Hands on with Amazon Pay ICICI Bank Credit Card

By | April 1, 2019

If at all there is one credit card that suits best for beginners, that must be Amazon Pay Credit Card by ICICI Bank. While I don’t really plan to use the card much, I got it primarily to experience the application process and of-course to add new plastic to my collection.

One fine day, when I opened the Amazon home page, a banner showed up, asking me to apply for the Amazon pay Credit Card.

I also opened the application page link on Amazon app and I was now able to see the Apply Now option being enabled there as well.

Amazon Pay Credit Card by ICICI Bank

Application Process

  • It was a 4 page process & it hardly took 1 minute to Apply.
  • The Virtual card was made available for instant use.
  • Amazon App & Net Banking also shows the new card in realtime.
  • The limit was shared with my other ICICI Credit Cards (Jet Sapphiro Amex & Visa)
  • The Physical Card received just in 2 DAYS. This is the fastest I’ve ever seen.
  • The design was Good enough for a Free card.

The sweetest part is, there is no CIBIL enquiry. Its amazing to see how ICICI did the integration with Amazon to make this entire process super fast and simple.

I wish every other credit card company does the application process as simple as this. Here are some of the images through the application process.

How to become Eligible?

I initially thought I cracked the code, because I got this invite just after spending over Rs.50K in the month. But then I came to know that many others too got the offer the same day, so that “may not” be the eligibility.

That aside, I did few things when this credit card was initially launched. Like, I made test payments using all my ICICI credit/debit cards to see if that triggers the eligibility.

So, somehow I was added to their system during their Financial Year End push. I’m sure most of you might be eligible for the Amazon Pay Credit Card by now. If not, you may try things that i did above.

What’s more?

I got an SMS post 2 days of application that my Amazon pay account got credited with Rs.300, which was the promo for applying the Credit Card. I didn’t even notice it while applying 😀

So, basically I got paid Rs.300 for getting this free card, just like the Amex MRCC and Amex Plat Travel offers wherein you can get paid ~Rs.3000 for applying, for free!

    My application got rejected for this card, I have high purchase history and good relationship with icici saving account and credit card. Eligibility criteria is a mistery. Will reapply and month and see!

      I think this is something to do with your Amazon spends and nothing to do with ICICI relationship.

        Hi Siddharth,
        I don’t think the eligibility criteria has got anything to do with Amazon spends. I have been spending a few thousands on Amazon every month since the last 2 years or so for my monthly groceries and daily use household products. Still when I applied for this card about 3 months back, my application was rejected.

        I also have a relationship with ICICI (savings account) for more than 10 years now. But I did not have an existing ICICI credit card at the time of applying for ICICI Amazon Pay card.

        I think the eligibility is linked to having an exisiting ICICI credit card. I see from your application process, you were asked for your existing ICICI credit card number. You have also mentioned that your card limit was shared with your other ICICI Credit Cards (Jet Sapphiro Amex & Visa).

        From the above 2 points (asking for existing ICICI credit card number and sharing limit with existing ICICI credit card), I am guessing that the eligibility criteria is linked to having an existing ICICI credit card.

        The other factors like existing relationship with Amazon (purchasing regularly every month from Amazon) and existing relationship with ICICI Bank (having ICICI savings bank account) did not help me in getting the ICICI Amazon Pay credit card. As I mentioned earlier, my application got rejected about 3 months back.

        I was told that I can apply again only after 6 months. Since then 3 months have passed. I will try again after 3 months. In the meantime, I have now got another ICICI credit card. So hoping that this time my application for ICICI Amazon Pay credit card will be accepted 🙂

          I never had any banking relationship with ICICI Bank. Though I’m a Amazon customer for more than 4 years, my purchases were intermittent. Though my cibil score is more than 830, as per the author, no cibil enquiry is done. I have only a Citibank credit card. But still I got this offer on my banner and when applied, got instantly approved for a limit 153k. So, we don’t know what criteria they are using to offer or approve the cards.

          yes dear you are right it’s exactly same thing happen with me also but fortunately i do have icici credit card so they approved it in a second and its start to reflect in icici app also same time before receive card.
          one thing i want to inform you that its better to apply to icici bank streight for normal credit card which is also lifetime free ,in amazonicici pay card holder wont get mostly discount from other sites like flipkart because they are not allowing discount for commercial card corporate card and retail partners card so its better to focus on getting offer instead of rewards always rewards are lesser than offer

          I have a couple of credit cards but have no relationship with ICICI bank. I received the invitation on 20.06.2019 and I applied on the same date. On 21.06.2019 the verification executive visited my office, he took a photo of my driving licence and n photo of me post which I got a SMS that the application has been sent for further processing. After that there has been no update. Even after repeated follow up they are unable to tell me whether they have received my documents.

