Above point already discontinued from current quarter itself, now there is no cashback and they are providing 12500 rewards points only.

Customers will need to redeem the cashback earned in the form of equivalent EDGE REWARD points in Jan’20 to Mar’20 period by 31st Mar’20, post which the same shall expire.
So we have to redeem 12500 reward points earned for current quarter by 31st march, else points will get expired.

Just had a talk with my RM, only direct cashback is getting discontinued, you will continue to recieve EDGE REWARDS points (12K) equivalent to INR 2.5K. I had already recieved 12k points in my ac for Jan spends.

This was discontinued last year itself. What’s new? They will not credit 12500 eDGE RPs as well now for spending 25k?

Wasn’t discontinued in last year. I already redeemed 12500 points in current quarter for my card as well as my dad’s card

EDIT: Last year they discontinued redemptions for cash. Now it seems they are discontinuing redemption as edge points as well

I meant 10% cashback offer. Are they stopping to give extra 12500 eDGE RPs effective April 1st?

If they discontinue cashback offer then this card is useless. Better to check for other bank debit card and transfer salary account to that account.

Bro, rewards are stopping completely. No 10% cash back or 12.5k edge rewards points on any spends on DC from next quarter onwards. You will get points for current quarter but need to be availed by March 31st.

So NO more Edge Points as well.

I don’t think they enforce it strictly. I have read in forums that even when balance was not maintained, downgrade wasn’t done. And cashback was also applicable.

HDFC Millennia Debit card is t next best option that I know of … But ..
It has many restrictions in terms of max cashback(400 per month), minimum txn amt(400), minimum cash back for redemption (400) , wait period of 90 days before cashback is available etc.. ..

EasyShop Platinum also gives up-to Rs. 750 cashback every month.

I think I have platinum card and i think it’s limited categories for which we get points… It was a pain to track cashback as support team would reject request saying  merchant code is not applicable for cashback  and so I stopped using it compltely ..

millennia DC, as per website,  gives cashback even for wallet loads so hopefully, cashback should be easier to receive as there’s no exclusion.

If you already have hdfc account, upgrade your debit card online. Fees may be applicable based on your account type.. once request is placed, you will get card in few days and old one will be cancelled.

I would recommend that you check card features, especially if  In case fees is applicable for your account, before you apply to ensure that you will able to avail benefits.

I have 3 axis priority debit cards at my home.
Used to pay my credit card dues (on cred) with these to get assured 30k annually. (2500 per card per quarter)
Please suggest a good alternative @indiansoul @A2Zdeals @sardasa

@cm4444 apart from HDFC Millennia, you can also check DCB elite DC. That has 1.6% cash back upto 2k per month and 20k per year ..

They down graded 3 accounts of family to classic and charged Rs590 as fine for not maintaining min bal of 10k in classic a/c. In fact I came to know about downgrade after charges are levied. No email or SMS after conversion to classic. Even hey issued new DC which never reached me but visible in net banking.
(1-2 months before downgrade)There was an email for all 3 accounts to maintain 2lacs min balance for a particular period of 30 days and I ignored it assuming they are not strict about AMB.

Had to redo KYC to upgrade back to priority.
Anyways now Priority Debit card is useless except for lounge access which I am not interested in.
