Guide to earning Airpoints Dollars via Airpoints Mall

This is a quick overview of Airpoints Mall for those who aren’t familiar with the concept or the key retailers in it or want a refresher. We cover off the basics to help you earn more Airpoints Dollars.

Online malls work by ensuring you log in with your frequent flyer program credentials before then being referred out (with a click) once logged in to make a transaction over on the retailer’s website.

The Air New Zealand Airpoints Mall is no different, and it is New Zealand’s largest, with around 115 retailers.

You can find it at airnewzealand.co.nz/airpoints-mall.

Other online shopping portals like Qantas Shopping, Velocity eStoreKrisFlyer SpreeAsia Miles iShop and Cashrewards also carry some of the same retailers and are key ways to earn points or cashback from online purchases.

How to earn Airpoints Dollars with Airpoints Mall

The main way to enter the shopping portal is to head to the Airpoints Mall website on a desktop, laptop or tablet.

One advantage of Airpoints is that they have mobile-optimised their portal. This makes it around twice as fast to get into the online store when using your mobile, which is pretty handy.

The Airpoints Mall works by tracking the purchases you make at participating retailers, so it can credit you with Airpoints Dollars for each dollar you spend.

You’ll earn an average of 1-3% back on your spend in the form of Airpoints Dollars.

1. To start, head to the Airpoints Mall home page and log in to your Airpoints account.

3. Complete your purchase on the retailer’s website. Do not visit other websites during this time, or your purchase might not track.

4. When you have checked out, that’s it! Sit tight and wait for the points to credit. You will usually receive an email like the one below showing that the tracking was successful:

Make sure you confirm the Airpoints Dollar earn at the Airpoints Mall directly, as the earn rate can go up if there is a special. Each store will also have their own Terms and Conditions, in addition to the overall Airpoints Mall Terms and Conditions.

Vouchers and Special Offers

The Airpoints Mall provides a list of vouchers that can be used to save money at some of the different retailers. Be wary using promo codes not provided on this page, as this could preclude any Airpoints Dollars earn due to the way the affiliate arrangements work between Airpoints and the retailers.

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 those retailers that accept American Express, the American Express Airpoints Platinum will see you earn 1 Airpoints Dollar for every $59 spent.

For example, if you make a purchase for $100 (excl GST and delivery) at an Airpoints Mall retailer that has an earn rate of 3 Airpoints Dollar for every NZ$100 you spend, using your American Express Airpoints Platinum will see you earn 4.69 Airpoints Dollars for that spend.

For those retailers only accepting Visa or Mastercard, the Westpac Airpoints World Mastercard will see you earn 1 Airpoints Dollar for every $65 spent.

You can see the full range of Airpoints earning cards in our cards table.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for points earned through Qantas Shopping to credit?

It will usually take a few weeks to a few months for Airpoints Dollars to credit from online shopping. This is to ensure that changes aren’t made to the transaction, such as cancellations and refunds, which would otherwise cancel out your reward. However from my experience, they are far quicker than any other cashback or points mall that I have used.

How can I check if my purchase was successfully tracked on Airpoints Mall?

Your tracked purchases should be viewable within your Airpoints Mall account within 2-7 days of completion. You will also receive an email. If it’s still not there after two weeks, contact the Airpoints Mall team.

Can I get both Airpoints Dollars from the Airpoints Mall and a cashback offer?

No, both these rewards use the last click-through to track a transaction. This means you can’t double-dip with both Airpoints Dollars and cashback. The last click will dictate what reward you get.

Summing up

The Airpoints Mall is an easy to use option if you’re looking to earn more Airpoints Dollars from your general spending — so make sure to get across the full list of partners on the Airpoints Mall portal to maximise your points earning potential.
