If anyone is looking for a link for the Platinum card I have one:

http://amex.com.au/refer/jamesgzheI?CPID=100219781

Would be more than happy if someone uses it. I will get 20k points per referral. The Platinum card gives 3 points per $ at supermarkets and petrol stations, 4 at DJs, 1 elsewhere. Plus 40,000 Amex points on sign-up which can be transferred to 30,000 QF points.

Thanks in advance.

Hi

I think this is a great little card for $99.

3 ppd at supermarkets and petrol stations
1 ppd for utilities / government / etc (no 1/2 ppd category like other cards)
30,000 bonus points transfers to SPG 15,000.

Amex welcome offers (assume this is provided on every new card)
$20 credit for $40 spend at DJ's Online (Free delivery on all David Jones orders and stack with Qantas Mall to get extra points on the purchase)
$15 credit for $30 spend at Woolworths

Here's my link if anyone would like to use it:

Here is my referral link for the Platinum DJ's card which comes with a sign up bonus of 40000 rewards points for the applicant (which = 30000 Qantas points).

Click here for the regular DJ's card instead which I think is the sweet spot as it gives you 3 rewards points (or 2.25 Qantas points) per $ at supermarkets and petrol stations for just $99 annual fee. It comes with a sign up bonus of 30000 reward points points (which = 22500 Qantas points).

I'll get 20000 rewards points (15000 Qantas points) for any successful referrals - so thanks in advance if you use my links :)

Hi

Please see below for my referral code for the general DJ card which I believe is best value. This is live and working.

I get 20k points and the referee gets 10k making a total of 40k membership rewards upon signup. Points post immediately after three transactions outside of DJ.

Thanks

Mark

With Shop Small coming in November this is a great time to get this card for $99. You can also get a supplementary card with no annual fee for the first year.
Expect that you will be able to take advantage of spend $20 get $10 statement credit 5 times on each card when registered for shop small.
With most Amex cards you can't get a sign up bonus if you hold another Amex but you CAN get the bonus on the DJ Amex card if you haven't held a DJ card in the last 18 months.

With this card you earn
- 3 reward points per dollar spent at major supermarkets and petrol stations
- 2 reward points per dollar spent at David Jones
- 1 reward point per dollar spent everywhere else

Using a referral link means you will get 30,000 DJ reward points or 22,500 Qantas points. when you spend 3 times outside DJ within the first month (3 x $1 purchases will meet this condition).
If you apply without referral you would only get 20,000 DJ points or 15,000 Qantas points.
I will get 20,000 points if you use my link below.

Hope someone can get benefit for this.

Just an alert for people considering this. As has been discussed extensively in other threads getting those bonus points is NOT guaranteed if you hold another AMEX card.

I applied in Aug using your link Dr Ralph (thanks for that).

I had hiccup as my very, very old store card was still in their system.
Ended up speaking to them. They removed reference to previous store card and assured me there would be no problem even though I also had Platinum edge.

Sure enough. 3 x $1 purchases at Woolies and bonus points arrived.

Looking at previous threads most people got bonus if holding one other non DJ Amex. A minority needed to call.
Trust all goes well if anyone uses my link

I'm glad things worked out for you jkbaus and thank you for using my referral link. But my memory was that it was more than a small number of people that missed out. Like always your mileage may vary. It's definitely worth people being aware that it's not guaranteed and they may have to fight for it.

As posted in another thread, I can confirm that you can get the sign-on bonus for a DJ Amex despite already having an Amex card and it works the other way as well.

I sent +1 a referral for a DJ Amex card. After spending on the card three times outside of DJs within a month, she received the sign-on bonus of 30k Amex points (which convert to 22.5k QFF points). I also received 30k QFF points for referring her.

Then, +1 sent me a referral for the QF Ultimate. Despite my already having the DJ Amex, she received 30k for the referral and I've just received the 100k sign-on bonus points.

So in summary, you can receive the sign-on bonus for an Amex issued card despite have a DJ Amex; and you can receive the sign-on bonus for the DJ Amex despite already having an Amex issued card. And the person who refers you can receive the 30k referral points in both instances.

