Usually credit card users use only one credit card for all of their shopping and other expenditures.
If you are smart enough and know the various types of credit cards issued by the banks for different purposes then you could save a lot of money.
Having just one regular credit card for all purposes is not a smart way to go around. You need to try out various other options given by your bank.
In this particular article we look at the variety of credit cards issued by HDFC banks. Although all banks issues different types of credit cards but I particularly use HDFC bank’s.
In recent years I used almost all the cards issued by them. After using all of them I wrote down this particular list.
