Status definitely keeps me flying with Air NZ. And while credit cards get you half way to gold, you still need to earn 900 SP to hit Elite. And so while yes, that extra 500 SP you get with cards is...

And I figured I the opportunity to spend my time doing anything else was better.

Haha that is true.

When people say that though, they don't mean that they aren't in a very fortunate position. I know I am extremely lucky. It's kind of like saying "finding someone to be able to...

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...

It definitely comes out worse to pay IRD via a credit card and so that is one of the things that I pay direct deposit with.

For most expenses, even if there is a convenience fee though, I'll...

I never thought about this, but on the other hand, this lack of tax input means that we can accrue airpoints all day every day and not have to pay any taxes on them ourselves. So I'll take the...

I predict the next one will be a hit... They will surely learn from this one and be more conservative with the next one. If I was going to put my money on it, it'll be one that's more like the NZ...
