Rumors have been spreading that HDFC Bank might launch a new ultra-premium credit card above the Infinia Credit Card. While these rumors have been around for a long time, they have again received the attention of many. We have also seen screenshots of the HDFC Credit Cards Terms & Conditions file naming Galaxia Credit Card, which later turned out to be fake.

However, recently, the Smartbuy page of Infinia Reserve was leaked, where some of the card’s features were visible. Now, it looks certain that HDFC will soon launch this credit card, which will replace the HDFC Infinia as the bank’s top offering. Read on to learn about the latest information and developments related to the HDFC Infinia Reserve Credit Card.

HDFC Bank has added some information regarding Infinia Reserve on the Smartbuy website, stating that bonus points can be earned on this card without a limit via HDFC Smartbuy.

HDFC Infinia Reserve was due to be launched last year, but because HDFC bank was banned from issuing new cards, the card wasn’t launched. Now, some people can view the details of Infinia Reserve on the Smartbuy Website.

HDFC INFINIA RESERVE

Based on screenshots found online regarding the HDFC Infinia Reserve credit card, we found the following information related to the credit card –

  • As a welcome benefit, the card offers complimentary Taj Epicure and Club Marriott membership, which can be renewed next year based on your spending.
  • You can transfer the Infinia Reserve reward points to various hotel and airline partners at 1:1. This is better than the 1:0.5 transfer ratio offered by the Infinia credit card for various partners.
  • The reward rate on the Infinia Reserve credit card is similar to that of the Infinia credit card: 5 reward points per Rs. 150 spent with the card. You can also earn up to 10x reward points on spends at the HDFC SmartBuy portal.

Welcome & Renewal Benefits of HDFC Infinia Reserve

  • You can redeem your reward points against products/vouchers by various merchants at a 1:1 ratio, and there will most likely not be a 70% limit on the usage of reward points. You can also redeem reward points for various events like Wimbledon or F1 racing tickets.

Travel benefits of HDFC Infinia Reserve

  • As a welcome benefit, we will receive 25K RPs and 25K ITC vouchers, and on renewal, we will receive 25K Reward Points.

HDFC Infinia Reserve TrademarkAfter the trademark was registered, there was no news on Infinia Reserve until recently, when HDFC started updating its Smartbuy portal. Recently, the bank added a new code to the Smartbuy Beta website (used for testing purposes).

HDFC Infinia Reserve Code

The website’s code clearly states that you are an Infinia Reserve Customer and will be redirected to the Infinia Reserve Portal. From what we checked, if the phone number is associated with the Infinia Reserve card, the user will be redirected to another portal.

Bottom Line

In December 2020, the RBI restricted HDFC Bank’s launch of any services, including credit cards. When the ban was partially lifted in August 2021, HDFC relaunched some old credit cards, including the Infinia Metal Edition Credit Card, Millennia Credit Card, Freedom Credit Card, and Moneyback+ Credit Card, with more or less the same features as the older versions.

We expect the bank to launch the Infinia Reserve credit card sometime soon. There have been rumors circulating around the card for a long time, but now there is proof on the HDFC website that the Infinia Reserve card is coming soon. Keep checking this space. We will update this post as soon as any new information regarding the launch of the HDFC Infinia Reserve Credit Card is available.
