CRED Offer: Pay using Amazon Pay UPI and get upto Rs.500 Cashback

By | May 14, 2020

As you might know, CRED recently launched CRED RentPay & Stash and along with it seems we’ve some offers to explore as well. This offer we’re looking at is with Amazon Pay UPI, meaning, when you pay your Credit card bill via Amazon Pay UPI through CRED, you get upto Rs.500 Cashback.

Offer Details

  • Offer: Get Rs.50 to Rs.500 on min payment Rs.5000
  • Offer Expires: by 31-May-2020
  • This offer is valid once per user for the duration of the offer and cannot be combined with any other offer.
  • Detailed T&C

How to Avail CRED Amazon Pay UPI Cashback?

Amex Card on CRED
  • Step 1: Get Amazon pay UPI ready by checking out Amazon Pay section on Amazon App. You need to link your Bank ac for this. Your UPI will be something like [email protected]
  • Step 2: Goto CRED and choose “Collect UPI”. Use your above amazon pay UPI handle here.
  • Step 3: You would have got the collect request in Amazon App now. Approve it and you are done.

Now you should see a cashback from Amazon PAY in your Amazon pay statement. And along with it, you should also see a small cashback from CRED as well.

I did a test by making Rs.5000 payment and got below cashback: Rs.132 on Amazon Pay & Rs.8 on CRED. That’s Rs.140 for spending 2 mins, not bad.

Final Thoughts

While these offers are good, I don’t know why one needs to link Bank’s UPI with Amazon UPI. Why not use Amazon Pay Balance instead?

I’m not a great fan of UPI except for the simplicity of its ID. But I don’t see a need to use it the way we do above, except for cashback. I mean I could rather use the Bank’s UPI and get things done. Maybe I’m missing something?

Either way, its a decent offer to avail before its gone!

Have you used this CRED Amazon pay UPI offer? How much was the cashback? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

Thanks to Ameya for sharing the offer details.

    I keep getting below response after I enter my UPI pin to finish the transaction when I try. Tried more than 10 times in the last half an hour.

    Sorry, something went wrong
    Something unexpected happened, rest assured we are working to fix it

      I was also facing the same issue. I closed all the apps and just opened CRED app and initiated the transaction again. It went through successfully. I recommend you to try the same once.

    I don’t think Amazon will allow users to pay from “Amazon Pay Balance”. If they do, users will start misusing it – top up the Amazon wallet using credit card. And pay back the credit card using the same money! Double dip without spending any money – loyalty points & cred cashback!!!

        Very true sid. Even if limits are applied to loading the wallet, there are gift cards which can be purchased via CC to no limit and used. It would be a never ending cycle.

        Have you ever successfully paid CC bill using CC? Sid/ Anyone

          Well, I did while it lasted, using TMW wallet.
          Load by TMW wallet using credit card, and use the virtual TMW card to make credit card payment using Cred. It was great while it lasted

      No issue protap. Just do the transaction for 5000 rs or above and you will get cashback of minimum of 50 rs to maximum cashback of 500/ as Amazon pay balance. You need not want to collect offer before this transaction and it worked for my friend. I collected this offer on may 16 and paid my bill on 25th May and got 461 rs for paying 5237/ rupees via Amazon pay upi in cred app.

      For first time transaction there is a limit of 5000, so you can just make a bank transfer first of a small amount or something and then you can pay the credit card bill after collecting the offer.

Has anyone tried paying the bill under similar circumstances and received the cashback? I dont have any urgency to pay bill right now hence I am not taking a try.

    I check my Amazon app daily for deals and buying the elusive vegetables on Amazon Fresh. I haven’t once come across this Cred – Amazon UPI offer. Was this for select customers?
    Moreover, on the Cred app I dont see how one can pay via another apps UPI id. Cred is promoting it’s own UPI and what’s you to link your bank account with their app.
    Both my Cred and Amazon app are updated.
    Could someone provide a step-by-step procedure on how to pay via amazon upi?

      It’s for everyone. Go ahead and simply do the payment using APay UPI. When you are on Cred’s checkout page(where you select the payment option), you’ll see offer’s header below the Amazon Pay UPI.

      Try making a payment of INR 5K or less. There appears to be certain monetary restrictions on the amounts that could initially be paid through UPI. I’d a similar issue and tried with a payment of 5K. It went through.

      Reply
  18. Sree

    Finally my transaction went through! After several failed attempts after entering UPI pin, I tried doing a transaction below 5k. Did 4500 to my SCB card and it went thro! Now I was shocked and wondering if I can try again and be qualified since minimum transaction is 5k. I tried another to my Citi card for 7500 and again failed. Waited 2 days and now it went thro. Got 243 amazon pay cash back

    I made a payment of Rs. 5,002 today and got Rs. 189 cashback (Amazon Pay) and Rs. 10 + Rs. 10 (Cred cashback)

    I had collected the CRED payment offer few days back from Amazon website. Yesterday, I tried making the payment in CRED app, but Amazon Pay UPI was not been shown as UPI payment option.

    Today, I tried doing a mobile recharge from Amazon Pay app with Amazon UPI as the payment option. During the transaction it said my Amazon app version has been upgraded recently and hence a reverification will be required through SMS. I went ahead with it. The payment went through.

    After this I immediately proceeded to Cred app to make another credit card payment, and I could see Amazon Pay UPI option. I was positively surprised. I went ahead with Amazon Pay UPI payment for credit card and got Amazon Pay cashback of Rs. 189 πŸ™‚

    Okay apropos my comment above. Tried limiting the payment through Amazon Pay to Rs 5000/-, viola, it went through successfully. Received an instant cashback of Rs 169/- from Amazon. Just for the record, no card payment offer was previously collected on Amazon website or App. Hope this helps all those who encountered payment failure through Amazon Pay.

    I was facing Similar payment failure issues, so I tried making a very nominal transfer (INR 50) to my spouse using Amazon Pay UPI, and that went through successfully (p.s. I got INR 2 as cashback as well). I then waited for 24 hours and paid my HDFC Diners card bill of 17k. Viola, it went through successfully and I received INR 500 cashback from Amazon 😁

    So Basically what I learnt is that you are only allowed to initiate a payment of upto 5k on your first Amazon Pay UPI transaction. Transactions over 5k are permitted only post 24 hours of your first transaction upto 5k.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi All,
    I got total 1000/- cash back by paying a total of 40k credit card bill ( cash back of 500+500 using 2 amazon pay accounts on 20k payment each). Here is what i found out.
    – Some banks have overall limit of UPI translation amount in a day, 10k in case of ICICI, hence any payment above 10k was not going thru. HDFC had higher limit.
    – Make sure, your amazon account have same mobile number as registered in your CRED app and you are using same sim cellphone.
    – You can register your credit card in your friend’s/wife cred account to pay πŸ™‚

    Sorry.. this is off the topic question. I have SBI SimplyClick Advantage Card ( limit: 22k against the fd of 30k). I don’t have a regular source of income (say an unemployed). I want to apply for Amazon Pay Credit Card. So, I have few questions.

    a) Pin Code of my area is not serviceable , so can i use other pin code (which is serviceable) to apply?
    b) It asks for Company Name, what to write there? as i don’t have a job.
    c) I got my sbi card in September, 2019, so are there 8 months enough to apply for another card?

    Please answer

      Small hack is, create new email only for statements and have rules to forward only statements to newly created mail and which can be used for CRED protect, this way your data is safe in all ways.
