Final Review on Yes Bank Preferred Credit Card
I personally like the credit cards that offer welcome gift having a value equal to the annual fee or having some annual fee waiver clause. Because I don’t like to pay an annual fee.This card belongs to the same category.
Along with annual fee benefit, you will get direct 2% saving on your all spends more than HDFC Regalia credit card (one the most famous credit card).
On above that, if you spend INR 7.5 Lakhs in a year you will get 20,000 reward points.
All these things make me excited for this card. But..
Applying for this credit card, the applicant should have a minimum annual income of Rs 18, which make this card for the very limited section of users. If you belong to some section, then you should go for the card.