For our close friends who may be interested, here is +1's link for the DJ Amex card: http://amex.com.au/refer/gailgiOq4

and my link for the QF Ultimate is: http://amex.com.au/refer/jamesgV95l?XLINK=MYCP

If you are aiming at SPG points and Marriott reward package, you should get one DJ AMEX card. These are the basics:

  1. you would get a sign up bonus for 30,000 Membership Rewards Points, which could be redeemed 230 dollar gift card in David Jones. But this is the worst way to use it. One of the best way to use is to transfer to SPG hotel program. You can redeem it from 450 dollar to 1000+ dollar depending on how, where and when you use it. I will talk into the details later.
  2. You will get 3 MR per dollar spend at Supermarkets and Petrol Stations / 2 MR per dollar spend at David Jones / 1 MR everywhere else. This is better than Explorer card which only get 2 MR at the Supermarket and also better than the Edge card which only get 2 MR at the petrol. Every dollar spend at supermarket and gas station will get the highest SPG point in the world (1 dollar spent=1.5 SPG). The AMEX SPG Card in US, Japan and Canada can only get 1 SPG per dollar and that is US dollar. The the DJ Card is highly effective on getting SPG points.
  3. Free giftwrapping with David Jones, easy to use and save money and time on holidays.
  4. Free delivery on online orders and shopping in David Jones stores. If you are buying something big and heavy such like set of plates, glasses, vase and coffee machine, and if you buy it during Boxing Day, Free delivery is there for you. You just tell the salesman “delivery”during check out. I just used it this Boxing Day when we got a whole set of kitchenware from DJ. We didn’t drive that day since parking all day will cost at least 40 dollars and no parking bay available after 11:00 am.
  5. return to David Jones is extremely easy when you paid with you AMEX DJ Card based on my personal experience. I had both bought and returned to DJ using AMEX DJ card and other credit cards. It was totally different.
  6. retention offer: easy to get another 20,000 points at the beginning of second year
  7. Annual Fee: $99


Annual Fee is nothing because you could get a lot from this card. I transferred all my membership reward point to SPG and Marriott program.

David Jones membership rewards converting to Starwood Preferred Guest points(SPG) is 2 to 1. Therefore, 30,000 sign up bonus is equal to 15,000 Starwood Preferred Guest Points=45,000 Marriott reward Points=worth at least 450 dollar if you buy points directly from the SPG.


With 40,000 Marriott points you could get a free stay in Pier One Sydney Harbour which Bar price goes from 450 dollar to 600 dollar depending on time.


If you would like to watch the Tennis Australia Open in Melbourne next week. The Marriott Melbourne Bar price now is around 600 dollar per night, but still you can get it within 40,000 Marriott points. There was plenty of room available at the beginning of January. If you redeem four nights with Marriott hotel, you get the fifth night for free. That means you will get five nights for only 160,000 Marriott points.


This is not the end of story. But if you use the point on developing country. It will triple the value of the points. The 40,000 point hotel in Developed country you can get it only for 10,000 points in developing country. For example, in Beijing you get free night in JW Marriott, Marriott and Renaissance hotel around 10,000 to 15,000. The sign up bonus will give you three to five nights in five Star hotels in one of the major modern city in the world which is worth 1,000+ dollar. And most of the SPG and Marriott Hotel in developing country is luxurious and built less in ten years.


The value of the points varies from how you use it (gift card, airline program and hotel program) and varies from when and where you use it. Pay with points when the price is high and pay with cash when price is low.


The platinum DJ card have the same SPG rate at Supermarket and Petrol Station, but it has 400 dollar annual fee. So the 99 dollar annual fee for the AMEX DJ is most reasonable.


You get 10,000 point extra I receive a 20,000 referral bonus points for your successful application.


My referral link is

PM me if you are interested. I will share more info on how to get the retention offer and save more money with DJ AMEX once you finished the application.

You’ve written a good description. I already have the card and am reminded to ask for a retention basis at the end of my first year.
thank you

I forget to mention that you still can get the sign up bonus from DJ AMEX even though you previous had the platinum Charge or Explorer card before. This would work out either way even you had DJ AMEX first.
And another thing is that there is no cap on how much point you can get each month.

I see this card as very good for the sign-up bonus and if you do shopping at DJs. However, the 3ppd on supermarkets is the same as Edge. You are right that it is an improvement on the petrol category though.

In supermarkets we can get gift card for most stores, If we have to shop in Myer other than DJ, we can use the gift card. And sure the edge card can do the same.
