If you travel often, be it for business or holiday, the Global Plus Credit Card can help you shave some of the cost of your trips. The rewards that are accumulated are converted into Air New Zealand Airpoints Dollars. Use these Airpoints dollars to obtain free or discounted airfares the next time you fly.
How to Spend Your Airpoints Dollars
It couldn’t be simpler to accumulate and spend your Air New Zealand Airpoints Dollars. In fact, you will accumulate these reward points without even having to think about it.
First, you need to save up your Airpoints dollars. You will get Airpoints each time you use your Global Plus credit card to pay for a qualifying flight on Air New Zealand or one of their partners, stay at a participating hotel, or hire car with an affiliated partner. Cardholders can also convert Fly Buys to Airpoints Dollars and receive Airpoints just for taking out a Global Plus home loan. But don’t forget, that even everyday purchases of items like groceries and petrol will also earn you Airpoints Dollars, fast.
Next, decide where your next holiday or business trip will be. Make a note of the cost. Check your monthly statement to see how many points you have. This should give you a good idea if you’ll get a free flight and accommodation, or a discount.
Finally, book your trip and pay with your Global Plus credit card. When you book your trip, use your accumulated Air New Zealand Airpoints Dollars to purchase your flight and accommodation. If you’ve saved up enough points, you will be able to fly for free, have free accommodation, and even sightsee in a free rental car. At the very least, you’ll receive a substantial discount and you can instead use that money to have some extra fun with while on holiday.
