Buy 1 Get 1 Free on Sunday Brunch with HDFC Infinia Credit Cards

By | December 14, 2019

HDFC Bank has been experimenting various dining offers and they’re especially interested in targeting the top tier cards for obvious reasons. As you might know HDFC Infinia already gets you 2X Rewards for Dining on all days while HDFC Diners Black gives you 2X rewards in the weekends (new benefit) and this is a separate spend based offer sent to select Infinia credit card customers.

Offer Details

Just like the most popular Bookmyshow Buy1 Get1 Movie Offer, here too, you pay for 1 brunch and get 1 free. This is applicable only on Sunday brunches at select restaurants in select cities.

  • Offer: Buy 1 Get 1 Sunday brunch at select 5 star properties like Radisson Blu | Courtyard by Marriott | The Westin | Hyatt Regency | Sheraton Grand | The Park
  • Max Cap: Upto max 2 on 6 bookings
  • Type: Spend Based, Targeted
  • Spend Requirement: Rs.25,000 spend in a “single weekend” (including friday)
  • Offer Period: 4th Oct 2019 – 30th Jan 2020
  • Fulfilment: 21 Days of achieving the weekend spends.
  • Terms & Conditions

It appears to be a prepaid booking but what’s unclear is the actual list of restaurants. I guess that should be visible when you’re eligible for the offer. Will have to wait and watch.

How it works?

So to maximize the benefit, you got to “select 4” so you get 2 for free – which is 50% savings.

Bottomline

This is definitely an amazing offer and I hope the bank sees good traction with it and pushes more such Dining offers in the future. And if this offer works for them, chances are Diners Black too would be targeted in future, provided the fact that the entire company (let’s say entire credit card industry) was built on the Dining concept 🙂

While this is good, I wish they rather send something like Marriott Dining Voucher which makes it easy to redeem. Or even better, they could allow us to choose from Marriot/Taj/Trident/Oberoi – That would be AMAZING!

That said, remember that you can avail a similar benefit like this even with Gourmet Passport by Dineout or Bookmyshow Buy1 Get1 offer on select credit cards like ICICI Emeralde Credit Card, but yes, the limit & cap is there.

What’s your take on this spend based offer on Infinia cards? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

    Well I made two transactions of over 25k each in October over weekends and I haven’t received any communication from HDFC regarding the offer codes.
    Not sure whether its worth even chasing since Dineout and Eazydiner anyways gives Buy 1 get 1 on many 5 star brunch spreads.

    I have received Infinia offer. I am now eligible and able to see the available hotels. I feel it’s similar to Gourmet passport offer of dineout. Both the cases it’s 1+1. So what’s so special about it?

    Citi is offering 2x rewards on international spends between 15 dec and 15 jan! On cumulative foreign spends of 1 lakh and above

      Cool. Any idea whether Citi prestige would fetch 4X rewards or 3X rewards with this promo as it already has 2X on intl spends.

        You get 2X any way on Prestige for FX without this promotion. So now is 2 times 2X, which is 4X the regular earning. This translates to 4 prestige points per Rs 100 – which is 16 miles for Rs 100 (1 prestige point = 4 miles).

          Yes, I assume it works that way but given that Citi is mercilessly cutting down the benefits, I’m surprised to see this!

            Just now another mail came – they increased the interest rates. Not that it should matter to us – but it does signal that not everything is fine. Since no other CC company is doing the same (HDFC is adding benefits), I think Citi’s CC division is not doing all that well.
