Another piece of points-earning plastic touches down today with the launch of a new Qantas Frequent Flyer Diners Club card.
This one comes with an interesting twist: you also get a MasterCard that's attached to your Diners Club card account, to use at the many shops and restaurants where Diner's Club is not accepted. However, you won't earn as many frequent flyer points when you swipe the MasterCard.
So how do the points stack up?
You get 1.5 Qantas Frequent Flyer points per dollar for the first $60,000 spent each year on 'eligible purchases' on the Diners Club, and 1.25 points per dollar over the $60k mark.
Use the bundled MasterCard and you'll earn 1 Qantas Frequent Flyer point per dollar for the first $60,000 spent each year, and 0.75 points per dollar beyond that.
The cost of the Qantas Frequent Flyer Diners Club card with World MasterCard account – and isn't that a mouthful! – comes in at $260 for the first card and $50 for a supplementary card.
The Diners Club card also opens the door at over 450 international airport lounges, as well as providing travel insurance and a discounted limousine service.