          Looking at the service while on boarding a new customer I am Having second thoughts on whether to continue with the card if at all they find my documents.

            Update: the status has now been to changed to verification complete.

            Application under process- process incomplete.

            Also there is a CIBIl query in my credit report.

          3. Sid

            Finally after an uphill battle of 1 month and 20 days with the ICICI customer care I finally received a msg that the card has been approved.

            I have received the login id and have been asked to generate password. I did the same however now in order to generate the cc pin it is asking me CVV no. However I have not received any communication regarding the CVV no.

            How do you go about this?

    Congrats for another card. I also got approved and also got Rs. 200 in Amazon pay. Like you I was unaware of this offer. Feeling happy.

            Exactly. Their Netbanking /App did confuse me and continues to confuse me when land on the credit card tab every now and then. It’s indeed single, shared limit.

      2. Manu

        Limit Is not shared Siddarth. The reason for this is..i had 2 cards earlier with shared limit. My Amazon card showed the same limit.. But after usage of older cards the available limit changed for them but this remained constant. I rechecked it by using this card, now older cards show diffente available limit in comparison to the limit available on this card.

    There is nothing to do with your Amazon spends at all, I have applied thru my freind’s amazon account which has got invited without any single purchase in life span of that Amazon account. We can take over that Amazon account by changing mobile number and email id in Amazon account.

          As per my knowledge, it’s shared limit. If you do transaction on any of the card it’ll be reduced from 3L, even though in Netbanking it’s shown as 3L for both cards in remaining/unused limit.

        Well, I believe the new amazon CC is not sharing the limit with my existing card atleast for me. My CIBIL , Crif Reports shows 3 ICICI CC ac , the new amazon CC has a recent open date. The balance on ac is also reported accordingly.
        Also I see ICICI paylater is being reported as Credit Card though the credit limit of 10k limit is not reported.

    I think this card is not being offered to to the people who got their ICICI credit card against Fd. I have a Coral icici CC against fd from almost 6 months with 5l limit and I do not have the offer even have over 150 orders from amazon from past 6 months. Considering doing full KYC soon.

    My Amazon pay card has same limit as existing card but when I made purchase from Amazon card …it didn’t reduce my limit on other cards….hence I think limit is not shared.

    One more interesting thing…. ICICI pay later account is being reported to CIBIL as credit card..now my CIBIL will improve even faster.

    If you already have an ICICI bank credit card just note this.
    1. The credit limit of Amazon Pay ICICI bank credit card is not shared with your old ICICI bank credit card. These credit limits are independent.
    2. The statement and payment due dates may be different for both ICICI credit cards . I discovered it just in time because of Walnut app reminder else I would have missed it. So be careful while managing multiple ICICI bank credit cards. You have to make two payments / give two standing instructions, one for each card.

    I also got this card, and offer of 750/- .

    But unfortunately this card got hacked and one day @ 1030 PM i got 3 transactions totaling to 42$ in itunes stores. Luckly I was awake and I immediately blocked the card. I have used this card only at 2 places, Amazon and on another Indian website which claims secured website, nowhere swiped also. Not sure from where they got hacked. After that I have not renewed the card

    I recieved this card way back in early December 2018 as part of the first beta users for this program. Initially I was surprised to see Amazon entering the payments segment. My experience of spends around 1L+ so far, the rewards are really good (credited as Amazon Pay balance only) and because they give 5X/3X rewards for the website, Amazon is ensuring your stickyness towards the company.

      The limit of my ICICI HPCL Coral American express card is 45K only. At the time of application, I wasn’t asked to enter the card details.. They checked my CIBIL report and sent an executive for verification at my office address. I got approval message 3 days later. It was a pleasant surprise to know that the limit approved was 500K..

    I personally hate ICICI. Their apps/shared limit is too confusing. I had Jet Rubyx, discontinued and went with ICICI MMT.

    Yet unable to link that as don’t have savings account.
    Whatever said and done, the revert and response from Amex/Citi etc is definitely amazing and makes you continue to use those cards.

    I am not sure about using this card TBH. I mean I get it 5% is great but more often, there are Amazon offers on other banks. Hence would rather use my diners premium/Scb ultimate over this. Your thoughts?

