Who is it good for?

The David Jones American Express credit card is well suited to David Jones customers as well as those who want shopping rewards. With this card, David Jones customers receive several benefits, such as complimentary standard delivery when you shop in-store or online.

The high interest rates on this card make it a suitable choice for card holders who pay their bill in full each month. For other potential card holders, this card offers few advantages.

The David Jones American Express card is not particularly well suited to budget card holders. The card charges a moderate annual fee that will not benefit those who are looking for a no-fee credit card. There are cards on the market with lower interest rates and no annual fee that may better suit budget customers.

What RateCity says

This card may be a sensible choice for customers who shop at David Jones regularly, as it earns 3 Rewards Points per $1 spent at large supermarkets and petrol stations and 2 Rewards Points per $1 when you shop at David Jones. However, for potential customers who do not regularly buy at David Jones, this card offers little benefit.

This card earns the highest rate of points when shopping at supermarkets and petrol stations, but the lowest rate when making purchases everywhere else, excluding David Jones. This rewards scheme means that customers who do not shop at David Jones are missing out on a large portion of potential rewards.

For those who want credit card rewards but are not current David Jones customers, there are other cards that can offer you a program that may better suit your shopping preferences.

Applying/eligibility

Customers must also have a personal or household income of $40,000 or more per year. Applying online takes only 10 minutes, and applicants will receive a response within five to 10 working days.
