The Diners Experience

Over the past 20 years, the card industry has relied on the same tactics and incentives to drive consumers, competing on two basic premises: rewards and consumption. This race to differentiate based on rewards has only led to greater homogenisation. A global brand with a proud heritage – it all began in 1949 when businessman Frank McNamara arranged a dinner with guests at Major’s Cabin Grill restaurant. Once dinner was over, Frank realised he had left his wallet in his other suit. Fortunately, the restaurant owner knew him and let him leave his business card as an IOU. He resolved never to face this embarrassment again. In February 1950, Frank McNamara and his partner Ralph Schneider returned to Major’s Cabin Grill. When the bill came, Frank presented a small cardboard card, a Diners Club Card, and signed for the meal. In the card industry, this event is known as the First Supper, and, in 1955, the Diners Club Card became the first charge card accepted by airlines. Since then, Diners Club International has grown into a highly respected global brand with a proud heritage as the world’s first charge card. The Diners Club Card is issued in more than 200 countries and is accepted by 14-million establishments around the world and in South Africa.
