Updates on Yes Bank credit cards

Minimum spending threshold: 10,000 or above within a calendar quarter.

Eligibility period: The expenditure in the previous calendar quarter will determine the access for the following quarter.

For example, to qualify for complimentary lounge access from April to June 2024, you should have spent at least 10,000 between December 21, 2023, and March 20, 2024.

This approach enables you to strategically plan your expenditures to retain lounge access privileges. Please note, that the number of complimentary lounge visits per quarter remains the same, provided the spending criteria are met.
