Consumer NZ is asking for examples of misleading supermarket pricing and promotions in order to push for an investigation by the Commerce Commission. The organization has received 160 complaints regarding dodgy specials, and despite putting supermarkets on notice earlier, the issues have not been resolved. Consumer NZ believes that unfair pricing practices are contributing to the ongoing cost of living crisis. They are urging New Zealanders to submit their examples to strengthen their case. Examples of dodgy specials include misleading multibuys, specials that are more expensive than the regular price, mismatched pricing, paying for packaging, and pricing that is difficult to understand. Consumer NZ encourages individuals to hold supermarkets accountable for pricing mistakes, regardless of the amount involved. The deadline for submitting examples is June 30.
