doesn’t necessarily mean something is 100% American-made. FTC guidelines state a product must be at least 75% U.S.A-sourced to be “Made in U.S.A.” legit.

Assembled in the U.S. with overseas parts?
Made with U.S. parts and assembled elsewhere?
Close but no cigar. The label must clearly state the product is assembled here with U.S.-manufactured parts to merit “100% Made in the U.S.A.”

Forget the scams.

If you’re sold on America, ensure that your hard-earned bucks are really buying American.
