HDFC Bank is in full swing rolling out jaw dropping offers in most spend segment after a long time. Here is one lucrative offer worth availing on Apparel, Jewellery and Insurance spends.
- Apparel/Jewellery: 5X Rewards (Min. spend per txn: Rs.5000 / Max Cap: 1000 RP)
- Insurance Spends: 5X Rewards (Overall spend: Rs.20,000 / Max Cap: 2000 RP)
- Offer Period: 19th Dec’20 – 31st Jan’21
So if you hold HDFC Diners black or Infinia, this gives 16.5% return on spend which is pretty generous for these spend categories. And you’ve more than a month to avail these offers.
Are you availing these 5X rewards on HDFC Credit cards? Feel free to share your experiences in the comments below.
Hi Sid, so to get max benefit on insurance which is 2000 points what is the amount we need to use the card for ??
Very small limits for DCB. Effectively 3X on insurance for 20k spend because of 2000 max limit. 6k for apparel and Jewellery.
Does NPS spend comes under insurance category?
Do NPS spends count as Insurance spends?
Also, does HDFC allow NPS tier 1 spends of 50 thousand on credit cards? I had read here before that there was some problem with NPS spends on HDFC credit cards
Check with the customer care team. NPS transaction comes under the “Government Scheme” category.
Regarding the 2nd query, there are customers who are misusing the NPS tier 1 spends and are doing high value transaction because of which there reward points are locked.
Sid, can share more details on the same.
+1. Please update if you find out.
This means the optimum spend is one txn of Rs. 7500, right? Thatll give a base RP = 250, and 4X = 1000.
Does apparel includes offline spends on fashion cloths?
Like Pantaloons, lifestyle etc…
I hope so.
This is misleading. Min spend is 20k and max cap is 2000 points, so it is not 5x for diners/infenia…more like 3x ..also not clear, if it comes under 7500 overall limit ?
Yes, for Insurance spends it’s not 5X for DCB/Infinia. But anyway, better than 1X.
If you meant 7500 for DCB, the limit is only for Smartbuy. Rest any offers are excluded from this offer.
This offer was there even last year. It is bonus 2000 RP which i got after 6 months. Is this 5x target based ? I did not get any mail on this. Overall 20k does it mean between dec and Jan 31st total insurance spend should be 20k?
Making payment on which apps qualify as Insurance spends that are eligible for this offer?
+1 What about policy bazaar or Aditya Birla?
What about Diners Club Privilege, what would be the optimum threshold for insurance, and what would be the effective reward rate?
Have been trying my luck to get HDFC Diners, but each time they say you need to have HDFC Bank account which I don’t have. Is there any other way out?
i have a diners club black card. Using it from last 1 year. Already accumulated and used 50000 points. Got compementary zomato pro, amazon prime that are used by me on daily basis. Their 10x reward offer is just amazing
How did you manage using 50k points in this Pandemic ? I have more than 1 lakh points accumulated and have no clue how to use it since covid is not gone yet.
Everytime I buy icici lombard insurance it comes as razorpay rather than icici lombard on statement.. though while transaction it comes as lombard (sms).
I am not sure if I should even expect any extra rewards
Is there an offer for 5X on insurance for February also?
