IDFC FIRST Bank, as we know, is new to the credit card business. All IDFC credit cards are already lifetime free and now the bank has come up with these lucrative cashback offers for its customers. The timing of the offers, particularly the EMI offer, is very appropriate since the demand for EMI conversions increases at this time of the year as many cardholders make big-ticket purchases around Diwali. Recently, SBI Card also launched a 10% cashback offer on select categories of online transactions, while American Express had already been offering complimentary Taj and Amazon gift vouchers to its cardmembers under a limited period Diwali offer. More such offers are expected from other card issuers as well in the next couple of weeks.
