Our Suggestion

It is a semi-premium card that comes with an average reward rate of 2%. It offers 5X rewards on utility payments and entertainment spending.

Being a semi-premium card, it offers only 2 lounge access per quarter which is not sufficient. We have this card for a year, and the best thing we found about this card is a welcome bonus of 8000 points.

Hence anyone who is OK with basic reward rate can go for this card.
