More Desired HDFC Credit Cards

While Credit Cards become more important in our daily life, 
there is so much gap in the proper usage.

The biggest drawback is more people fear about the credit card unknown charges, but to be frank there are no unknown charges in the banking products, whether it is a debit card or a credit card.

And I have been trying to help to find the more demanded credit cards based on the banks, instead of finding the best from the group of different banks.

There is a reason behind this, I have faced a bad situation with one of the bank and it breaks my trust.

So, If you have a good opinion with the HDFC Bank, this post is specially for you. 

The only aim with this post is, for who, "I need a HDFC Credit Card with zero annual fee or a complete fee waiver for Annual Fee".

When I have gone through the different HDFC Credit Cards, I found this is the best with the HDFC bank.

HDFC Bank is waiving off the Annual Charges if you spent the minimum amount in an year for more cards than any other banks.

There are two cards in this race:

  • Business Platinum

Now it is your turn, 

At this stage, you may have a doubt, which credit card will suit for me.

It has been already discussed in my previous posts, but re-iterating here for you.

I have been using HDFC Money Back Credit card for more than 10 years. I didn't pay any annual fee till now(only in the initial years).

And mostly my spent is limited to the groceries and online shopping, which rounded to a min of 1.5 lakhs per year.

So, I recommend, find where are your expenses go, is it for Online Shopping, Dining, Travel, Petrol?

Once you are ready with that, go through list of cards, then find your per year expenses, this will drill down to one or two cards.

Choose the best from those two cards(links provided against each card)

It is always recommend to apply credit card through from your online banking account, instead of reaching agents.
