IDBI Bank Credit Card Reward Points

Shopping, paying utility bills, taking in a movie or play at the nearby theatre, or buying groceries – there is a whole lot you can do with your credit card. A credit card is a facility offered by banks and other financial institutions to facilitate quick purchases and pay for them later. A credit card eliminates the need to carry large amounts of cash. It also proves useful in emergencies such as accidents when you may have to remit a big amount to a hospital. IDBI lets you earn reward points each time you make a purchase using your credit card. Once you have accumulated a certain number of points, you can redeem them in exchange for a variety of gifts. Here is how the scheme works.

How do I earn reward points under the IDBI Credit Card Reward Points programme?

As a credit card holder, you can earn reward points depending on the type of card you have. The points are automatically credited to your rewards account each time you make a purchase of a certain minimum value. You can check your reward points balance through various channels including mobile, website, and phone banking. IDBI calls their reward points as ‘Delight Points’. You can use Delight Points and get discounts against airline or hotel bookings, purchasing movie tickets, and so on. The points are valid for a period of 3 years since they are accrued, so make sure to use them before the date of expiry.

You cannot use Delight Points for withdrawing cash from an ATM, purchasing Mutual fund, Insurance, or any other financial instruments nor can you can make any payments to Government, educational institutions or other political parties. In short you cannot use your IDBI reward points as a payment gateway.

You can however, select products from an approved list and pay for them using Delight Points.

How should I redeem reward points earned on my IDBI Bank credit card?

IDBI requires that you have a minimum of 1000 reward points in your account before you can redeem them. In case you are unable to accumulate the minimum required points, you can still redeem the accumulated points and pay cash against the remaining required points for your selected product.

You can use any of the following modes to redeem your IDBI credit card reward points:

1. Online Reward Points Redemption.

  • Visit the official website of the bank.
  • Activate your account if you have not already done so.
  • Then use your Customer ID – generated after the registration process – to login to your account.
  • Having logged into your account, select the Redemption Form and fill out the necessary details.
  • Pick an item from the redemption catalogue which you would like to purchase against your IDBI credit card reward points.
