New Point Hacks NZ resource – credit card master comparison table for points collectors

One of the hardest things to get your head around when looking at rewards and frequent flyer credit cards is an overview of the credit cards that are out there on the market and how many points they will actually earn when you use them.

We’ve spent the time to compile this master resource with all the key data to help with comparing the relative features of the various rewards cards in the market in New Zealand.

This is what is covered in the table:

  • Issuing bank and card or account on offer
  • Card types (American Express, Visa, MasterCard) – and their different flavours, e.g. Visa Prestige or World MasterCard
  • Standard annual fees
  • Effective earn rates per $ – factoring in transfer rates to partner programs and earn rate on the card
  • The full set of frequent flyer or hotel program transfer partners for each card
  • Bonus point categories on spend – e.g overseas transactions, with airlines
  • Airline lounge access benefits – whether any are offered

What it doesn’t include:

  • Current bonus or sign up offers – points or discounted annual fees

If you have ideas for any more comparison points that are essentials, add a comment and I’ll get them added in.

We hope you find it useful!
