List of Best Credit Cards for Shopping Online & Offline in India

#1 HDFC Bank Diners Club Black

My HDFC Diners Club Black Credit Card (India)

Its one of the best cards in my wallet that fits almost anything and everything. Diners cards has temporary yet lucrative 10X rewards program which can get you value back of 33% (as points) on anything you buy at Flipkart and many other partners.

However, Diners card acceptance in india is less, though its getting better over time.

Standard Chartered Manhattan Credit Card Review

I call this card as a Family man card 😀 Looking for cashback on groceries and departmental store spends? This card is for you.

#5 HDFC Infinia Credit Card

While this is basically not a shopping card, HDFC rolls out some nice offers which can help you save hell a lot of money if you know how to make use of the timely promotions run by HDFC.

For example, recently HDFC is running 5X rewards on couple of partner brands like Nilgiris, Payzapp, etc with which you can get upto 16.5% (3.3% * 5 Times) value back. However, its not that easy to get this card. Its a dream card for many, including me 😉

Even without promotions, you can easily earn 3.3% value back on any transactions with Infinia Credit Card, except on fuel.

HDFC Diners Black is my all time favorite credit card for shopping, Fuel (recently) and the most important – airport lounge access.

    My favorite is CitiBank IndianOil Platinum Card. It earns me a good ₹ 4000- 5000 worth of reward points annually. Each reward point earned is worth a ₹ of fuel.

    Siddharth , I was having Jet Airways Citi card, and when they cancelled the association, Citi offered me to give all the Miles as reward points i earned till date on co-branded card (though they were already transferred to JetAirways) and life time fee of Rs 1000.

    Now a days i am not using this card much but almost every year i do get atleast 1k worth of vouchers through the points earned.

    So do you think this card is worth it at this 1K price?
