Hoax phone calls

Richard from Cambridge

Beware of lots of hoax calls coming from "Visa Credit Card Department" and "Spark". Don't be taken in, just hang up.

Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

NZ Compare

Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

Find out more at NZ Compare or call the team on 0508 226672

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)

3 Tips To Sleep Better.

Marketing Manager from Beds 4 U Matamata

Sleep helps our bodies function properly, it balances our moods, and even helps in the healing of illnesses and injuries. While some individuals have no trouble going asleep at night, others find it difficult. Those who suffer from chronic insomnia or who have difficulty falling asleep sometimes may benefit from the following exercise.

Yoga Nidra
Most people already know that yoga and meditation promote serenity and awareness, but many are unaware that they can also encourage a healthy sleep pattern. Yoga nidra, also known as yogic sleep, is a type of guided meditation that is done while laying still in savasana or similar comfortable reclined position.

Revamp Your Bed
Research proves sleeping on a mattress that is too soft or too firm can lead to muscular discomfort, causing wakefulness during the night. Using an old pillow or one that is the wrong firmness or shape for your preferred sleep position can have a similar effect. If you find that you cannot get comfortable in your bed or wake up often throughout the night, replacing your pillow or mattress could help.

Clean Your Bedroom
Because there is a link between a crowded bedroom and a cluttered mind, it stands to reason that sleeping in a tidy bedroom can enhance sleep and minimize racing thoughts. Organizing and tidying your room can help you relax at the end of the day to snuggle into a beautifully made bed.
