Zomato and RBL Bank have announced that they will now be offering two co-branded credit cards to customers, called the ‘Edition Cards’. This indeed is great news for foodies who will now be able to earn Zomato credits every time they use these credit cards to make purchases or pay bills, online and offline. There are two variants of the Zomato and RBL Bank co-branded credit cards—Edition Classic and Edition.
The higher spec Edition credit card offers complimentary Lounge Access at all major domestic airports in India as well as the global Zomato Gold membership which is renewed every year the card remains active with you. For every time you make a transaction on the Zomato app or at restaurants, you get 10% cashback in the Zomato app—this is called the Edition cash.
