Title: Extra discount of 10-15% if bought through a certain banks debit/ credit card.


Assalamu alaikum. I'm from India. Here when we buy any product online the vendor give us an extra discount of 10-15% if bought through a certain banks debit/ credit card. Is this kind of purchase permissible? Vassalam 


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The discount offered by the vendor is permissible.[1]


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
