Sbi includes the charges in your statement. They do this little dance of debiting and crediting back. But finally it will be in your statement.

Unless the waive it for you per your request. But I don't think they will for redemption.

How did you get your points redeemed for statement credit? Calling cc? Or email?

ah i see:) guess during statement generation i will know it for sure then:) it will be on 13th of this month will update how it went:)

redeemed by calling customer care:) its the only way i heard from customer care, but i think via email also we can do, but i did it with phone customer care only

Adyar Ananda bhavan is pretty pricey. Right?

Never had anything there that justified the price.

kinda pricy for sure, but sweets are good (except too oily) and hotel is alright nothing to complain except price though:) too pricy for sure

since spending in this hotel kinda regularly need good reward card:) hoping to get SBI pulse soon:) but not sure SBI is willing to offer me this card... have to wait another 3months to get it

And i got sad hearing that SBI only allows 3 cards max sad so low limit on number of cards we can have

need some way to get more than 3 cards in SBI (I have lots of cards i need from SBI one by one xD)

Why you gone for statement credit in simple save

You could have gone prime vouchers of 250rs. Each by reselling here on dd

You could have easily extracted around 1100-1200 for 4000 points without any redemption charges