    P.S- even got SCB ultimate so easily but that DCB :3 that’s out of my reach always. Even upgrade from YFP unable to get.

    I have an invite too for Amazon pay icici card but didn’t get any other icici card because of their bad reward system. Did any one get the card without holding credit card with icici? Is this card worth if we have diners club black since we get Rs 5 for 150 spent plus 10x if offer exist. The only reason this card is good is EMI but again we don’t get points for that.

      I got this card without ever having used ICICI Credit card in the past. Only other card I have has a limit of INR 56,000 (HSBC Visa Platinum, Got it in 2015 when I started working).

      I never used CCs much after getting the HSBC card though. Everything changed when a friend of mine told me about the AmazonPay ICICI CC. So I checked my amazon and there it was, a LTF free card with a INR 750 joining bonus. I immediately applied through the simple application process. Instant e card generated with a limit of INR 1,30,000. I was delighted. This was mid January 2019.

      Now I hold these cards in a period of 3 months
      1. HSBC – LTF
      2. ICICI Amazon Pay – LTF
      3. Amex everyday spends(limit 3,33,000) – Annual Fees 499
      4. Citi Premiermiles Visa (Limit 2,26,000) Annual fees – 3000
      5. Citi Corporate (Limit 3,30,000) (Which I don’t use much since the rewards aren’t good) (FREE)

      I keep traveling for work(Domestic Flights+Hotels+Food+Cabs) and all these cards certainly are useful. For e.g. My spends have already crossed 2,20,000 in the last two months.(Personal+Official). I am thinking I will close the Amex card as I want to play with citi premiermiles for now. Any other card that you guys suggest.

      A big change from a cash/debit spend focused person to utilizing credit optimally and reaping the benefits out of the CC rewards. Still learning to maximize my gains.

      Big Tip that I found recently : Cred app, from which I have killed the bill worth INR 5000 ( 3x got INR 1000 as benefit on Cred app)

    Hi everyone,
    I got invitation for this card recently. The credit limit is shared with the existing credit limit. The virtual card was created immediately and the physical card was delivered within a week. The card design was pathetic.
    Rs.300/- Amazon pay balance was added.
    All of you please make a note that you won’t get any reward points/ Amazon pay balance for converting your transactions into EMI/NO COST EMI including Amazon spends; not exciting. (Read the t&c clearly)
    I think the invitation for this card is not linked with the spends of Amazon but, it’s directly linked with the existing credit card. My Jet sapphiro credit card is 3 months old and my spends are good.
    I feel that it doesn’t make much sense to have the Jet sapphiro at this juncture as the jet is in deep waters.
    I don’t find a single flight from Hyderabad to any of the destinations of the country in the coming 2/3 months.
    Can we hold this card by cancelling the existing Jet sapphiro Card?.

    Hi,
    As per my experience AMAZON checking eligibility by taking your registered mobile number in AMAZON account and comparing same with ICICI customer database. If it matches then they get to know you have an existing credit card relationship with ICICI.

    I had done purchase more than 5-6 Lakh in last few years at AMAZON , having a ICICI card and savings account but I was not getting APPLY button for this card at AMAZON. Then I analyze how others are getting invite why not me. I found AMAZON registered mobile number was other that which I have with ICICI. I changed mobile number in AMAZON to the one which I have in ICICI……after 2 days APPLY button enabled !!

        Mine amazon pay card invite came after 3 months of holding an ICICI credit card. So if your mobile no. in amazon account and existing ICICI card account is same, I think this may be the expected minimum time line to get the invite.

        Better still, use your existing ICICI credit card for 1-2 transactions at amazon. This may trigger the invite faster.

      Hi Saumendra,
      I don’t think so. It might have happened in your case. But, in reality, it’s not like that. I strongly believe that there is a direct connection with the existing credit card. I spent a lot in Amazon. But, after the vintage of my ICICI card was more than 3 months, then it’s triggered.
      As per the t&c of the Amazon Pay card, it’s clearly mentioned that we’re not going to get any rewards/Amazon pay balance for EMI/ NO COST EMI too.
      ICICI slashing MAB charges inspite of having WEALTH MANAGEMENT status. When I approached them regarding this, they are clueless. There is no use with the Jet sapphiro right now. It’s better to discard the card.

      Dear Rohit
      Bcoz its clearly written in tnc of the card. What you have been told is verbal reply which can’t be relied upon. Specially if you are making big transactions on EMI and later denied points on it as per tncs, you can do little and hence missed opportunity.

