An article without enough information. Most cards have maximum cap on rewards and cashback. You need to give an illustration explaining the spend amount and what we receive back.

I have standard chartered super value titanium card. It gives cashback for all fuel expenses. If I spend Rs.1000 for petrol, then 1% fuel surcharge will be added and shown in statement. In few days, this surcharge and some GST gets waived. And Rs.40 cashback will reflect in rewards statement. They advertise it as 5%, but it’s effectively 4% cashback for us.

And so many changes to their terms over past 3 years.

Annual maintenance Rs.750 + GST will be charged and waived later if your annual spend was greater than 90k.

And maximum cashback is limited to Rs.200 per month.

anyone have hdfc bharat card? can we use in any petrol bunk and swipe any pos machine?

Deal Cadet Deal Cadet

I have it too. But it’s not issued anymore. Yes, you can use it in any petrol bunk. Don’t get confused with the name Bharat. It gives cashback for all petrol bunks like Indian oil, HP, etc.

I have both HDFC Bharat card and Standard chartered super value titanium card. I would say, HDFC Bharat card is better than standard chartered card. HDFC Bharat card gives 5% cashback after waiving fuel surcharge but standard chartered gives effectively 4% cashback as they include surcharge waiver as part of cashback. Annual fee 500 waiver is 50k spend. But in standard chartered, it’s 750 waiver on 90k spend.

But there are limitations. Cashback is in form of reward points. One reward point is equivalent to one rupee. Maximum cashback per month is only Rs.150 for fuel category. This restricts our monthly fuel spend to Rs.3000 only. You can redeem only after accumulating more than 2500 points. Other than fuel and utility bill payments getting 5% cashback, there will be no reward points for others.

Bro could you please answer to these questions
Do we need to swipe on any specific pos machine only?
Is amazon GV available in rewards catalog? or any other useful GV like flipkart, big bazar etc
In website, mentioned after paying fee, they will issue rs.1500 worth rewards points. Is it for first year only or for every year. Because i can’t spend rs.2L every year, But gst amount is ok for me, If they issue rs.1500 worth rewards points every year.

Cards insist on swiping on their machines only. So no use of other bank swipe machines are used . Standard chartered has some advantages

Why axis iocl not in the list? It gives 4% cashback apart from 1% fuel surcharge waiver on iocl fuel stations which is more than all 5 cards mentioned. Annual fee of 499 plus GST is waived off on spends of 50000 which is not high. Also Axis Bank allows 3 cards at same time so no problem of closing other cards. I currently have this card and I use it at COCO IOCL Station using hdfc machine and reward points are regularly added without any problem.

SBI BPCL cashback doesn’t seem to be working on all BPCL outlets. Check with small amount first and see if you are getting points else you will end up paying 1% surcharge

Anyone with SBI BPCL, can you please confirm if the SBI card has to be swiped on SBI machines ?

Deal Cadet Deal Cadet

Received a call from some SBI agent and she said she can process SBI BPCL card as LTF for me , I said yes and went with the process flow, and things looks genuine as application tracking link was redirecting to SBI website and had a track , now the Agent told me to agree to the charges over call for verification for 499 plus GST , and the same was told to me over call from SBI team , and later she can get this card as LTF and not to worry.

I am half the way and I need some help here , should i trust the agent or backoff ? I doubt if she can really make this as LTF card.

Anyone has prior experience with this card ?

Fraud. Just completing her target biggrin
Ask her to send a written confirmation over mail about the assurance she is giving. If card is not converted to LTF , then I’ll complain to RBI ombudsman that you promised the same smile
And see magic biggrin
