Very nice!

Anyone booked this? Just wondering if the tripleSP show up during the booking or if it's only after you've booked them they show up. There is a section in the Air NZ account that shows potential and bonus earnings. Wondering if it shows up there after the booking?

Think it's for Aussies. Fair enough I guess, you don't have the credit card options. Never seen this response to the Qantas and VA DSC offers before but it makes sense. They're taking all the forward bookings!
Previous ones have been targetted - if you didn't get the email then you won't get any bonus SP.

The bonus does not show up during booking, but does show up in the potential earnings for future flights box when logged in.

Hi, Adele here (I wrote the TCM blog post linked here a few posts back).I booked CHC-AKL-ADL for next week (in line with the Touch of Gold anniversary date, I literally have a 2 day window to use the offer!), and the 'bonus' of 302 Status Points is showing up below the standard 151. This will get me over the line (just) for the 450 I need by 6th March.

FYI, a new Air NZ Triple Status Points promo has been released: Air New Zealand launches new Triple Status Points offer

As with the previous promotion, this offer looks to be targetted to those who received the email, and is for residents of Australia and NZ.

Also a quick update on the TSP flights I took last month, after leveraging the previous promotion. The TPSs credited whilst I was in the air (wow!) and I can confirm that a domestic sector I booked as part of a trans-Tasman itinerary (CHC-AKL) also credited with TPSs.

I was recently having a look at Air NZ's Star Alliance award chart.

Is Airpoints the only frequent flyer program with a distance-based award chart to use kilometres (not miles) to calculate the distance? Quite cheeky IMHO!

Ha! Yes, need to have the mileage calculator up in another tab. Although NZ - Asia and US are all pretty much in the 1300 and 1600 bands for business so easy to remember. Asia to Europe Singapore falls into the 1600 band although most of Asia - EU 1300 (was 1215).
Aussie - SIN/TPE in the 1000 bracket. Perth exceptions.

Whilst I think the triple SP is a great idea for Aussie it's really the APD earn which will be limiting although I find the reverse is true with Qantas/VA, earning from flying seems slow compared to credit card earn. I suspect most kiwis that earn APD via the cc and fly infrequently probably aren't aware of the partner award chart and use APD to fly NZ.
