SBI credit card facility is good especially ELITE. The customer service is very excellent on credit card department. But the rate of interest is very higher for EMI conversion when compared with Kotak Mahindra. I am using the card for since 2.5 years. They are giving reward points, EMI conversion is applicable and this card is really superb.
In SBI, their billing system is not proper. When i pay the bill amount on due date, again they asked me to pay some amount. Their language is in unmannered approach and there is no courtesy in talking with a customer. Anyhow, I'm planning to end up a relationship with SBI Gold card. My limit is Rs. 60000 and they send a bill of Rs. 82000 and they are not specific and the bill is not in a descriptive format which customer unable to understand.
I have done the transactions because of forcible merchants and they have overcharged of 9K. I have approached them for refund and the formalities are very long. I have been using IRCTC card and never experienced the benefits. I have blocked the card for time being and am not planning to use it any more but still they are charging me. The charges are on higher side also fraudulent transactions are happening.
