Purpose

FreedomPoints

Earning. FreedomPoints can be accrued by making payments using your State Bank Group Debit Card at points of sale for purchases. Points can be earned for purchases made at partner stores also. If at our partner stores you use your State Bank Group Debit Card to pay for your purchase(s), you can earn additional FreedomPoints. Effective from 1st November 2012 you will earn 1 point for every multiple of Rs.200 that you spend using your State Bank Group debit card. Suppose you spend Rs.500 using your SBG debit card then you earn 2 points. FreedomPoints earned by you will be credited to your account in 7 working days.

Redemption. You need a minimum of 300 points to start redemption. Redemption can only be made on FreedomRewardz website or by calling the FreedomRewardz Service Center or at selected brand partner outlets.

Expiry. If not redeemed, FreedomPoints accrued on your card will expire after 36 months, excluding the month of accrual.

Pricing and Other Errors. If the number of FreedomPoints you redeem for a product or service is incorrect, regardless of an error in the number of FreedomPoints posted on the Site or otherwise communicated to you, or if you are able to redeem a product or service that was not supposed to have been released for redemption, then Company or our Partner will have the right to cancel that redemption and refund to you the FreedomPoints that you redeemed. This will apply regardless of a human/logical/transactional error.

Final Discount. Any discounts available to you as a member of the FreedomRewardz Program cannot be used in conjunction with other discounts or special prices available to you through other promotional schemes run by the store or other organizations. However, the points accrued through such purchases will be credited to your account, if such purchases meet all eligibility criteria for FreedomPoints accrual.
