It used to have good redemption options like Amazon, Flipkart vouchers. Looks like it is permanently gone now. Is it time to cancel the ultimate card. Also, they never give this card life time free. Opinions pls.

Yes considering the factors you mentioned on, it doesn’t seem worth it the annual fee for this card

SC cards are shit. Everyone should cancel/close their card to send the company a message.

Looks like standard chartered added amazon and flipkart vouchers to get more customers. Once their target is achieved, they stopped the amazon and flipkart vouchers. Now everyone should start cancelling the card and they will learn a lesson. Before my renewal, I will plan to cancel the card.

I am planning to apply for SC ultimate. Given the feedback, I am not sure anymore. Can you suggest the alternative card that you guys are using that has similar rewards.

My largest payments on card would be for paying rent. I am currently using regalia but as per my calculations, rewards will be better in this SC ultimate card.

Your suggestions ..plz.

Standard Chartered Ultimate will give you 3.3% returns on rent payment. However, you need to decide what you’d like to do with the reward points. Amazon and flipkart vouchers are rarely available now. Rest all options are useless for me, hence I have stopped using this card. For you, it will depend if you value any other option from the available reward redemption catalogue. If yes, you can go for it, else not recommended.

Thanks.. is there a link through which  I can check the rewards catalog ? Or can you suggest the kind of rewards that are available. I don’t want to get stuck with a paid card if there are no good redemption option available. Tia.

I doubt you’d be able to see ultimate rewards without login
