Well, I am getting calls from an ICICI executive she asked if I need to open any savings account or something.I asked her if she can help me get a CC, she said I need to open an account first, with the deposit of 12k and I have maintain 10k as minimum balance.Then I can apply for the CC, she conferenced my call to some CC guy and he took some details, am not sure whether to trust them or not :question:

lol. there was a time when you could get a credit card without opening a bank account. today, everyone wants you to open an account just to be on the safer side. of course, this does not apply to people with salaried accounts. in any case, there is no reason to trust ICICI Bank considering you already know that they do not like giving credit cards to people below 25 years of age.

Well, I heard that from an SBI agent once, not sure though as even the manager at OBC didn't find any issues with it :confused:
