The American Express Membership Rewards Credit Card

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Already have a charge card and a credit card from American Express, so was somewhat surprised to get an email from them the other day about lifetime complimentary membership to the American Express Membership Rewards Credit Card.

Turns out this would be linked to my existing American Express Platinum Travel Credit Card. I recall they had launched this card with much fanfare around 2017 and back then, they were offering this card as a companion card to the Gold Charge Card.

Get your free credit score and credit report from OneScore App

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Get free credit score and credit report each month? And without any ads or follow-up spam calls later for credit cards or loans? May seem surprising, given the plethora of such apps or websites around, but OneScore has stuck to that promise.

The company is founded by Anurag Sinha, Rupesh Kumar and Vibhav Hathi – all ex-ICICI Bank(ers). Anurag is also a former colleague from Walnut, where he was instrumental in setting up Walnut Prime (Line of Credit for Walnut app users). He’d mentioned his new company and app name when we’d met some months ago, and some of us had checked out the OneScore app at the time.

Getting the Amazon Pay ICICI Bank credit card

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Back in October 2018, I’d come across an article in the ET about launch of a co-branded Amazon Pay ICICI Bank credit card. The article also mentioned that this card would be offered on an invite-only basis, starting with existing customers of the bank (I already have an ICICI Bank credit card). Some of the features and benefits of the Amazon Pay ICICI Bank credit card are:

– Lifetime Free (no joining or annual fee)
– No surcharge on fuel purchases
– Unlimited Reward Points
– 5% Reward Points on Amazon.in (for Prime members)
– 2% Reward Points on Amazon.in flight bookings, recharges and bill payments
– 1% Reward Points on all other shopping and payments
– Rs.750 cashback on application and approval (for Prime members), added to Amazon Pay balance
