HDFC Bank Diners Club has been running a 10x Rewards promotion with selected partners for a very long time now. The current list of partners is the one that was put in place as of April 2016, but essentially focuses on travel and e-commerce. They initially put out a year long commitment to the promotion then they recalled it, and started to extend the date of the promotion by the month. Here are the announcements for April, May & June 2016.
Currently, they have announced that the promotion is valid through July 2016, but some partners have already announced their intention to go through the rest of the year with the promotion. Here are the details available at the moment:
- BookMyShow: Valid till April 1, 2017
- GoIbibo: Valid till March 31, 2017
- Cleartrip: Valid till December 31, 2016
- 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]
