Final words on Yes Bank Preferred Credit Card
I personally like the credit cards that offer a welcome gift having a value equal to the annual fee or having some annual fee waiver clause. Because I don’t like to pay an annual fee. This card belongs to the same category.

Along with annual fee benefit, you will get a direct 2% saving on your all spending more than HDFC Regalia credit card (one the most famous credit card).
On above that, if you spend INR 7.5 Lakhs in a year you will get 20,000 reward points. All these things make me excited for this card.


Applying for this credit card, the applicant should have a minimum annual income of Rs 18, which makes this card for the very limited section of users. If you belong to the same section, this is a must-have card for you.
