My Experience and Opinion


I have been using the HDFC Tata Neu Rupay Credit Card for about two months now, and I am quite impressed with it. The rewards are generous and easy to earn and redeem. I shop a lot on Tata Neu and partner brands, so I get a lot of value from the card. The lounge access and travel offers are also nice perks that add to the overall experience.


The card is also easy to use and manage. The online portal and app are user-friendly and intuitive. The customer service is prompt and helpful. The card is accepted widely both in India and abroad.


The only downside I can think of is that the card does not offer any welcome benefit or milestone benefit, which would have made it more appealing. Also, some categories like fuel, wallet loads, smart EMI, rental, government related transactions, etc., do not earn any reward points.


Overall, I think the HDFC Tata Neu Rupay Credit Card is a great option for anyone who wants to save more while shopping on Tata Neu and partner brands. It offers extraordinary rewards across various categories, along with other benefits like lounge access, travel offers, fuel surcharge waiver, etc. The fees are reasonable and can be waived off with high spending. The card is also easy to apply for and use.


If you are interested in applying for this card, you can visit the HDFC Bank or Tata Neu website or app and fill in your details. You can also check out the other co-branded credit card from HDFC Bank and Tata Neu, which is the Tata Neu Plus Credit Card. This is a lower variant of the Tata Neu Infinity Credit Card, with lower fees and rewards.
