Bottomline

Standard Chartered, just like HDFC, is trying to tap the millennial segment which constitute 34% of India’s population. The reward rate across the selected merchants is fabulous and low monthly fee and threshold for monthly fee waiver is indeed exciting. Inclusion of Amazon or Flipkart to this list would have made this card even better.

However absence of reward points on spends made using this card is a big bummer. It simply means absolutely no benefit on using this card on merchants apart from their partners. Also no domestic airport lounge access, which is provided by some cards in this segment, is again disappointing.

One should go for this card only if their major spend is spread across the partnered merchants. Personally I would give this card a pass and would rather recommend Amazon Pay ICICI, Flipkart Axis or HDFC Millennia credit card to beginners.
