I was using my SBI Prime card to pay for rent using Redgiraffe and getting about 5% cashback each month as points.
Today, I got this SMS from bank:
“Dear SBI Credit Cardholder, w.e.f 25 Jul’19, Red Giraffe will no longer be a part of the list of Billers available on Easy Bill Pay. We will be unable to process your Standing Instruction payment for Red Giraffe & request you to pay the biller directly. We regret the inconvenience caused.”

Is there another way to pay and still get the rewards?
Any other dimers in the same boat?

Red Giraffe charges are 0.39% of Rent Amount + gst. It will comes out to Approx. Rs.45-50 per Rs.10000.

RedGiraffe is only used for registration of the Bill, you do not have to pay the bill through their site. You can use any wallet or bank’s Bill payment facility that accepts RedGiraffe as a biller.

  I use PayZapp for payment and use code BILLPAY which gives Rs.250 (max) cashback and is more than fees charged by RedGiraffe. Rewards points earned on the credit card are Bonus and can help achieve targeted spends.
