Guys I was buying multiple Gyftr Amazon voucher with my INFINIA card till Oct.. when one day I was not able to buy any voucher from Smartbuy. Inquired with HDFC bank and they had no issues with the card what so ever.. then finally I called GYFTR, initially they had no clue why I was not able to buy vouchers from Smartbuy, so they took my complaint. After following the complaint for almost a week they replied that " My card is blocked due to purchase of multiple vouchers from multiple accounts".
So all those saying here that the issue is with the bank is incorrect, as i have myself faced the situation. From then I hve stopped using multiple accounts in Smartbuy and for my old card I have blocked it and have re-issued a new card from HDFC and this one is working fine in Smartbuy.. only this time no tweaking with loopholes. Enjoy.

from how many accounts and times you bought before it got blocked?

Anything can be done once it is blocked, Will the limit be revised next month? or need to close HDFC card permanently

At least six accounts and I was doing it for more than three months.

Only option left.. you will have to block the card and re-issue a new card.
And the card limit will remain the same.

are they still blocking the cards? Now it clearly says: A customer (a combination of mobile number and card number) can buy a maximum of INR 5000 worth of Amazon Pay Gift Cards in a calendar month.

Not just that, practical experience during last gyftr sale tells that one card can only be used once during sale days irrespective of the amount.
