Earn frequent flyer points by applying for a Diners Club card thanks to new partnership with Qantas.
The launch of a new rewards credit card from Diners Club now means cardholders can take advantage of added value on purchases made on the card. A World MasterCard is also linked to the same account, offering you even more opportunity to earn points.
Both cards operate under the same credit facility and all transactions are shown on the same statement. You’re also not limited to a pre-set spending limit, so this makes it the ideal account for those people who use a credit card very regularly to pay for purchases. The difference between them is that having both a Diners Club card and a World MasterCard increases the available number of outlets in which you can make payments.
There is also a difference in the number of points you’re able to earn with each card. If you’re keen to maximise how many points you earn you can use your Diners Club card to pay for purchases. If you’re at an outlet that doesn’t accept Diners Club payments, you can still use your MasterCard and know you’re earning points anyway.
Frequent flyer points
Each dollar you spend using your Diners Club Frequent Flyer card to pay for valid purchases will earn you 1.5 points. This applies for the first $60,000 spent in any year. After this amount, the rate of points per dollar drops down to 1.25 points. This is easily one of the more competitive rewards earning rates available in Australia.
If you do happen to use your World MasterCard to pay for valid purchases, each dollar you spent will accumulate 1 point. Again, this applies for the first $60,000 spent per year. After this amount, you’ll earn 0.75 points.
Perks and privileges
Being a Diners Club cardholder entitles you to a range of privileges. This includes access to more than 450 international airport lounges around the world. You can also take advantage of preferred seating at many entertainment events, including theatre, concerts and even sporting events.
If you’re travelling overseas and you need access to office facilities to conduct meetings, your Diners Club card gives you 12 months free membership with Regus Businessworld Gold. This gives you unlimited access to more than 1,100 business lounges in more than 500 cities. All lounges are conveniently located in prime CBD areas and offers internet access, as well as a professional place to meet with clients.
Diners Club cardholders have access to some of Australia’s finest wines, with many exclusive selections offered to you regularly. All wines ordered through the Cellar Door membership are delivered directly to your door.
What’s more, if you do tend to make international purchases from American sites and you pay for those purchases using your Diners Club card, shipping costs out to Australia will be heavily discounted.
You can also benefit from up to 37 days interest free on eligible purchases on your account.
