Orphan Airpoints Dollars

Sorry if this issue has been discussed previously.

I have an Airpoints account with around $100 Airpoints dollars, which are expiring soon. I don't use this account, because of my UA status.

Is there anything that can be done with these dollars or do I just let them lapse?

I cleared all our old expiring points using sharpoints

If you live outside NZ you will have to lie and put a NZ delivery address in your profile.

Nzsportstech that's interesting. Do you know if that putting an NZ address would work for joining Shairpoints if you reside outside of NZ?

The OP won't be NZ*G/*E as otherwise the AP dollars wouldn't expire.
