In our modern city life, it is almost impossible to tread a single step without taking the help of certain technological boons, and one such is credit card - a small rectangular piece of plastic, which has revolutionized the entire spectrum of monetary transactions throughout the globe. The credit card serves a lot of purposes, the basic one being to ease the burden of carrying hard cash everywhere, and to transact without cash. This concept of digital money has not only eased business and boosted global trade and commerce, but also has helped the end users, i.e. us. Just imagine the situation we faced even a decade back, standing at large queues at bank in order to withdraw a meagre amount of our hard earned money. And the process not only involved standing at queues, but involved quite a bit of complex paperwork as well, keeping aside the precious working hours wasted in this process.

The arrival of credit cards not only eased all of these mentioned problems, but it also opened a whole new world of opportunities in front of us. In this article we will discuss about that topic. As the rapid popularity of credit cards spread like wildfire throughout the globe, one after another key banking player introduced the system for their customers, which further boosted their prospects. In a very short span of the time credit cards became a global phenomenon.

American Express, an Introduction:

Coming to the Indian scenario, American Express gained the most out this situation as it captured the nascent market with all its strength and might. Even in face of growing competition from other banks, American Express has been able to maintain the edge till now, and whatever might be the place. Credit cards by ICICI are all time favorites for customers. This is because of their immense experience in creating and advertising credit cards in the financial market.

Classification of Credit Cards:

Credit cards are classified according to the added benefits they command apart from serving their prime purpose. We all know that platinum is the most expensive ornamental metal that we have at our disposal, dethroning gold and silver. Thus it is very easy and simple to deduce that a credit card belonging to the platinum range commands much more benefit than a gold or silver range. And not only has that, the platinum range credit cards also enhanced the social stature of the person owning it, increasing his social value. Apart from the classification in accordance to metals, the credit cards of the visa series are highly flexible and can be used anywhere in this world. For example a couple from Kolkata, on a vacation in Paris can use their visa credit card to buy stuffs from Paris, without even changing their money into local currency.


Apart from this ease, credit cards also bring a lot of hidden gifts, such as guaranteed discount on dining bills from selected restaurants; e-commerce sites regularly give discounts on purchases using a credit card. And in this ball game, the credit cards from American Express commands much more benefits, due to their tie-ups with a large number of restaurants, e-commerce sites and travel chains such as Makemytrip, Domino's, Pizza Hut and so on.

So to simplify things, it can be said that the American Express credit cards not only ease the burden of carrying hard cash with you, wherever you go, it also brings in a lot of added benefits in form of customer loyalty. If you are from a metro city like Kolkata, then to experience all the nuances of the ever glowing city life, you must have it .
