5000 Bonus Points on YES Bank Credit Cards – Feb 2018

By | February 9, 2018

Here’s new personalised offer from Yesbank to grab 5000 Bonus reward points up and above your regular points earn rate. Yesbank has been running such spend based offers almost every month like we’ve seen before and this one is more identical to it.

Bonus Points on YES Bank Credit Cards

Yesbank Credit Cards: 5000 Bonus Reward Points Offer

  • Type: Spend based
  • Spend Threshold: Personalised (high for many)
  • Excluded Spend Type: Fuel spends
  • Bonus Points: 5,000 Points
  • Offer Period: 9th – 28th Feb 2018
  • Fulfillment: 30th April 2018
  • Effective Savings: 4% & above
  • Source

Thanks to Aman & other readers to notify me about the offer. I personally haven’t received this offer probably because i’ve got upgraded to Yesbank Exclusive card and it seems the system needs more than 2 months now to analyse the spend pattern to come up with a target spend.

The effective savings is Rs.1250 on reaching the spend requirement, hence you may need to crunch the numbers on your own to see if it makes sense for you. It seems the spend requirement is quite high for many that its mostly a miss. How about your’s?


This is one of the many spend based promos that Yesbank runs for quite a time. If you do-not hold yesbank credit card or just incase if you need more reasons to get one, check out my previous article on: Why Should you Apply for a YES Bank Credit Card

Did you receive this offer and how much was your spend requirement? Feel free to share your thoughts in comments below.

    Got the SMS and email for this offer yesterday. My spend threshold is 85k 🙁 not really worth spending that much for only INR 1250 worth rewards.

    1. Siddharth Post author

      Looks like everyone got high requirement. Or maybe they’re trying to stretch the limits. Lets see what others have got.

  2. Murali

    I too received mail and limit is very high to spend from 9th February 2018 to 28th February 2018

    “5000 Bonus Reward Points on spending a total of INR 155000”

  3. Prashant Gupta

    For me its Rs115000. Not worth trying. Already soent more than 1L this month before the period starts🙁

  4. Jay

    195k limit for me.. Joke. I would never spend around 2l for just Rs. 1250 worth of points.

    1. Siddharth Post author

      Looks like everyone got it except us 😀
      But i guess you’ll get it on email as there might be problem with Intl. SMS delivery. Any hope?

      1. Abhishek Roy

        No, I don’t think so, as we received last offer of 5000 RPs in December on both the sms as well as email in December. That time, we were in UK. So I guess, Yesbank has left both of us in soup this time. 😛

          1. Rohit

            I am YFE card holder and i have also not received any offer…..

  5. Urluck

    My offer Sms read as –
    Dear Valued Cardmember, get 5000 Bonus Reward Points on spending a total of Rs. 15000 or more with your YES FIRST Credit Card ending with ****. Valid from 9th – 28th Feb’18.T&C:

  6. Rahul Kashyap

    I got for 20k. Can others inform on types of eligible spends, is wallet loading allowed ??

    1. Vivek Agrawal

      5000 Bonus Reward Points on spending a total of Rs.15000.

      I have the same question. Can i do the wallet trick?

  7. SaurabhN

    For me target is 1.65 lacs on my YFE card… Thats just too high for this month for me 🙁

    1. Siddharth Post author

      Lol. That’s crazy amount. Maybe your spending pattern is very high as well.

  8. Varun

    For me its 50k. Its higher than the previous threshold limit but i will give it a shot. Still 5% reward rate for me.

  9. Suresh

    I have got this Yes Preferred credit card after opening Yes First Account recently (3 weeks back).
    And now I got this offer for a spend of 35000 only.
    Though I am liking the offers , the Online Interface seems to a bit old.
    I am still checking how I should pay utility/insurance premium bill through YFP credit card.

    Do we have to pay directly from merchant site?

  10. Rahul Shrivastav

    I got target of 35K.

    Sid your assumption that they take a couple of months to understand spend patterns is some what misplaced. My card got activated on 31st Jan with only a couple of expense between 1-2K, as I was chasing targets on another card, still I get 35 K.

    1. Siddharth Post author

      Maybe. But that’s how it worked on my preferred card as well which took about 2 months. Couldn’t conclude though as i spent just ~Rs.100 or so in my first stmt cycle. Lets see, anyways i’ve asked the guys to check what’s happening.

  11. Ajesh

    For me it is 2.4 lacs. Not really worth. They should increase bonus points based increased Targets , instead of flat 5k points for all targets

  12. Arjun Mahajan

    3 cards in the family and got the offer as follows for all:
    1st card: Rs 1,75,000 (15 months old) – Spent most
    2nd card: Rs 90,000 (15 months old) – Spent decent
    3rd card: Rs 15,000 (2 months old) – Hardly any major spends till now

  13. Tathagat

    I got 70k this time around ! Last time it was 15k ! Drastic increase.since i have spent a lot this month before this offer, don’t think i would be gunning for this offer. This might also lower the threshold for the march offer. I am pretty sure that there is going to one for FY end.