      Better take this in writing from amazon cc if they are sure about it, which I bet they won’t give. If they do then we all cardholders (of amazon pay ICICI card) have a reason to say “CHEERS”.

    I tried to purchase an AC through amazon. There is an offer running of Rs 1500 instant discount of on icici card. I thought of using icici amazon pay card. At card entry page it shows the discount available of 1500 but on the final confirmation it removed this discount and shows that discount is just 5x of amazon pay. So it look likes double dip is not possible. The card does not provide over and above any promotions run by ICICI card.

    If I changed to EMI payment, I was getting Rs 1500 off, but in that case 5x rewards points are not valid.
    So it liked you are just restricted to get 5X reward only and cannot combine with other icici offers.

      I used this card during super value day recently and have already recd. 15% cashback as amazon pay balance. 5X reward points as amazon pay balance will come after card statement generation only. So I can say that double dip is also possible maybe not always.

    Thanks for the info and that’s bad move by icici for not giving additional 1500 off. With hdfc I can get 10x+10%disocunt +if any cash back offer by Amazon pay and I can repeat the same with debit card too during the same Amazon sale period. What about bill payments like broadband? Do we get 2x points. Also can we avail 2x points +100 off with BMS? But compared to other icici cards I feel this is better than payback points. Would you recommend to take this card? I only wish there were points with EMI too.

    Can anyone please confirm if I opt for EMI from the merchant (paytmmall), will I be getting reward points for that?

    Also please confirm if this card falls under the category of corporate or commercial cards. Thank you.

    I had read this post on this site and got inspired to apply from the link. Logged in and found the apply now option which was not coming before. But I had a different application experience. First off, I had connected my icici account to Amazon upi and that’s the reason I think I got the invite. Further unlike others, it said my pre approved limit is 3.3L and it dint ask me for icici credit card number. Seems strange. I also have a coral credit card with 1.5L limit but never used it on Amazon yet. I didn’t get a card number generated instantly. Went through normal application process and a guy verified my ID and address proof. Not sure if I’ll have a Cibil check too. Anyone had this kinda experience when applying?

        i got a call from icici for asking why i have not completed the application process. I told them i already hold a credit card for which she replied that your card must be new thats why it is not asking for cc number and instead showing a form to fill up all the details. (I got the coral card reissued last month).
        How long u r having a relationship with icici? Are the mobile no. at amazon and icici same?
        I read in comments only that the application is open to all now.

    I had a chat with Amazon customer care and they said it’s not necessary to have icici credit card in order to apply for amazon pay credit card so might be now they have updated the site ui . Bank might be just cross checking with your relationship with the bank and give the card accordingly.

    @ankit Verma
    I read the T&C again and it clearly states that 5x is in addition to any other normal offers which means we will have to get both. Also no points for EMI transactions.

    I was resisting this til yesterday.
    They have upped the offer by 200rs. i.e., 500 amazon cash for prime members if applied and I did.
    Waiting for this card. Got 2.5L limit.
    This will be my backup card in case indusind iconia amex is not accepted, as i get 1% cashback. This will for sure save a huge amount if used for buying appliances on amazon.

    @rohit
    Yes, that’s right, I got a higher limit probably because I hold a icic privilege banking account. The card is auto linked to the netbanking user ID. Now I am interested to know if anyone got visa signature or better versions. There are specific offers running for visa signature and infinite so it would be great if this card offers them too based on the approved credit limit. Because hdfc credit card guys said if the limit is above 3L, then it is mostly a visa signature card and normal visa can’t have more than 3L limit. Is it true?

    Hello siddharth,
    I am big fan of your posts here..Now coming to this Amazon pay card..I have got the invite in 17 Jan 2019 and I applied and also got 750 as promo offer ..
    Let me tell you one thing, though the limits of cards are same (icici and Amazon pay) but both are independent cards…check your credit score from cibil and I got assured that both the cards are independent of each other…

    Hi,
    My application was approved and card got generated with CVV. But amazon pay balance is not updated. My amazon pay is not KYC updated. As per the FAQ, KYC is not required if you are an existing ICICI bank customer.
    Please suggest.

