For the last five years, Mercury and Air New Zealand have enjoyed a successful partnership, bringing rewards to customers through Airpoints Dollars™. In May 2022, we move to launch our own rewards, so we have made the mutual decision to end the Airpoints™ and Mercury partnership.
Our customers have told us they would like more ways of getting rewarded and more choice around how to use those rewards so that’s what we’re going to do.
The last day to earn Airpoints Dollars™ with Mercury will be 3 May 2022. This means that from 4 May 2022, Mercury customers will no longer be able to earn Airpoints Dollars when paying their monthly energy bill, or as a spend option in the Mercury app. Going forward, we’ll be rewarding you with wonderful points as part of our new rewards instead. We’ll be launching this in May so look out for details!
The last day to earn Airpoints Dollars™ with Mercury will be 3 May 2022. This means that any bill payments made before 11.59 pm 3 May 2022 will be eligible to earn Airpoints Dollars. After this date, Mercury customers will no longer be able to earn Airpoints Dollars when paying their monthly energy bill, or as a spend option in the Mercury app.
If you’re on a fixed term contract, we won’t be able to offer you Airpoints™ as a benefit beyond 3 May 2022. You’ll see in our Airpoints Terms and Conditions that we can stop awarding Airpoints Dollars if we cease to be a partner in Air New Zealand’s Airpoints programme. While we’re not able to offer you Airpoints™ as a benefit beyond 3 May 2022, you may be offered an alternative benefit (at Mercury’s discretion). If you qualify, you’ll receive a communication about this including any terms that will apply.
Please note that if you are currently signed up to a fixed term contract, the remaining term of your contract will still apply and your new benefit will be applied to this period. Mercury providing an alternative benefit does not allow you to terminate the original contract term. You’ll continue to benefit from any fixed pricing you’ve locked in for the remainder of the term.
If you’re currently signed up to exchange your Prompt Payment Discount for Airpoints, we will reinstate your Prompt Payment Discount on 4 May.

After 3 May 2022, you’ll be able to continue to use any Airpoints Dollars™ you have as part of the usual Airpoints™ programme.

To see if any of your Airpoints Dollars are going to expire, go to 'Your balances' in the Air NZ App.

The way we reward you at Mercury is changing and we’re gearing up to launch a new way to reward you in May 2022. You told us what you love, so Mercury’s wonderful new home of rewards will offer you even more ways to earn and spend. Like earning points when you pay your bill or by completing challenges in the app. Plus we’re including more great ways for you to get rewarded, like spending your points on Free Power Days (we know you love them!)
