India-based payment solutions provider SBI Card in collaboration with Central, a fashion and lifestyle department store from Future Group, has rolled out a new co-branded credit card.
Designed for the urban shopper, the new Central SBI co-branded card provides a rewarding experience to consumers in the premium lifestyle and fashion space, combining benefits on shopping with dining and entertainment.
Available in two variants, SELECT and SELECT+, both cards featuring contactless technology offer a savings proposition to the loyal customers of Central. As soon as customers register for the card, they are provided with welcome gift vouchers worth up to INR,5000 ($73.6).
Through an accelerated rewards point structure, cardholders earn 20 reward points for every INR100 ($1.47) spent at Central stores.
Additionally, spending on dining and entertainment earn the cardholder 10 reward points per INR100 ($1.47) spent while purchases in all other categories earn the cardholder two reward points per INR100 ($1.47) spent.
Furthermore, on achieving certain milestone spends, customers can avail savings of up to INR4000 ($58.88) per year.