    Are you talking about sign up 750? Did you talk to Amazon customer care? There is a * next to 750 but no where it is mentioned about 750 on what basis it would be credited. Can other user who already have got their card can let us know on is there any conditions for 750 for prime customers.

    i hold coral card & got amazon pay card recently, although limit is shown separately for each card in app & net banking, its a shared limit of old cards and amazon pay, confirmed with customer care as i maxed out my limit. icici has separate team for amazon pay card, as my call was transfered to them from the normal customer car officer. If by any chance you get higher limit on amazon pay then previous card, chances are that of limit increased and shared between old and new.

    I have a ICICI bank a/c, a coral credit card & an Amazon a/c. After reading this article today, I logged on to Amazon and lo the offer was there. It really was a 3 step process & I have my Amazon Pay CC. It shows up in my ICICI Bank account and the physical card is expected in 7 days. The limit is the same as my existing credit card.

    My husband has a ICICI bank a/c, a ICICI platinum credit card & an Amazon a/c. He did not get the offer.
    So really dont know the criteria for being selected for this.

    I’m just looking forward to the Amazon Pay credits.

      The physical card is in the post, but I got Rs. 500/- on Amazon Pay, so its really getting 500/- bucks for applying for a card.

    I regularly checked the link on the Amazon App during January – April, 2019. However, the ‘Apply Now’ button was unavailable for me. Following was my status:
    1) I was Amazon Prime Member
    2) I had not completed full KYC
    3) I was not having an ICICI savings account or any other credit card issued by ICICI.
    4) I used to regularly order through Amazon or use Amazon Pay balance for Swiggy / bill payments etc., but not that I had spent over a lakh in past few months or so.
    5) My location was Delhi
    6) I was holding Citi Cashback credit card (with limit of around Rs. 2.50 lakh for past 2 years) and Amex MRCC Card (with limit of Rs. 3.50 lakh for past 1 year)

    During the last week of April, suddenly the invite button was available and I quickly applied for the same. Here’s the brief process that was followed:
    1) After clicking on the button, I had to provide few details like name, address, date of birth, PAN, residential address, employer name (luckily, my employer name figured in the drop down list. One may never know if the application got successfully approved only if all the parameters got ticked) etc. After inputting those details, I was displayed the following message “Thank You for applying for Amazon Pay ICICI Bank Credit Card.
    your application is under process. The Executive will call you within 5 days to schedule an appointment & will visit at the below address within 7 days.” Though, the process did not ask for details of any other existing credit cards.
    2) Received a call on April 29 at around 11:30 am from ICICI and a verification visit was scheduled next day at my residential address between 12-1pm.
    3) Executive reached my residential address at around 4pm on April 30. He scanned my original aadhaar and pan card, clicked my photo and entered few other KYC details, all done from his backend ICICI app on his mobile. Thereafter, I received an SMS from ICICI and was also asked by the executive to send an SMS ‘AMZ YES’ to the number 9215676766 from my mobile to complete the application. I was also asked to sign a physical one pager form which was basically acknowledging that I have read all the terms and conditions of the card. There was no furnishing of photocopies or photographs. Also, I was not asked to furnish any income documents nor were they scanned.
    4) Soon, in the presence of the executive, I received an SMS that my application form was successfully completed and sent for further processing. Similar status was being displayed on the Amazon App. I was told by the executive that there will be no further verification/visit at the office address. I remember that, while filling out the details on the Amazon App during the initial application process, I had the option to choose the visit at either my residential address or office address. I had chosen my residential address.
    5) Status remained the same for next 48 hours or so.
    5) On May 02, at around 4:45pm, received an email and SMS that my card has been approved. After about half an hour, I got an SMS with details of user id with which I can login to see my card details etc.
    6) On May 04, at around 11:15 am, I received the physical card at my residence through blue dart (Had received an SMS in the morning from bluedart that card was out for delivery).

    Following are few other details of the approved card:
    1) Received the credit limit of Rs. 3,03,000/-
    2) There is visa branding (but there is no mention of visa variant i.e., whether it is classic, gold, platinum, signature etc.) So I assume, its just a normal visa credit card.
    3) Successfully added the card on the Cred App on 06 May. Cred initiated a token credit of Rs. 1 to the card and it was credited on the same day to the card.

    So, the invite became available to me and the card got approved despite not having ICICI savings account or ICICI credit card.
    Hope the above information will be useful to others.

      And I forgot to mention that the leaflet which came with the physical card clearly mentions that “If you already hold an ICICI Bank Credit Card, credit limit of your existing Credit Card will be shared with your new Credit Card.”

