Flying is an obvious one for earning points, although unless you’re flying regularly, you’re not going to earn that many points from being up in the air.
One part of flying a regular airline is status, which helps you earn more points when you fly. Generally speaking, Air New Zealand are relatively easy to earn status with, particularly if you fly with them or one of their partners regularly, and have a credit card that allows you to earn Status Points on everyday spend.
Air New Zealand also offer the Shairpoints service, whereby you can combine Airpoints Dollars into one Shairpoints account to get to your next redemption faster. You can invite up to four people to join your Shairpoints account and you control who spends the shared Airpoints Dollars from your group. Note there are some restrictions, and you cannot transfer Status Points.
As said when talking about airline partnerships, you can also earn points when flying with the partner airlines of Air New Zealand. Status Points can be earned on all Star Alliance partners too.
