Pretty much anything these days can earn you points. I have no doubt there are a number of things in your everyday life that could and should be earning you points.
Make sure you fuel up at Z and you’ve got yourself some sweet Fly Buys or Airpoints candy. If you’re renovating your house, head to Mitre 10, and again, your Airpoints points balance will smile.
Book your airport transfer with Blacklane, and boom- see that Asia Miles balance go up.
Power bills? Yep- Mercury has you covered for Airpoints.
Like wine? You’re in luck, pick up a bottle at New World or Henry’s and boost your Airpoints balance even further.
Want to do some online shopping through some of the most popular stores, like The Iconic, Apple or Kogan? Air New Zealand, Virgin and Qantas have online malls you can shop through that will crank those point balances even more.
Travelling? Of course you are- that’s why you’re trying to earn more points. Get that hire car through Hertz, Thrifty or Europcar and you’ve got some Velocity points. Want Airpoints or Qantas points? No problem- just use Avis or Budget instead.
Almost every hotel chain will let earn you Airpoints – whether it’s by booking with the hotel direct, or booking through Air New Zealand’s Expedia portal.
Everyday spending, such utilities and insurance can all earn as well. Take a look at the Airpoints site to see the full range of partners.
Keep in mind that just because something earns you points doesn’t make it a better product – always do your due diligence to make sure you’re not being charged more money for the privilege of earning those extra rewards.
