If you’ve previously been a member, make sure you log in before choosing a special offer.

Why join Consumer?

By becoming a member, you’ll get full access to all the in-depth product testing we’re renowned for, including:

  • what type of heater will suit your home best
  • which electric blankets or throws keep you toasty
  • which appliances go the distance

And some products and services you might not know we’ve looked at, such as:

  • which streaming services will see you through the winter months?
  • are cold and flu remedies just expensive placebos?
  • what is the average firewood price in your area?

By becoming a member, you get access to hundreds of articles and tests to help keep you warm and informed this winter. You can also use our advice line for support for any consumer-related issue you’re facing by calling 0800 CONSUMER (0800 266 786), or by emailing info@consumer.org.nz.

Where does your money go?

Your membership also funds our advocacy work to improve the lives of all New Zealanders. This year alone, we've played a prominent role in:

  • getting multiple banks to remove fees for using another bank’s ATMs
  • pressing retailers to extend or remove mean expiry dates on gift cards
  • getting pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson to test its sunscreens to the joint Australia and New Zealand standard
  • making the Takata airbag recall mandatory in New Zealand
