HDFC Targeted Offer: Get Rs. 5000 Voucher based on Spends

By | February 15, 2019

It’s been more than ~2 years since i got a spend based offer on HDFC Credit Cards. Finally i got one on my HDFC Diners black credit card for January 2019. Unfortunately that email only said i need to spend Rs.X amount but didn’t say what voucher I’ll get.

This time though, it came with proper format of spend Rs.X to get Rs.Y Voucher from the set of brands. Here’s a quick look into the offer,

Rs.5000 Voucher Offer Details

  • Type: Targeted, Spend based
  • Spend Threshold: Personalised
  • My Offer: Get Rs.5000 Voucher on Spending Rs.1L
  • Offer Period: 1st Feb – 28th Feb 2019.
  • Only those customers who received the communication is eligible for the offer
  • Fulfilment: May 2019
  • Effective Savings: 8.3% (5% as voucher + 3.3% as points )
  • Offer T&C

While 8.3% is an amazing reward rate, only issue with HDFC is the fulfilment. I hope it happens smooth this time. I’ll keep this thread updated on the same.

Bottomline

HDFC has one of the complex AI in place that doesn’t easily allow us to figure out what triggers these kind of offers. That said, I’m happy to see spend based offers to be back on HDFC credit Cards.

Looking at the previous interaction on this topic with other readers, I assume this has been sent for many cardholders.

Did you receive the spend based offer on HDFC credit Cards? Feel free to share your experience in the comments below.

    I got this offer in Jan on both my cards. Rs 30000 on one card and Rs 50000 on the other. But there was no mention of the value of the GV.

        I also hold two HDFC credit cards – Regalia First and DCB. Have been holding Regalia First from few years and then wanted DCB since I was eligible. Requested my relationship manager to retain Regalia First since DCB is not accepted everywhere. They increased my credit limit on Regalia First for a month and then gave me DCB with the proportionate credit limit.

    I received for my Diners Premium card. Spend 30k & get 3500 worth Flipkart/Lifestyle/Bigbazaar/Bookmyshow voucher. First came sms which had all details then came email too which did not have spends threshold.
    Last month too same offer had come. Problem is getting the credit of benefit from HDFC as they have habit of forgetting offers after sending.

    Typo : Offer Period: 1st Feb – 28th Feb Jan 2019.

    I received one in the month of November for Rs. 500 BookMyShow Voucher on spend of 25000 in one month. i did spend more than 45000 but never received that voucher. I still have that mail but I never inquired with HDFC.

    Though on an another instance in the month of December i received 2 Amazon vouchers worth Rs. 400 from HDFC, that too without any mail or offer.

        Even worse , spend 129000 from 1st to 28th Feb to get 500 INR BMS Voucher. !! And there is a long T&C for even getting that. Completely ignored the email.
        Feel this is the whole intent of the promotion. Encourage people with lesser spend by giving higher values vouchers. My spends have been high enough with HDFC. May be thats why I got such an offer.

      Offer of the century because you got a targeted offer from HDFC for first time ever and not because of the reward rate!! Right 😛

    I too got a 3.5k voucher for 30k spend.

    Do we need to phone them and request for specific voucher or will they be sending a default one? Any ideas

    I am not counting on this HDFC offer. I too received 30k/3.5k offer. They have mentioned that the voucher will be sent in May, that’s a 3 months waiting period!

    That’s enough time for HDFC to forget about this offer.

    I had a 5k BigBasket spend today, chose to go with my SBI Prime, getting a cool 3.75% return.

    HDFC needs to improve their game!

    Hey, I have a HDFC Moneyback card (please don’t roll your eyes). I had no idea its so bad..But suddenly I too got an offer on it – Spend Rs. 20000/- between 1st to 28th Feb and get a Rs. 2000/- voucher of flipkart/ lifestyle/big bazaar/ BMS voucher – Will get in May 2019. Reward rate of 10%.

    Actually HDFC has been good till now with offer fulfillment. They have this offer of Rs. 50000/- spends per quarter (on moneyback card) and you get a Rs. 500 voucher of Myntra/flipkart. I have availed offer in Q4 2018 and used the coupons. My redemption and freedom from this card will be this Feb offer and I then am gonna dump this card.

    Recently had applied for HDFC Black Diners Club credit card, I was been told that I need to have an existing relationship with the bank to apply for this credit card. I can’t imagine that I will have to open an savings account first!!!

    Reply
    1. GTMAX

      Even if this might not be true, not having a HDFC Savings account should not come in between you and DCB. Too precious to give a skip!! 😀

    2. Mrinal T

      Walk away with pride , savings account opening is the RMs way to fulfill his targets … if you bow down to opening the savings account , in future you may be pressured to maintain preferred/ imperia level relationship

      But if you really want the DCB card , apply via a branch towards end of the month , simply start walking away when opening a account is mentioned .. if RM is desperate, he will put the application is process without the savings account

    HDFC has sent offer on my Regalia card

    Their automated systems forget that such high spending for such poor reward can’t induce more spends

    Furthermore, it says that eligible spends are ‘retail spends.’ Does that mean that online transactions won’t be counted?

      Retail Spends covers all spends ie Online & Offline but excludes SmartEMI, Insta Loan, Insta Jumbo loan, Balance transfer etc.

    Hi Sid,

    I am thinking to apply for DCB, I see an option to apply online.
    As per HDFC site –
    Annual Membership fee – Rs. 5000 + Applicable TaxesWelcome Benefit of 5,000 Reward Points and renewal benefit of 5000 Reward Points (applicable only after the membership fee is realized and not applicable when the fee is waived off)* Terms & Conditions ApplySpend Rs. 5L in 12 Months and get Renewal Fee waived for next renewal year.

    As per BankBazaar –
    Joining fee is still 10,000 and it gets waived off if we spend 1 L in first 90days. Plus we get 1000 Rs Amazon voucher.

    I already have Regalia with limit of 6L+ and can manage to spend 5L easily on DCB with NPS and Insurance and regular spends. Now regalia also have milestone on 5 L and 8 Lac and return comes more then 3%.

    Should I go for DCB ? I don’t want to surrender Regalia card.

    Hi Siddharth,

    I believe you have a lot of cards and to carry and store them you must be using card holder and wallets. Can you review some. I was just looking for something compact and exclusive, ordered some from Amazon and returned as felt they aren’t up to the mark.

    Infinia cardholders are not eligible for this offer or probably card holders with high usage (already) are not receiving these offers.
    This offer(s) is certainly to promote spending on your cards.
