HDFC BillPay: Earn 1% Cashback on Credit Card Bill Payments

If you have heavy usage on your Credit Cards every month, then you might want to know the best ways to pay credit card bills to squeeze out more reward points or cashback on the same.

In today’s post, I am going to discuss the HDFC BillPay portal which allows you to pay credit card bills and earn 1% Cashback on the same. So, let’s get started.

Things To Know:

  1. This method applies only to HDFC Bank Account holders. In case you don’t have an HDFC Savings Account, consider opening one. Here are the HDFC Savings Account Types that you can open. You can also upgrade your HDFC Savings Account to Classic/Preferred/Imperia to avail more benefits.

  2. HDFC Easyshop Platinum Debit Card holders can avail this offer via HDFC Bill Pay Portal. Details are given below.

  3. HDFC Millennia Debit Card holders can avail this offer via any 3rd Party App that allows Credit Card Bill Payments like Mobikwik or PostPe or PayTM. You cannot use HDFC Bill Pay portal.

Note: PostPe gives you an additional 0.4% Cashback on their platform. Refer to: PostPe: Earn 0.4% Cashback on Credit Card Bill Payments For PayTM, you can Add Money to PayTM Wallet, you will earn 1% Cashback, and then use it to pay Credit Card Bills.

Cashback Details:

  1. For HDFC Millennia Debit Card, you will get 1% Cashback up to ₹400.
  2. For HDFC Easyshop Platinum Debit Card, you will get 1% Cashback up to ₹750.

As you have probably guessed already, you are getting higher cashback with the HDFC Easyshop Platinum Debit Card. So, you might want to upgrade from HDFC Millennia DC to Easyshop Platinum DC.

Usually, Millennia DC has ₹500 + GST charges and Easyshop Platinum DC has ₹750 + GST charges. However, HDFC High Networth Account holders have no debit card charges at all. So, you might want to upgrade your HDFC Account to Classic / Preferred / Imperia to enjoy these benefits.

Supported Credit Cards for HDFC BillPay Portal (Applies to HDFC Easyshop Platinum DC):

  1. American Express Credit Card.
  2. Axis Bank Credit Card.
  3. Central Bank of India Credit Card.
  4. CitiBank Credit Card.
  5. HSBC Bank Credit Card.
  6. ICICI Bank Credit Card.
  7. IDBI Bank Credit Card.
  8. IndusInd Bank Credit Card.
  9. RBL Bank Credit Card.
  10. SBI Card.
  11. Saraswat Bank Credit Card.
  12. Standard Chartered Bank Credit Card.

Note: This doesn’t support HDFC Credit Cards themselves. In case you have an HDFC Credit Card, consider using platforms mentioned earlier, like PostPe or Mobikwik.

If you have HDFC Classic and above account, then Easyshop Platinum DC makes sense. Else HDFC Millennia DC. Refer to: HDFC Bank Savings Account + High Networth Banking

Will i grt 1% additional cashback if i pay using platinum card on mobikwik & 1% as reward points so means 1% twice?
I mean is there added benefits for platinum card holders to pay on mobikwik rather than on hdfc billpay?

HDFC Platinum CC pays 1% only and only if you use HDFC Billpay platform to pay bills. If you use Mobikwik or any other platform to pay bills, you will get no cashback from HDFC. You can get Mobikwik or other platform deals as applicable, but the HDFC Cashback will NOT be valid there. I hope this clears your confusion @YCHA7950

Thank you for joining FinTalks Community btw.
