Different credit cards offer different ways to redeem credit points depending upon the co-branding. For example, you may book rail tickets by redeeming the points earned on IRCTC co-branded card or book a flight ticket by using reward points accumulated on a credit card that is issued by a bank on co-branding with an airline.
Similarly, there are some cards that are issued after co-branding with fuel retailers and offer fuel against the reward points. Citi Bank has issued such a card after co-branding with Indian Oil. Using this card, according to the bank, a customer may earn up to 71 litres of free fuel in a year.
According to the features of the card, you would get 4 Turbo Points on Rs 150 spent on fuel at authorised Indian Oil outlets and each Turbo Points may be used to get free fuel worth Re 1 (i.e. 1 Turbo Point = Re 1 Free Fuel). Moreover, you would get complete waiver of 1 per cent fuel surcharge at authorised Indian Oil outlets.
Apart from spending on fuel, you would get 2 Turbo Points on Rs 150 spent at grocery stores and supermarkets.
Moreover, there will be zero annual fee if you spend Rs 30,000 or more in a membership year, else Rs 1,000 will be charged as annual fee.
