Regalia is much better than Money back. Check if you are getting Regalia as LTF as HDFC is issuing this as LTF for some customers.
Spend based waiver is 3 lac per year.

Any specific advantage of regalia over money back?
As I used to get 500 voucher for every 50K spend on Money Back card in each quarter.
With Regalia I am not getting anything

Even at 3 lac spend it is very good card as you get 18 free lounge access and currency markup fee is very low. Also higher reward rates at smartbuy and rewards on point redemption.

Op uses only 1lac a year for that without LTF he/she has to shell out 3k for annual fees which is not justified

Off topic: Do we have an option in Regalia first to convert reward points against statement balance like money back card?

Yes you have that option but reward rate will be halved if redeemed against statement

Only if you think you can achieve at least 2500 rp per year, then you can upgrade to millennia. Miillenia card also has minimum spend conditions for 2.5x and 5x rewards. Check in detail and only then go for it.

Worst case scenario (considering 1% cashback on all offline/wallet reloads ) you need to spend 2,50,000 per year. The best case scenario (considering 5% cashback on smartbuy transactions) is 50,000.

Redeem Amazon vouchers sell it at 2% off and use that to pay credit card bill.

Thanks for your suggestion.. so as per your observation reward points to GV fetches maximum benefit.

If you have upcoming flight bookings, you can go ahead with flight redemptions. This will be slightly more than that for gv. But only 70% of the amount may be paid using points remaining 30% needs to be paid via card.
