      The best I prefer in the SBI Credit card is if one choose to go for the balance transfer option. The rate of interest is very much minimal and sometimes I pay without any interest rate being charged. This happens when are are offers. I also have EMI options.

      To start off, I would say my SBI credit card is a special card where if we waive the card, the card would get swiped instead of swiping the card in the EDC terminal. On my SBI credit card, I was offered a balance transfer option, depending up on my credentials, I get some offers and varies accordingly. I am holding this credit card of SBI for the past 2 months.
