    CP's Take

    IDFC FIRST Millennia Credit Card is a lifetime free card, and this compels a lot of card users (not all, mind you) to accommodate such cards in their wallets. The most customary criticism about credit card reward points is that they come with an expiration date. This card overcomes this disadvantage by crediting points that never expire. Even if you don’t redeem the points for a long time, you can get a tangible redemption benefit out of it. 

    As far as the rewards are concerned, being a zero joining & annual fee credit card, the default rewards rate for online and offline transactions is 1.5% and 0.75%, respectively. If you make an incremental spend above INR 20,000, the reward rate goes up to 2.5%, which is quite satisfactory. 

    It also houses 4 complimentary Railway Lounge Accessfuel surcharge waivers, and a discount on movie tickets, which we think is excellent.

    Without a second thought, this card is definitely one of the best entry-level credit cards.