  41. Pradeep

    i just checked my cibil report, coral card is shown as separate a/c and amazon pay card is shown as new separate a/c, although limit is shared between 2 cards, each card shows combined limit individually. so if anyone has 2lakhs shared limit, its 4lakhs in the eyes of cibil.

    1. if any of you guys plan to cancel icici bank old card, think twice as your old long history will be closed. even if you are not using it, keeping it for merchant offers is a good idea.

    2. And one more thing if you’re going to apply new credit card, taking cool off period could be better as amazon pay card report is new, for me its just 2 months old as in payment status section of cibil.

      You can ask them to link your card with account which has amazon prime to get 5% reward on amazon transactions.

      Amazon has opened up for all customers to apply for this card. They are doing CIBIL check through the pan card detail we enter on the application page. No physical verification needed. I got the card approved within a day and got separate card even already having ICICI Visa Platinum card. Both cards have different credit limit… Both are not linked to each other.

      Lets see how much benefit am going to get in this card. 🙂

    Pleasant surprise was INR 750 credited as Amazon Pay balance for opening this card (Prime user here).
    I wanted to know whether loading Amazon Pay will be eligible for 1% cashback (as 5% cashback clearly puts this rider).

      I have once again checked FAQs on ICICI website of this card, just to be sure.
      Last question in FAQ is ‘How and what do I earn on purchasing through Amazon Pay ICICI Bank Credit Card?’
      Answer to this question says, loading Amazon pay will get u 2% cashback.
      It is understandable, as Amazon pay once loaded can only be used on Amazon pay partner, the category which gets u 2% cashback irrespective of whether you are Prime or not.
      Hope that helps.

ICICI customer care repeatedly asking for my name address mobile number and application number on email, given a half dozen of times. Its just a waste of time. Amazon customer care always ask to confirm from icici side. Its a total chaos friends, totally unprofessional approach. We may suffer in future by such an unprofessional lenders for sure.

      It takes some time for the thing to be updated. Even after document pick up and you getting a ‘successfully picked up documents” message, it’ll still take time till it is started to be processed by the customer care. I guess, they have got heavy number of applications and hence the delay, but rest assured that the application will be processed. Once it is processed, you’ll get sms and email if your application was successful or not. At Least this happened in my case, so I’ll request you and others like you, to wait for at least 10 days post document pick up.

    I have received this card today (applied on 21st June, physical verification on 1st July) with Rs5L CC Limit – I had a salary account and credit card with ICICI about 8-9 years ago and there is no relationship again until now.
    Q1. Though they have shared my user id (which was the 8yrs old one) on my mobile number, I am not able to log into netbanking portal as it says registered mobile number is wrong.
    Q2. This question might be primitive, but just want to know if ‘Amazon Pay ICICI CC’ be used for any other ICICI CC Offers, say on Flipkart/Myntra/so on for cashbacks (just like any other ICICI CC)?

      I had the same problem as you did. They were so thick headed that even after explaining to them that this old acc of mine is no longer in use, they kept on linking my username to that acc and since I didn’t have the old debit gard I just couldn’t log onto my new credit card acc. It took multiple escalations and almost two months before the mistake was rectified

      Raghu, I too had the same problem as I held a savings salary bank account with them in the past. My problem is now solved. I’ll tell you how. Do exactly what I say, there is a high chance it’ll be sorted out.
      1. First call the Amazon Pay ICICI credit card number. It’s a special dedicated number given at the back of your card.
      2. After the card verification, ask them the Customer ID for the credit card. It will be a new Customer ID other than the previous ID.
      3. After getting the customer ID, you are supposed to reset the password online through net banking interface. I faced a problem here, when I tried to generate the password for the new Customer ID I received from the ICICI CC, I was shown an error message on the website that no mobile number is attached to this Customer ID.
      4. I then called the customer care of Amazon pay ICICI card and told them my customer ID after card verification. I told them to link m mobile number to the existing customer care given by them. They confirmed that Mobile number was not linked (even though I was receiving all other sms for the Credit card).
      5. They took the request for linking the mobile number to the Customer ID. I received an sms that the same will be linked in one business day. But it was linked in 1-2 hours only.
      6. Once the linking is done, you can set password online and voila!! You are inside the net banking and can now see the card.
      Let me know how it goes.

