    David Jones is looking to bolster its financial services division, announcing a new partnership with Qantas to bring Qantas Frequent Flyer points to its David Jones American Express card and Storecard programs.
    While specific details on how consumers will be able to earn points with these cards are yet to be announced, the company yesterday confirmed that the new initiative will be rolled out in the “second half of calendar 2012” and will be timed to tie in with the launch of the new David Jones American Express Platinum Card.

    How do you think us Aussies feel about lack of options for AAnother AAirlines progrAAm... so frustrating (especially as i'd rather have AA EXP than QF WP).

    I entirely understand. But objectively, AA does make an effort for members in at least some other countries, whereas QF seems hell bent on being the airline of Australians, by Australians, for Australians - and nobody else.
