Get 2X Rewards on Online Spends with Axis Premium Credit Cards

2X Reward Points on Axis Premium Credit Cards

Axis Bank has been in the news for all the good news lately and here’s one more to serve as a cherry on cake. Axis has rolled out a new promo where-in premium cards gets 2X rewards on Online spends.

The offer is similar to what they’ve done during Diwali 2020 with 3X rewards and here are all the details you need to know,

Offer Details

  • Offer: 2X rewards on ONLINE spends
  • Offer period: 1st Feb to 28th Feb 2022 (extended through March 2022)
  • Excluded spends: Wallet loads, Jewellery & Fuel spends
  • Max. Cap: Depends on the card, please find the details below
  • How to Enrol? Give a missed call on 8657956070 from your registered mobile no
  • Fulfilment: Within 90 days from end- date of the campaign
  • Offer Source
max cap

The offer is simple and straightforward, but the only only problem is that the t&c appears to be “targeted” offer as it says that the offer is eligible only for those who received the communication from bank, which I haven’t.

However, I reached out to Axis support and they’ve said over email that I’m eligible for the offer and can enrol by doing the above.

While I’m re-confirming this with them once again, feel free to check once with them from your end as well to make sure you’re on safer side.

Fulfilment

Axis 2x rewards on online spends fulfilment
  • Offer fulfilled on 23rd June 2022 (both for Feb & March 2022 campaign)

While the offer has been fulfilled, I see a mismatch in the # of bonus points credited. I’ve raised a ticket with Axis to see if it helps.

Further, I also see that the t&c is updated with different max caps than what found initially.

Ideally, if everything works well, you would have got upto 18K bonus points on online spends for each month.

Bottomline

It looks like the planetary positions for Axis is amazing for Feb 2022. The good news about Magnus new milestone benefit along with this offer & extension of 10X & 20X promo on Axis Travel Edge when HDFC smartbuy 10X program is getting trimmed has given an edge for Axis to sell their Magnus more easily.

That said, you’ll need to be aware that all promos are short-lived and once there are enough people in the room, the reality will be back.

So, as always, make hay while the sun shines but don’t expect them to shine forever. 🙂

    Thanks Siddharth for sharing.

    Yesterday evening I got to know this offer via notification from Axis Mobile app.

    Funny that while the same no. for registration worked for 2 family members, for me when I called that no., just few seconds later got a message from SBI Cards saying “Congrats for successful registration on Virtual Card”. No message from Axis unlike others

    Not sure what it means… will be checking with SBI Cards today anyways.

    Hi Siddharth

    I am looking for a credit card which gives the best cashback for paytm wallet loading. Paytm charges 2.3 to 2.65% for wallet loading with credit card.

    Which is the best credit card for paytm wallet loading which gives cashback greater than or equal to 2.65%?

      Most cards don’t give any reward points on wallet loading. Just use debit cards or UPI or upto 4k via uber/Zomato. Earlier Citi had facility for free wallet load upto 1Lakh. Now, Amazon pay ICICI gives 1% and IDFC first gives 1.5% (2.5% above 20K) for wallet loading.

      Use Zomato Paytm wallet linking for upto 4k per month per account. Otherwise use Rent Payment and transfer money to account through Paytm rent payment at 1% and load wallet using debit card.

      SC Ultimate as it gives 3.3% for all kinds of usage. No restrictions whatsoever so far.

        Thanks but looks like they stopped issuing this card. Their website clearly states that. Any other suggestions?

          From February 11th, 2022, they’ve started taking new application for it through its online channel. I applied on 11th and it took 4 days for approval. Existing SC card holders have the edge, only existing card verification is going on.

      Hi Yogi, a few years back I got Axis Neo Card LTF via BB whereas sourcing directly with Axis included Fees.

      So, I would say no harm if you want the card.

      PS: Though be ready to get multiple calls from BB team 🙂

    In general Amazon Pay load money is considered wallet load or it is treated differently than other wallets like paytm, freecharge etc?
    How does CC billing identify Amazon pay load money vs amazon purchase?

    I took a magnus card, though the card has come in 2 days but the registration process for the card itself is so flawed…on top of it the customer care for the same is dumb af…they don’t know anything at all …I mean the dumbest ever…worse than hdfc, stanc and sbi who I have cards with…I was so angry I almost asked them to cancel the card….the worst ever, really…you must experience it yourself to understand it

    As per RBI guidelines, on implementation of unique customer identification code, only single Customer ID will be maintained across all relationships for a customer and other Customer IDs will get suspended. In view of the same, all your existing Axis Bank add-on Credit Cards will be discontinued w.e.f 15th Mar’22. You may continue to use your existing Credit Cards mapped to your Primary Customer ID hassle free.

    Message from axis..is that mean all my add on cards will be suspended??

      I have applied to a few Axis Bank Cards (self and family). All were always delivered to communication address.

        But what if you are in some other town (than your communication address)? And you are not able to change communication address for some reason.
        Does Axis send it to nearest branch?

    Hi Siddharth

    What is the process for setting credit limit on axis cards? I recently got a Acis Vistara Infinite card and have got only 30k credit limit on the same while I have already paid 10k+taxes as fees which I belive will get reversed once I make 1.2 lac usage in first 90 days of getting the card. However I am extremely displeased with the credit limit / Axis customer care and Axis credit card erratic messaging service – I sometimes don’t get any intimation when card is swiped while other times multiple messages are sent.

    I am only a credit card customer of Axis, so wanted to know if there is a credit card app similar to what amex has?

    In the first 45 days have found Axis services far worse than any other card I have used so far. My regular usage cards are amex platinum travel and HDFC diners black.

    Hearing from March 15th, 2022 no cashback for Rent payments (MCC– 6513) on Axis Ace cards (along with some other changes). is it limited to ace card only or none of axis cards will get any cash back/rewards on rent payments?

      Received same mail for both ace card and flipkart card. No cashback means less usage Seems like remaining banks will follow the trend soon..

      Might still earn points for paying through redgirraffe on payzapp. Checked with redgirraffe whats their merchant code for rent payments, they replied they dont have a merchant code. Even hdfc tracks it as insurance payment. Where RP may not work is platforms like nobroker.

    @kapil Arora did you apply for through card on card basis or your ITR? You should try dropping a mail to their grievance department regarding your credit limit

    @siddharth Got an email communication from axis bank regarding changes in Flipkart Axis Bank Credit Card. They revised the cashback now. Earlier other transactions used to get 1.5% cashback but now it will 2% cashback. I think now Flipkart Axis is the best co-branded credit card.

      Seriously? I didn’t get any such mail. Can you share any official link. I thought they will move ace to 1.5%. And u r saying Flipkart card to 2%, seems unbelievable.

    Guys & Gals,

    It seems Axis is offering Credit Card limit enhancement.

    I got a generous offer to increase limit from 3 L to 7 L in one account and from 4.1 L to 7 L in another account. One of the accounts was not eligible here

    Is it credited for both February and March? I got only 500 points which matches with February spends, but had a lot more spends in March. Didn’t get any points for those.

      I can see the bonus points on a card that had spends only on March, so I guess they fulfilled the offer for both Feb & March. Wish they had mentioned the month in rewards stmt description!
