Gift from SBI credit card

A couple of day ago i got an email from SBI Credit card stating  “Congrats! Your e-code for FREE JBL T-250 SI Headphone is inside“.

SBI reward

The email contained a code to be used on http://sbi.giftease.com/ ( SBI credit card’s reward voucher micro site) and an explanation of the reward including MRP of the prize :p.

The email reads :

We are delighted to inform that you have qualified for a FREE* JBL T-250 SI headphoneworth INR 2,499 for spending more than INR 30,000 between 11 Jun & 05 Jul 2016.

The Term Free

We all know nothing comes for free, But this is a fair deal SBI wants you to pay INR 10 as shipping fee and nothing else, which is not a bad.

Value of Reward

I can say this is a good reward, in term of usability of the gift, the additional charges, the terms & condition and most important it’s solid product instead of e-gift vouchers or credits which comes with a ton of Terms and conditions.

I did a small search  JBL T-250 on a couple of e-commerce website and found its being sold for INR 849 on Amazon, Flipkart and INR 983 on snapdeal at the time I made this post which makes it a good one for INR 10.

I have no idea how SBI selected candidates for the gift whether its for every customer who crossed  INR 30,000 mark or not, so let me know if you have received any similar gift from SBI Credit card.

Note : I have redeemed the code and the order is under processing, the order conformation email states the product will be delivered by 3rd September 2016, will update once I received the product.
