SBI Card today rolled out an online specific credit card — SimplyCLICK — in association with seven partners including Amazon India, BookMyShow and Cleartrip. "We wanted to launch a card with special benefit meant for online purchases. In this card, whatever the spending be, we will offer a five times more reward than in case of normal cards," Vijay Jasuja, CEO SBI Card told reporters after the launch of the new product.
Other online partners for the initiative are Ola Cabs, LensKart, Food Panda and Fab Furnish. "And for the seven online partners, spending on those platform will attract ten times more reward. So the consumers will get 15 times more reward (points)," he said.
SBI Card said the company is focusing on online shopping across diverse categories as the e-commerce sector in India is growing at an exceptional pace. "With this new product, SBI Card is poised to leverage the popularity of online shopping and e-commerce in India," it said. Also, the Card will reward loyal customers by offering them with up to Rs 4,000 worth of vouchers if they spend Rs 2 lakh via online medium annually.
