Recently, I received an offer from HDFC Bank regarding the upgrade of my HDFC Bank Money Back Credit Card to HDFC Bank Regalia Credit Card.
This upgrade was free of cost to me. Credit card upgrade is at the sole discretion of the bank, for the upgrade the bank sees factors such as your spending pattern, your credit card bill payment history amongst others.
HDFC Regalia Credit Card comes under the Luxury Credit Card category of HDFC Bank. I went on to see the benefit of the card to check whether I should go for the upgrade or not. I found the following features:
