Au Revoir my Jet Airways ICICI Rubyx Amex Credit Card


When on April 17th, 2019Jet Airways, often described as “too big to fail” and previously held a fleet of around 120 largely Boeing Co planes, was grounded after lenders refused it emergency funds; with it grounded the good JPMiles.


Tens of thousands of JPMiles were on stake. I was also worried about 73,000 JPMiles at my disposal. I struggled hard to accumulate these miles over the years and thought of redeeming them at once for a trip to Europe. Amsterdam was on my mind.

I panicked and looked out for any viable option wherein I can use them. Selected 12x Amazon Voucher worth 1000 INR each against 5751 JPMiles but the website threw errors during the redemption process. I kept trying for a couple days and finally, the order got placed when I selected 1x Voucher at a time. Placed 12 orders for 12 Voucher and that's how I burnt my painful 69,012 JPMiles. Sad story, huh?




Finally, after one and a half months; when I anticipated no hope on Jet's revival; I called ICICI Bank and placed the cancelation request for my Jet Airways ICICI Rubyx Credit Card.

ICICI's card retention team called me back citing cancelation reasons, and I reverted back stating that I can't make use of it anymore and paying an annual fee of Rs 2500 + GST doesn't seem worth it. The lady at the other end had no more questions to shoot. I was hoping she would offer me a different variant of the card or at least waive off the annual fee for the time being, but alas, she was absolutely cool letting go a potential user off their radar. Neither did I insist on anything.

And that's how a Good Relationship Ended.
