Paytm First is a membership program that offers extra benefits and rewards on the Paytm app. The membership we get with the Paytm SBI SELECT 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!

Final Thoughts

The Paytm SBI SELECT credit card does not offer great rewards or benefits for an annual fee of Rs 1499. The rewards are average if compared to other credit cards in the same segment. We get just 1% cashback on non Paytm spends. For these spends, we are better off using other cashback credit cards like Axis Ace, Flipkart Axis or SBI Cashback. All of these have a lesser annual fee too.

AU Bank Xcite Ace

There are other issues as well. We don’t have any spend based annual fee waiver on this card. So, there is no reason to spend on this card when we have low rewards and not even an annual fee waiver. So, we would not recommend getting the Paytm SBI SELECT credit card and look at other alternatives.

    This card is also available on RuPay.
    Both SBI Paytm Credit Card launched on RuPay variant.

  2. Mahesh S. Panicker

    What is even the point of this card. For a hefty fee, it really offers nothing. The card should at least have had continuous Paytm First membership, and provide rewards on Paytm wallet loads and do away with transaction charges for the same, and should have a waver at most at 100000. Even the lounge access is domestic only and is just the 1 per quarter. Pedestrian and utterly pointless, I must say!

      Post updated. The fee waiver is at Rs 2 Lakhs. But yes, difficult to spend that much with this reward rate.
