Thanks for being a Consumer NZ member.

We’re not-for-profit and not funded by government; we rely on memberships like yours to fund our work.

As a paying member, you’re supporting us to put products and services to the test, to see if claims stack up. We also investigate consumer issues and campaign for a fairer landscape.

There’s a lot in it for you too. Here’s a quick reminder of your membership benefits:

  • Expert advice on what to buy and what to ask
    It’s good to know what to look for and what questions to ask, especially when it comes to expensive purchases. We’ve got heaps of expert advice on everything from cars to insurance.

  • See our recommended products, based on independent product tests
    We employ rigorous testing methodologies and commission independent laboratories to test products. Only our members can access the results of all our product tests online.

  • Contact our Advice Line for one-on-one, expert support
    If you have a question, or if you’re having a problem with a business or retailer and you’d like our help, as a paying member you can call or email our Advice Line and get expert advice.

  • There for you every step of the way
    We look at more issues than you might think. Our research and testing covers a wide range of areas, from baby and child products to building and renovation, mortgages to insurance and much more. We’ve got you covered.
