While YES bank is running a cool spend based offer to grab 5000 bonus points, here comes a similar offer during similar dates from HDFC bank. Not to wonder, because Yesbank credit card system is actually built by the ex-HDFC people but its surprising to see them compete at same time.
While i haven’t received the offer for my Diners Black, i did notice the email has been received for one of my family member and here’s how it goes. I still wonder why they delayed the email by a week.
HDFC Credit Cards: 2X Reward Points Offer
- Type: Spend based
- Spend Threshold: Personalised
- Only those customers who received the communication is eligible for the offer
- Bonus Points: 2X Points on all spends
- Max Cap: 2000 Bonus Points
- Offer Period: Dec 16th-31st 2017
- Fulfilment: Not mentioned (usually within 60 days)
- Effective Savings: 2.6% on Diners Premium & 6.6% on Diners Black
The spend requirement for this card is Rs.18,000 while others have received in the range of 10k-50k. A pretty good offer to maximize your returns on HDFC cards. And just incase if you’re holding diners premium, you can swap it to Diners Clubmiles and get another 2X value if you redeem for airmiles.
Note: The Diners Premium is no more available on their latest upgrade form as they have replaced it with Clubmiles, however Diners Rewardz is still there. This probably answers why Clubmiles look similar to Diners premium.
Issue with my DCB: When i tried to check with Diners support on this offer, they are not ready to look into my ac and rather simply say that it works only when i receive the email. But the problem is i just never receive any such promo emails on my DCB in recent times while my family email accounts are flooded with at-least 10 promo emails a month.
It seems i unsubscribed from them in my early days and i’m unable to get into their list even after month long escalations. Anyone else facing this kind of issues?
This is a fairly a decent promo from HDFC Bank. They’re sending customised offers very often but the issue with them is that the benefit is too low to be attractive, except this promo.
And also when you start spending more on your card, they stop sending such customised offers. The last targeted offer i received was on Dec 2016 and no such targeted offers received post that till date.
Did you receive this offer and how much is your spend requirement? Feel free to share your thoughts in comments below.
