this is a serious issue guys beware do not buy multiple gvs of amazon or flipkart or else they will block your card and you won’nt be able to buy them again till you are died.

If that is the add on card than they have same number and other details, they both share the limit so Bank treats them as the same card, I don’t think will be acceptable but worth the risk I think.

BTW how they are buying multiple GV when only 5k per month is allowed per card ..??

5k max for amazon
5k max for flipkart

Others gv can be bought upto a limit .I.e max cap of 15k or 7k RP.

These guys must know something to bypass this limit and get 10x on amazon/FK gv.

Get your card replaced and your ban is lifted. No need to wait for next life.

So simple! Fyi the blocking is from HDFC, not gyftr. And if the issuing bank blocks, it is usually the account that gets flagged.

Customer care mentions that there is no issue at the credit card side since it works to purchase other vouchers like croma etc. Ppl have got information from gyftr that the card has been put under “risk”. It seems the ban is from gyftr side not HDFC.

People on the shared link talked about hdfc blocking it. Also of late there are quite a lot of banks flagging business use on personal cards

You are probably talking about smartbuy 5% offer but instant discount(like the recent instant voucher sale) does not depend on card only acc.

Getting payment failed error.

For what’s worth I purchased 2-3K worth vouchers from another acount in July/August. This would be sad if they blocked my Amazon gift card purchases for this small amount. I was actually trying to find another bank for my savings account. Seems like I will double the efforts and find a new CC also and take my purchase where ever it is appreciated.

Bhai can’t see any discount. Is it user specific?
10% discount plus 1% charges?
