Guide to earning Airpoints Dollars with Oaks Hotels & Resorts
Oaks Hotels & Resorts have a large number of properties across Australia. They have two properties in New Zealand, both located in Queenstown.
The group are partnered with the Airpoints program to offer members 20 Airpoints Dollars for every eligible stay.
An ‘eligible stay’ means a booking made direct with Oaks online.
You must quote your name and Airpoints membership number when booking, and produce your Airpoints card upon check-in.
Your Airpoints Dollars should appear in your account within three months of the stay being made.
MyOaks Discount, or Airpoints Dollars?
You cannot stack Airpoints Dollars earn with the 10% ‘MyOaks’ benefit.
This means that you should only opt to earn Airpoints Dollars on bookings where you would not receive a discount of more than $20 NZD when using the MYOAKS promo code.
Otherwise, I would recommend choosing the up-front discount. Remember, you can always top up your Airpoints account with an Air New Zealand Airpoints Mastercard if you’re ever short of a redemption.
Oaks Hotels & Resorts accept most major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Diners) with no transaction fees when booking online. However you will incur a 1.5% transaction fee if settling the bill at the hotel.
If you’re looking to maximise your Airpoints Dollars earn, the card with the highest earn rate that you can use with this hotel group at home in New Zealand is the American Express Airpoints Platinum, where you’ll take home 1 Airpoints Dollar for every $59 spent.
However if you’re booking a stay at an Aussie property and will need to pay in AUD, the Westpac Airpoints World Mastercard will see you earn a market leading 1 Airpoints Dollar for every $50 NZD equivalent spend – partial compensation for the foreign currency fee.
