IDFC First Bank HPCL Power Credit Card Review – Rewards
  • Extra 1.5% cashback (as Payback points) on using HP Pay
  • 1% fuel surcharge waiver
  • UPI transactions get the same reward rate based on the spend category!

The returns on fuel, utilities and groceries are good enough for a card of this segment. But outside that, there is not much benefit of using the IDFC First Power credit card. HP Pay is a scan-and-pay app through which we can pay for fuel and gas cylinders. This is possible if the fuel pump has an HP Pay QR code. But, there is an extra charge of 1% for using credit cards on HP Pay. So, the 1.5% benefit is not of much use.

Rewards Redemption

Each reward point is equal to 25 paise and can be redeemed as a statement credit. This is one of the best benefits of this card. There is no restriction that we need to redeem the rewards for fuel or vouchers. Statement credit is always better and makes more sense than those options.

But, there is a negative too. IDFC First Bank charges Rs 99+GST for every reward point redemption. So, it is better to accumulate points and then redeem them.

Other Key Benefits & Charges

  • Complimentary Roadside Assistance up to 4 times per year
  • 1% Fuel Surcharge Waiver up to Rs 100 per statement cycle. This will be applicable on fuel transaction value of Rs 200 to Rs 5000.
  • Foreign Currency Markup: 3.5%+GST

The complimentary RSA is one of the unique privileges for a card of this segment. It covers many of the RSA services that we get as a paid cover from the vehicle showroom.

Final Thoughts

The IDFC First Bank HPCL Power credit card is a good option if your fuel spends are up to Rs 5000 per month. With many cashback cards not offering rewards on fuel, it has become essential to hold a fuel credit card.

IDFC First Bank HPCL Power credit card is one of the good fuel credit cards where we can meet the annual fee waiver by only using this card for fuel. The second plus point of this card is it is on RuPay. We can use this for UPI transactions too and get reward points.

    I would like to have a HPCL-IDFC FIRST BANK + card as I’m a regular customer of petrol. How can I have it easily?

    1. You can apply online with the links in the review. IDFC First Bank has an online credit card onboarding process.

        The card rewards you with points but also charge you extra as service charges for fuel. So, it is like getting your money back as rewards which you paid extra.
        Other than that not much of a use.
