Americans are saving more and spending less. A government
report issued in January 2009 showed that the consumer

other party. Those who are ranked below a certain benchmark
will be put on probation and temporarily barred from using
AbsoluteBuyer.com’s services. Such policies help ensure the
integrity of AbsoluteBuyer.com and those who use the site.
