First annual fee-free Airpoints card


American Express and Air New Zealand launch first annual fee-free Airpoints card

1 July 2014 - American Express and Air New Zealand have joined forces to launch the Air New Zealand American Express Card, where Card Members pay no upfront fees and can earn Airpoints Dollars on everyday spending.

The Air New Zealand American Express Card is designed with New Zealanders who love to travel in mind, and is a first in market with no annual card fees, membership or joining fees. Card Members can earn Airpoints Dollars simply by using the card.

Barclay Hancock, American Express Vice President Consumer Products and Partnerships, said its new co-branded card with Air New Zealand Airpoints provided consumers with an easy way to pay for everyday goods and services, while earning Airpoints Dollars and enjoying the benefits of an American Express credit card.

"Every time a Card Member spends on their card they're earning Airpoints towards their next holiday or purchase at the Air New Zealand Airpoints store. The weekly grocery shop, household bills, and online shopping can all earn Airpoints Dollars to get Card Members on a flight sooner. In addition, Card Members will have access to the full range of American Express benefits such as 24/7 customer service, our Online Fraud Protection Guarantee and Emergency Card Replacement," said Barclay.

Air New Zealand General Manager Customer Value Hamish Rumbold said: "With more than 1.5 million Airpoints members, we know New Zealanders love earning Airpoints Dollars, so the ability to earn on everyday purchases without having to pay an annual card fee will be welcomed by our members, and will help Kiwis to reap the rewards of the Airpoints programme even sooner."
