Yes Bank launches a credit card in partnership with Bank Bazaar that allows credit monitoring
YES Bank has launched a new “FinBooster” credit card in partnership with BankBazaar.com, which allows the monitoring of customers’ creditworthiness.

Credit score monitoring will be done through an intuitive subscription to the CreditStrong app (credit report), which is free for the cardholder for the first year.
“The most recent edition of the BankBazaar Aspiration Index found that while nearly 90 percent of people knew what a credit score was, less than 70 percent could accurately indicate the impact of their credit ratings. financial habits on their credit rating – that was the gap we saw among salaried professionals aged 22 to 45, ” said Mr. Adhil Shetty, CEO of BankBazaar.com.
If we consider the larger population that uses cards, the misconception around credit score is much higher. With the YES BANK-BankBazaar FinBooster card, we are trying to fill this gap by providing users with a card that also serves as a health and credit management advisor, ” added Mr. Shetty.
