This is a fundamental card and is good for those who want beginner card to understand the usage of credit card & how it works.
This card gives a fundamental reward and does not offer any lounge access. The best part about the platinum chip card is that it does not charge any joining fee or annual fee.
I will suggest you go for HDFC cards if you’re looking for a decent amount of return on your spending. Otherwise, if you are a beginner and have faith in ICICI services and want a card from that bank only, you can go for this.

The card provides no such exciting things. If you want a credit card with no joining and a renewal fee, this is the perfect suit for you. You can not get much out of this card even if you spend a lot.
However, ICICI benefits you in terms of allowing you to spend more than your prescribed limit.
