All Nippon Airways Mileage Club members can redeem 30 percent fewer miles for Air New Zealand flight awards booked by Dec. 15 for travel through Dec. 19, 2013. The discount applies to all economy and business class flights on Air New Zealand excluding wholly domestic flights. International flights with a domestic segment in New Zealand are eligible. Only flights booked online will be discounted and you should select the Air New Zealand Mile Discount Campaign on the flight results page. For example, flights between Los Angeles and Auckland can be booked for 42,000 miles (normally 60,000 miles) in economy and 63,000 miles (normally 90,000 miles) in business class with this promotion.

Bottom line: If you do not have ANA Mileage Club miles, there is still a way to take advantage of this promotion. ANA partners with Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) and with the 5,000-point bonus on transfers of 20,000 points, SPG members can convert 37,000 SPG points into 42,000 ANA Mileage Club miles for a roundtrip economy ticket to Auckland from Los Angeles. ANA also partners with American Express Membership Rewards as a transfer partner and points convert into miles at a 1:1 ratio.
