By | March 15, 2021

IDFC has launched its first-ever credit card at the beginning of this year, named IDFC FIRST Millennia Credit card. After a long time of fall IDFC finally came to a stable position in the market at the starting of this year only.

IDFC, in collaboration with Onecard, is already doing great in the market. Now let us see what is provided by IDFC in this card. The card is yet to launch for non-IDFC customers & is expected to be there in March or April.

It is a ‘ Life Time Free’ membership card.

Yes, you have read the right words; this a lifetime free card. Now many of you think about how can IDFC take such a huge decision to provide LTF offers its first-ever card.

The answer is no one knows because the bank did not make clear that this offer lasts for how long. Might they have plans to keep this free for a few of its starting customers or few months? Hence, we actually don’t know for how much time this offer will continue.
