Hi Guys, wanted to share a unique way to earn 1% Cashback on Credit Card Payments from HDFC Billpay. Have been using this method from quite some time now.

Disclaimers:

1) You need to have a Savings Account + Debit Card with HDFC Bank, as the 1% Cashback will be on your Debit Card
2) This method does not work for HDFC Bank Credit Cards
3) If you have Easyshop Platinum debit card then you get a maximum cashback of 750 in a month. Or in other words your Credit Card Bill of max 75,000 will be eligibile for 1% cashback. This INR 750 cashback/ month is also valid on Easyshop Imperia, Preferred, Classic, and Women’s Advantage
If you have HDF's Millenia Debit Card, then the max cashback is capped to INR 400/ month.


Steps for earning 1% cashback

Step 1: Go to HDFC's Netbanking Portal (also valid on App)

Step 2: Got to "BillPay & Recharge" Option from the Top

Step 3: Select Credit Card Payment in the Add Biller Category

Step 4: Select the Credit Card (almost all Credit Cards are available here)

Step 5: Enter your Card Details (Card Number) and Bill Amount

Step 6: In Payment Option, select Debit Card as an option (Cashback is not available on Bank Account)

Step 7: Enter OTP. Complete the Transaction.

Step 8: To track your reward points, go to Card Section ---> Enquire

Step 9: Check and Redeem Card Points
Note: You can only redeem a min of 250 points. These points have a validity of max 1 year from the date of Credit

Step 10: Entire Process can be done via HDFC's App also

Let me know if you know of any other better ways to earn cashback on your Credit Card Payments?

It is Indeed a bummer that This method does not work for HDFC Banks' own Credit Cards. IDFC credit cards are also unavailable to add to the billers which I found strange.

The issue here is that this has limited banks listed. So when I heard about this and went on to pay my credit card bill for my IDFC credit card, I could not find it. Is there any workaround for banks which are not listed here?

Hello Ms. Kaur,

As I am holding a Hdfc salary cum saving account, cause its salary based I can maintain zero balance otherwise minimum balance required is 10k. Also I didn't find any way to waive off debit card annual charges. In my opinion I would recommend you to open account in Axis bank. Although they also have minimum balance required in the account but it depends on the type of account you are holding.


Thankyou

Thanks for the response but I dont have need to open a bank account. I was going for HDFC bank account just to get the benefit of credit card bill payments (1% cashback) through its debit card. So just wanted to confirm if that offer is still valid then only I will open HDFC account else I dont have need to open any bank account

What are the maintenance charges on a HDFC savings account and what are annual charges of its debit cards and is there a way to get waive off on these charges? @ShavirB
There are maintenance charges per say for HDFC savings Account. You just need to maintain an average minimum balance (this vary's on the type of account you have). Annual Charges for Debit Card also vary from Rs. 200 to TRs. 750 depending on the type of card you have - For Moneyback they will charges Rs. 200, for Platinum they will charge Rs. 750

Have attached the detailed list of charges for HDFC Accounts

You can earn 1% cashback for HDFC credit cards also if you use Mobikwik and make the payment using your HDFC debit card.

Hi @ShavirB Is it mandatory to set smartpay for these bills or will 1% be applicable if we just pay through DC?
