HDFC Bank Millennia Debit Card & It's Benefits 🔥

PC: Siddharth Raman

Charges: 500 + GST annually. Charges are waived for HDFC Salary accounts or Savings Max accounts.


• 5% cashback on PayZapp or Smartbuy

• 2.5% cashback on shopping i.e. on Flipkart, Amazon etc

• 1% on other transactions i.e. wallet loads, credit card payments etc

• Total rewards is capped at 400 RP/month

• Bonus - 5% cashback upto 1000 on Gift Vouchers purchase via Smartbuy per month. P.s. Smartbuy has introduced 2.5% & 3.25% + GST on ASV & AGV respectively.

• Cashback will be credited in 4 month after the transaction (i.e. 90 days), you can redeem via HDFC netbanking.

• You can get rewards worth ₹16,800 annually.

How to milk the benefits?

• If you use it on smartbuy only then 5% upto 400 (card benefits) + 5% upto 1000 (smartbuy bonus), total 1400 RP/month you’ll be getting. Since Smartbuy charging convenience fees on AGV & ASV, better to buy Flipkart GV without convenience fee on smartbuy.

• For example, if you buy Flipkart GV worth 8k via Smartbuy with Millennia DC, you’ll get 400 + 400 = 800 cashback, meaning 10% cashback on Flipkart GV.

• In another example, if you buy worth 20k, you’ll get 1400 cashback, meaning 7% cashback on Flipkart GV. So buy accordingly as per your needs. P.s. there is cap of buying maximum 10k p.m. on Flipkart, Amazon, etc GVs.

• If you use Millennia DC for 40k credit card payments worth 40k via Mobikwik, Paytm etc only, then 1% upto 400 cap will be over & you’ll get 5% cashback upto 1000 if you purchase any GV via Smartbuy now.

Hope you’ve understood the benefits & enjoy the rewards :heart:. Ask if any query.

Automatically upgrade doesn’t work always.

You can manually request bank to upgrade it via branch.

No, you’ll have to maintain the balance.

Yes, pay other bank credit card bill (16k max) using HDFC bill pay and earn 2.5% upto 400 cashback.

Now, almost all apps levying charges on add money.

Amazon Pay, Bajaj Finserv app, etc have free wallet load using DC.

Paisabazar for what?
