  • Airpoints Dollars can expire
    Airpoints Dollars are valid for 4-5 years. Each year, on your anniversary of joining Airpoints, any Airpoints Dollars earned more than four years earlier will expire. Every time you use Airpoints Dollars, the oldest ones are used first, keeping the Airpoints Dollars due to expire to a minimum.

Also ensure that your communication preferences allow us to send you account information and that way you will be updated regularly about your Airpoints Dollar balance.

    Your Airpoints Dollars will not expire while you retain Elite or Gold status. Should you move below Gold status, you will have until your next anniversary of joining to use any Airpoints Dollars that would have otherwise expired. If your next anniversary falls within two months of you moving below Gold status you will have two months to utilise these Airpoints Dollars.

    When you have a selected Airpoints earning credit card your Airpoints Dollars will also never expire as long as you hold that card.
  • If your Airpoints card goes missing we can replace it
    If you need a replacement Airpoints membership card, you can get one for NZ$25 or 25 Airpoints Dollars. The cost is waived for Airpoints Silver, Gold and Elite members. If you'd like a replacement card, call the Contact Centre
