HDFC SmartBuy is an online portal exclusively designed for HDFC Bank customers offering an extensive range of products and services provided by merchants across a variety of categories. The most commonly used cases of this portal can be listed as follows:

  • Air/Rail/Bus Ticket Bookings
  • Hotels Bookings/Holiday Packages
  • Car Rental
  • Affiliate Shopping
  • Instant Vouchers

All the merchant offers are dynamic and thus keep on changing occasionally.

Reward Rate

MultiplierInfinia, BizBlack Metal Edition Diners Black Metal Edition, Diners Black cardBizPower, Regalia, Regalia Gold and Diners Privilege

The above reward rates are the maximum redemption values and can be redeemed only on travel since these cards are travel-focused. Other than the above-listed cards HDFC Bank also offers a 5% to 10% cashback on their other credit cards and all debit cards as well. HDFC follows a completely different reward chart for TATA Neu Cobranded cards.

Customers shall get respective bonus reward points/cashback on their credit card account within 90 working days from the last date of the transaction month.

Monthly Capping

There is also a maximum capping on the bonus reward rate ie if you are utilizing a 5X multiplier benefit then you will get unlimited 1X reward points as per the base feature of your card but the rest of the 4X points will follow a daily as well as a monthly capping. Here I am listing a monthly capping for the same. Instead of calculating manually, it’s always a wise move to use the HDFC Savings Calculator.

Tata Neu Cards (Neu Coins)1,0001,000


SmartBuy is a good way to press that accelerator on your reward rate whether you are mileshunter or a cashback junkie. Buying Amazon Pay, Flipkart, BigBasket etc instant vouchers is almost a monthly ritual for all credit card users. Other than that there is some real value in booking flights and hotels via the portal even if don’t intend to burn your points since sometimes they tend to be cheaper than the offers available on the OTA websites directly.
