Paytm SBI credit card is the latest launch from Paytm in the co-branded credit cards market.

With UPI on RuPay, the RuPay variant of the Paytm SBI credit card will see some good interest on the Paytm app.

Paytm First Membership Benefits

Paytm First is a membership program that offers extra benefits and rewards on the Paytm app. The membership we get with the Paytm SBI credit card has different benefits from the regular Paytm First membership that we can purchase. Below are some of the good benefits that are missing. So, the welcome benefit on this card is as good as none!

  • 1000 cashback points each on 5 eligible UPI transactions in a month. Net benefit of Rs 50 per month or Rs 600 per year.

Pros and Cons

Other Key Benefits and Charges

  • Fuel Surcharge Waiver: 1% fuel surcharge waiver for fuel transactions between Rs 500 and Rs 3000. Maximum waiver of Rs 100 per statement cycle.
  • Forex Markup Charges: 3.50%+GST ~4.13%
  • Finance Charges: 3.5% per month or 42% annually

Final Thoughts

The Paytm SBI credit card is your basic entry-level credit card. With 1% to 3% cashback on spends, we are better off using other cashback credit cards like Axis Ace, Flipkart Axis or SBI Cashback. There are other issues as well. We don’t have any spend based annual fee waiver on this card. This is something that is essential for entry-level credit cards.

AU Bank Xcite Ace

But, with the launch of a RuPay variant this becomes another option for UPI payments. While it is not confirmed yet, the cashback rate for UPI payments will probably be 1%. So if you cannot get the Tata Neu Infinity credit card, the Paytm SBI credit card is another option. But again Tata Neu Infinity is Lifetime Free for some customers but the Paytm SBI credit card charges an annual fee.
