My Usage experience

Regarding the Tata Neu Infinity card, I have been using this card on UPI since last 3-4 months and I have loved using my Neu card on Paytm /phonepe apps to nearby vendors. I have hardly used on POS machines for swiping. Also, have used this card for paying on tata brands as well as getting the 5% cashback on utility bills.

The reward points are regularly credited to my Tata Neu app soon after the statement is generated.

My Final words

The ease of application, the high reward rate on Tata brands and UPI rewards make it compelling card to have in your wallet.

Whether you are a beginner or an expert, the Tata Neu cards work for you.
– If you are a beginner, then this card works on both POS swipe machines as well as UPI (Rupay variant).
– If you are an expert (high spender) with multiple credit cards, then this card also serves your purpose for getting cashback on your UPI / Tata Neu spends.

I personally think that using this card on UPI is the best thing for you since you get the 1.5% cashback on UPI payments which you normally wouldnot have got.

I will also suggest to take more than 1 Tata Neu cards in the family. For UPI QR scans purpose, I got this card under my family members names as well so they can also get the UPI Cashback since they can’t use my card on their phone app, since its linked to your mobile number.

If you are planning to apply for this card, please use my referral code – TARU238 to apply.
