Condition for SBI Maruti Card is that if spend on card is greater than Rs. 2,000 within the first 60 days of card issuance, then joining fee is waived. Before opting for any card, make sure you are aware of following important fees charged by the banks, although there are many other charges:
  • Annual fees: There are many cards with zero annual fees but after completion of 1st year annual fee is applied and many card owners are not aware of this. So select a card, which does not put hole in your pocket and carries low or no annual fee.
  • ATM Cash Withdrawal: One of the biggest differences between debit card and credit card is that on debit card there is no charge on cash withdrawal from the ATM provided number of withdrawals are within the limit. However every cash withdrawal from ATM using credit card carries charge depending on the amount.
  • Late Payment: This can be either a fixed charge or small percentage of the amount withdrawn.
