I see JR Duty Free have another 15% off sale for all online purchases until the 2nd July 2017. They have stores in Christchurch and Wellington airports and also offer a pickup service at Auckland airport for online orders.June 19, 2017 at 12:16 am NZST #2717drajkParticipant
I’ve found that in general NZ Duty Free prices aren’t great value compared to some other sources. For example I have seen fragrance specials at Chemist Warehouse in Australia which are less than half of equivalent NZ Duty Free prices. I’ve also on occasion seen some Alcohol prices at Countdown lower than NZ Duty Free prices.June 19, 2017 at 7:17 am NZST #2719Steve BiddleKeymaster
Yes.. It’s very much a case of buyer beware. It’s not always cheaper.
Gone are the days duty free represented a true bargain. Like everything at an airport it’s about maximising revenue.
It’s not uncommon in Australia to find most champagne is cheaper at Dan Murphy’s than at duty free. Here in NZ thatings are’t quite the same but with good supermarket deald they will be cheaper than duty free. Whisky I’ve both looked at and purchased on recent trips has only been cheaper at duty free due to 15% and 20% off deals, and had it not been for these deals it would have been cheaper to buy retail.July 30, 2017 at 7:50 pm NZST #3172nznigelParticipant
Now 20% off to August 1. And when I compared JR against all the others, it seems to be the best price (well, for Jim Beam Black Label anyway).
Let’s see if come August 1 whether they extend it again!

I wonder if you just have to order by end date or if that includes pick up also? No restrictions noted in T&CAugust 1, 2017 at 1:18 pm NZST #3223
