Be a smart SBI Card user and make the best of your card
Credit cards come with legal contracts. Hence, it is important that you are aware of their terms and conditions, when you sign up for them.
Explore features and learn about T&Cs: Please read your credit card application carefully to know about your card’s features and associated Terms and Conditions. The information mentioned in small prints may have big impacts on your fee, charges and usage conditions. While some T&Cs are similar on all cards, there are many others that may be particular to the ones you are applying for, so we recommend that you go through all of them.
Understand liabilities: If your card has multiple users, know about the liabilities shared by secondary users. Also, if you have applied for Add-on cards, understand the added responsibilities that come with them such as who will manage the cards, pay bills and debts, etc.Read more
Know how to cancel your Credit Card: Knowing how to cancel your card is as important as knowing how to use it. When you decide to close a Credit Card, make sure all payments have been made and there are no pending dues. Avoid closing cards that still have outstanding balance to be cleared or those that make a significant amount of your credit history. Cancelling such cards impact your credit score.
Learn about cash advances: Credit Cards give you the freedom of taking cash advances. But avail this service only at the time of emergency because cash advances are levied with charges, which you start paying from the day you have taken the advance. There is no grace period on cash advances from a credit card.
Exploring lower rate of interest options for payments: In case of unexpected expenses, it is better to talk to your credit card company and explore different options that you can take advantage of, such as availing low interest credit options. This way you can save on the amount you repay.
Credit cards give you a lot of power and if you follow some crucial mantras about their usage, you can harness them well.
