Devaluations are a part of every credit card’s journey. But, sometimes they can be very harsh especially if they are because of a crisis. Yes Bank credit cards are among the least rewarding cards in the market today. But, they still hold good for the occasional merchants and spend offers. While its entry-level Prosperity cards are mediocre at best, the premium cards are somewhat better in rewards. We have three cards in the Premium Range – First Exclusive, First Preferred, and Premia. In this post, we review the Yes Bank Premia credit card.

Fees and Charges

Final Thoughts

We have some good benefits like complimentary airport lounge access and Golf. But, the rewards are really low to use the card for any transactions.
