Until 2022, the cards of the national payment system "Mir" were not popular. They were more often issued by those who were entitled to some kind of payments from the state: benefits, pensions, salaries in state institutions and so on. It was impossible to receive budget money for other cards.

At the beginning of 2022, Visa and Mastercard stopped cooperating with Russia: cards issued within the country do not work abroad, and those issued abroad cannot be used in the Russian Federation. You can pay with the Mir card in Russia and some other countries: for example, in Belarus, Armenia, and Kazakhstan. For Android users, the payment system has its own application — Mir Pay. And banks don't really have much choice left. The new cards they are issuing now mostly work in the "World" system. UnionPay is also sometimes offered, but the conditions for such payment instruments are much less favorable.

We have collected the most attractive offers of Mir cards from major banks Ratings of banks / . The following criteria were used for the assessment:

  • Cost of service — the list contains cards with a free option (but sometimes there are nuances).
  • The reward system is whether there is cashback or bonuses and how convenient everything is arranged, whether there is a percentage on the account balance and what. At the same time, it is worth remembering that the Mir national payment system itself provides bonuses regardless of the bank.
  • The conditions under which you can withdraw money.

Please note: all figures are valid at the time of publication. Banks can change the terms, so check the details when making a card.

1. Tinkoff Black from Tinkoff

  • Service cost: free of charge if the balance on accounts, deposits, investments does not fall below 50 thousand during the month, or a loan has been issued to the account, or you have a 6.2 tariff (interest is accrued only on the balance over 100 thousand), or an account in foreign currency. If none of the conditions are met, then 99 rubles per month.

Please note that the card service is conditionally free. If you do not want to keep track of the balance or expenses, after registration, ask to transfer yourself to the 6.2 tariff. There is no dramatic difference between it and the usual tariff. It's just that the interest on the balance will be accrued only in the amount of 100 to 300 thousand rubles.
