IDFC Wealth card is the most impacted with this change from 1st May

0.5% default rewards up to 20,000 spends. Theron, 1.66% unlimited.

I am very disappointed with this change. RBI should stop all the non sense YouTube videos by the so called influencers exposing loop holes in the banking system for ensuring safety and fair usage of the financial instrument. and at the same time restrict banks from massive devaluation. At the end we as end consumers suffer. People should stop abusing reward points and cashbacks.

Now my Amazon Pay ICICI card looks best. Atleast I can close my eyes and spend anywhere getting 1% cashback no strings applied.

The IDFC card practically became useless. My LTF SBI SimplyClick now looks much better

Are these 2 Lounge Access per quarter are given on based of 20,000 spend?

Means no more free lounge access?

I will suggest you keep this credit card as long as it is LTF and might be required for bank offers in sale. Also, you will get a free roadside assistance program along with this card that may be useful if you own a car.

The best thing that happened to me was - I applied the card on 29 March (Wealth) due to easy approval (year end) but my pincode was not serviceable joy_cat
