Why SBI cards are your best bet for Big Billion Days

If you hold a State Bank debit or credit card, you can avail an instant discount of 10% while shopping during The Big Billion Days. This offer is the best of its kind, and beats every other online shopping offer available during this period.

Here’s what you need to know.

Is this an instant discount or cashback?

When you shop with your State Bank Debit or Credit card, you get an instant discount (not a cashback) of 10%. What’s the difference? Allow us to explain.

For example, if you purchase a product for INR 10,000 with your State Bank debit or credit card, you get a discount of INR 1,000 immediately and you pay only INR 9,000 at the time of checkout. However, in case of cashback offers, you must make the full payment during checkout and the cashback of INR 1,000 is credited to you within the next 90 days.

Clearly, this is a great deal that Flipkart is offering on State Bank debit and credit cards during The Big Billion Days.

Is there any maximum limit on the instant discount?

This offer allows you to save up to INR 5,250 during the Big Billion Days. Yes, that’s right! While the online shopping market offers cashbacks with small upper limits, Flipkart brings to you an unbeatable discount of up to INR 5,250 on State Bank cards, spread across the 5 days of the festive season. And don’t forget, that this offer will be applicable in addition to the other great offers that are applicable on the products. Now this is what you call “the cherry on top”?

So have you applied for your State Bank card yet?


The Big Billion Days, India’s biggest sale, opens to customers in India between October 2 and 6, 2016. The sale will run across Flipkart’s desktop site, mobile app and mobile site.
