Overview Nowadays all banks provide their customers with a debit-cum-ATM card. You can use this card not just to withdraw money from an ATM but also for purchasing goods or paying for a service. Some banks even offer special schemes to those who use the debit card frequently for shopping or availing of a service. SBI offers one such unique scheme, known as FreedomRewardz loyalty program. Under this program, if you use your State Bank Group Debit Card at a Point of Sales (POS) you are entitled to a certain number of FreedomPoints. You can then redeem these points for a range of goods & services as well as free gifts from the SBI redemption platform. Indian nationals residing outside India who hold a SBI debit card can also avail of the FreedomRewardz plan. In fact, you can earn points anywhere in India and overseas by making payments using your SBI debit card. Thus the SBI FreedomRewardz program for NRIs will be highly beneficial to Indian nationals staying abroad.

As you can see from the information provided in this article, there are huge benefits to activating your SBI FreedomRewards loyalty program. Make the most of it! I did wonder, though, why there is no mention of redeeming points to book train tickets.. After all, train travel for long distances is the preferred way to commute for lakhs of Indians.

I have not yet received the activation link against the activation request ID- Mis0101056568. Hence I am deprived of freedom points since 3 months though I purchased through gold debit card before 3 months. I spoke to your toll free number about 5-6 times, but there is no progress in this case. As per the mail received from you on 26.10.15, it was written that this case would be resolved within 15 days. Please expedite the case and send your feed back.
