Because since last one year I am noticing a fall in reward rates on payment of utility bills.

But a big thanks to Axis Bank for providing Such a good card which is most beneficial for utility bill payment.

I totally recommend this credit card for all, because this card is a most useful for utility bill payment.

In this card you will get 5% cashback on all your bill payments on Google Pay app with no capping.

Not only this, you will also get 2% cashback on all other payments other then google pay.

One downside of HDFC Millenia credit card is, Your spend below Rs. 2,000 will not incur any reward point.

That’s why I am recommending you Axis bank’s card which may not offer 5% cashback on amazon and flipkart but has no capping as HDFC Bank Millenia Credit Card.
