KOLKATA: Airtel Payments Bank today announced the launch of its new savings account – Rewards123 to give more value to customers when they transact digitally using the bank account.

Customers can easily open or upgrade to Rewards123 through the Airtel Thanks app using Video KYC. The process is simple and can be completed within few minutes on the app from anywhere in the country.

Customers can get Rewards123 at an annual fee of Rs 299 only and enjoy a wide range of benefits.

·Load money benefits– one per cent cashback when a customer loads Rs 1000 through UPI in their account. The customer will get a maximum of Rs 10 per month.

·Shopping Rewards- two per cent cashback on online shopping of Rs 1000 or more using the platinum debit card which comes with the account. The customer will get a maximum of Rs 40 per month.

Airtel Payments Bank MD & CEO Anubrata Biswas said, “Our research reflected that digitally ready, time sensitive consumers, seek consistent value during transactions, and are tired of surfing for the next best deal. With this insight, we developed Rewards123, a consistent value-driven proposition, which can be used safely as a separate account for digital transactions. This is India’s only bank account that offers regular rewards every month to customers on digital transactions. This innovation is an important addition to our neo-banking proposition of simple, secure, and value-driven solutions, and will further India’s mission of digital inclusion.”
