I don’t think there is a maximum amount of status points you can earn via an Airpoints credit cards but to start getting the ‘Elite Threshold Gifts’ on Air NZ you must earn at least 1,400 Status Points on Air New Zealand travel. Elite Threshold Gifts come into play when you get to 3,000, 5,000 and 7,500 Status Points.
Threshold Gifts include:
- An overnight stay at one of Air NZ’s hotel partners in New Zealand and Australia
- A six-course tasting menu with matching wines at Clooney, one of Auckland’s leading degustation restaurants
- An additional long haul Recognition Upgrade
- A four-course dining experience at Peter Gordon’s The Providores and Tapa Room in Marylebone High Street, London
