Bank Of Baroda Select Credit Card Review

You are currently viewing Bank Of Baroda Select Credit Card Review

Bank Of Baroda Select Credit Card is one of the premium card offerings from the bank. This card is offered on the Visa Platinum platform by the issuer. This card is too good for online spending, bill payments, and dining. I have recently reviewed the Bank Of Baroda Premier Credit Card also which is good for travel and dining categories.

Charges and Welcome Benefits

Joining Fee₹750+GST = ₹885
Joining Fee WaiverSpend ₹7,500 on your card within the first 60 days of the card setup date for first-year fee reversal*.
Annual Fee₹750+GST = ₹885

Fee reversal will reflect in the 4th bill statement from the card issuance month.

It is being offered as unconditional LTF for a limited period of time so grab now!

We are also sharing with you an exclusive referral link for all the TechnoFino readers with a commitment that we will be helping you in the application process if you apply using our referral link. For any queries related to the application, you can raise them here on the TechnoFino Community. So what is stopping you from grabbing a BOB card?

Reward Points Accrual

All other Spends*1RP/ ₹100None
  • *Reward program not applicable on Fuel, EMI transactions & Cash withdrawals.

Reward Points Redemption

Spends AreaReward Rate
Dining, Utility bills, Online spends1.25%
All other Spends0.25%
  • 1 Reward Point = ₹0.25p
  • Reward redemption charges are absolutely zero.

The card is great for Dining, Utility bills, and Online spending. The reward rate in other categories is very poor. The USP is that reward points can simply be redeemed as a statement credit for 25p per point that too without any redemption charges which is a great feature as most banks are nowadays charging for direct cash redemptions.

TechnoFino Maximum

For the Dining, Utility bills, and Online spending, a spend of ₹20,000 per month will give you a cashback of ₹250.

Fuel Surcharge Waiver

1% fuel surcharge waiver at all fuel stations across India on transactions between ₹400 and ₹5,000

  • Max. surcharge waiver ₹250 per statement cycle.
  • No Reward Points are earned on fuel transactions.
Forex Markup

Standard forex charges of 3.5% + GST applicable.

Eligibility
  • Indian resident
  • Age 21 to 65 years
  • Monthly Income 40,000.

Generally, they are not very strict with these criteria.

TechnoFino Recommends

Discount on cylinder booking via Amazon Pay.

The joy of holding a BOB card lies in its offers whether it’s the 20% cashback on CRED club, 12-15% on flights/hotels via EaseMyTrip, Yatra.com, or even 5% cashback on bill payments via Amazon Pay. BOB is running a 5% cashback offer on utility bill payments for the last 2 years continuously on Amazon through which we can even book a gas cylinder at 5% off!! Even though it is a lending arm of a PSU Bank but is phenomenally aggressive when it comes to tie-ups with merchants.

You must have heard bad things about their service but honestly, my experience has been just okayish with them. The only funda I use in dealing with them is that I simply send all the complaint details in the first mail itself so that even if they take the time they have all the details to get it resolved ASAP. They do take good time sometimes but they resolve it satisfactorily.

So what is stopping you from applying for an LTF credit card with so many benefits?
