Targeted Spend Based Offers on HDFC Bank Credit Cards (May 2019)

By | May 29, 2019

This is my first spend based offer since late boarding HDFC Bank credit card in October 2017. Looks like the offer is highly personalised where some has received a choice among GV’s, whereas others have been given BookMyShow GV’s directly on reaching their target spends.

Here’s a quick look into the offers received on the HDFC credit cards in my family (me & spouse).

Offer Details

# My offer:

  • Offer: Spend Rs.1,18,000 with your HDFC Bank Regalia credit card and get voucher worth Rs.750 of your choice.
  • Duration: Spend between 1st May to 31st May 2019
  • Type: Spend based / Personalized
  • Fulfilment: 31 August 2019

Select vouchers from:

# Spouse offer:

  • Offer: Spend for Rs.5000 with your HDFC Bank credit card and claim your Rs.1,000 BookMyShow voucher
  • Duration: Spend between 05th May to 31st May 2019
  • Type: Spend based / Personalized
  • Fulfilment: 31 August 2019

Inference: Higher the spends on the card, higher the target.

What’s striking is the fact that though this targeted offer is for the month of May 2019, I have received it rather late (towards far end of the month). Also, the time period of this targeted offer is different.

What’s the offer have you received? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

    I got the offer very late (on 24th May) for spends Rs. 36,000 till 31st May and get Rs. 1500 BMS Voucher.

    As I got the offer late, plus I found Yes Bank Offer (of Rs. 2000 Amazon Voucher for spending 40,000 till 31st May) better Iam not trying to achieve it.
    Also, BMS BOGO on ICICI Coral makes HDFC offer less attractive.

    Looks like this targeted offer is more generous to those who have received BookMyShow offer. For others it’s ~ 1% extra.

    I didn’t get any offer on my HDFC Regalia card. My spends were very high from past 4-5 months.

      You already know the reason. Targeted offers avoid too high spenders or maybe nil spenders too.

    My wife received offer on 22nd in Diners ClubMiles. Rs. 500 voucher for 1 lakhs spends. I just completed spends today evening. Unknowingly I already had spend Rs. 49,000 in May which helped me a lot to achieve the target.

    HDFC has a horrible reputation of not delivering on their promises. They are yet to fulfill their promised spend based offer from Dec 2018. I’ve been following up with them since 2 months and till date they’re just saying they’ll get back in “7 working days”.

    I did get the targeted offer this time for 750 voucher, but I don’t think I have the energy in me to chase them all over again even (in case) if I do actually end up spending that much on the card.

    266000 spends for 1500 gv.. given the fact that the spends target is reasonably high, is it correct to infer that my upgrade chances might be higher too??

      It may have an effect, as it means you already are in high spends category. Still there are lot of factors at work for an upgrade, NRV and retail spends being most significant.

    I never get such target spend based offers from HDFC.

    Is there anything I could do from my end to get it activated?

    I am holding HDFC DinersClub – Club Miles card.

    I received a different offer. Make 4 transactions on Regalia First card between 1st to 31st May, and get Rs 250 Bookmyshow voucher. Received the offer on 24th. But the good part is there is no minimum spend per transaction.

    I got this spend based offer last year for my regalia and I was just fed up following it with bank since it was like 5000 bonus points if I spend 75k or something. It took 6 months or something for me to follow up and I don’t remember now whether I got it or not. Worst thing was bank would ask for the proof and if you don’t have they will not give anything . So please take screen shots at any cost or save your mail . By the way my 5000 bonus points for Jan 2019 is still due and bank has not yet credited as of today.
    I am hdfc customer from past decade and now I am just loosing
    Interest on the bank for this cheap practice.
    Is it possible to to get diners club black card LTF for preferred customers. I already got it approved but I am asking them to make it LTF. And as of today how is the usability in various POS machines across India?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Sid and Team,

    I currently hold HDFC Regalia with limit of 6.5L and contemplating on applying for HDFC Diners, but he says that I cannot hold for more than one HDFC CC at a time and that I have to close Regalia card and apply for Diners (according to my RM, I am eligible for Diners Black and my existing 40000 reward points on Regalia need to be redeemed before closing and cannot be transferred).
    Pls guide me if this is the right process and if ditching Regalia for Diners is a good idea (incl given that the cap of 5000 points for Regalia from 1st June on Smartbuy)?
    Thanks

      You dont need to spend the points they will be transferred to diners. These RM dont know anything, diners black is bettwr than regalia. Go for it. Dont close regalia instead apply for upgrade which will preserve your points.

    Yes, even i got the 5000 voucher but they didnt mention about for which month offer they gave it. Nevertheless on Saturday morning even MORE voucher was not there. But evening they added it. So maybe we can wait for a week before claiming.

    I never get any spend related offers from hdfc. I am holding a hdfc regalia card. Though one interesting offer i got most of the time is 4 months of interest free period on my card (normally jun to oct) where the credit card statement shows minimum amount due as 0. Any way to enable offers on email.
