Is Air India Signature Card worth using?

Is it worth buying this card? 30 miles for 100 INR seems attractive! But redeeming is not straight forward as Citi PM card

30 points for 100 is only if you buy in Air India portal and ONLY for the cardholder ticket, which means for your family the 30 points wont apply (unless they changed this policy recently)

I have had this for 2 years and considering closing the account. Annual fee of 5K for not too many perks. Rather spend that 5K on the Jet Sapphiro ICICI card where you get points and a free base fare waiver

i use this card quite a lot & the bonus points on reaching certain thresholds makes this card very worthwhile....if you are going to use the card on ai to buy tickets for yourself then i would definitely recommend getting this card....

Depends on your usage. Are you tied to AI for flights AND do you buy your own ticket most / all of the time? If yes... then maybe. If no to those conditions It might not be the best card for you.

A few years ago it used to be a fantastic card that gave you *G status on spends. Today, 3-4 devaluations later its a very poor card unless you get those spend accelerators.
