i m planning to take one hdfc card , but can’t decide which one to take.

my requirements

* can afford joining fees upto 1000 for first year, it will become LTF anyways after fee transaction

* i will buy 2-3k Amazon gv per month

* 2k other expenses on recharge,dth

fuel surcharge waiver doesn’t matter i don’t use cc on petrol pump

don’t book hotels or flight ticket so this is important factor while redeeming points

hdfc cards have limited Cashback per month also in various Spends


so what variant will be most rewarding for me

i have looked up dinner rewardz, regalia first, freedom, Bharat, millennia

can’t decide kindly help

Diner and regalia RP cannot be redeemed for cash.
I dont have any idea about freedom.
Bharat’s RP can be redeemed for cash but i think the redemption can be done after earning 3000 RP which would be really hard considering your spends.
Millennia has good cb rates but you need to do minimum ₹2k txn to get any cb.
With spending of just 5k per month i don’t think there is any good option available for you in hdfc especially from the rewards point of view.
I think icici apay card would be much better choice for your needs.

Yes, but which gv is worth it.
P.s. i don’t have dcb or infinia so i don’t get 33.33% cb, keep that in mind.

Just for 5k monthly expense, better to get any entry level credit card from HDFC. Millennia should suit you.

Regalia’s default reward rate is 1.3% which you can use for buying flights and hotels on SmartBuy. If you want to redeem rewards for cash, the rate reduces to 0.65%. However the best way to use HDFC Regalia on Amazon and Flipkart is Smartbuy 10X offer where reward rate goes as high as 13%.

Then you should take Diners card which may get upgraded to Diners Black/Infinia in future.

I was also offered hdfc Regalia first & Millinnia card. May be Diners also…

Now confused which one to choose from. Already have amex mrcc, yes prosperity edge.

Somehow i m not getting icici amazonpay due to technical problem.
Was thinking about flipkart axis & now any of above hdfc card…

This 10 times RP offer is always there or some time only? With Regalia first, diners rewards, cm redeemption rate is how much? Apart from hotels, flights, what can we redeem for?

& importantly do they give RP/CB for NPS load? @rogerthat
