What is it?

Consumer.org.nz is packed with information. There are thousands of pages and we’re always adding more, but unless you have a lot of spare time on your hands you’re unlikely to have any chance of wading through it all.

We’ve made it our mission to ensure you get the information you need. For example, you might know to check out our heat pump or woodburner comparisons if you’re thinking about making your home warmer. We want to make sure you also know about all the other information we have about home heating, such as what you can expect to pay for different types of firewood and which energy company topped our satisfaction survey.

That‘s where On My Radar comes in. It’s an email that will land in your inbox every fortnight with personalised content recommendations.

Say you’ve got a new baby on the way, you can let us know you’re interested in baby products. Then we’ll make sure you know about our test results for products like change tables and portable cots and articles on baby carriers and toddler milk. Or say you are thinking of upgrading your washing machine – just tell us and we will let you know when our washing machine test results are updated, which laundry detergent gets the best results or what brand shined in our reliability survey. You control the information you receive by letting us know what you want to read about.

How it works

Without getting into all the tricky data stuff going on behind the scenes, On My Radar works by taking the categories, topics and products we think you’re interested in and identifying more information you might like to read about.

The result is a fortnightly email packed with content that is likely to be relevant to you.
