Nice share. I just got the SBI Prime Card and rejected by diners club(no reason given). Anyway VU as nothing beats Diners Club(other than Amex) and maybe they will give this one as they just launched it.

The benefits look similar to the Diners Premium card that was available earlier. Looks like they have just changed the name to Privilege. One thing that has surely changed is the lounge access for add-on cards too. That wasn’t there till last month

Comparing Regalia and Diners Club Privilege
Reward Rate: Diners Club Privilege > Regalia
Acceptance: Regalia > Diners Club Privilege
Lifestyle Benefits: Diners Club Privilege > Regalia
Milestone Benefits (On spending Rs. 5 Lakhs): Diners Club Privilege (2.55% + Annual Memberships) > Regalia (1.3%+1%=2.3%)

Definitely Diners Club Privilege is better than Regalia.

Well it’s definitely better than Diners Club Premium owing to following facts:

  1. Complimentary Annual Memberships
  2. Golf Privileges
  3. 2X rewards on dining (rumoured to be on weekends only)
  4. Monthly Milestones
  5. Low forex markup of 1.99%
  6. 12 lounge access (domestic and international together) for primary as well as add-on card member

For existing DCB customers also, will be applicable at the time of renewal if spends are over 8L.

And if you want to avail now, upgrade(?) by paying Rs. 5,000. Not sure what’s the logic behind this. HDFC wants to convert all life time free members to become paying members by luring them with complimentary annual memberships.

How to get this card? I am already having one Jet priviledge card with HDFC now which is of no use now.
Is there any benifit like amazon voucher or anything I can get for applying this.

For upgrade from existing HDFC CC , you need to have good available limit on your existing card. How much is your existing card limit?

Also, how long have you held that card?

If you have RM in HDFC, check with them.

Yes, that might be the thought process.

Also, it is possible that hdfc bank may want to stop SmartPay after December and so have introduced new benefits to retain existing and get new customers.

I would suggest to wait for few months and not to give up existing free membership for these benefits.

Reward rate for Privilege is 1.3% or it is 2.55%?

Want to add that similar milestone is also applicable for Diners Black taking the rewards to 4.78% (3.33% + 1.25%).

Monthly Milestone Benefits:
All HDFC Bank Diners Club Black Credit Card holders ( Exsiting and New ) can select any 2 monthly vouchers amongst Ola Select membership or BookMyShow or TataCLiQ worth Rs. 500 every month on spends of Rs. 80,000.