        I did the same till point 5. Inspite of that they kept on linking my old acc to my credit card. The whole process was so nerve racking that at times i thought about returning the card. Only after escalation and generation of 3 different complaint nos was i able to resolve this in 2 months
        I hope other ppl fare better

        Thanks so much Abhishek, for a detailed explanation.
        In my case, for the old user id, the actual ICICI cust care (not AP one), have first delinked my old unused phone number (which took 2 days) and then I called up Amazon Pay cust care, where they linked my present number to which all SMSes were coming (took 2 days for this). After that, I could easily login into netbanking.
        However, for ICICI iMobile app, as my savings account is now in a dormant status and doesn’t have the corresponding debit card as well with me, they asked me to visit nearest ICICI bank and get it activated/closed.

        P.S.: Wish there is an email notification for any updates on our posts on this blog!

    My documents have been collected on the 11th of July 2019. The agent took 2 months payslips and 3 months account statement along with the Aadhaar Card. He said the documents that need to be collected comes once the user fills the details on Amazon. He uploaded all the copies of in front of me. The application did ask for the office address, official mail, income details, and a reference person name and phone number. Post that, I instantly got an SMS stating that the application has been sent for further processing.
    The status tracking page has also been updated now it is showing Application Under Process but just below that it is showing Process Incomplete. So, can anyone tell if this process incomplete just normal or should I start chasing ICICI customer support?

      So, 5 days later I received a message stating “Dear Customer, your Amazon Pay ICICI Bank Credit Card application has been declined. Pls apply again after 1 month from the date of your current application.”
      This was quite strange as I applied for Amex MRCC on the same day and it has been approved. I have a good CIBIL Score with no late payment and credit cards from HDFC, HSBC, Citi, and Amex.

        For MRCC, did you apply online and had to give an income proof? My Citi card was approved with just salary amount declaration without proof and was wondering if Amex uses a similar system too (approval on basis of CIBIL without proof).

    I applied from your link and I was approved as soon as I applied for card as I was already having a credit card from icici.
    And also instantly got 750 cashback for this free card. That’s awesome.
    It said I will receive physical card within a week

    Is icici Amazon pay credit card useful for other expenditure like utility payment, insurance payment , electricity payment, mobile and dth recharge. And also other shopping.

      Since you can do all these payments via Amazon Pay where you get 2% rewards for this, this is good. For all other shopping its flat 1% cashback.
      Cards like SBI Prime give 5% RP for utility bills and so on, on standing instruction, so depending on your preference and usage, you may choose accordingly

    Hello everyone,

    I had applied for this card in Dec 2018 but was declined and was told to reapply after 6 months. I am again trying to apply now, after entering the mobile number in the application page i receive an OTP, and after entering the OTP a page comes up which says that “Application already exists with your mobile number”. After this i contacted both amazon and icici customer care but they are clueless and are trying to pin it on each other.

    Has anyone faced similar scenario.

    Thanks.

    When I tried to apply for this card, A page to enter the address details are showing after the OTP verification. Bu when I my pin code, it shows a message like “This service is not available for your pincode. We are working towards enabling it soon.”. I am from Calicut, Kerala. I tried with many pin codes in different cities from Kerala. All are the same. I have an ICICI Savings AC, Fixed Deposit, Trading Account, Pay Later AC, etc. Anybody else from Kerala applied for this card without an existing ICICI credit card?

    Looks the card is currently available in 35 cities only !

    Amazon should have made it available in all cities where an Icici bank branch is available

    As of now, this Amazon Pay card processing is in a big mess. It seems they are over subscribed and are unable to cope. I applied for this card on July 12th and it was immediately approved. But even after 18 days I have been getting repeated calls by their Customer Care for document Verification. 4 times I gave them appointment and they never came. Every time I had to wait for them the whole day at Home. Finally, today a person came for verification. But in the application form which he showed, there were errors in the way my name was spelled and also errors in the way the name will show on the credit Card. So he went back without verification. Now they want me to send them an email explaining their error to them. They don’t even know to which email I should send my complaint. They want me to look it up in their website!!.
    This is the kind of service I am getting from ICICI even before becoming their Customer. Kind of scary..isn’t it?

    Very weird experience in applying for the amazon pay ICICI card. I applied on June 23rd and the agent called for document collection on a weekday almost two weeks after application. Since I wasn’t at home and he refused to come after 6pm, the collection was postponed to a weekend. On July 13th, the documents were collected, including ITR and salary slips. They did a CIBIL enquiry on 15th July and on 17th July, I got an SMS that my credit card is declined despite a CIBIL score >800 and I can apply again after 1 month. When I checked status with the amazon site, it still showed processing. Customer care also said the application is under process. I lost hope and thought it was because of no banking relationship with ICICI Bank. Then one fine day in August, they call for verification and when I ask about the declined message, they say they are not aware and are only performing verification. On August 6th, I get a message that my credit card is generated and I have got a limit of 5lakh, the highest among all my other credit cards. Now, waiting for the card to be dispatched.

