Even I am getting it. But I feel its not worth paying so much high amount. The only good thing it has is international lounge access unlimited times. So if someone is traveling around the world too much then they can keep it.

Vouchers, BMS etc are good but does not justify that huge pricing.

Got a call today from ICICI. Rep is going to check if they can make the metal card LTF. But I will have to cancel the Emeralde AMEX variant as they are issuing either AMEX or MC. AMEX gives 5K Tata Cliq voucher every year. Not sure if it’s a good deal.
