The SBI Card allows credit card users to convert large purchases into monthly EMI. The tenure options for EMI begin at 6-month and end at 24-month, according to information available on SBI Card’s official website (sbicard.com). And even there are 9-month and 12-month tenure options too. The monthly EMI for a 24-month tenor will be Rs 51.90 per Rs 1000 purchase, while the monthly EMI for a 6-month and 12-month tenor will be Rs 177.5 and Rs 93.5, respectively. The offer is announced via Twitter by SBI Card stating that “Large payments shouldn’t get in the way of making memories. Flexipay simplifies your large payments into easy installments so that you can make the memories of a lifetime!”
SBI account holders can convert their purchases into Flexipay within 30 days of the purchase, according to the SBI card’s statements. Any transaction worth more than Rs 500 can also be converted to Flexipay, according to the report. The minimum booking amount, on the other hand, remains unchanged at Rs 2500.
