HDFC Bank has majorly modified the SmartBuy 10X programme over the months, limiting redemptions to 70% in points and 30% in cash for one, and also reducing the number of points you could earn from major retailers such as Amazon and Flipkart. However, from time to time, they do a push to engage with people and remind them of the good times we had for years together.
HDFC Bank has a new Extra Savings Day Sale going on at the moment, which is offering double to points on Amazon and Flipkart purchases than the usual on September 28, 29, 30, 2020. Having said that, if you choose to participate in the shopping spree, you will still be subject to the same maximum cap on your card, which is 7500 points for the HDFC Bank Diners Black and 15,000 points for the HDFC Bank Infinia. Additionally, on Amazon, you get a 10% Cashback, and Flipkart purchases get a 2% cashback when you shop via the Smartbuy portal.

Also, Travel bookings have always been a great way to earn 10X points with the HDFC Bank cards. There are added sweeteners to those as well, this week, such as a 10% discount with these promotion codes.
As the credit card spending season comes back with the festivities, expect more of these to come your way.
