On January 27th, MakeMyTrip launched a new travel rewards product, the HSBC MakeMyTrip Signature Credit Card. The launch party was a stylish affair as Farhan Akthar did the honours alongside our own in-house celebrity (and CFO), Mr. Rajesh Magow, who added to the glitterati.
It was an action-packed event to launch a shining feature-packed credit card, a card that gives travellers the opportunity to save for future travel while they shop for just about anything under the sun. So while a customer shops for whatever he/she pleases, they simultaneously gain points at a rate of 4 points per Rs. 100. A 10-point/Rs. 100 reward is awarded to HSBC customers who buy travel services from MakeMyTrip. If the bill (on buying MakeMyTrip’s services) rings Rs. 50,000 by any chance, 15 points are awarded for each Rs. 100 transaction customers make over and above.
This co-branded HSBC card is now available in two categories, Platinum - for Rs. 499 - and Signature – for Rs. 3,499. Card holders, on initial payment, will get discount vouchers for flights, holidays, and even an Anniversary Gift, which includes domestic flight ticket vouchers, and thousands of extra reward points, if your annual bill exceeds over a Rs. 1,00,000.
This is the product we’ve all been waiting for. Flights, trains, holidays, cabs, buses, cruises, it offers all travel services in a single unit. Unlike other travel cards that let you buy just flights, or just holidays, etc. So if you’re a frequent traveller, this is the thing for you!
