ICICI Jet Airways Sapphiro Credit Card

As mentioned earlier in my reviews about ICICI Platinum Credit card and Coral Credit Card, ICICI Jet Airways Sapphiro Credit Card is the only card worth holding from ICICI bank at the moment. They have decent JP Miles earn rate on domestic spends and also the biggest advantage of this card from my perspective is that it has unlimited access to the domestic lounges. It allows access to most of the lounges that we listed recently in Mastercard affiliated lounges section.

  • “High Flyer Offer” gives you better welcome bonus miles.
  • Joining Fee and Annual fee is waived off for JetPrivilege Platinum Tier members.

ICICI Bank Jet Airways Amex Sapphiro Credit Card earn rate:

  • 5 JP Miles on every Rs.100 Domestic spends
  • 7 JP Miles on every Rs.100 International spends
  • 10 JP Miles on every Rs.100 spent on JetAirways website

ICICI Jet Airways Sapphiro Credit Card (Amex) Features:

  • Card Expert Rating: 4/5
  • JP Miles Earn Rate: 5 JP Miles (Domestic); 7 JP Miles (International); 10 JP Miles (JetAirways Website)
  • Joining Fee: Rs. 5,000 with welcome Bonus of 10,000 JPMiles
  • Renewal Fee: Rs. 5,000 with renewal Bonus of 5,000 JPMiles
  • Fuel Surcharge Waiver: 2.5% fuel surcharge waived off on fuel transactions of maximum ₹ 4,000 at any fuel outlet.
  • Complementary Airport lounge access: Yes, Unlimited with participating domestic lounges.
  • Foreign Exchange Markup fee: 3.5% + Service Tax

Its a good to go card with powerful JPMiles earn rate and is best suited for Jet Airways frequent flyers. Apart from miles, unlimited domestic lounge access is a great thing to have as mentioned earlier. If you’re a frequent domestic traveler, lounges will be of immense help to be productive with your time for which ICICI Jet Airways Sapphiro Credit Card should be in your wallet.

What do you think about the card? Worth it?

    Hey Siddharth, I want to take on Jet co branded CC for their entry miles benefits & miles rewards on swiping. Since i own the diners premium, the best card (Jet HDFC world) is currently unavailable to me. The current options are the ICICI Sapphiro, IndusInd Odyssey & JET Amex. Due to 10 K charges for the Amex from 2nd year onwards, i am currently unwilling to opt for that card. Betwwnn Sapphiro & Odyssey, i am leaning towards the Sapphiro. Any help from your end would be welcome!

      Yes, Sapphiro is one of the best for JP miles earning. Go with it.

    Hi Sid,
    I like the ICICI Rubyx card. Can you please comment or evaluate that? I will mainly use the card for online shopping on amazon for books etc and daily payments. About once a year, I will also book a foreign airline ticket. If nit rubyx, the carn you recommend other cards also ? Thanks!

      Check HDFC Diners cards. It has nice 10X rewards.
      With ICICI, only the above reviewed card is good.

    Thanks siddharth for the review. I’ve called the ICICI customer care and my Coral credit card will be upgraded to Jet Airways Sapphiro.

    They told me that this is dual card variant. As such I’ll be getting both Amex and Visa Cards. This is little bit interesting as the ICICI bank website is silent in this aspect.

        Which other banks allows to hold multiple Credit Card apart from ICICI?

          1. Adi H.

            What are the requirements of SC and Citi Bank for the credit card eligibility?

    This card can accumulate a maximum of 60,000 JPMiles in a year. A Rs 7500/- fee is levied to continue earning miles. This hidden condition makes the card useless for me.

    Hi Sid,
    Great job on providing quality info abotu credit card landscape.

    I wanted to know about ICICI Rubyx Credit cards ( ICICI Offer Master / AMex – 2 Credit Card on offer in one account)
    How good are these compared to offerings by other players (Ex: HDFC Infinia / Regalia or SBI Elite etc.)
    Is it worth using these ( in terms of rewards or point – which get accumalated in PAYBACK )or any other offering ( like Lounge Access) etc.

      These cards cannot be compared with ICICI cards as they’re all completely different.
      Usually ICICI cards give very low reward rate.
      Please read the reviews of each to get an idea.
