Canara Bank Credit Card Review, Features & Reward Rate – There are very few Credit Cards which are offered by Public Sector Banks are popular in the market except SBI Cards. Recently I had applied for the Canara Bank Credit Card and It was approved and delivered within 14 days hassle free. After using the credit card for a week, I thought to share the experiences of Canara Bank Credit Card.

I had applied for the Canara Bank Rupay Select Credit Card as I wanted to go for a change from the existing variant of VISA and MasterCard. Though the offering on Rupay enabled Credit Card are not much, still I thought to have a one. The main attraction with Canara Bank Credit Card is lowest EMI and Processing Fees on outstanding bill conversion.

Bottomline – Canara Bank Credit Card Review

Though the Canara Bank Credit Card is not popular for higher offering and discounts but It’s is good in term of value. There are no charges like Joining, Renewal or annual fees on cards and best part is no hidden charges. In term of value, the Canara Bank Credit Cards are offering the cheapest Interest Rate on EMI conversion and lower processing fees. The reward rate of 0.50% is though lower but can be adjusted against the statement credit. The best part is free lounge access in life time free credit card. No LTF credit cards are offering free lounge access.

They are also having the separate Android and iOS based Mobile app for easy view, paying and converting the bills to EMI. I even didn’t find the separate mobile app for credit card with HDFC bank also.
