HDFC Millennia Credit Card Review

HDFC Bank last year launched Millennia series of credit/debit/prepaid cards for Millennials and here we’re going to see a very detailed review of the HDFC Millennia Credit Card.

  • Launch Offer: INR 1000 worth gift vouchers on spends of INR 1,00,000 and above in each calendar quarter (first year only).
  • Launch/activation offer keeps changing with HDFC Bank, so check with the bank about the same while applying.
  • That aside, the joining/renewal fee waiver conditions are pretty good for the card of this range.
  • Note that HDFC usually gives most credit cards as First Year Free if you’re upgrading, and now during Diwali it seems they’re back with the Lifetime Free cards as well.

Reward Redemptions

  • 1 CashPoint = INR 1 (for stmt credit)
  • 1 CashPoint = INR 0.30 (for flight/hotel redemption)
  • Redemption requirement: Min. of 2500 Points (for stmt credit)
  • If you’ve followed all above rules to earn the rewards now you’ve another check-point to pass, as the minimum points required to redeem your points for statement credit is set to: 2500 reward points.

With this rule in place, combined with validity of points, hardly ~10% of the customers could actually redeem the points.

Now you know why you’re getting an “Upgrade” offer on net-banking from Clubmiles or other premium cards to Millennia!

As a part of launch offer you get Rs.1K voucher every quarter on spending 1L. Fortunately fulfilment of this reward is pretty fast than expected. It came within ~2 weeks of completing the transaction.

For the rewards, they have quite a list of brands as below, but as always Amazon voucher is the best and it was available for instant redemption.

I am using this card from June. Missed first quarter benefit but after than successfully claimed two quarter benefit of 1000 amzon voucher on spend of 1lakh. Reward point accumulated 4500 apart from smartbuy cashback.
Best for people having moderate spends. Buying Amazon voucher from smartbuy with 5% cashback and 5% smartbuy cashback is great.

Best is for statement credit. I guess 99+ tax would be charged for redemption.

Can you please clarify one doubt.
If I pay rent of 15k from NoBroker, I am eligible for 500(payzapp) +750(millennia) cashback and if I buy 15k Amazon Gift voucher do I also get 750(smartbuy) +750(millennia) or only 750(smartbuy) cashback?

Maximum millennia cashback for smartbuy is 1000. You will get maximum 750 cashback for millennia for purchase through smartbuy+payzapp on Amazon, Flipkart flight as Nd hotel bookings.

So if I pay 15k rent then I won’t get cashback for buying Amazon Gift vouchers?

And millennia cashback?

Millennia cashback is fixed 750 for shopping through payzapp and smartbuy. So you will not get any cashback if you have availed it for paying rent.

This card is the worst if you have multiple cards . 2500 is the min amt to redeem for statement credit . Also the points expire in 1 year

You will get payzapp CB using the code plus millennia reward point and 5% smartbuy cashback.
P.S- never tried bill payment through payzapp using millennia so not sure about smartbuy cashback but according to T&Cs one should get it.
