The festive season has just set in, and the promotions are beginning to roll out to get your wallet share. HDFC Bank is the first off the bat this time. They recently launched a promotion, which they are not advertising much so far, offering 5X points for offline spends, and 10X points in many a cases too.
HDFC Bank 5X Reward Points Through September 2019
HDFC Bank has launched a new promotion where they are offering the following points:
- Get 5X Reward Points on Apparel, Electronics, Jewellery, Grocery, Supermarket and Departmental Spends with regular HDFC Bank Credit Card transactions respectively.
- Get 10X Reward Points on Apparel, Electronics, Grocery, Supermarket and Departmental Spends with EASYEMI on HDFC Bank Credit Cards respectively.
The promotion is very very simple. You spend on your card account, and if the store/terminal is coded as Apparel, Electronics, Jewellery, Grocery, Supermarket and Departmental Store, you will get 5 Times the usual Reward Points! This promotion is valid on all instore Purchases Only, and there is a cap on the number of points you will earn, at 5,000 bonus points.
If you make an EasyEMI out of it, for all categories apart from Jewellery, there is a 10X points offer as well, capped at 10,000 bonus reward points per card.
The bonus points will be posted to the customer account 90 days after the promotion period ends. Corporate Cards, Commercial Cards, Dealer Cards, Distributor Cards, Value Plus Cards are excluded from the promotion. The promotion is valid for purchases made between August 15 and September 30, 2019. Check it out here.
HDFC Diners & Infinia Cardholders should be able to milk this for a 16% rebate.
I like this promotion. It is simple and hits on a simple point. People go shopping for the festive season. They buy clothes or electronics (or Jewellery?) during the festive season. So, you get a massive reward for buying from any merchant across India.
What do you think of the new HDFC Bank Credit Cards promotion for HDFC Bank 5X Reward Points?
