That’s bit pricier than ICICI Jet Sapphiro and Amex Jet card, but maybe worth it if you really know where and when to redeem the miles. For god sake, all Indusind cards bears a heavy joining fee, hopefully they put some relaxation on it soon.

    Hi, as mentioned in article, it is being offered free for jet platinum members. Same is true for ICICI and American express card. Can I have all three free of cost being jet platinum member.

    Vinod K,

    That is true. But there is one differentiator for ICICI/IndusInd Jet Cards v/s HDFC and AMEX Jet Cards. For the former the joining and renewal benefits (JP Miles + Base fare waived ticket) are given even if the joining/renewal fee are waived off (as in case of Plats)- for the latter set that is not true. That makes the former more valuable for Plats.

    The only way HDFC/AMEX Jet cards wud score over IndusInd is that the former do have lots of discounts with several online and offline merchants, IndusInd has relatively few such discounts.

    Regards

    I’m not using IndusInd card for fuel txn, the reason is service on surcharge is not reverted in IndusInd cards but same is reverted in icici card. I won’t get any points in HDFC cards for fuel txn.
