HDFC Bank Diners Club 10X Rewards for June 2021 now includes Swiggy

We have written extensively about the HDFC 10x points. HDFC Bank Diners Club 10X Rewards were my favourite kind of reward currency primarily due to some offbeat transfer partners they provided in India. The transfer partner list went away in 2016, but still, I look at it as a 16-33% cash back card, with all the cashback going towards travel at least in my case.

HDFC Diners 10X Rewards

The list of 10X partners frequently gets updated. The focus has been on travel & e-commerce. 10X rewards were changed during the pandemic, with the HDFC Bank Diners Club 10X being removed altogether on Partner brands for the HDFC Bank Diners Club range of credit cards. However, HDFC Bank Diners 10X on Partner Brands returned in October 2020. In May 2021, HDFC Bank added CRED as a partner for their 10X brands.

  1. There are 4 categories on Swiggy App..
    1. Restaurants
    3. Meat corner.

    I guess 10X will be applicable only on Restaurant s and Meat since they qualify as “Food”. Not sure about Meat.

    • @Krishnakumar, there are different categories you see per city. To be on the safer side, only the restaurant delivery should be interpreted as ‘food’ I believe.

  2. Tnc says only applicable for more than 300rs on swiggy. Might make sense to update the article with that info. Also it’s only valid on food and not genie, instamart, etc.
