Our Suggestion

This is a very basic card offered by Standard Chartered which provides rewards in the form of discount. So if you want a card for rewards as points than this is not which you can consider.

The best offer this card will give in the form of Yatra and Myntra discount vouchers.

Bottom Line

Now the main question here is that you should take this card or not?

The first thing to be clear about is that it is not a reward card. You will not get any reward for making a payment through this card. You will all the offers mentioned above; hence we can say this card is a discount card instead of a reward card.

The benefits provided are decent; of course, they are limited, but they are worth a card in this range.
