SBI Simply Save Credit Card Cons

The interest rate is 3.35% which is not high but the card holders will have to pay for using the services. Which sucks. And accumulating reward points can become a little difficult to keep track of and sometimes customers tend to forget it. Not sure about you but I do. But if I was so keen on savings alone and wanted to add points to it, then this is a credit card I would try.

    Hi Karthik,

    Does 10x reward points for Groceries, movies, dining & dept stores apply to both online and in-store/POS purchases?
    For e.g. whether I purchase groceries on or from a supermarket, I get 10x reward points?

    For online shipping on Amazon, Flipkart etc I recommend SBI Simply Click or Axis Bank cards, they have 5-10% discount on all purchases. Conditions apply.
    If you’r a regular on BookMyShow, simply get a IDFC debit card, they have Rs.250 cashback every month.
