This Diners Club account comes with both a Diners Club card and a World Mastercard, which means you can make payments even if Diners Club is not accepted. It offers 2 Diners Club rewards points per $1 spent with the Diners Club card and 0.75 points per $1 spent with the Mastercard. Unusually, you can even earn points for cash advance transactions – although the fees that come from withdrawing cash could offset the benefit of these points.
You can redeem your points for rewards including gift cards, merchandise, charitable donations and point transfers to partnered frequent flyer and loyalty programs. This account also gives you access to over 700 airport and member lounges around the world, complimentary travel insurance and purchase insurance covers, as well as exclusive offers and perks through Diners Club Privileges and Mastercard Priceless. But with a $299 annual fee, it is worth looking at exactly how often you’ll be able to pay with your Diners Club card. If you end up using the Mastercard more, you might want to look at other rewards cards to see how their value compares.
