Where do they go....
It's pretty clear from the AirPoints T&C that there are a few components to gain/renew status:
- AirNZ operated flights & certain NZ partner/alliance flights
- Star Alliance operated flights
- Credit Card earn

For Silver and Gold, Credit Card earn can only contribute up-to HALF the requirement to gain/renew status. In your case, up-to 405 Status Points can be gained from Credit Card earn, the remaining 405 SP needed to be gained from AirNZ, NZ partner/alliance or Star Alliance flights.

This is already incredibly generous, as no other FFPs around the world offers such a status earning scheme from Credit Card spending.

As for where they go... they will count towards a higher tier - in your case getting to Elite... of course you'll have to requalify for Gold first.

I wish people actually read/understand the T&C before "feeling" they've been let on or mislead... because they're not and these requirements are quite easily accessible from the website.
