We are Australia's leading consumer organisation with over 160,000 members.
Set up by consumers for consumers, CHOICE is the consumer advocate that provides Australians with information and advice, free from commercial bias.
As vital today as when we were founded in 1959, CHOICE continues to fight for consumers and uncover the truth.
By mobilising Australia’s largest and loudest consumer movement, CHOICE fights to hold industry and government accountable and achieve real change on the issues that matter most.
CHOICE doesn't accept advertising or sponsorship. This means we can uncover the truth about everyday consumer issues and provide practical advice to help consumers cut through the crap.
CHOICE is Australia's largest source of expert reviews. Based on unbiased analysis and rigorous testing, we help consumers compare products and services and select what’s best for them.
CHOICE sounded an ominous note in its in-depth report, “Unemployment: A Survival Guide For Your Daughter, Your Son… Or Yourself.” As a further sign of troubled times, we featured “Elusive Sleep: What To Do About Insomnia.” “Is marriage going out of fashion?” we asked. “While costs have escalated, tradition has remained the same – it’s the bride’s day and her parents must pay… A case of here comes the bride and there goes $12,000.” ACA got its skates on: “In the US, the rollerskating craze has reached such proportions that it has glossy magazines. Australia is heading into a similar boom. Rinks have multiplied from a handful to well over a hundred.” We surveyed supermarket prices. “You may be able to save up to 20% at the checkout. We surveyed prices at 66 supermarkets around Australia… we hope this will be an annual survey of grocery prices in Australian supermarkets.” In a comparison between regions, Sydney supermarkets emerged the cheapest. First-home buyers were finding it tough. “This was particularly true in Sydney last year when middle-income homes were rising by $1000 a month,” we wrote in a special two-part report.
