Jet Airways seems to be aggressive lately and i see their social media feeds posting winners of million/billion festival every now and then. So it seems to be Jet’s move to run the promotion with HDFC along with the rest to give a snowball effect.
HDFC has been running good set of targeted offers in recent times and as you may know, most of them excludes cards with miles feature. Now HDFC & Jet has come up with a special offer for HDFC Jet Credit Card holders alone. This offer targets top spenders of the day, every day from 15th February 2018 – 31st March 2018. Here’s more info in detail,
Offer: Top Spender gets upto 15,000 Bonus JPMiles
- Offer Period: 15th Feb 2018 – 31st March 2018
- Fulfilment: June 15th 2018
- You can win only once
- Bonus Miles on Jet Titanium/Select: 5,000 JPMiles
- Bonus Miles on Jet Platinum: 7,500 JPMiles
- Bonus Miles on Jet World/Signature: 10,000 JPMiles
- Bonus Miles on Jet Diners: 15,000 JPMiles
While you can never know how much you need to spend to be a winner, here are my wild guesses and this is primarily based on the the average credit limits on the said variants. So to increase your chances of winning to as good as 90% or above, you need to aim for at-least below spend range. (my guesses, not actuals)
- Titanium/Select: 1 Lakh (Minimum Spend: 5k)
- Platinum: 2 Lakh (Minimum Spend: 10k)
- Word/Signature: 3 Lakhs (Minimum Spend: 15k)
- Diners Jet: 4 Lakhs (Minimum Spend: 20k)
Note: One top spender will be chosen for each of the above variants, which means, your chances are relatively high when you hold low end cards but again you get less miles compared to higher end variants.
Sad part of this is, you never know whether you won or not and you need to wait until 15th June to see if you were lucky. Wish they have systems to release the names in a week or so, so the customer is informed.
If you win, you get about ~100% more miles than usual earn rate, which is decent enough to push you spend more.
Personally, I’m not a fan of the top spender programs as it sounds more like a gamble. Though, this one is kind of worth giving a try if you’ve high spends lined up the month. As there are 4 winners/day, there would be about 180 Winners in the entire program, so the probability of winning is decent.
Are you participating in this offer? Hope to see few winners from readers here. Best of luck! What’s your thoughts on HDFC’s Top spender offer? Feel free to share your comments below.
