After the big launch of Paytm First Ever credit card with Citibank, Ola has launched Ola money SBI credit card in partnership with SBI & Visa.
Just like Paytm and Amazon, Ola credit card is a beginner credit card with a purpose to reach out masses.
Ola Money SBI credit card is a multipurpose credit card if you analyze the features. You would get extra benefits on flight booking, hotel booking, fuel surcharge waiver along with Ola rides benefit.
I will update my list of best credit cards in India 2020 if Ola credit card would deserve to be in the list.
Ola Money SBI Credit Card Fee
Joining Fee – 0
Annual Fee – Rs 499 second year onwards
The annual fee will be waived off on spending Rs 1 lakh in a year.
Ola Money SBI Credit Card Benefits
#1. Ola Rides
You will get 7% casback on your Ola rides with the Ola money SBI card. You can get a maximum cashback of Rs 500 per month.
I feel, there shouldn’t be any limit on Ola spend as this is a co-branded credit card with Ola.
#2. Flight Booking
You would get 5% cashback on flight booking on ClearTrip. The maximum cashback cap is Rs 5000 for domestic and 10,000 for international flight booking.
Note: I will update once I confirm whether the cap is per transaction, per month or per year.

#3. Hotel Booking
Ola money card offers 20% cashback on all domestic hotel booking and 6% on all international hotel booking via cleartrip. There is no maximum cashback limit which I was expecting on Ola rides.
20% cashback at 6000 restaurants via Dineout. You can only get up to Rs 200 cashback per transaction per month. This offer is added just to increase the benefits list. If you calculate, you would know, the benefit is only applicable up to Rs 1000 spend (20% = Rs 200) per month on dining.
#5. Other Spend
You would get 1% cashback on all other spends without any maximum cap. 1% cashback is a decent saving if we calculate other beginner credit cards
#6. Fuel Benefit
You will also get 1% fuel surcharge waiver with Ola Money SBI credit card. I have prepared also a list of best fuel credit card in India.
You would get the cashback as Ola money credit, in your Ola money wallet within 3 days of the transaction. You can use Ola money against Ola rides.
The cashback comes with lifetime validity.
What I like about Ola Money SBI credit card

- Easy apply process
- 1% cashback on all spends

What We Didn’t Like
- Rs 500 cap on Ola ride cashback
- You cannot combine other promos while hotel booking
