HDFC Credit Card Limit Enhancement Offers in 2022

HDFC Credit Card Limit Enhancement offer

We’ve seen multiple credit limit enhancement offers on HDFC Bank credit cards during 2020 & 2021 as seen here and it looks like the bank has decided to continue to same for 2022 as well.

If you’re new to HDFC limit enhancement system, do check out below link (during day time) to check if you’re eligible for the offer.

This article will reflect all the Auto LE offers rolled out on HDFC Credit cards in 2022.

January 2022

Major Auto Credit Limit Enhancement offer has been rolled out during 1st week of Jan 2022.

  • The % of LE is different for different people. Most have got about 30-50% lift in the limit.

However, neither I nor most others I know have received the LE offer this time, probably because the limit is already high and also because it was recently revised, some 6 months or so back.

Ideally, those who didn’t receive the LE in 2021 or those who got it during early 2021 would have received the offer now.

Bottomline

It’s indeed interesting to see HDFC being so generous with the credit limit enhancement for 3rd year in the row. As a result of which, almost everyone I know is now holding HDFC credit cards with credit limit >5 Lakhs.

Did you receive a limit enhancement offer on HDFC Credit Cards in 2022 and if so how much % was that? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.Β

    My Infinia limit is standstill for the last 20-22 months.
    Nothing this time again for me as well to my newly on-board family members having paltry limits of 75K & 100K.
    One off-topic question: Is there any RP redemption to Amazon pay egv charges for mid or low segment cards?

    I received LE but by paltry 20% for my DCB to take it to 6 lakhs. Strange algorithm of HDFC they increased my LE to 5 Lakh and a LTF DCB when I used to spend around 50-60k annually on Regalia. After one year of DCB I spent around 5 lakh annually (max being 20% of limit in month) still got paltry 20% LE.

      Yes, that is the major negative point with Hdfc Credit Cards… What is the use of having even a 1 Crore Credit Limit if it does not show up on the total credit available mapped to a particular pan/aadhar?

    In Jan 2020 & Jan 2021 I got two credit card upgrade from HDFC. I was expecting same this year. But looks like it will not happen this year. 3-4 months back they increased my limit. So I believe that’s why I did not get LE.

    Hi Siddarth,

    It’s been 1.5 years but I’m still stuck on the same credit limit which I got my card issued for. How do I get this offer as the net banking site doesn’t show any such offer under credit limit section.

    The card is Milennia Credit card with 75k limit. My other cards have limit as high as 3.07 lacs and cibil score is 780.

    How can I get my limit increased as talking to customer care is useless. They ask for salary slips which I can’t produce because I’m in my final year of post grad.

    My regalia limit is 5L over last three years without any LE.
    My paycheck gives me eligibility for Diners black but due to low LE, couldn’t get the card upgrade.
    Is it a wise idea to cancel existing Regalia and apply afresh from DCB?

    Bit off topic query. I booked an Indigo flight via smartbuy (cleartrip). They charged about 3700 + convenience fee. The invoice given by smartybuy/cleartrip mentions the same value. However, the invoice sent by Indigo was for about 3200 only. Even the base fare is different in the 2 invoices. Now because, of this, when doing a reschedule at Indigo website, i am being asked to pay fare difference of 700 for a later flight, which ideally shouldn’t have happened. Anyone got any clue what’s happening here. For my earlier bookings, whenever i bothered to check the airline invoice, it was always the same amount (barring convenience fee) as the one shared by smartbuy.

    Reply
    1. Pranab

      That happens due to ‘Dyanamic Price’ (I think).
      During Travel sale in Nov, when I booked first ticket (Indigo), it costed me 7694 (after 500 discount).
      Immediately when I booked second ticket, it costed 8115 (after 500 discount).
      In Indigo site, it was showing 8615 for both the bookings (higher value in my case).

      Reply
      1. Ashish

        I understand dynamic pricing. In my case, there is difference in values for the invoices generated for the same booking by indigo and cleartrip, which seems wrong to me.

          I too faced the same.. for group booking Cleartrip get reduced fare from indigo but Cleartrip never pass the reduction to customer..

      This is happening mainly with domestic flight ticket. Raise issue with SmartBuy and their partner Cleartrip/Yatra providing both the invoice and you will get back the difference in amount.

      You can claim refund for the difference. Airline invoice is the final price plus convenience fee is what clear trip should have charged you. If excess, you can claim refund. It happened to me once and i got the refund after numerous follow ups.

      False. Have disabled the international transactions on my card and still received LE enhancement offer. Infact it’s a good practice to disable the card for international use when that’s not required to avoid any fradulant transactions which don’t require OTP authorisation.

      @Ramesh
      that’s absolutely wrong information
      Because it is RBI circulation to banks that they have to mandatoryly disable International transactions if customer did not travel in particular time duration. I always keep it disabled and I got limit enhancemt even for Amazon pay card along with hdfc.. I would advice everyone to disable it first as soon as you get your new credit card and for others by default it would get disabled (not sure all banks follow this)

      Even my wife is offered millennia to regalia but looking over the fact that regalia rewards when converting to cash credit comes to 20 paisa and millennia it’s 1 for 1. So millennia is gud.
      Even HDFC thinks regalia is premium .
      Only positive is lounge access, for which we have 3-4 other cards so millennia is gud and we have given a pass to regalia.

      Just one confusion remains, I was upgraded to infnia from regalia, would same happen from millennia to infnia or it would be millennia then regalia and then infnia πŸ˜’πŸ§

    ppl here are confused if they think high spends equals credit limit increase. keep your spends to maximum 20 % of present limit. Spending too high equals credit hungry in bank systems. A potential default risk. Its counterintuitive but that’s how the systems are set up.

    It is also mentioned that they are offering an upgrade to diners black card (on paid basis after 1 year).

    I have used my credit card recently only so I was surprised for this email.
    I called the customer care and they told me that HDFC is closing some varient of card including privilege card for all customers and only option for me to upgrade to diners black at paid bases.
