The joining bonus comes in different forms like a welcome gift, shopping vouchers from select brands and additional reward points etc.

2. Reward Points

Before selecting a credit card it is advised that you analyze your spending pattern and choose a card which fits well with your spending pattern. 

Selecting a credit card which does not match your spending pattern will be of no use to you. 

This is because you won't be able to redeem reward points due to an opposite spending pattern.

6. Interest-Free Period

A credit card billing cycle is followed by a grace period which is referred to an interest-free period.

Hence, credit card comes with a line of credit which you can access without any interest charges for 48-50 days.
