    10. Cork exemption

    This benefit is for wine lovers. With it, you can take the bottle of wine free of the corkage fee for the first bottle.

    However, it is worth remembering that the corkage fee is an additional fee charged to customers by the restaurant, for bringing their own wine to be consumed at the establishment.

    It is not possible to request the Platinum Nubank card. It is only offered by the bank according to your consumption and income profile. According to the bank, it is recommended that a person have this card with a monthly income of at least R$6.
