You can transfer up to 34,975 of your Starpoints® into your Air New
Zealand Airpoints Dollars account. 65 Starpoints give you 1 Airpoints Dollar.
And for every 20,000 Starpoints transferred within the same transaction, you'll
earn 5,000 bonus Starpoints which will be automatically added to your transfer
up to a maximum of 39,975 Starpoints for 615 Air Points per eligible
There is no minimum point transfer requirement for Platinum members. Gold
members have a minimum point transfer of 1,500 Starpoints and Preferred members
have a minimum point transfer of 2,500.
Transfer maximums are based on a combination of member Starpoints and the
Starwood Preferred Guest airline transfer transaction bonus. Only one
airline transfer transaction per member per program per 24 hour period is
allowed; multiple transfer transactions within the same 24 hour period will
reject. Both the Starwood Preferred Guest and airline frequent flyer
program accounts must have identical member names in order to complete this
request; different names will cause the transfer to reject.
Please note that airline transfer awards to Air New Zealand & Air Points
may require up to 15-20 business days handling and processing time.
