Answer

(Fatwa: 726/686=D/1429)

 

The free mileage on jet airways or free points on your card, if they are not interest of your deposited amount, but they are as prize on your credit card which you have got after depositing money, then you may utilize these benefits. But if there is doubt to get these things as interest of your deposited money, then you should avoid it.