      Hi Shashank,

      Almost same things happened with me as well. The documents were collected almost 20 days after the application date and there are two inquires by ICICI Bank in my CIBIL. After that, I got the same declined message. The status page is still showing in the process from almost a month now. I have already lost the hope of getting ICICI Amazon Pay Card.

        Don’t lose hope. For all you know, it may be a case similar to mine and you may get the card one fine day. Is it showing as still processing on the amazon site?

          Hi Shashank,

          I don’t think there is any chance of approval now as it has already been more than 2 months since I applied for the card.
          Strangely, it is still showing as Application Under Process on the status tracking page.

      You have to pay bill within 15-20 days of Bill generation. Due date is 15/18/20 days after billing date (Different for different Banks). Wait for first Bill, you will understand everything. Everything will be mentioned on your Bill.

    Documents Verification seems to be done by Third Party Agency Person as they say On Behalf of icici Bank and not actual icici bank employee.
    So it’s matter of documents integrity and it’s misuse.
    Also is it required to submit any hard copy of documents???
    I think they capture our Fotos, and documents snaps in their app and submit online.

    Plz confirm and Clarify Above.

    This is a superb entry level card.
    Here is what I do to get maximum benefit.
    I’m actually getting 5% for Amazon Pay load using this card. Not sure if you have noticed you are not supposed to get any for wallet load.
    Then pay for your utility bills using this balance, on Swiggy, Dunzo etc.
    I’ve got around 500 as pay balance in 2 months of use.
    Uff not to mention I did receive Rs 750 Amazon pay balance on Approval.

      I think the Cashback for loading money to Amazon pay balance is 2% using this card. There are further promotions from time to time for using Amazon pay balance. So, these days the cashback percentage easily crosses 7 if you are careful in using your payment method. If you setup auto reload of Rs 1000 or more for Amazon pay balance , you get further 2% cashback ( cappped to Rs 2400 in a year).

      The beauty of this card is with the Amazon Pantry offers. Generally from 4th to 7th of the month Amazon Pantry shopping of more than Rs 1500 has a 15% instant discount for ICICI bank credit cards. If you use this card , it will give 5% cashback after the monthly statement also. If you landed on the page from ICICI bank flat 4% cashback link this will end up being a 24% cashback. Amazon Pay ICICI CC is the most transparent and easiest in cashbacks. Further you don’t have to have great skills in maximising redemptions . Simple and efficient are two words to describe this card.
      Other cards competing on Amazon are not so simple. For SBI card , you have to land on Amazon through YONO to get 5% cashback. HDFC cards have to land through smart buy for the rewards/cashback. Both take a lot of time in realisation of rewards and cashbacks. Rewards are like coupons which everyone is not able to cash in. Rewards result in redemptions where you end up spending more money even if you really did not require the expenditure to be done. Simple cashbacks are better for people who want to save money. In my opinion this is a great card.

    Hi,

    Few days back, I have received this card. I wanted to go for an ICICI card, for getting 10% off on Flipkart BBD, and other such offers on ICICI cards. I tried using this card on Tatacliq where ICICI card offer is running. The offer is not valid on this Card 🙁

    Can anyone confirm if we get those discount offers on other such websites? Does Amazon Pay card get recognised the same as other ICICI Bank credit cards? I already have Regalia, so without normal ICICI card discounts, this card is not of much value as I get better rewards with Regalia on Amazon.

    Those who are holding this card do check and confirm if you’re getting 5% on eligible transactions or not. I found out few days back that for few transactions on amazon I was only getting 1% instead of the promised 5%. When highlighted to CC the response was that it was a system/IT issue and that it will be resolved soon.

      I verified this in my first statment, thanks to Cred for categorizing my spends and I found the cashback to be nearly equal to the calculated value(but not exact). I had initially got less cb(saw in icici netbanking) but they added additional cb before crediting to my amazon pay balance.

    So the documents verification was done for me. The guy just took photos of my documents in an app, and asked me to sign a terms and condition acknowledgement form. So that’s it? Just one sign is enough? And just photos? I haven’t applied to credit cards in a long time, but earlier they used to have a huge application form.
