Kiwi Collector terms and conditions

Eligibility

  • The Kiwi Collector Scheme is open to all customers who purchase philatelic and collectable coins at full price through one of the eligible channels, these being the Collectables and Solutions Centre, Wanganui (by phone order, by mail order, from www.nzpost.co.nz/stamps) and participating PostShops.
  • The purchase of stamps for postage use is not eligible for inclusion in the Kiwi Collector Scheme.

Product Definition

  • The term ‘philatelic product’ refers to full sets of stamps, first day covers, miniature sheets, exhibition miniature sheets, maximum cards, presentation packs, annual albums and collections, and other items deemed by New Zealand Post to be intended for collection purposes.
  • The term ‘collectable coin product’ refers to commemorative currency (coins, banknotes, coin sets and banknote sets) and medallions sold by New Zealand Post.

Kiwi Collector Points System

  • Kiwi Collector Points are earned on the basis of one point per New Zealand dollar spent on purchasing products (as listed above) through an eligible channel.
  • Kiwi Collector Points are earned on purchases made between 1 January and 31 December, on all products issued within that calendar year. Points will cease accumulating on 31 December of that year. Please note, if you place an order which contains product scheduled to be issued in the next calendar year, the Kiwi Collector points you earn will be added to the next year's balance.
  • Unredeemed Kiwi Collector Points will not accumulate from one calendar year to the next.
  • Unused Kiwi Collector Points are non-transferable and are not redeemable for cash.
  • Kiwi Collector Points may be redeemed for Kiwi Collector Vouchers or other Kiwi Collector Rewards, which are communicated to customers each year via a mailing.
  • Kiwi Collector Points can only be earned on philatelic and collectable coin products that are purchased at their full price.
  • You need a minimum of 100 points to be eligible for Kiwi Collector Rewards.   

Kiwi Collector Card

  • The Kiwi Collector Card is required when purchasing products from participating PostShops (including customers who purchase philatelic or collectable coin products from the Collectables and Solutions Centre and participating PostShops).
  • Application forms for the Kiwi Collector Card can be obtained from the Collectables and Solutions Centre or you can sign up online at www.nzpost.co.nz/kiwicollector.
  • Only one Kiwi Collector Card can be loaded per customer account.
  • The Kiwi Collector Card is not a credit card and cannot be used for identification purposes.
  • The Kiwi Collector Card is intended for the verification of philatelic and collectable coin product purchases in participating PostShops, in order to credit the customer with Kiwi Collector Points according to the amount of their product purchase.
  • If a Kiwi Collector Card is reported lost or stolen, a replacement card will be posted to the customer. The old card will be cancelled and will no longer be valid for use.

Allocation and Notification of Kiwi Collector Points

  • All customers who purchase products from the Collectables and Solutions Centre will be credited with Kiwi Collector Points when their orders are processed. The Kiwi Collector Card is not required for purchases through this channel.
  • All purchases of products made at participating PostShops must be accompanied by the Kiwi Collector Card in order to earn Kiwi Collector Points. If a Kiwi Collector Card is not presented at the point of sale, Kiwi Collector Points will not be earned on the purchase.
  • All customers will be notified of their Kiwi Collector Points balance (Kiwi Collector Points accrued in any given year up to the date of notification) via the regular stamp issue mailings made by New Zealand Post, provided they have given permission for their names to be added to our mailing list. Alternatively, customers may call 0800 STAMPS to get their Kiwi Collector Points balances.
  • If product is returned, the Kiwi Collector Points earned on the purchase will be deducted from that customer’s account. Where bonus Kiwi Collector Points were awarded on the purchase of the returned philatelic or collectable coin product as the result of a promotion, these will also be deducted from that customer’s account.

Kiwi Collector Rewards

  • The Kiwi Collector Rewards available through the Kiwi Collector Scheme will be communicated each year in a mailing to all participating customers who have given permission for their names to be added to our mailing list. The Kiwi Collector Rewards for any given year will also be published online at www.nzpost.co.nz/kiwicollector.
  • All participating customers will receive a Reward Selection Form shortly after 31 December of the relevant year along with their Kiwi Collector Points balances for that year. Please call the Collectables and Solutions Centre on 0800 STAMPS in early February if you have not received this information so that your claim may be submitted before the closing date.
  • During the redemption period, the Kiwi Collector Reward Selection Form will also be available to complete online at www.nzpost.co.nz/kiwicollector.
  • The Reward Selection Form is to be used by the customer to select the reward(s) they wish to obtain, dependent on the number of Kiwi Collector Points accumulated during the year.
  • All Kiwi Collector Rewards must be claimed by 31 March of the year following the year in which the Kiwi Collector Points were accumulated.
  • Reward Selection Forms must be received by the Collectables and Solutions Centre by 5.00pm on the nearest working day prior to 31 March to be eligible for Kiwi Collector Rewards.
  • Reward Selection Forms received after this time will be invalid. Kiwi Collector Rewards will be dispatched within one month of receipt of Reward Selection Forms by the Collectables and Solutions Centre. Postage will not be charged for the delivery of Kiwi Collector Rewards.
  • New Zealand Post only produces limited quantities of reward products.  It does not guarantee supply.  Product that is no longer available will be advised online.
