Payback Redemption charges – 25 + Service tax

Today I am shocked to see that ICICI charged 29.08 from my ICICI savings account for payback redemption. I redeemed 93 Rs worth points in Mobikwik.

Point is I even don’t know that there are charges for payback points redemption. And Second I got these points from multiple sources like Brand factory, Bookmyshow etc. and not directly through ICICI debit or credit card. How ICICI got the right to debit amount for those points redemption.. This is ridiculous.

Any one faced same issue??

When your payback account is connected to icici or that account is given to you by them, they have full right to charge 25+ rs per redemption and it’s there in thier terms and conditions also. it’s not about facing an issue, it’s in terms and conditions. its there points reedeption charges.

Then it is better to have payback card non linked to icici account.

I redeemed many times on mobikwik, but never any such charge as it is not linked to any bank account.

if payback isn’t linked with your icici bank account then they will not debit. if it’s linked and you want reedem the points they will debit. as simple as that.

ICICI Bank itself is very very UNFAIR bank.

They charges for each and everything, really WORST in this aspect.
You can compare with other bank charges for the banking activities. It’s really pathetic in sucking customers blood for each and every thing and * Did you see any time ICICI giving any cash back (like 10% or 15%) on any occasion in any Online site, we won’t *

In future, the may charges for these things as well smile
- For checking balance using Net Banking
- When visiting ICICI ATM itself
- When you received the msg from ICICI (includes OTP).
etc. Beware.

This is old news, bro. If you earn Payback points via an ICICI DC/CC linked to that Payback account, then they do deduct 25 + ST for every time you withdraw points.

Payback is owned by ICICI or has partnered up with them.

This has been present in their T&C since 1-2 years,before that there was no redemption fee.

But if you dont link your ICICI account with payback,you wont receive points for ICICI card transactions.

You will receive points only for transactions at payback partners,earlier you received points for every transaction in icici

Of course yes . My credit card got charged 4 times (100 +Rs) for redeeming small amount of payback points. I was shocked.
So, it is better to redeem more points at one go to avoid these stupid charges . don’t think about redeeming 100 or 200 points.
ICICI never leaves any opportunity to charge customer .
There is no option to avoid these charges .

icici won’t leave even 0.000000000000000001% opportunity from normal customers.
But, in case of vips/others black money u know it well wink

iMint was a venture owned by ICICI Bank. iMint was sold to Payback. Now Payback itself has become a subsidiary of Amex. Any Payback account linked to either ICICI Savings or CC account is charged 25+tax per redemption. However, the charge is effectively neutralised if the benefits of such linking are utilised wisely. ICICI Savings account gives 10 payback points per RD auto-debit every month. I have set up 5 RD (of Rs.1000 each). Get 600 payback points per year (10×5×12) from these alone which works out to Rs.150. ICICI also gives points for payment to VISA cards from that account. Use the facility for payment of my credit card bill. I normally redeem only after accumulating 2000 or more points and when special offers are there, like the recent offer at Central, about 2-3 times a year. So the total redemption cost is less than Rs.100 and the redemption costs charged to my account are more than recovered from the extra credits got from that account only.

Forgot to Update.. Icici reversed my charges for this transaction.. I mentioned that I don’t know about these charges.. So probably considered for reversal once
