You probably know about: for every $1 spent, you can earn two credits, and 2,000 credits will fetch you a $20 reward to spend in-store or online. This means you’re effectively getting 2% back on every purchase.
Myer One offers three additional membership tiers:
Suppose you spend at least $1,500 in a membership year. In that case, you receive a $15 birthday reward, invitation to exclusive shopping events, and a $10 membership anniversary reward in addition to the base-level benefits.
Suppose you spend more than $6,000 in a membership year. In that case, you get a $20 birthday reward, $15 membership anniversary reward, an invitation to exclusive shopping events, free standard online delivery, and complimentary in-store gift wrapping.
The secretive Platinum tier is invite-only, so you would probably need to be sinking considerably more than $6,000 in annual spending. Perks include a $30 birthday voucher, $20 membership anniversary reward, free big and bulky online deliveries, exclusive shopping offers/events, and personalised shopping parties.
Myer has its own branded credit card, which gives 1 credit per $1 spent anywhere. That means with every $2,000 spent on that credit card. You can earn $20 shopping voucher reward. Previous bonus offers have included 10,000 shopping credits upon signup, worth $100. There is no annual fee in the first year.
Earn two Myer One shopping credits per $1 spent on time and kilometer charges with Myer One car rental partnered agencies, Hertz and Europcar. Ensure you enter your Myer One number in the ‘Frequent Traveller’ field and make sure the name in both accounts matches up.
Earn two shopping credits per $1 spent on airfares booked online through airnewzealand.com.au/myer-one. Make sure you add your Myer One card number on the ‘Review and Pay’ page when booking to get earning.
Earn one credit for every $2 spent. You can use this to book a trip once you get to travel again. However, minimum spending might apply, and transactions are capped at $10,000. See the list of participating agencies here.
Earn 1 Myer One credit for every $1 when you spend $30 or more on groceries or liquor at participating IGA and SUPA IGA stores. However, participating stores are limited and only located in Victoria and New South Wales
Earn 5 MYER one Credits for every $100 transferred over AU$1000. Members also benefit from bank beating exchange rates and OFX fee-free transfers.
It’s a mobile-based program which issues members with a digital barcode upon sign up and you are encouraged to scan the card every time you purchase with the David Jones department store. This barcode can also be saved in your Apple/Android wallet or the Stocard app.
However, there aren’t any specific points to earn. Instead, with each transaction you can still receive key benefits include:
-Welcome gift on signup (usually a $10 voucher)
-Birthday rewards each year
-News, brands and sales updates
-Access to exclusive offers and surprises
-Invitations to member events and competitions
-Entry into the monthly draw to win David Jones gift cards worth $5,000 with every purchase
Is it possible to earn reward points with David Jones? Yes, the only main way to earn ‘David Jones points’ is actually just through a version of the Amex Membership Rewards (MR) program: David Jones American Express Card Members and David Jones American Express Platinum Card Members!
Earn 2 MR points per $1 spent at David Jones, 3 MR points per $1 spent at major supermarkets and petrol stations, and 1 MR point per $1 spent everywhere else. Additional store-only benefits include the ability to defer payments for certain purchases.
It’s a good entry-level card if your main expenses are groceries and fuel, plus the occasional spend at David Jones.
Earn 4 MR points per dollar spent in-store, with most of the other earn rates and benefits being the same as the non-Platinum card.
You can also get complimentary travel insurance when the full cost of travel is paid from the card, plus two complimentary lounge passes to the American Express lounge at Sydney and Melbourne International Airports. With this, customers’s benefit will extend the manufacturer’s warranty for up to 12 months on eligible items purchased on your card, while Purchase Protection offers peace of mind with insurance up to 90 days if your eligible item purchased with the card is stolen or damaged.
Earn 1 point per dollar spent at David Jones which includes rewards such as gift cards or Qantas Points. However, applications are no longer accepted for the David Jones Storecard.
Everything you need to know about their special limited offer which ends on 2nd Dec 2020 plus the exclusive benefits offered under each card are all here. You can also manage your David Jones American Express credit card here
Earn Qantas Points at half the advertised Membership Rewards earn rates where all the points you earn will be automatically swept to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account each month.
- A Platinum card member would earn 4 MR points per $1 spent at David Jones, or 2 Qantas Points per $1 spent instead.
- For supermarkets and fuel stations, that’s 1.5 Qantas Points per $1.
- For everything else, it’s a low 0.5 Qantas Points per $1 (this is one of the card’s shortcomings).
If you don't want to redeem with Qantas, then the alternative would be to redeem your points in the flexible Membership Rewards program, such as:
- Can pay for David Jones purchases in-store or online
- Transfer to nine other frequent flyer programs including Velocity, KrisFlyer and Asia Miles at a 2:1 ratio
- Use MR points for a credit on your card account
-Swap MR points to gift cards, travel bookings or other merchandise
