    Have your favorite businesses been naughty or nice this year?

    Consumer Reports has issued its sixth annual "Naughty & Nice" list for 2015, ranking the "not-so-friendly and consumer-friendly policies" of companies where you spend your hard-earned dollars.

    The list is based on input from Consumer Reports experts, and according to a company press release, is "neither an endorsement nor criticism of an overall company."

    "This year, we took companies to the woodshed for gouging, annoying fees, and sneaky marketing practices," the company explained in a news release posted online Monday. "Conversely, we lauded others for transparency, generosity, and stand-up behavior that improves and enhances health, safety, and the overall quality of life."
