Yes Bank Prosperity Rewards Credit Card Review

Table of Contents

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. In this post, we check out one of the entry-level credit cards from the Prosperity range. Here is a review of the Yes Bank Prosperity Edge credit card and its rewards & benefits.

Fees and Charges

All Yes Bank credit cards (except the Private) are issued as Lifetime Free (LTF). The product/application pages mention an annual fee but we can apply through agents to get it LTF.

Yes Bank Prosperity Edge Credit Card Review – Fees and Charges


Yes Bank credit cards have two different reward rates depending on the category. Almost all of our major spending come under the ‘slow’ reward rate. The below table’s return assumes that rewards will be redeemed for flights. More details are in the ‘Rewards Redemption’ section.

The return rate is too low to even consider using this card for any transactions. Only cases where this might be useful when there is some spend or merchant offer.

Transport, Utilities, Groceries, Supermarkets, Insurance, Education, Govt. Services, Tolls, and Convenience Stores 2 RP/Rs 2000.25%

Final Thoughts

We had a time when Yes Bank credit cards were very rewarding. But with all the changes, their credit cards are now among the least rewarding cards in the market. Pick up an entry-level card and it will have a reward rate better than their Prosperity range of credit cards.

Even if you get/have this card, we recommend getting one of the entry-level cards in this list to get a better return on your spending.
