Hi

I don’t have any fuel card and i have applied for HDFC credit card and is eligible to 2 cards, Now i am confused whether to opt for Millennia or India Oil card.
For online shopping, i already have icici amazon pay & Axis bank Flipkart card.

Kindly suggest

Thanks.

Most of the fuel cards are just trash; they have 2 major limitations: 1st is that the monthly max cap is pretty low, take HDFC IndianOil as example, the max cap is 150 only (250 in first 6 months); 2nd is that it’s bounded to a particular oil company, so you can use this card only on IndianOil pumps only, and that too the card swipe machine has to be supported, which many times gets messed up.

Better take Millennia and enjoy your shopping spree. For fuel, if you really really want one and if your monthly fuel expenses is like 5K+ then you “may” go for SBI Octane (higher cap, but pretty high annual fee), or RBL Travel Easy (RBL/BajajFinserve has the worst customer care though).

Forget fuel cards bro, I’m regretting having icici HPCL coral, all fuel cards are same. Keep the number of cards less by not opting for a fuel card.

would suggest to initially opt for Indian oil make it lifetime free by spending 30k in 90 days and upgrade it to millennia later if not seem worth. plus1🏼 you might also get better limit on Indian oil compared to millennia initially.

No you’ll not get.. since platinum dc bill payment benefit is limited to hdfc portal.. you can use cred(pm me for referral) and get flat 250 cashback on first bill payment.. post that you’ll get some scatch cards for bill payments depending upon the amount you pay.. it’s very less but still better than nothing at all

whichever card you choose, take maximum possible free add on cards. They are very valuable during offer times.

HDFC add on cards is useless as the card details are the same

For Indianoil, citibank is the best. No capping plus no need to be swiped on citibank machines, any machine will do. They have mapped pumps name in the system, you get approx 2.6% cashback as points, plus no surcharge on fuel transactions

Not sure how you are getting the Reward points for such transactions as credit card payment does not fall in Mechant code 4900 as mentioned in the T&C of the debit card.
