Apple’s iPhone, iPad, MacBook Pro and Watch products will come with cashback up to Rs 10,000 for customers who use the HDFC Debit and Credit card to make these purchases. The cashback offer is up to Rs 10,000 in case of the iPhone X and details are currently listed on the iStore India website. iStore is one of the authorised Apple resellers in India and users might not find this offer listed on e-commerce stores like Flipkart, etc. Gadgets360 first reported about the HDFC cashback offers.

It will be applicable on HDFC Bank Credit Card EMI, HDFC Bank Debit Card EMI and HDFC Bank Consumer Durable Loan transactions on purchase of iPhones, MacBook, Apple Watch and iPads. However, this is not valid on HDFC Bank Corporate Cards.
The website says the HDFC cashback offer will work on transactions “made using Brand EMI option on Pine Labs terminals for Credit Card EMI and Debit Card EMI.” It also adds that if your transaction is eligible for cashback, this will be printed on the charge slip itself, though the actual money might be credit to the account later.
