Do these cards get you discounts on most backpacking needs in New Zealand?

I think it depends on where you go in NZ - personally, I have had most luck with the ISIC card over the other cards whilst in NZ.

I took YHA, VIP and BBH cards to Australia and New Zealand. Next time I wouldnt bother with a VIP card - esp for New Zealand. Any backpackers that gave discounts for VIP gave a bigger discount for BBH. BBH hostels I found tended to be smaller than YHA - some places I stayed in with BBH were cheaper than YHA and had a room to myself some nights at no extra charge. If you want more information just let me know
Have a great time!
