Something about Metal Credit card

Metal credit card is sleek, sturdy, and still relatively rare in comparison to plastic cards. Normally it’s only an invitation basis credit card, and it’s more durable. American Express Centurion Card is the longest-lived existing metal card.

Joining & Renewal Fees

This is a lifetime free credit card, so no joining fees or annual/renewal fees.

Benefits and Features

Types Rewards Rewards Rate

Accelerated Reward 1 RP/ Rs.50 1%
Rewards Points value 1 Reward point = 0.10 paisa

Note:  5X points are available on all Category whether it’s dinning, Travel, or Fuel. I think only this credit which comes with 5X rewards points on even fuel transaction.

OneCard rewards
OneCard rewards

Most Credit cards do not give rewards points on Utility Bill, Fuels, and Insurance payments, but here are exceptions. OneCard credit gives rewards points on all category expenses.

Note : Reward points will not be credited on transfers, wallet loads, and cash withdrawals

Lowest Forex Mark Fees

This credit card has the lowest forex mark fees for making any transaction. It also offers 1% fees on forex transactions abroad or Foreign expenses. I am a frequent traveler and have used several cards. Being a metal card, OneCard is definitely the best option if you are looking for a free credit card with low forex mark fees.

Other Benefits

  • Its Metal Credit card, normally Metal credit is not issued.
  • OneCard is issued with the VISA network.
  • ·Points are issued instantly
  • Fractional Points
  • Slick In-App Points Redemption
  • Zero Rewards Redemption Fee
  • Points Never Expire

When you spend on your existing credit cards, the reward points are credited after rounding off the amount as per the decided rate. If you a spend of 100 is eligible for 1 point and you spend 225, you get just 2 points, losing out on the remaining, but this credit card is an exception. It also gives fractional points.

Well, The OneCard app is intuitive and will be easy to use, my Onboarding experience is best if compare with other apps…. This features makes, One Credit Card one of best Credit Cad in India.

However, rewards rate is little bit lower then other Credit Card, but more benefits make OneCard a better option for its users if you want an entry level credit card.

I think this is a great credit card for the beginner as well as who want Metal feel in credit card. This is a must-have credit card for all person. Its goods to have Amazon ICICI Bank credit card but you should also apply for Onecard Credit card.

  1. Did you have CIBIL enquiry after you applied?

    I use OneScore to track my CIBIL and Experian scores and I started using since this month (Jan ’22). After 15 days, I get a notification on the app that I can get a free metal card with a credit limit of xx thousand.

    But I already have a CIBIL enquiry from ICICI Bank for 1Lakh since I applied for their card on Amazon Pay. So I was just curious.

      • Thank you for your response. You’re right. I assume it’s probably because they already have our scores with them. I applied on 28th and got it approved within minutes. I wanted to get one that’s issued by IDFC. However, they said no one will get a choice as to which banking partner card they’ll get. I had to settle with my card that’s issued by Federal banking. And I can confirm that there was no CIBIL enquiry in my report.
