2 years back, i have taken the credit card from State Bank of India. My salary account is in SBI thats why i have chosen the same. Its a simply save credit card and they are charging Rs. 500 as an annual fee. If i purchase for Rs. 100 in departmental store will receive 4 rewards points and that points can be converted into cash.

Based on my eligibility, I get an offers from State bank of India thats the reason i opted for a credit card. I am using it on a regular basis but my credit card got blocked due to the wrong pin number details so that I have contacted the customer care service for so many times, they are not picking up the call. Even after connecting with them telling to call the authorized person. Even though i give all the right information, they are not considering since this card is in my wife name. The service is not satisfactory.
SBI credit card is been a very good product and the card was offered to me based on my eligibility. Its a Elite card hence they are providing good rewards points based on my transactions. They charged me Rs. 5000 as a annual fee and they gave back to me on the form of vouchers. Its easy to use the card other than any other nationalized bank cards.
The offers are okay so that i chosen the credit card from SBI and I'm expecting more offers like discounts, cashbacks and rewards points. Since i'm in out of station, i am unable to provide the document to the collection executive thats the reason the card got rejected.
I don't use SBI credit card much because they have provided me a very less limit of Rs. 10000 which is not sufficient for me. I am using this card for last 2 to 3 years. There is no annual fee which is a free card. I do not receive any offers on this card. Along with my salary account, i have received the card.
My salary account is in SBI hence i have taken the credit card from them. Till now i haven't used the card much. They are sending the offer messages through mails and SMS. They have offered me a credit limit of Rs. 1.06 lakhs and there is a annual fee of Rs. 600and it won't get waived off.
The rate of interest is very good for personal loan and home loan. I have SBI Simply Save card for last one year. This card works everywhere without any issue. If I shop to the maximum limit then annual fee will be waived off and also they don't charge annually for salary account holder.
