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.
