If you’re a HDFC credit card customer, you might have felt this pain when looking for EMI/loan offers on your card. HDFC has 3 different type of credit card loans namely Smart EMI, Insta Loan & Insta Jumbo loan which i’ve covered in detail here. However, its not a standard credit card benefit, rather it changes every month based on your CC usage pattern.
Despite spending a LOT on my Business Regalia, the so called premium card, i NEVER used to get any EMI/loan offer for about 1 year or so. This made me curious to figure out what HDFC is looking for to provide their customers with offers.
While i wasn’t chasing EMI offers, HDFC offers one of the best interest rates for those who’re in need of it. Also, i’ve been asked over and over again by readers as to how the EMI/loan offers being triggered on HDFC cards, so here’s the solution.
#1 How to Get HDFC Credit card loan Offers
I started my Research with 6 HDFC credit cards to decode HDFC’s artificial intelligence behind this and i was pretty successful 😉
Lets cut the talk and get right to the point.
-> The secret is: Spend on SHOPPING sites
Yes, as simple as that. HDFC favors you if you’re a shopping freak for some reason or other. They don’t like you spending on random business expense, no matter how big it is. I’ve never got any offers until i finally applied this concept of “shopping” and you know what, i got the EMI offer within 10 days after applying the trick.
Not just that, i was pretty successful in even triggering Insta Loan offer on my card later. While we may think these as “tricks”, its all a common sense for banks.
#2 How to Get Auto Credit Limit Enhancement
It provides methods to enable the Credit Limit enhancement offer on your HDFC Credit card without any Income Proof (or) request to bank. The method is completely automated and works on itself. Tested with Moneyback Credit Card and the full details of the research is available in the premium content.
- This is something that deals with Insta Loan
- Utilization ratio <30% required for this to work.
