HDFC Bank has taken everyone by surprise with an incredible offer wherein HDFC Bank Infinia and Diners Black cardholders can redeem reward points for e-vouchers at 70ps per point instead of the usual 50ps per point.
This offer is as simple as that and is only for 3 days. Here’s a quick look at the offer:
- Offer: Redeem points for vouchers on 1:0.70 INR for vouchers
- Offer period: 1st October to 3rd October 2021
- Detailed Offer T&C
While this is certainly a surprise news for most, don’t forget that we may soon be getting the ability to redeem 1:1 for Apple products and Tanishq vouchers with the Infinia Metal Card. (Maybe even on a regular Infinia, or at least relatively easy to upgrade from plastic to metal).
So if you are an Infinia cardholder, you may need to think about it and redeem accordingly. And we don’t even know about the “refresh” of Diners Black cards (as a part of the current HDFC card re-launch move), which may also include this 1:1 advantage. Most not, but there are chances as HDFC treats both the cards on equal footing in most aspects.
To redeem, you need to visit the HDFC SmartBuy portal, select your card under privileges and redeem accordingly.
I did a trial redemption for 10K Amazon voucher and it works smoothly. I was surprised to see the voucher delivered Instantly. As you may know, it usually takes 3-5 days.
In short, getting excited and redeeming all the points in your kitty at 70ps is a better “no”, especially if you are an Infinia cardholder.
