Credit Cards from State Bank of India (SBI) are often touted as the best, while some prefer Citibank credit cards.

SBI Platinum Card

If you are going to spend a lot of money, we suggest you buy the SBI Platinum Card. This is a card for people with a higher income. The annual fees are a whopping Rs 2999. Of course, through a lot of shopping, dining out and frequent travelling, you can add points and therefore, recover the annual charges.

This is also because your reward points are higher than say for example other ordinary credit cards. There is also a welcome gift that SBI gives on this credit card.

Of course, when applying you should check with the executive the various clauses that are applicable. Go for this card, only if your spends are higher in a month; say around Rs 30,000 to Rs 50,000 on a credit card.

 

SBI Signature Card


The SBI Signature Card is not very different from the SBI Platinum Card, as the table above shows. The benefits on spends is slightly better. The annual fees are an exorbitant Rs 4999 per year. What this means is that if you do not spend heavily and are not able to accumulate points and redeem and benefit from redemption, you should stand to lose.
