Get Discounts on Gold this Akshaya Tritiya with ICICI

ICICI Bank Credit Cards has come up with good discounts when you purchase gold coins. If you use your ICICI Bank Credit Card to make a purchase at any of the ICICI Bank outlets during this Akshaya Tritiya, you will be getting good discounts of from Rs. 150 to Rs. 2500.

To avail this offer all you need to do is to visit the nearest ICICI Bank branch, and buy their exclusive gold coins which they are actually selling through their branches. These gold coins are of 99.99% pure as claimed by them. They also come in different weights, starting from 2.5 g to 50 g.

Gold as an investment is really good idea considering the rise in price of gold every day. Buying gold in the form of jewellery is absolutely cannot be said as an investment option considering that the jewelers charge many hidden charges like making charges and wastage, etc on the jewellery you are buying. It is considered to be unworthy investment when you buy gold in the form of jewellery. Instead buying gold in the form of coins or bullions which is around 24 carat or 99.99% pure is the best way to buy gold for the purpose of investment.

It has become a trend for the banks to sell gold coins too and ICICI Bank is one of the pioneer in it and I guess is the market leader in selling gold coins through banks in India.

Akshaya Tritiya, as many might be knowing, especially those in South India, on what it is. For those who don’t know, it is nothing but an auspicious day for Hindus which falls in the month of May every year. It is considered to be a very lucky and auspicious day. In the recent years, there has been a misbelief, should I say correctly that if someone buys gold in any form in this day their wealth will be multiplied in the near future.

I guess this belief has been well utilized by many jewelers across who makes crores of rupees on this single day through gold sales only. I feel that whether those who are buying these gold coins are becoming rich or not but these jewelers are actually becoming really rich with their marketing gimmick and using up the people’s belief to profit from it.

Anyway, coming back to this offer, if you are planning to buy gold this Akshaya Tritiya, you can actually buy it through ICICI Bank credit cards and get discounts.

If you are buying 2.5 g gold coin you will get a discount of Rs. 150. If you buy 5 g gold coin you will get a discount of Rs. 275. Similarly for 8 g you will get a discount of Rs. 450 and for 20 g you will be getting Rs. 1000 as discount. Finally, for 50 g pure gold from ICICI you will be getting a maximum discount of Rs. 2500.
