HDFC Bank Diners Club has been running a 10X promotion with select partners for a very long time now. The list of partners changed slightly in the past few months, but essentially, focuses on travel and e-shopping. Since April 2016, they have extended the promotion on a monthly basis (April and May), but I expect them to run this promotion through the rest of the year, since they announced that by mistake.
Anyhow, the latest is that they are now offering 10x points to those who shop on their websites till June 30, 2016. Here is a list of the partners:
- BookMyShow: Valid till April 1, 2017
- GoIbibo: Valid till March 31, 2017
- Cleartrip: No Current information
- Yatra: No Current information
- Flipkart: No current information
- SnapDeal: No current information
Here is the T&C on the HDFC Bank Diners Club website updated a short while ago:
Just as a recap, you earn the following points on your cards with the various variants on the merchants mentioned above:
- Rewardz: 3 points/INR 150 + 27 points/INR 150 bonus [Total 30 points/INR 150]. Monetary Value of INR 22.5 [15% cashback]
- Premium: 4 points/INR 150 + 36 points/INR 150 bonus [Total 40 points/INR 150]. Monetary Value of INR 30 [20% cashback]
- Black: 5 points/INR 150 + 45 points/INR 150 bonus [Total 50 points/INR 150]. Monetary Value of INR 50 [33% cashback]
That gives us another month with this card, and I hope this game continues to be played till eternity, or HDFC Bank just confirms in one go the entire year. This continues to be the most lucrative promotion in the current year.
