So a David Jones salesman pestered me into enrolling into this card and rewards program: You'll get a 50$ voucher, 100$annual fees, worth it etc. Special events and what not was promised. 50$ voucher expired in 45 days I couldn't use....

So a David Jones salesman pestered me into enrolling into this card and rewards program: You'll get a 50$ voucher, 100$annual fees, worth it etc. Special events and what not was promised. 50$ voucher expired in 45 days I couldn't use. Forced myself into using a highly surcharged American Express. So useless is this credit card that I kept it home. There was a $15 subscription to keep it alive. 5th and 6th Month I missed this payment (owing largely to the awful nature of the card itself, it was erased from my memory). Instead of informing me, they sent a letter giving me 6 days to pay and a credit agency would be holding this information.

Claim to offer complementary deferred payment plan on spend over $250. When used, $35 fee gets charged - unable to get AMEX to remove it. Impossible to find out who to contact at DJs. Should be a great card, but AMEX acting in own interest, totally disregarding DJ customer experience. Avoid if you can. Better cards and deals out there.

I love this American Express Card! I was always told to be careful because it's American express but I have discovered a lot more shops are taking this card now with no surcharge . The interest rate is quite high but if you pay it off monthly, you can avoid that. I love the reward points you get and that you can use them to pay off your credit card , if you use this properly you can build your points up very quickly ! I save my points so at Christmas time I have enough to buy all my Christmas presents :) Great Net banking online so you know how many points you have, when your payment is due, your minimum payment and you can also transfer your points to credit on your card yourself, or it's easy to call and they do it straight over the phone. Over all it's a great card and I really like it, I recommend this to anyone that would like a credit card .

David Jones American Express is OK if used within DJs but many other stores are now charging extra interest which really puts a dampner on using the DJs American Express Card externally. The Rewards System is good but it takes ages to rack up enough points to purchase Gift Vouchers! The credit Card does come in handy for special shopping nights where big discounts are offered.

Good solid credit card with rewards

Although it has a higher interest charge, like many other cards, the rewards are very good. It is accepted at more places these days and the website is easy to navigate. The communication is relevant and does not arrive too often!!

We were offered with the credit card in a DJ store, at first we thought it's gonna be just a reward card. Just before signing I saw that this card costs $99 to open and asked DJ employee why should I pay for a reward card, she explained, that it's a credit card + rewards, we will get $200 bonus on it and will spend $99 for opening costs. After a month or so we received a card and activated it. After a couple of months from receiving the card we decided to use it. I read the letter carefully and found that I should have bought something outside the DJ three times to receive a bonus (which might take 6-8 weeks to come to my account). I checked my account and found that it's already minus $129, because we hadn't pay for opening the card and overdue minimum payment for it 99 + 30. And we found out that we not gonna receive 200 bonus, as we didn't pay with this card within one month of receiving. We are so frustrated with this card. We gonna pay this money back and close the account, as we've got the card with better %. I wish we were told that we should use the card right after receiving. Please be aware of this!

I love the David Jones American Express Card because it works on a points based system, which allows me to put them towards things like travel and gift vouchers. It also informs me of the latest offers and happenings of David Jones. The only thing to be aware of with the David Jones American Express Card would be the interest rate. But if you pay the card off monthly, you will be able to avoid this.

David Jones AMEX Card - looks good (nice black colour) but my god it's a crappy card. You have to spend so much money to get anything back - you're better just waiting for a discount sale. Also their website was clearly tailored to the David Jones website and thus is not a very good Credit Card website (difficult to find information). Would not recommend it to anyone.
