HDFC Credit Card Offer: 5X Points (or) JPMiles on International POS Spends

By | May 17, 2018

Looks like HDFC Bank is quite successful with their Diners Club 10X points on international spends that they’ve now extended it to other cards as well. However, it is not as rewarding as Diners Promo, but a very decent one. With this offer you get 5X points on rewards linked cards and 5X JPMiles on JetPrivilege cards. Here are more details:

Bonus Points on International Spends with HDFC Cards

HDFC 5X JPMiles on international spends

1. 5X Reward Points

  • Spend Duration: April 15th – June 30th 2018
  • Earning Cap: 10,000 Points
  • Limits: Only in-store POS spends. Not valid on Online spends.
  • Fulfilment: Bonus RPs will be posted within 90 days from Promo End Date

2. 5X JPMiles

  • Spend Duration: April 15th – June 30th 2018
  • Earning Cap:
    • Jet Signature/World and Jet Diners: 2500 JPMiles
    • Jet Platinum/Titanium: 1000 JPMiles
  • Limits: Only in-store POS spends. Not valid on Online spends.
  • Fulfilment: Bonus RPs will be posted within 90 days from Promo End Date

Bottomline

The 5X Reward Points offer is truly useful for those who’re travelling abroad in this summer holiday season. If you hold Regalia or Regalia First, you can save upto decent ~4% and with Infinia you save more than 13%. Overall a valuable offer!

The 5X JPMiles offer on Jet cards is not so exciting due to very low earning cap, still earn rate is very good – as good as 17% on Jet world/signature card. As Jet cards are usually excluded in most HDFC promos, its atleast good to see that its making the entry now. Hope they come up with better upper cap in future.

That being said, restricting to POS spends is a major drawback for many. Well, it is what it is, as the promo is targeted mainly for foreign travellers!

    Diners premium – How long do the 10x points for international transaction take to accrue in the account. I have been waiting for the past month. Should I send them a mail/tweet?

      Hi Shiv,
      As per offer statement, the bonus points can take upto 90 days to accrue.

      “Incremental Reward Points will be posted within 90 days from statement cycle.”

      So I guess you may want to wait a little longer.

      Yea they will. Just continue follow up through mail and phone. Ask them whether they have received the courier or not, quote the tracking number.

      Try to contact the person who collected your document and take number of his manager, tell him the issue and they will send someone just the other day to verify your address, once he gives a positive it will be delivered in within 5- 6 days.
