I have around 30K worth of HDFC Diners points which would be reduced on 15th Aug. Let me know any trick through which I can convert them to cash / extend it.

Already did a lot of Recharge for myself and friend at discount.

One small doubt, can I generate a voucher of the total amount of points I have (to consider the points that got added after statement date), or do I have to generate a voucher of only the points given on website. What happens if I generate for more? @@@[email protected]@

It will allow to redeem only points generated until last statement

Shouldn’t they change the number of points based on value similar to how they change it when they upgrade cards? It’s pretty bad that the value of already earned points is being lowered.

This is usual whenever there is a card devaluation, bro. But you can try your luck/negotiation with customer support.

Just wondering – if somebody gets upgraded from Premium to Black on say 14th Aug 2017:

1 Will his points get devalued..? https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_confused.gif https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_confused.gif
2 When exactly will his points expire: 2 Yrs from 14th Aug’17 OR 2 yrs from respective dates points were earned on the old variant..? https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_confused.gif

What say…Time and Timing create great mysteries and confusion..Isn’t it!! https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_lol.gif

Hdfc perspective :

They had put info abt devaluation wef 15th Aug on their website sufficiently in advance…

They are well within their legal rights to ‘devalue the value of each point’ anytime though preferably with advance intimation… This parallels closely with how banks reduce home loan interest rates for new customers while continuing to charge old customers higher rate largely by playing on the “spread” rather than reducing “Base Rate”… Point being that all this is possible due to the structuring of the offer and very much allowed legally and very much known to and agreed by customers contractually… 🤔

Customer perspective: It would have been better if they had intimated in advance thru mail notification as well…

But what was dissapointing was the way they handled the Recharge Options i don’t think there was any intimation for that https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_cry.gif

People are free to challenge what they think or believe to be unfair… that’s why courts and forums exist-and rightly so!! https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_cool.gif

Observation: Courts usually go by evidence, logical reasoning and contractual agreements… bu their judgments sure can potentially influence future policies and contracts…? https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_confused.gif

Btw, convincing people is difficult-and typically take significnat time, energy and investment… So personally i believe in and suggest picking up pr pursuing battles only which are worthwhile and with odds staked largely in favor of us…:)

T: Must take lot of risks and battles in life…but only the right ones and only as much as we can handle!!

Does anyone know what is the validity of reward points? How with recharge and movie ticket redemption gone, there’s very little scope to use reward points.

1 HDFC Diners Black:

“Reward points validity Reward points are valid only for 3 years from the date of accumulation. ex:- if you receive reward points in May 2015, same will expire in May 2018.”
