YES Bank Select Credit Card – Should You Get it?

The welcome voucher and spend-based fee reversal wok quite in favour of the card and when you add rewards and benefits such as lounge access, golf program and dining offers, the YES Bank Select credit card becomes worth considering. Although the reward rate is quite low – 0.25-1%, other benefits make up for it, especially if you meet the spend-based fee waiver. If you are someone looking for cashbacks and better reward rate, then you should look at other options. Otherwise, YES Select is a a fine offering. Not extraordinary, just fine.
