Credit Card reward points can be redeemed for different products and services. Here is how to go about it:

One huge advantage of Credit Cards is that most of them offer reward points for every transaction made. A Credit Card may offer 2 reward points for every Rs. 150 spent. Some Cards may also offer 2X, 5X or 10X reward points for certain transactions like shopping at partner sites and buying fuel or air tickets.

The rewards catalogue will list the products available, as well as the reward points needed for each of those.
