Diners Club now offering 10X Reward Points on MakeMyTrip Hotels

Last month, I wrote about HDFC Bank Diners Club Credit Cards extending the 10X promotion for Partner brands. This promotion offers ten times the usual points applicable when you spend with your HDFC Bank Diners Club Credit Cards (only!) on the following brands:

This list is valid from April 8 to June 30, 2019. For Treebo, only online transactions get 10X points, not pay at the hotel. Uber transactions done abroad also count for 10X Rewards. Purchase of gold and Gift Vouchers on TataCLiQ is not eligible for 10X offer. Also, only package bookings are available for 10X on SOTC and flight, or hotel bookings alone aren’t eligible.

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 is INR 9 [6% cashback]
  • Premium/Club Miles: 4 points/INR 150 + 36 points/INR 150 bonus [Total 40 points/INR 150]. Monetary Value is INR 20 [13% cashback]
  • Black: 5 points/INR 150 + 45 points/INR 150 bonus [Total 50 points/INR 150]. Monetary Value of INR 50 [33% cashback]
  • Here is the cap installed on the number of points you can earn per statement cycle this year for using partner brands.
    • Rewardz:  2,000 points
    • Premium/Club Miles: 5,000 points
    • Black: 25,000 points

There is another promotion, which is offering up to 25,000 Reward Points for those who use the Smartbuy portal of HDFC Bank. This promotion is valid across all personal credit cards of HDFC Bank which offer Rewards Points as a currency.

Now, perhaps to maximise the business from Hotels due to the Summer Vacations, HDFC Bank Diners Club has also added MakeMyTrip Hotels to the list of partners who get you 10X the usual Reward Points. Essentially, this means you get a 33% cashback on your hotel stays booked with these cards, as long as the Card is the top-end variety (Diners Black).

HDFC 10X MakeMyTrip for Domestic Hotels

Three coupon codes have been published by MakeMyTrip Hotels to get 10X points for Domestic Hotels.

HDFC 10X Makemytrip

Like you can see, you get up to 33% savings. Here is the list of the select hotels which get you 10X Reward points:

  • HDFC10X1: Gets you 10X points and up to 15% Reward Points. No published list.
  • HDFC10X2It has some very excellent luxury hotels such as The Oberoi, Bangalore, Trident, Chennai, Trident, Cochin, Khyber, Gulmarg and many other luxury properties.
  • HDFC10X3It has many chain hotels such as Taj Fort Aguada, Goa, a lot of Marriott Hotels, Novotel Hotels and many other luxury properties.

HDFC 10X MakeMyTrip for International Hotels

For international hotels, however, you don’t need any codes. You can proceed to pay with your HDFC Bank Diners Club Credit Cards and get up to 30% discount and 10X Reward Points.

Bottomline

MakeMyTrip Hotels seems to be a great addition to the HDFC Bank Diners Club 10X Partner promotions, and I intend to try and use this promotion to maximise the 10X rewards in case I am headed to stay at any non-Marriott/Hyatt hotels shortly.

What do you think about the new HDFC 10X MakeMyTrip offer?

  1. hi, for international hotel its upto 30% instant discount plus 10X points.
    As there is no promo code needs to be applied, how to do get instant discount
    The Tnc states like that “This offer entitles every eligible user for an instant discount of up to 30% (pre-applied on the funnel) and 10X Reward Points on booking international hotels on MMT using HDFC Bank Diners Club Credit Cards”

    What does it means pre-applied on funnel.

  2. Hi.. it’s mentioned select international hotel.. how do we find out which international hotel will give 10x rewards on my diners black card

  3. I’m being offered regalia and diners club black . Which one should I go in for ?? What’s your take considering 10x is currently till 31st May as far as I know

  4. Why only for the stays at any non-Marriott/Hyatt hotels ? Is there any better offer for Marriott and Hyatt hotels ?

  5. Wow. You can also double-dip as MMT also has its own loyalty program: MMTBLACK.
    I convinced myself that the party is going to end soon, and delayed getting this card. But these are irresistible offers.

      • @ajay So this means you can earn 25000 points on spend via smart buy and additional 25000 points via spend on MMT in a given calendar month, hence maximizing 10X points accrual to 50,000 per calendar month?

  6. One interesting question. Can the international offer combined with any offer provided -by MMT- like entering mmt codes and paying with diners card.
