Review of IndusInd Legend Credit Card
What Makes It Special?
IndusInd Legend Credit Card is for someone who's the first one to adopt new technology and loves customization. I am referring to the contactless feature of the card & the fancy look fancy with your name and bank logo embossed on the card. (Sidebar: I am not really a fan of their card's design. I genuinely feel that they could have done a little more with the design considering they have so much real estate after knocking off the numbers & validity dates.)
I was under the impression that it for the people who travel overseas often considering the one of the lowest foreign markup fee (still the lowest is Yes First Exclusive Credit Card). But, this card comes with only standard international priority-pass lounge access i.e. you can visit a lounge twice a quarter & a fee of USD 27 is applicable. If you would like that to be waived off then you need to sign up for travel plus program & that comes with an additional cost of Rs. 5000. After signing up, I have come to a conclusion that this card is a lifestyle card & offers pretty good sign-up deals (vouchers worth Rs. 50,000), 3 free air-tickets, 3 free movie tickets per month & free golf lessons cum games but lacks in rewards system. But all this & 'zilch' renewal fee. Pro tip: IndusInd Exclusive Signature Debit card comes with 0% markup fee but it's a debit card.
