I have quite a few Airpoints accrued. Should I be quickly spending them or risk losing them if Air NZ devalue them or cancel them?October 26, 2020 at 3:39 pm NZDT #6170KiwimacParticipant
That is a hard question. I lost Silver status just before they decided to allow people to keep their status going pro tem – wife got to keep hers!
The way things are going I would not be surprised if travel normality to years to come back, rather than months. If you have a use for them other than as flights then I would seriously consider it.October 27, 2020 at 2:04 pm NZDT #6236Adam JobbinsKeymaster
I think NZ is in a much better position – but I redeemed almost all of my VA points back in March (before VA went into administration) and am glad I did.October 28, 2020 at 8:01 am NZDT #6238Steve BiddleKeymaster
It depends what you use APD for – there are a myriad of opportunies for using APD, and a significant number of people now spend most of their APD on 3rd party rewards rather than flights.
I see pretty much zero risk of anything happening to APD now. In many ways the worst uncertainty part of Covid is now past.October 31, 2020 at 1:07 am NZDT #6239KiwiwingsParticipant
Back in Mar/Apr I did consider offloading APD but to be honest I’d just be buying crap I don’t need. I don’t expect to get the same type of value from APD as previously but I do still expect to get value. Air NZ won’t be going under so I’ve no concerns about losing APD altogether.