  14. Tathagat

    My target has been increased to 70k from 15k of the last time. Don’t think I’ll be gunning for this offer. This may also lower my threshold for the march offer. I am pretty sure that there would be one for FY end.

  15. Hesaru

    YFE holder here. For me the spend requirement is ₹60000. It was 25k during the last offer.

  16. Harshvardhan

    for me its 120k. Likely their method is to make you spend double of you spent in the last month.
    Yes also has offer of double reward points on insurance premiums paid during Jan-Mar 2018, would that spend in the next 20 days counted towards this offer?

  17. Ameya

    My target is INR 40,000….Last month I got a SMS from yes bank that you can earn double reward point on insurance payments upto 31st March…now if i make insurance payment will i be eligible for both double reward points + 5000 bonus ?

  18. Praveen Perumalla

    This promotion would be a failure. Some learning for YES team.

  19. Vinay

    What is the basis of 25% rupee value per point??? I guess, we dont have the option of statement credits in this.

  20. Gagan

    Indeed this time they increased the threshold. For me, last time the threshold was 30K (Dec’17) but this time it is 75K.

    Can anyone review ” MMTDOUBLEBLACK” membership. MMT claims a savings of ₹50,000 P.A on this membership.

    More insight on this.


    1. Mouli

      MMT will take care of the cancellation charges of your first 5 Flight tickets and hotel bookings and there are lot of catch in that.

      Flight ticket in your name alone eligible for getting the cancellation charges back
      If you book 3 rooms , you will get only one room charge
      They will refund the amount in MMT wallet and not to your card account

      I don’t see this is that worthy instead MMTBLACK is more useful , if you get it free (I got it free through HDFC DCB )

    2. Sujit

      I had bought this for 1499 when it was initially launched. I get 10 flight and 10hotel cancellation free. This has now been revised to 5 for the new joinees.

      Canceled one flight just for fun and got full refund. The only catch is you should be the passenger and booking has to be in your exact name that you register while subscribing to double black.

      MMT black is nothing exclusive but just a loyalty program where MMT offers spend based rewards.

  22. Hari

    Get 100% (max 5000 RPs) bonus RP on paying Insurance premiums using Yes First credit cards. Validity 1st January 2018 to 31st March 2018.

    off topic:

  23. Pankaj Khandelwal

    5000 Bonus Reward Points on spending a total of Rs.20000
    I got low limit as I have very less spending on this card. I have yes bank prosperity edge card. I don’t find it very attractive.

  24. RK goyal

    I have not received 9th feb offer …till last time I have received all …
    Is this for all card holders or limited

  25. Vinod Kannan

    Hey… HDFC has sent me a mail stating that ” Complimentary MMTBLACK membership – the invite-only Loyalty Programme by MakeMyTrip, exclusively for you!
    Dear Vinod Kannan,
    Being a Regalia customer has its own privileges. Presenting to you MMT Black that takes your travelling experience to a whole new level”.

  26. Vinod Kannan

    I dont know if everybody has received d offer… But it says Complimentary MMTBLACK being a Regalia card holder.

  27. vyom aggarwal

    my limit is 10k.. probably due to the fact that i have held the card for over an year and used it once for i puny transaction…

  28. Parag

    I have applied for yes bank business card but my application got rejected :(.
    I hold DCB and never had any default. My ITR is also double thn required for business card.
    How to find out reason for rejection ?

  29. Majumdar

    OT, but since there is no forum, a few updates on my ICICI cards.

    1. I have got a DragonPass on my Visa Jet Airways Safiro Card. Surprisingly, many of my colleagues who subscribed to the same around the time as me have not got it.
    2. 3X rewards points on ICICI CCs for Insurance payments about 10K (upto 3K RPs) uptill March 31.


    1. Siddharth Post author

      Thanks for the updates. #2 might help a few.

    2. Ashish Nikhare

      I also got this card 1 month back and received the statement today. I had not applied from JetPrivilige site nor during any offer period. Still, I got a fees discount. The applicable joining fees was Rs. 2500 + GST. Also received the VISA Variant & DragonPass. Learning things from you all. Thanks & Keep up the good work.

  30. Raj

    Nowadays no promotion offers from yes bank credit cards. Is anyone getting ??

    1. Siddharth Post author

      It usually comes during festive/shopping season, though got extended for a many months last time. Lets see if they come up with any for this travel season.

  31. Kiran

    Received my 5000 points for February spends on 4th May via SMS confirmation.
