      I do use SBI cards. The annual fee for the card is around 500 rupees. SBI is giving more reward points also I could convert all those points into cash. The credit limit is pretty good. Moreover there are no penalty charges or hidden charges with SBI. I never seen a Bank likes this, which is deducting the amount unnecessarily.

    News About Credit Cards

    • Credit card usage hits record high in India

      The quantum of credit card-users in circulation in India has hit an all-time record, with an increasing proportion of the population using plastic money instead of hard cash.

      According to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), around 29.8 million credit cards have been issued. This figure is true as of March 31, 2017, and is a significant increase to the the previous high of 28 million cards, the figure achieved in March 2008.

      The increasing percentage of defaults during 2007-2008 caused a fall in credit card users in India. Post the 2008 economic slowdown, the number further fell to 17.65 million, the number in March 2012. However, since then, credit card usage has seen a rise, and not just in numbers. Values of transactions has shot up correspondingly. By the end of March 31, 2017, spending via credit card was found to be Rs33,619.6 crore which is a 275% jump over Rs.8,958 crore, the figure in March 2012, as per RBI data. This is an indicator that credit card holders are now more inclined to actually use them, something of a rarity in the past.

      Reasons for the growth are several – including an increased comfort-level Indian banks have in issuing credit cards to customers due to easily accessible credit scores from firms like CIBIL. Credit scores indicate the borrower's’ financial discipline and possibility of defaulting. Moreover, banks these days have limited issuing cards to their own customers, which keeps them better informed and secure.

      What’s helping the most is the e-commerce boom the country is experiencing. With more people shopping online today, usage of digital payments - including credit cards – is now more popular than ever. Add to that the various offers on credit cards which make them all the more lucrative – due to cash-backs and reward programs and credit cards are emerging as a preferred instrument of making payments online. With this boom in people becoming increasingly comfortable spending online, e-payments are estimated to grow by 10 times to $500 billion by 2020, according to a Google-BCG report.

    • Things to consider while using a credit card

      A credit card is an interesting tool that lets the owner handle and manage regular as well as sudden financial crisis. Currently, the credit cards offer more than the credit itself, factors such as rewards, cashback, discounts, etc. play a vital role in the rise of credit card usage. However, a credit card can become difficult if you are not using it in the right way. If you are a credit card owner, you need to make sure that you are making timely payments to avoid late payment fees and associated interest charges. It is also advisable not to exhaust all your credit as it will reflect poorly on your credit score. You can use any credit card to withdraw cash, however, it will attract cash advance fee and a higher interest rate that could affect your repayment capability. If your credit card offers rewards, you also need to ensure that you redeem the rewards before they expire. There are many more important aspects to safe usage of credit cards that you can follow to make the most out of your credit card.

    • Credit card trends in 2017

      Since demonetization, the Indian economy has found various ways to carry out cashless transactions. The government has introduced alternatives to cash through Unified Payments Interface (UPI), Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD), Aadhaar Enabled Payment System (AEPS), digital wallets and more. After demonetization, India has witnessed an increase in the number of people using their debit and credit cards for transactions. The banks provide many types of credit cards offering cashback and benefits that have enabled individuals to prefer their credit card over cash and other modes of payments. The rise in usage of credit cards has brought forwards many interesting opportunities for the banks and exciting offers for the credit card owners.
