For Amazon Flipkart offers all above is similar. For remaining cases, since you’ve a car, you should choose Octane card, since it’s fuel card.

Elite for 11 months provided you are given with higher limit, later downgrade to Simplyclick. Reason for not suggesting Octane is because you are into IOCL not BPCL.

downgrade to simplyclick will get same limit as Elite?
if I downgrade within 11 month, I don’t have to pay annual fee 4999 of elite?

basically take card that gets maximum limit first time, then downgrade?

Yes. While downgrading you have to ask them to transfer the existing CC limit to the new one. You have to pay joining fee of 4999+gst against which you will get some vouchers but from next year onwards no such vouchers for paying annual fee so..

If you decide to go with Elite make sure you suck out most of it, movie travel and memberships. Otherwise go with Octane.

It’s user specific through BB. They provide FYF SBI cards to some users.

ok

i will ask them which of 3 cards will get me highest limit and take that card.

they told I will get higher limit on octane than simplyclick.

I am fine if i get 10% discount offers on sbi cards -  octane card which flipkart or amazon runs occassionally 

either simplyclick (499 annual fee) or octane (1499) will do as they will give annual fee waiver for octane 

if they will give higher limit for elite than octane, I will take elite or go with octane.

I assume the sbi credit card app will show me upgrade offer to elite and can upgrade if I ever need it.

Thing is as per SBI these 3 card fall under different segments.
Entry level, Premium and Super premium. These factors determine the max highest limit assigned to these cards.
One more thing, SBI rarely gives the limit which they assure you while applying, so do make sure of that too. My cousin was assured of 2L limit while applying for Prime CC but was given 80K 😅

Nowadays, SBI is giving free Amazon vouchers with pre-approved cards, so don’t miss out on them.

For simply save, it’s 1k; for Elite, it’s 2.5k. I don’t know about Octane & Click. Probably 1k as their annual fees are the same. But these offers are on pre-approved cards only and user-specific I guess. Just check prior to applying for the card.

If you’re eligible, you’ll get pre-approved card offers through sms notifications. I don’t know about the eligibility criteria.
