You can gift a reward (excluding companion tickets) to anyone living in the same household as you, even if they're not an Airpoints™ member.
If you're a Gold or Gold Elite member you can also choose people outside your own household to gift rewards to. See the bottom of this page for more information.
You must always gift a whole reward - in other words, you can't pay for part of a gift with Airpoints Dollars™ and the rest with cash.
How to Gift Airpoints Rewards to Household Members
First, set up a Member's Gifting Register. To do this, login to myairnz (your new-look personal homepage), and click on Gifting Register under myProfile. If you were previously registered for 'My Account', your login details will work in myairnz. If you're not already registered register now.
You can add anyone who lives at the same address as you to your Gifting Register. There's no fee for adding a household member to your register if that person is already an Airpoints member. However, if they're not an Airpoints member, a service fee of 25 or $25 per person will apply.
A giftee can be on more than one Airpoints member's Gifting Register. Giftees can only be gifted Airpoints rewards - they cannot earn or use Airpoints Dollars through the member's account.
Once you have added your giftees to your Gifting Register, you can choose who you would like to gift flight rewards to as part of the online booking process. While making a booking simply select the required Giftee from the dropdown list on the travellers details page. Ensure you select your Giftee and make the booking in their name.
Gift Recipients - Gold Elite and Gold
In addition to the household gifting rules, Gold Elite and Gold members have an exclusive opportunity to gift rewards to nominated friends or family members each year. These people do not have to live in the same household or be Airpoints members. Gold Elite members are able to nominate an additional four people, and Gold members an additional two people. To register your giftees, login to myairnz, and choose Gold or Gold Elite Giftees under myProfile.
Your nominations will remain valid until your next anniversary of reaching Gold Elite/Gold status. At that time, you can either renew your nominees for the following year, or choose new people to gift to.
