Cred App Unbiased Review

So it was the post about the Cred app. I personally love to use the Cred app for my Credit Card bill payment. Overall it’s an amazing app for earning cashback, exciting offers, rewards, etc for just paying your Credit Card Bill Payments. Also, CRED credits your credit card payments to your card almost instantly (within 1-2 minutes), and it is one of the fastest apps available for the same.

However, upon my research, I found some minor cons too. Sometimes it shows due payments and sends the notification for the same on your smartphone even when you already paid the bill. Some users also commented that when they did a large amount of bill payment then the transaction got failed.

However in this case you will get the money returned to your account but it may take up to 7 days to process the failed transaction. So if you’re in a hurry of paying your credit card bills you can opt-in for instant settlement using Net banking of the bank.

Lastly, Cred Support is very active over email and Twitter. You will get responses within a few minutes if you ever face any issues. This surely keeps the trust in the brand. I am regularly using Cred app since the beginning of 2020 to pay bills for HDFC Bank Credit Cards, ICICI Bank Credit Cards, and Axis Bank Credit Cards and it has been smooth for me every time.
