How do I scan my Fly Buys or Air NZ Airpoints card to get it in to Z App?

You can now save time (and room in your wallet/purse) by adding your Fly Buys card and/or Air NZ Airpoints card in to Z App.

In case you get stuck, here are a couple of tips to help:

    1. Open Z App in a well lit area - if it's a bit dim or gloomy, things generally aren't going to work well!
    2. Hold your card in the same direction as your phone - portrait.  If you hold it landscape, or long ways, it doesn't read the barcode very well.
      So, like this: How to scan
    3. You can add two cards - one Fly Buys card and one Air NZ Airpoints card.
    4. At the moment, you can only add them by scanning the card's barcode but we're looking at options to give you other ways to add them in the future too.

Redeeming Z App vouchers

Our vouchers can be for lots of different things - a Z Espress coffee, a discount off fuel, some Fly Buys points... or even a Good in the Hood token!  Here's how you redeem the vouchers: 

  1. Come inside - Z App vouchers will only work in store, not at Pay at Pump.  This is because mobile phones aren't legally allowed to be used on our forecourts.
  2. Full brightness - if your phone is dim, there's a chance the voucher won't scan.  Turn your phone's brightness up to full before you bring up your voucher.
  3. Redeem when you're at the counter - Z App vouchers have a timer, so rather than run the risk of your screen closing or the timer running out it's best to wait until you're at the counter before you hit the Redeem option.
  4. Ask the Z Staff member to press the blue button - to scan a voucher at the counter, you'll need the Z Staff member to press the blue button on the scanner before you present your voucher to be scanned.  They need to press the button once and then release before you scan your voucher.bluebutton
  5. Hold your phone close to the scanner - with your voucher on screen, you'll need hold your phone right up to the scanner for it to read.   
  6. Enjoy - that's it!  Your voucher will be read by our scanners... but if that hasn't happened, simply email zapp@z.co.nz with a description of what happened and where/when it took place.  We'll look things up in our systems to see if we can't help you out.

I don't have an Android or iPhone - can I get Z App? 

Z App is only available on Android or iPhone.  We have looked at other types of device, like Windows phones, but right now we don't have any plans to develop an app for those platforms.  Unfortunately there just isn’t a large enough market share right now, however we’re definitely keeping a close eye on the market share of smartphones in NZ.  If in the future the market share of other operating systems change to a large enough size that we can justify, we will definitely look to extend Z App to other platforms such as Windows Phones.

How can I enter my Fly Buys or Air NZ Airpoints card into Z App without scanning the barcode, eg if I have a digital Fly Buys account?

  • Adding your Fly Buys card manually
    To manually add your Fly Buys card to Z App, select Your loyalty cards from the Z App menu and then select Type in your card number.  Choose Fly Buys and then type in your Fly Buys number. It will start with 6014 and be 16 digits long.
