SP/AP earning CC's for non-residents.

Are their any non-resident's who have had success obtaining a CC that earns SP's and AP's?
If so which one?

Which are the current favourite CC's for NZ?

All banks will have similar requirements to open a credit card. If you're a true non resident with no relationship with NZ you'll pretty much find it's impossible

As for the best card there isn't one - there are pros and cons to each.

Exactly. For me the 1 card that I really would want to have at my disposal is the Kiwibank card since it lets you straight-out purchase APDs which is a lifesaver for me when I run out of APDs for upgrades. The others all have different bonuses/earn rates but as far as I'm aware, this is the only way to buy APDs.
