Amazon Pay ICICI Bank Credit Card is a co-branded shopping credit card recently launched by ICICI Bank in partnership with Amazon India on the Visa payment platform. Just after its launch, it became one of the country’s favourite credit cards for online shoppers. Currently, it is considered one of the best credit cards out there for shopping in India, especially for Amazon shoppers and its Prime members. Initially, it was an invite-only offering, but now it is open to all. What makes the Amazon ICICI Credit Card popular is that it rewards you with cashback in the form of Amazon Pay balance. This credit card is even more rewarding for Amazon Prime members, as you can get as much as 5% cash back on purchases on Amazon, which, as you are probably aware, is the largest e-commerce website with nearly 17 crore products. Apart from Amazon Pay cashback, this card also offers several other benefits, like a 15% discount on dining bills at all restaurants participating in ICICI Bank’s Culinary Treats program.
