KIWI, a platform launched by Siddharth Mehta, Mohit Bedi, and Anup Agrawal, who are known for their work with freecharge, LazyPay, and PayU, has introduced a lifetime free credit card. It will give you 1% flat cashback when you make a UPI payment through it. Here’s everything you need to know about.
What is KIWI Card?
It is a virtual Rupay credit card, powered by Axis Bank, that will give you a flat 1% cashback on every UPI payment. As you know, now you can make UPI transactions using a Rupay credit card. As stated on the Kiwi website, it will be lifetime free and the cashback will be directly deposited to users’ bank account.
According to the information provided on the company’s website, users on the waitlist will receive a fixed 2% cashback. However, it is unclear whether this cashback percentage is a permanent offer or temporary, as the terms and conditions have not been disclosed.

It is a well-known fact that during a platform’s initial stage, they tend to offer attractive and enticing deals. However, once they become established and well-known, these offers may become less generous. This pattern has been observed with platforms like Paytm, Cred, and others. Thus, joining a platform during its initial stage can provide a range of benefits that come with being part of its launch.
