Reward points are awarded to the debit card/credit card holders when they do shopping on popular stores. These POS (point of scale) transactions reward points for every transaction which can be later redeemed in the form of Indian currency. To activate rewards scheme for a bank, you must register yourself on their rewards website. For example, SBI has SBI Rewardz website, UBI has UBI Rewards website.

Credit cards offer reward point system to allow the users to spend more using the card. By spending more they earn points. The points earned then can be redeemed by spending them at the partner merchants outlet. This way the ecosystem supports both credit card company and the sellers. Not all the time people benefit by spending using the credit card system. Reward points are basically the sales funnel for the sellers and the rewards for the consumers.

For example, Payback is one such reward point system which is being used by the ICICI banking system. This system collects points from the debit card and credit cards of ICICI bank. And then offers rewards the people based on the points earned.
