Was expected. Earlier they stopped selling these gift cards and now corporate ones also discontinued. This option is better than gift card redemption.

Its better now !
As long as 10000 credit = 24k points
I.e 1 point = 40p+
Instead of normal 1 point = 25+

It’s about gold collection I. E. When one accumulates 18000/24000 points. Else redeem or for 25% value. Staright away without waiting. But maximum benefit of this card is in accumulating only.

Nothing wrong in expecting that the question to be asked here might have already been answered elsewhere, so consequently not wrong to try to take help of search engines as well.

Sorry for digging up such an old post. But I could not find this info anywhere..

Is only one option to be chosen from the list.

Like in the "New 24 carat Gold Collection "
• Good Earth Gift Card worth INR 13,000
• MakeMyTrip Holiday Voucher
• Statement Credit worth INR 10,000
• Bose XT Speakers

Will you get all those things or you have to choose only one?

I am also going to achieve 18000points in another 2-3months. I found that there is no benefit to redeem at 24K points as value is same. Earlier I did mistake and requested small points but overall good card to get some cash.

True. 18K points redemption is better than 24k milestone-if one is already decided and opting for statement credit… which is the best/recommended option (in addition to Amzn GV option, if one is comfortable with Amazon GVs-and it still being allowed)!! https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_cool.gif

Assumption: One is yet to reach 18k. One is considering decision on ongoing basis (no plans to close etc), and on like-to-like basis across yrs (E.g. First yr or one-time benefits like add-on card/joining /referral bonus pts ignored).

Btw, I personally have LTF variant…So if annual / renewal fee there for your card, it may also be taken into account while deciding …Of course, cash-in-hand (over GVs) and sooner-the-better (Time and Safety and Peace value of money) are also relevant-and imp-factors!! https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_cool.gif

@onlinework4all

If one has crossed 18k & renewal is away its better to reach 24k so that reap maximum benefit. As reaching 18k again will be difficult next year onwards
In first year one earns 18k with help of 12k monthly bonus + add-on cards + joining bonus + referral bonus etc. etc. many of which wont be there in 2nd year so earning will be 12k bonus + 1k normal points
So better to reach 24k & redeem for max benefit
