Of all the credit cards, Platinum Credit Cards have the highest reward programs and spending limits. Often considered status symbol, Platinum cards offer freedom and personalized banking that no other card does.

Most banks that offer credit cards make sure to include Platinum card in the lineup. Corporations, particularly senior management, often use Platinum cards for the benefits they provide. It is often difficult to choose the best one from the options available, so we have compiled a list of Platinum cards provided by various banks in Pakistan and list down their rewards.

Note: The details have been taken from websites of the banks. Some facilities are equally provided by all banks to Platinum card holders such as high credit limits, personalized banking and VIP customer service. It’s the other facilities such as reward points and discounts that make the difference. In this blog we are covering these rewards so that readers can compare the cards and make a more informed choice.

Conclusion

The platinum credit cards of all banks provide massive benefits but HBL’s Platinum Credit Card makes a stronger presence than most. The sheer number of rewards & benefits overshadow others, particularly 5x points for foreign transactions and reward point on every Rs. 25 shopping.

MCB seems to be close second, with some great discounts and priority pass. Some banks, such as Silk Bank and Allied, do not have dedicated information pages for the Platinum cards and thus we were unable to find details of their offerings.

While the rewards sound great, the real benefit of Platinum Cards is the personalized banking and access to lounges on airports. For frequent travelers these are like heaven and the better the options for redeemable points, the more beneficial Platinum card gets.

The choice of Platinum Credit Card should be based on multiple factors, keeping one’s lifestyle in mind, and the benefits of the card will enhance the shopping experience.
