This offer translates to a reward rate of 2.6% for Regalia and 6.6% for Infinia card holders which is decent. However a low maximum cap on rewards is little disappointing. Also this offer is applicable only on Visa cards and hence cards issued on Mastercard and Diners Club platform don’t qualify for this offer.
