Axis Bank Makes Major Changes In Magnus Credit Card; Check Details Here

New Delhi: Axis Bank’s Magnus credit card, once highly regarded, may lose some of its appeal following the bank’s Friday announcement that it would devalue rewards on the card and exclude certain purchases from earning points. Axis Bank has announced that it will be making some changes to its Magnus credit card effective September 1, 2023. One of the changes is that the annual welcome benefit of a Tata CLiQ voucher will be discontinued for new cardholders.

Changes From September 1

With effect from September 1, the bank has made the decision to reduce the value of rewards on the card and stop some payments from collecting reward points, according to a notification posted on the bank’s website on Friday. The action itself represents a U-turn by Axis Bank from an earlier decision to enact an even tighter devaluation of reward points, as per BQ Prime.

“We review our product features and customer offerings from time to time. This exercise is done to ensure that we are able to provide the best-in-class features to our customers sustainably,” Axis Bank noted in the notification announcing the adjustments.
