Online Malls work by making you log in with your account details before then being referred out (with a click) once logged in to make a transaction over on the retailer’s website.
The Airpoints Mall is no different, and it is New Zealand’s largest, with over 160 retailers. This is an overview of the Airpoints Mall for those who aren’t familiar with the concept or the retailers in it, or want a refresher.
The Airpoints Mall can be found at: https://airpoints-mall.co.nz.
Their website is also mobile optimised, which makes it easy to shop on the go.
The Airpoints Mall have prepared a ‘how to use’ video and guide and it’s helpful to watch and read for first time users. Their FAQ page is also helpful, and clarifies some questions, such as whether you need to have a New Zealand address tied to your Airpoints account (you do), and how to make sure cookies on your computer are working properly (they need to be allowed and not blocked so Airpoints Mall can track your purchases and award you Airpoints Dollars for your spend).
The standard earn rate for retailers at the Airpoints Mall is 1 Airpoints Dollar earned per 100 dollars (NZ) spent – so an effective return of 1% on your online shopping.
Here’s the full list of retailers – we’ll update the list and re-promote this guide if any good bonuses come along.

How to maximise your Airpoints Dollars earn
The best way to maximise the number of Airpoints Dollars you earn through the Airpoints Mall is to use an Airpoints earning credit card. So not only will you get Airpoints Dollars for shopping through the Airpoints Mall but you also get the Airpoints Dollars from your credit card spend.
For example, say you have the Airpoints Platinum American Express, you can pick up 1 Airpoints Dollar for every NZ$59 spent.
And then for the Westpac World Airpoints credit card, you’ll earn 1 Airpoints Dollar for every NZ$65 you spend, or 1 Airpoints Dollar for every NZ$50 equivalent spend in a foreign currency.
If you make a purchase for $100 (excl GST and delivery) at an Airpoints Mall retailer that has an earn rate of 1 Airpoints Dollar for every NZ$100 you spend, and your purchase is from a retailer that charges in foreign currency, using your Westpac World Airpoints credit card will see you earn 3 Airpoints Dollars for that spend.
