YES FIRST Preferred Credit Card - Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a good CIBIL score to apply for YES FIRST Preferred Credit Card?

Yes, all banks do a thorough credit check with CIBIL and other credit bureaus before approving Credit Card limits. It is advisable to apply for a CIBIL credit report online and check out your credit score before applying for the YES BANK First Preferred Credit Card. A score of more than 750 without any adverse payment remarks should be ideal.

How does YES BANK approve my Credit Card limit?

Deciding the limit and approving the same is the discretion of YES BANK. Various factors come into play. Your credit score, the number of Credit Cards you use, your income, and age are some of the primary aspects that decide your Credit Card limit.

Can I carry forward the Rewards Points to the next year?

It depends on the type of Rewards Points you accumulate. Some rewards points come with an expiry date, whereas some of them do not. Check out the expiry of your rewards points before redeeming them.

How does the payment cycle work with YES FIRST Preferred Credit Card?

Usually, you get an interest-free window ranging from 15 days to 50 days depending on the timing of the usage of your Credit Card. Every bill comes with a fixed statement date and the due date. The statement contains details of all purchases and payments made during the month preceding the statement date. The user has to pay the bill before the due date mentioned in the bill. Any purchases made after the statement date will appear in the next month's bill. Therefore, the timing of your purchase is crucial to decide the interest-free credit window.

Can I make a part-payment of my Credit Card bill?

Yes, the rules allow you to make the payment of any amount equal to or more than the 'Minimum Amount Due' on the Credit Card. Under such circumstances, you lose the benefit of the interest-free window until to clear the entire dues.

Do cash advances at ATMs come under the purview of the interest-free window?

No, cash advances attract interest from the day you use the facility. Apart from the interest, there is a cash advance fee, as well.

Will a part-payment affect my credit rating?

Making a part-payment ensures that the bank does not charge 'late payment' charges. It does not result in a default in payment. However, your credit utilisation ratio remains high that goes on to affect your credit rating.

What procedure should I follow if I misplace my YES FIRST Preferred Credit Card?

Contact YES BANK Customer care at 1800-103-6000 and inform them about the loss. Place a request to block your Credit Card to prevent any misuse. If you have availed the Card Protection Plan, you can take advantage of the benefits of the plan. Apply for a replacement Credit Card.
