Targetted: HDFC Bank Double Points for Credit Cards

I hope this is not too late for the shoppers in their Holidays, but I just heard of it last evening too! HDFC Bank Credit Cards is offering Double Reward Points for the holiday shopping season for select members, subject to a minimum spending requirement being put in place. Here is all about HDFC Bank Double Points.

For instance, I got a promotion which offers me Double points if I spent INR 36000 on the card during the period December 16, 2017, to December 31, 2017. The maximum number of double points you can earn is capped at 2000 RPs.

  • Citi Prestige: 78 Citi Prestige Points => 312 Miles
  • HDFC Bank Diners Club Black: 260 Reward Points (Not 2X points because not INR 36000 spend)


You need to check your promotion and see if it works for you. Mine asks for a big spend which I might have given them had it been earlier in the month, but on the last leg of the promotion, not really!

  1. I got a sms of this offer last week..but I was offered 3x . But there was no mention of 2000 cap on reward points. The call centre was clueless. I wrote an email to their cs but they also are not sure if there is an upper limit on 3x.
