Consumer invites Kiwis to join in Christmas Twitter chat


Media release: Consumer NZ aims to take the silly out of the season, inviting Kiwis to join in Christmas themed Twitter chat


Consumer NZ is on a mission to take the silly out of the season for consumers this year. Next week it is inviting Kiwis to share Christmas shopping tips on a Twitter chat.

During the chat - on Tuesday 11 December between 1.00pm and 2.00pm - Consumer will also share key advice for smart Christmas shopping.
Consumer NZ Editor in Chief David Naulls says Christmas is a peak time for spending so it pays for shoppers to be aware of their rights under the Fair Trading and Consumer Guarantees Acts.

"With all the pre-Christmas and post-Christmas sales putting extra pressure to spend more on gifts, food and drink, a bit of planning and preparation will mean a more relaxing season with a minimum of silliness," says Naulls.
"In this Twitter chat, we are keen to hear Kiwis' stories of Christmas shopping - the good and the bad - and their tips and tricks for reducing stress at this time of year."

Tweeters who would like to participate can follow Consumer NZ via the handle @consumernz (www.twitter.com/consumernz). Chat will be tracked using the hash tag #ConsumerChat.
