Membership No
Earlier when it was Jet Privilege, it was Jet FF No. Guess HDFC is still using the same terminology. However, do check the net conversion ratio before going for conversion.

I have calculated and I feel conversion of hdfc reward points to InterMiles is kinda loss(even if 40% bonus miles are credited as per an ongoing promotion). Any particular reason you are converting them?

Yes, in my card it is 1:1 conversion + bonus. While same is  50% value on smartbuy site

Yes but 1 intermile value is not equal to 1 reward point value,right? For example, 5800 intermiles is 1000 Amazon voucher but in smartbuy site it would be around 2900(considering regalia card which has 50% value on smartbuy). Why would you give up on your points then.

You can only use 70% of the total amount as points. Remaining you need to pay by cash. So, Roughly 14000 points for 7000 rs and 3000 you need pay by cc.

For intermiles, the points required for flights depends on the starting point and destination. I had checked for Hyderabad-Goa for 1 ticket. It was 8000 points + rs 1100 convenience charges. Hyderabad to goa ticket average is 3500. It’s better to precheck and then go for conversion.

bro I want to buy a 3.5K ticket in future using intermiles 10K points? Advisable? or should I just buy amazon gv using the intermiles?

How much will I have to pay in total on using intermiles for flight ticket (1100 is too high convenience fees)?

The charges charged by intermiles is route/flight specific and does not depend on flight cost. But, as per my experience if the flight amounts to 3500 and redemption cost is less than 10000 miles, I’d suggest purchasing the flight ticket through intermiles. If  you want to know the exact cost ib me with the route and date of travel, I can help you with that.
