RBL Paisa On Demand Credit Card

RBL Bank Paisa On Demand Credit Card is another credit line card from RBL Bank’s stable in association with PaisaBazaar. The bank is very aggressively launching such credit line cards in recent times to increase their loan books. Though this card is a paid card as per RBL Bank’s website but is being issued as Life Time Free via Paisabazaar website. Due to the same, there is a lot of noise over all our communication channels about this card. So on everyone’s request, I am bringing this review for you. So let’s check out what’s in the store.

Reward Points Accrual

All Offline Spends*1 Reward Point per ₹100 spent
All Online Spends2 Reward Points per ₹100 spent

*Except Fuel spends.

Reward Points Redemption

RBL Bank reward points can be redeemed on their dedicated portal RBL Rewards Portal but they have the worst reward rates in the credit card industry. They give the most value on travel redemptions but with such poor accrual rates. I hardly doubt that anyone will be able to redeem something meaningful out of the reward points.

Modes of RedemptionValue Per PointReward Rate
Travel Redemptions~25p/Point0.25% on Offline Spends
0.5% on Online Spends
Voucher Redemptions~16p to 23p/Point0.16% to 0.23% on Offline Spends
0.32% to 0.46% on Online Spends
  • No reward redemption charges.

Milestone Benefits

Milestone benefits of this card are not up to the mark but as per RBL Bank’s standard still on a better side. I don’t think anyone will be able to hit the milestone spends on this card as RBL tie-ups in sales and promotional offers are very rarely seen.

  • Annual Fee for the next year is reversed on spends of ₹1L in a year.
  • Get additional 2000 Bonus Points on spends of every ₹1L up to 10 times a year.
  • Additional bonus reward points will be credited in the Cardmember’s Account within 30 days of crossing the spend threshold.
  • The qualifying purchase value for bonus reward points will exclude all EMI transactions, cash withdrawals, charges and Goods and Services Tax.

TechnoFino Maximum

Even in your dreams if you hit the milestone then also the effective reward rate would be 1% that too if the points are used for travel redemptions. Are you kidding me? Keep it inside a drawer. I hope you have better cards with yourself at your disposal.

BookMyShow Movie Benefit

Get 1+1 free movie tickets (Up to ₹200/-) on BookMyShow once a month for Weekend shows. This is mostly a standard offering on most of the RBL Cards but mostly I find that the tickets quota is full.

TechnoFino Recommends

Such LTF cards are beneficial when it comes to festive sales and other promotional offers from time to time. So if you are an LTF card collector then I see no harm in going for this card. Except for this, I can’t even think of suggesting to you a single reason to get hold of it as the reward rates are so pathetic.

If you are really keen to hold an RBL card then I would suggest RBL Zomato or even the RBL ETMoney LoanPass over this card. I see no point in going for an LTF card if there are better benefits cards available from the same bank. In this way, you will at least reap some monthly benefits and have an RBL card in your kitty.

Are you having any RBL credit card in your wallet or are you maintaining a good distance from this bank? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
