Thinking of booking one way? For flights ex-New Zealand, you will earn 3,000 bonus Points for Economy and 6,000 bonus Points for Business Class. Note that you will not earn any bonus points for any separate one-way leg you book ex-Australia to New Zealand.

- Book an eligible flight during the promotion period—I suggest clicking through the Cashrewards website to earn 0.7-1% cashback. I do not recommend using any discount codes as this may invalidate the promotion
