I am planning a Europe holiday for my wife and I for August 2018 and am trying to figure out the best way to use the points we have accumulated using our David Jones American Express Card.
Currently we have about 107,000 points in the David Jones Membership Rewards option. Plus I am about to upgrade to the platinum version of the card because (though not exclusively because) they have offered us an upgrade bonus of 50,000 points if we upgrade. So we will have 150,000+ membership points available to use when we go to buy the tickets.
I know that there is a difference between the membership points version and the frequent flyer version, and that you can do a one off transfer between the two, but I don’t really understand what the best way to do this is.
Also, I have read a little bit about the Starwood Preferred Guest thing on this blog and that the David Jones card sync well with that, but I don’t fully understand it either.
We haven’t got a big priority about which carrier we fly. Just want to fly a good quality airline at the cheapest possible out of pocket expense to us.
Any help would be great!
