What is an Add-On Credit Card?

An Add-On Card is a privilege offered to the close family members of a primary credit cardholder. The add-on card comes with the same features of the primary credit cardholder, which can be availed by the closest family member.

Add-on Card

Usually, credit card issuers provide two to three cards for free, which means no joining fee or annual fee will be charged on the add-on cards. Some add-on cards do come with a fee ranging from Rs. 125 to Rs. 1,000 depending on the type of card. However, it is much lesser than the annual fee charged for the primary credit card.

The closest family members of the primary credit cardholder are eligible. However, the closest family member must be above the age of 18. Here is a list of those who can avail an add-on card.

  • Parents
  • Spouse
  • Siblings
