How to redeem IDFC FIRST Bank Credit Card Points?

IDFC FIRST Bank has dedicated a rewards portal for the redemption of reward points known as the Poshvine Reward Portal. When a credit cardholder has accumulated decent reward points in his account, he can easily redeem them on the Poshvine Reward Portal. Generally, the IDFC FIRST Bank Credit Card Points do not have an expiry date but even then still the cardholders should go through the terms and conditions page on the bank’s website to have a clear knowledge once before initiating the redemption process.

The points so earned can be redeemed in 2 different ways – Through Online mode or Through Offline mode.

Online Mode

Redeeming the reward points through online mode is the most easiest and smooth way of redeeming reward points. The points can be redeemed anywhere and at anytime. You can follow the below-mentioned steps to redeem the reward points –

  • Visit the official page of the Poshvine Reward Portal.
  • Login to the portal using your registered id and password.
  • Once you have arrived on the home page, click on the ‘Redeem Points’ option.
  • From a vast variety of products and vouchers available on the website, select the vouchers of the stores where you would like to redeem your reward points.
  • Start adding the vouchers to the cart.
  • Punch in the number of reward points you would like to use against the vouchers.
  • Now proceed to ‘Checkout’
  • Mark a tick on the box mentioned against the ‘Terms and Conditions’ and click on ‘Redeem’ to complete your purchase.
  • For the purpose of redemption, 1 Reward Point = Rs. 0.25

Once your redemption order is confirmed, the cardholder will receive the vouchers on the mobile number and e-mail id that is registered with the bank.

Offline Mode

For the applicants who do not use net banking or mobile application, the cardholders can redeem the reward points through offline mode as well. You can download the Reward Redemption Form from the IDFC FIRST Bank’s website. Take a printout of it and fill in all the required details. Finally, mention your name and date on the form and put your signature on the form. You can now post the filled form at the address mentioned on the form itself.

Additionally, you can also call on the customer care number mentioned on the backside of the credit card number and ask the executive to guide you regarding the redemption process.

Things to remember

  • The reward points that the cardholders earn with the IDFC FIRST Bank Credit Card keep accumulating as and when you make transactions using your credit card. As in the case of other credit cards, the reward points earned with IDFC FIRST Bank Credit Cards do not expire. They keep on adding to your account and you can redeem them whenever you feel like redeeming them.
