  • No welcome bonus: The SIB-OneCard does not offer any welcome bonus, which is a common feature of many other credit cards.

Account Opening and Procedure
SIB-OneCard Credit Card

The SIB-OneCard Credit Card offers a promising combination of a lifetime-free metal card, instant virtual card, digital experience, and reward points on all spends. However, its limited availability, lower reward rate, high interest rate, and lack of extensive partner offers are drawbacks to consider. If you're a pre-approved South Indian Bank customer looking for a basic, no-frills card with the convenience of a metal card and digital features, it's worth exploring. However, for wider acceptance, faster rewards accumulation, or established benefits, comparing with other options might be advisable.
