Although Diners Club credit cards are not as widely accepted as their Visa or MasterCard counterparts, such attractive offers do make them an attractive proposition. The best part about the offer is, this offer is in addition to the already running SmartBuy offer on HDFC credit cards, which makes these Diners Club credit cards more rewarding than some of the Visa and MasterCard credit cards offered by the bank. HDFC Bank has also added some of the most popular merchants including Amazon, Flipkart and IRCTC to the list of partner merchants.
