  4.  Once the verification is done, your Amazon account will get complimentary three month Prime membership.
  5. It is important to note that you will be charged Rs 999 for a year automatically after the completion of three months complimentary Prime membership

HDFC Bank credit card users have confirmed receiving such messages on their mobile number on public forums. They have also been able to successfully activate the three-months complimentary Prime membership.

If you already have Amazon Prime membership, there is no way to add an three additional months via this offer. In the terms and conditions, HDFC Bank notes that the user should not be an existing Amazon Prime member. Please note that this offer was extended to customers a few months back as well.

If you received an SMS or email with this offer from HDFC Bank with an unique URL, now would be the right time to act. The offer is valid only till November 30th and is not transferrable. It is also not redeemable for cash and cannot be exchanged.
